GTA IV Special Edition

My bday present finally came. The special edition comes with the game,
a real safe deposit box with keys, a rockstar keychain, a book of art
from the game, a rockstar gym bag, and a cd with the music from the
game. I preordered from Amazon so they gave me a free real license
plate too. Time to game with my brother tonight!

We have a new home!


Well after a bit of bartering we accepted the seller's final offer. Pending a failed pest inspection or something seriously wrong with the home our closing will be May 30th. We sign the papers tonight!

The home is 2375 square feet, 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath with a 2 car garage. It is on a 1/2 acre lot, with lake views across the street. Also has deeded lake access so we own 1/45 of a lot that has a boat ramp on it for our use anytime. The ramp is just around the corner from our house. Cathedral ceilings in the main living areas and 9ft ceilings throughout. Sprinkler system, custom alarm system and whole house audio/video system built in.

We are very happy!

The House

We ended up rescinding our offer on the house today since the seller
would not agree to our conditions on the termites. So the search
continues!

The new bed

My boss finally tipped me on a few of the really good furniture
outlets around town. Most are dealers only like where we got this bed,
and are not open to the public. Luckily my bosses wife is a dealer so
we can get in. Century Furniture bed that was discontinued. Only piece
left out of the set, retail $3200, bought for $275.

Beautiful piece of furniture, trying to talk him down in price on an
amazing entertainment armoire next.

Update

I know I haven't posted in a bit and that's because we are getting a new house! We put in the offer today and it was accepted by the seller. It is a for sale by owner deal so no agents are involved.

Home Inspection passed with just minor problems that the seller will need to fix but we hit a snag yesterday when the termite inspection failed. I have a carpenter coming today to look at the property to see what needs to be done.

Hope for the best....
