In June 2011 we got married. July 1, 2011 we bought our first house and started moving in. We are a family of three: wife, husband, and our cat Kirky. We are anxious and excited to see where the future takes us, and we are ready to blog about our adventures, and mishaps, in being first-time homeowners in Oakland, California. We strive to live an eco-friendly lifestyle, love DIY projects, and frugal shopping. We both work full time, and therefore the house projects are usually done on the weekends. Thanks for following along with us as our adventure begins.
