Awesome Wife +Craigslist = Killer Deals

For those that don't already know, about three years ago Morgan was able to find us a $600 Pottery Barn table (and chairs) for $10! Today drove to Dayton (about 50 mins away) and bought a $1800-$2400 gas range and oven for only $400! I don't know how she does it but she can smell a deal a mile away!
This is not the exact one that we bought but is the same make and model. I'll take a picture of it when we bring it to the new house.

Tomorrow (Sunday) we are going to do our final walk through of the house and we might even be able to close and get keys on Monday! If not Monday, our close date is Wednesday the 20th.

I PROMISE to take picture tomorrow when we do the walk through...won't be until 5pm though.

After we got home with the stove, we went to our new neighbors house (friends of ours) and built two 4'x4'x10" planter boxes and a worm harvester - We'll use this to separate the worms from the castings in about a month. I was hoping to be able to use it to separate the rabbit manure from the pine shavings but I need to build another one with chicken wire that is smaller the 1/4".

We built the boxes at our friend's house so that once we close we will be all set to drop the boxes in the ground, add dirt and plant. We are pushing the planting window but I think we'll be okay...although I still haven't ordered our dang potatoes.

We are also going to get some measurement for the kitchen tomorrow and start planning the layout out. You can see our possible color choices at Morgan's blog here. Please be sure to leave a comment and vote for your favorites.
