|Guess what - we get to move to a new house on May 1st! Yay!
Here's the story... Craig's dad has wanted to buy a home here in St. Catharines that he could rent out to students and have us live there as well, to sort of manage the place. We've been looking every weekend at different houses for the past month, but there was never one that was perfect the for set up we needed (separate entrances, separate kitchens, etc.). But last week we looked at one that, at first glance, did not seem like it could work. Ater looking at it a while though we figured out a way to make it so that Craig and I could live on the main floor and essentially be cut off from the basement and upstairs, which could be made into one 4 bedroom "house" for students to live in. It's hard to imagine but to make a long story short, the house is now officially owned by my pops-in-law and we are moving in May 1st! I'm so excited to get out of this tiny little basement suite with the over-bearing land lady. Here's some pics of our part of the house:

There's 2 bedrooms on our floor, each pretty big. Best of all though is that there is lots of light. Living in a dark basement has been harder than I ever could've imagined it would be. Also, we don't have a private entrance and our land lady is constantly coming through our apartment to do laundry or get something. This new home is like a dream come true for me, and because the home is owned by Craig's parents, we will have so much more freedom to decorate and landscape and really make it our own. Very exciting!
