This one, in fact. :) I LOVE it. And I'm five minutes (instead of two hours) from Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Costco, Apple Store, etc. (And TONS of eligible bachelors.) Woo hoo!! :)

I love the colors of the walls. Really pretty.

Thanks very much. :) But, actually, I think we'll eventually be repainting the accent wall something in the reds/rusts or greens/olives. Blue doesn't really go with anything we have. :)

Love it! I used Frida Kahlo's Mexico city Blue House colors when I had my interior walls repainted after moving into my place in Sonoma six years ago!

We looked at a couple of lovely places that were done that way, with Spanish tile and bright colors. If we'd gotten a place like that, we'd leave it. But it will probably be changed eventually. :)

Funny, but Frida Kahlo is the first thing that came to mind when I saw that blue wall. I love it. Congratulations. And I hope to say that again when you zoom in on one of those eligible bachelors.

Thanks, everyone! When I finish getting the place all put together (which unfortunately includes covering up the ugly-ass trailer-trash chain link fence with white plastic strips in the back yard), y'all can come over for a pool party. :)

It takes discipline to save money for a down payment, good for you.

Wonders who"we" is when you are still excited about eligible bachelors.

"We" is me and my best friend, Vicki. :)

And it really didn't take any discipline. I got it all from last year's tax refund. :)
