House update!

This will be the family room but is currently our art storage room.
I'm interrupting the tomato series to show you how the house is coming along. I haven't posted about the house in a long time because, well, it didn't look that great. There are only so many times that you can post pictures of dust, plaster and floors covered in cardboard boxes.

After the hardwood floors went in, despite the fact that the baby room/ workshop is still a disaster and the second bathroom is nowhere near done, we decided that it was time to clean up and start moving in. Dave and I spent the better part of Sunday removing the cardboard that was covering the floors, dusting, vacuuming, and unpacking our artwork and furniture. Here is what the place looks like now.  Not bad eh?

This will be our bedroom, but don't look too closely at the blinds! They are temporary and more than slightly crooked.
I can't show a bedroom pic without showing the fireplace.
Main bathroom which still needs a good cleaning, not to mention mirrors.
This is the view of what will be the dining room and kitchen. Ignore the mess! On Sunday morning it was just a dusty pile of boxes.

To end a long day of work we decided to go on a date! We hope on our bikes and rode to Bunker restaurant in Queens. The food was delicious. I have to say though, my favorite part of the night was the bike ride through Bed-Stuy, Bushwick and Ridgewood, Queens.  I hate to admit that I rarely see these parts of the city, it was wonderful riding through neighborhoods with driveways in front of every house, with beautiful views overlooking the city in Queens; industrial neighborhoods peppered with hipsters, trendy restaurants and huge immigrant families enjoying the evening on their stoops in Bushwick; and streets where literally every fire hydrant was spraying water to cool things down in Bed Stuy.
