Today is finally here! There for a couple of months, I was certain this day would never come… It seems there are plenty of homes on the market, for fair prices, and people are ready to start buying, but the banks are unwilling to loan out the dough. However, we finally got all the approval needed and our closing is today!
The hubs and I are finally moving into our new home. We get the keys and we can start settling finally! This hotel living for the last 3 months has started to get a little bit old… and small… and smelly (thanks to the dog)!
This called for a celebratory cupcake! Don’t worry, Ace didn’t get any chocolate.
I’m absolutely thrilled for this new chapter in our lives, but incredibly anxious at the same time. It seems like there is so much to do, and so little time off from work to do it. We are going to take the advice of some close friends and family, and try to live in the space for awhile before doing any major renovations, but a few coats of paint all over wouldn’t hurt. I’m not sure how quickly we are going to tackle removing wallpaper and paneling, but I’ll be sure to take before and after shots of our work, and describe how
we Jade did everything. Thank goodness I have a handy husband!
Hopefully, with the help of my awesome co-workers, we will get all moved in on Sunday, and spend our first night in our new home. Eek!
Now back to the celebratory cupcake… nom nom nom nom
