It's Almost Moving Day!

It's been a while!  On top of the craziness of working full time this year, we are getting ready to move into a new home.  We were originally going to build a new home, but after selecting a lot and plans,  making arrangements with the builder,  etc... we opted not to.  Why?  The price kept going up.  The price we were originally quoted somehow climbed to more than $40,000 by the time we were about to break ground.  Casey and I decided that we enjoy living life (vacations, shopping, etc..) too much to be strapped to a house.  So....we found a beautiful home that needed just a little cosmetic updating and decided to go for it!  We are closing this week on it and have been busy painting and making some updates.  I'm really excited to move and am hoping I will still have a little bit of energy left at the end of it.

We bought our current home over 7 years ago when Abby was a newborn and have made so many great memories here.  I'm a little sad to leave it but we had just completely outgrown it.  The new house is double the size of this one so we'll have plenty of room to stretch out!  I'll be posting some pictures soon. 

Hope all my blogger friends are doing well!  We are enjoying a day off for a "snow day".  After painting all weekend, it's nice to relax.  Pictures coming soon!

You're alive! So great about the new house even if the first one didn't turn out the way you wanted. Congrats!
