On the Eve of New Years Eve

Life in general... is awesome. Adam and I hit 5 months married tomorrow!! I just told him this right now, and he high fived me. Yeah, we are romantic like that. :)

150-some-odd days of waking up next to my favorite person in the entire world. I am so lucky. :) So again, Happy five little months of sweet married life to uuuuuusssss! Haha. Time has really flown by. It's always so sweet to intentionally take time out from the crazy schedules and busyness of life to step back, take a deep breath, and reflect on this little road that is ours. I know in the blink of an eye, we'll be clinking glasses over several other milestones in our life (our-hopefully-soon-to-be-home)!

On that note, I guess I knew that this buying-a-house process was going to be nutty, but until you actually go through it, like anything, you don't fully understand. It's been a very busy week, and I've got details coming out my ears! But overall, so far it's been going well... and thankfully we've got lots of people to pester all day long with all our questions, while poor Adam is still working hard with hockey. We have our nightly "house re-cap" each day, and we're getting it done! But ay-yi-yi...! My mind needs to go to Maui for a long weekend, let me tell you! LOL

In another buying-our-first-home milestone moment, we had the inspection last week and it went well! Nothing crazy or unexpected arose -- we were pretty much expecting what came up on this little demo charmer. And we are up for the challenge. :) As the inspector crawled around the house in the 78 degree weather (yay), Adam and I looked around dreaming up ideas for how to "decorate" it. We came up with great plans and we are SO excited! I'm now trying to throw myself into all the magazines I've been hoarding these past weeks to really narrow down some specifics about style and design. Darlene Healy, I need to make a date with your magazine collection sometime soon too! I LOVE this part. Okay, I'm deviating from my thoughts. We told the bank about the inspection and they said to get quotes! So we are hoping it's because they are willing to fix up some of the findings. Will keep you posted...
Well, have a great Eve of New Years Eve!!!
