Time goes slowy..

Okay...this time I'm going to have to disagree with Madonna! Time is flying by the last few weeks! It seems like only yesterday that we put in the offer on our house. One week from today we are suppose to close! It seems like we were super busy the first week, then had some down time before inspection and then it was busy again. And the last few weeks have been pretty quiet. But it was honestly, the quiet before the storm.
Over the past few weeks I've been slowly getting things together for the house, but in the last three days I've really had to kick it into high gear! Yesterday was full of running errands and making phone calls trying to schedule things and coordinating things for the move itself. We have decided to keep our condo and rent it out, so there are a whole list of things that need to be done before we can rent it out.

We drove by the house the other day and were SO happy to see the "Sold" marker on the sign!

I've been holding out on the pictures of the house on the blog because I didn't want to prematurely post pictures only to have the house deal fall through. That would have only been salt in the wound to see the pictures on my blog as a reminder. But without further adieu, here are some pictures of our home!


Our Great Room :) Will be our dance floor until we get furniture that was just a few pictures out of the piles of one's I've taken! :) But I'm super excited to get into the house and into our new routines! It's crazy to think that the day is just around the corner, but we can't wait to have the yard for the dogs! The boys will be so happy just running around and rolling around in the grass. :)

I apologize for being so absent with regards to the blog, but as you can only imagine things have been crazy and hectic! Here's one hint NOT buy a house with someone unless your relationship is strong. Holy hell...if we didn't have such a strong relationship we'd have killed each other during this process! It's stressful, but it's all worth it! :)

Well I'm off to schedule some more appointments...okay...I'm lying...I need a glass of wine! But here's one final picture for's pretty disgusting so I hope you can handle it. The boys are snuggling on their bed...


  1. WOW! Congratulations Jelly Beans! So, a couple things...1) the house is gorgeous 2) don't ever apologize for needing a glass of wine!!!! and 3) I MISS YOU GUYS!!! So happy you guys are doing so well and I hope to see you sometime soon! xoxo!

  2. Woo-hoo! Thanks for sharing the pictures and hoping that you're having a Happy Closing Day! Here's to that moment when you look around and say to each other "oh, my this really is ours."
