Moving In and Dave's Broken Nose

We are officially moved in to (read: "all our crap is now within the walls of") the Barefoot House. Here are some pics of our first hours:

Piles, piles, everywhere...

But, at least we have the letter magnets on the fridge. Evie's doing her part.

The kids' room "undone".

Voila! I can deal with piles of c.r.a.p. as long as beds are made, right? See the ladder going up to the boys' sleeping loft? I don't have a good pic of it yet, but if you make this bigger you can see the edge with the rail.

Check out the concrete bed frame. It's all about the concrete here in Mexico. I, myself, was a nonbeliever. But, now, I've seen the light.

Ahhh. Just in time for bed. Still need to find a king duvet cover. Not so easy to find down here. You must click on this pic to make it bigger and check out the painting above our bed. It's just the coolest. We scored it for $1100 pesos or about $88 U.S. I just love it.

Before...

After.

We named our casa "Barefoot House" because the pool looks just like a foot (and because Casa Huella - is just too hard to say). Then we chanced upon Barefoot wine, which excited us very much, yes it did. We bought a bottle at the Mega, and last night we opened it to celebrate our first night in our little casita. Check out the acid stained concrete countertop with pebble aggregate in the kitchen. We're pretty excited about that, too.

And, lastly, Dave broke his nose surfing. He took a spill and his board popped up and kadoogied him right in the nose. The good news? It was "the best wave of my life". Dude.
P.S. I think that shade of purple does wonders for his turquoise eyes. Don't you?

The house looks amazing. What a great experience and many more memories to come. That's funny that you found Barefoot wine in Mexico. That is the wine we served at our wedding.
