July 2010 Movin' on Up!
After the success of TLC, we were able to stop doing odd jobs like tutoring and Celeste was finally able to quit working for Perry's. We rented a townhouse in the Sunset Heights area of Houston and converted the entire 1st floor into a kitchen area. The owner's of the townhouse were just desperate to get someone to rent it because the recession prevented them from selling it. We told them were gonna operate a food business out of it and they were like, okay please just sign here! So, we had a custom built U-shaped island built that went from the dining room to the living room. Now we could instead of just 8 to 10 people in a class, we could accommodate 16 to 20. And now we had an awesome back yard for a grill! We were elated.
