So I've been awol for awhile!! BUSY, BUSY!!

Packing, packing and more packing!!

I know this doesn't look like much but this is just what is in our hallway. Trying to keep most of it hidden in the bedrooms! Most is already in a storage building. I'll have to take a pic to prove that it doesn't take long to acquire a lot of crap, eh, stuff!
I actually just received a call while typing this from the realtor. Closing is still on for August 6. We do another walk through next week so I will be sure and take my camera to get all of my before pics before we start moving in. I will need a lot of help from everyone with decorating ideas in just a few weeks!!


A Sick 2 Year Old

She's finally smiling. After 3 days of a high fever and the doc telling us it's something viral, nothing we can do, she's finally getting back to her old self. As you probably noticed, the orange mouth. Ya, that's m&m's.
See the red spot on her leg? I'm definitely keeping an eye on this. The other thing the doc told us is that Roseola acts a lot like this and after the fever comes a rash that covers the whole body! So far I only noticed this spot on her leg but this could be a reaction to anything, so I sprayed a little benadryl on it and am going to see if it goes away. If not, I guess a call back to the doc is inevitable! No one ever told me before having her that the doc would become my new best friend! Just a heads up would've been nice!! LOL!

So with all of this, plus having to work and be on-call for July, a company picnic and everyday life, I've been pretty busy!!

Here's to hoping things mellow out a bit once we get all moved in!
Hey! A girl can Dream!!

Paperwork for the loan has all been signed. Should only take a couple of weeks to wrap up and then we can close on the house!! I am ecstatic!!


I am looking forward to getting to decorate and begin making all of the projects I have in mind. There will be lots to come within the next month or so.


Does anyone else feel like this week is dragging on? Boy is it! I am looking forward to a semi-relaxing weekend with my baby girl and hubby. Only plans is to get everything packed for the move. We don't have much since we've been staying with my Dad, but it's enough to keep me busy for a while!


May have to make a trip to the lake or plan a picnic and park adventure for Avari. I'll let her decide what she wants to do......


A little update on Avari: She is doing soooo good in school. Her vocabulary has expanded alot since starting a month and a half ago. She's still not quite on the potty training bandwagon yet, but I still think she is a little too young and has no interest in it what-so-ever! It will take time and I think, be easier in our new house. No Carpet downstairs so I can let her run around naked and keep the potty down there. We'll see how it goes. She has also developed this little personality that I can't help but giggle at! I just wish I could catch some of the stuff she says or does on video. She's very vocal about what she wants and what she doesn't like and a little bossy to boot. She tells Daddy all the time "Don't do that" or tells us "Goes right there" when we put something someone "she thinks" it's not supposed to go and moves it. She's a stinker but the light of my life and I couldn't imagine her any other way!!

Light at the End of the Tunnel

WOOHOO!!! We put an offer in on the house and they accepted!! Next step, bank! We have gotten our pre-approval and just need to go in and get things rolling for the actual loan!! I am over-the-moon happy!! Never did I think it would work out or be half as easy as it has been. There really is light at the end of this very long and dark tunnel!!


Here's a sneak peek at the house. Lot's more to come once we close and I get to start decorating! Can't wait!!!

Keeping My Fingers Crossed

We went today and looked at a house. I absolutely love it!! The realtor emailed me the name of a lady to talk to at Austin County State Bank and I am going to contact her first thing Monday morning. She also stated in her email that their is another showing on the house Monday! My heart sank when I read that. What if they have already gotten pre-approval and can put in an offer on  Monday? I am freaking out over here!! I have high hopes that we will get an approval and can make an offer but I don't want to let myself get too excited. It's just that, this house is perfect for us! Everything we want and more! I am going to keep positive and not let myself stress over it too much. Maybe, just maybe, things will work out for us! Just this once? Maybe? I sure hope so, we sure could use an easy break this time. I guess I will have to wait and see what happens on Monday! If we lose this one, then I am giving up house hunting for a while until I can be sure that we can get one that we love.

Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Avari's Photo Shoot

This was my attempt of a photo shoot for Avari. Being an amatuer, I think they turned out pretty well. Can't wait to do more! I love photography and one day hope to have a nice camera to take pics with.

ENJOY!!!
