I have bad news and good news.

Bad news first. No more posts about the ugly condo because (the good news)…..


We bought a house!



We closed two weeks ago and we’ve been scraping popcorn ceilings since. I’ll share more later, but I wanted to share a few things that have happened since I posted last time!

ONE. We got to meet our nephew! It was wonderful and I love him! I don’t think that my sister wants his picture all over the internet shared with the few people who read this, so I’ll keep pictures all to my self. 🙂 We had a great visit in May and my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew are all doing great!

TWO. We bought a house! Did I mention that already? 🙂 We (mostly Matt) had been keeping an eye on what was available in the area so we knew what type of house we’d like to get and in what price range. This one came on the market on a Sunday, we looked at it on a Monday and were under contract on a Tuesday! It’s really incredible – I still can’t believe it!

THREE. I got picked to be an advanced reader for Emily Freeman’s new book Simply Tuesday. I started crying when I got the email. I am a huge fan of Emily Freeman and her writing and her new book does NOT disappoint so far! It’s fantastic. I’ll share more as I’m able. 🙂

FOUR. The condo is in the best shape of its life. All of the paint it touched up, the kitchen finally got completely finished, and I picked up some tips on staging. It’ll be sad to move out of the condo but I’ll get over it!

That’s about all that’s been going on… a lot of house and condo work while we try to stay cool in this crazy heat we’ve been having. I’m trying to savor this time and not get too focused on the to do list or the next thing – after we’re moved in, after the condo sells, etc.

Happy Friday! 🙂
