Man, that's an intimidating list! I found some awesome velvet curtains on sale at World Market last week...if you have one in your area you should check it out!

Well.. personally I think dog should be number one :) But my priorities would be: fix windows (don't want anyone breaking in), painting (big impact for little $$), I would do baseboards when you get your flooring done if you do, until then I would keep looking for sales on rugs.. Curtains could help soften the tile too..

other jobs like the cupboards and dresser... wait until I come to town and we can bang that out in a day. It's always more fun to do those with someone else too :)

Thanks for your comment! :) You should totally buy one of the cat scratch boxes! They're also at Target for around $10. And they totally work! Our cats were clawing at the couches before we bought it. Try it out! We have one in the living room and one in the bedroom (clawing at the bed. Tsk tsk! Bad kitties!). Anyways, congrats on moving in three weeks! That's so exciting! And I'm uber jealous!
