it's about time...

We finally did it! Homeowners are we! We were so scared to jinx ourselves that we didn't tell anybody about it. So, for those of you that feel out of the loop, you're in good company.

After months of searching and weeks of waiting, we pulled the trigger and signed are lives away. Is it wrong to be excited about decades of debt?

Anywho, we closed on Halloween, and Kell's parents were waiting, brush in hand, to help us paint (thanks, guys!). When that was finished, Haley came to help pack (thank you, too!) even though she was miffed at my lack of progress in that department. 4 days and 3 bottles of deep cleaner later, we turned in our apartment keys and are finally home! If Kell and I don’t kill each other over unpacking boxes, setting up bed frames or how many huggies to keep, maybe we’ll have you over to show off our crib. Y’all come see us now, ya hear!


(NOT our house)



PS - I'm thinking about starting the Twilight books. Should I, or am I still not over Harry Potter being over?

Hey Mary Straton...I know I'm so random, but I read your blog often because I think it's so well written! I'm a huge reader too...I think I've read each of the HPs at least 4 times, and some of them more than that. The Twilight series is great; I really enjoyed the first 3. I'll save my opinion on the 4th...You can decide for yourself.
