5 years

11 years ago today Hubby asked me out over the phone, 6 years ago today Hubby asked me to be his wife on the observation deck of Reunion Tower, 5 years ago today Hubby walked down the aisle & received me as his bride, today I love him so much more than I could have imagined 11 years ago!

We Are Blessed!

Hubby & I bought a foreclosure, which means we bought a project :) from the very beginning we made a list of things that needed to get done in order of importance. We have been so blessed with family and friends helping us out that some of the less important things will be able to get done soon instead of later down the road :)
I just wanted to take a minute to thank some people.
First off all the people who helped us move! We would have been moving for weeks without you :)
Patrick's mommy gave us the ability to fix our roof, get a water heater, get pretty paint, and have double paned windows installed! Without her help our renovations would have spanned months. She is also letting us stay with her while we get some of these renovations done.
The day we moved in my adopted parents, the Kenny's, decided they wanted to renovate our shower. They have been up here almost every night since we moved our stuff in, tearing stuff up & rebuilding. Now Cathy is tiling the shower & then we will be able to officially move in & shower in our own place! This was a huge project that we knew had to get done before we could move in & they have been such a blessing doing it so that we could focus on other tasks.
Patrick's daddy hired an ac guy to install a brand new ac unit in our home, it is a beast :) He also helped Patrick install the new water heater.
My brother fixed our Internet (since he works for the company, it's nice to know people lol) and he is helping Hubby run cat-5 through the whole house.
My mommy & sister helped me paint the kitchen cabinets a beautiful shade of green (even though they don't find it as beautiful as I do lol) & they both have been trying to make sure I stay hydrated :)
My dad came over on Fathers day and started fixing some of our electrical problems. He & my brother made a list of electrical things he is going to fix.
We are so blessed with wonderful people in our lives! It would have taken us months to get our home ready to move into, but with help it will only be weeks :) Thank you all soooooo much! I can't wait to have you all over for a homecooked meal!

This post is late in being written, but I still wanted to share the pics! We closed on our house 6/5, and we bought new locks & keys for our home :) On 6/6 we were finally told all the papers had been signed and we had access, it was ours!!! We have been moving & renovating ever since! I will share those stories with you soon :) thank you for being patient while I'm busy!

Moving out

Tonight I planned on telling you all about our move (which I will very soon) and then we said goodbye to the Crazy People Downstairs. So tonight I am a little sad. How do you not live with people anymore? I hugged Conner & he told me that I lived upstairs, and then the waterworks started (for me of course) I love Conner & Elias so much! How am I not going to see them everyday? I can't answer when Conner yells up the stairs at me. This family is very special to Hubby & I! & I know we will continue seeing each other & hanging out, and I know that it is late & I have been very busy & am therefore over tired & emotional :), but tonight I am a little sad.

We have a close date!!!

Tuesday June 5th, 2012 Hubby & I will be first time home owners!!! :) We have already gotten homeowners insurance, and today we called and set up our electricity, gas, water, and internet! We are ready to go! Once we close & get the keys Hubby & his dad are going to fix the A/C and install a new water heater & I will begin painting. Then we will start moving all our stuff next weekend! I can't wait to start making this house our home! I will post pics of the progress :)
