New House!

Joe & I FINALLY closed on our new home! It has been a VERY long, frustrating process. But, we are finally home owners!

We both took a half day off work & met at the lawyer's office Friday. We got to meet the seller of the house. Her children told us she was turning 88 years old the very next day. She was very sweet & made the statement that the past 13 years in the house were the happiest of her life. She recently lost her husband & was saying how she was so lucky to have him & how every woman should have a man as good as her husband. She said she knew he was in heaven playing with the angels. We are both glad to know that we bought a "happy" home & can't wait to make many happy memories of our own.

We moved Joe into the house Saturday. It was SO rainy & muddy. My brother, Dusty, and brother-in-law, Timmy, were gracious enough to help. We definitely couldn't have done it without them. The guys ended up getting the Uhaul stuck in Joe's yard at the rental property and had to have a tow truck come pull them out. Such a messy day to move, but they got it done.


The first meal in our new home. The guys enjoyed Bojangles after working hard moving in the rain.
Our living room so far. Love our new couch & loveseat. 

I won't be moving into our home until after we are married. Only ten more weeks!  Time is really flying. 2014 has started out to be an AWESOME year.
