Hi house!

With the craziness of this week with work, I hadn't gotten the chance to just take in the fact that I'm a home owner.  That house that we've been watching be built since January is now mine.  All mine.  Well, mine and T's, but you know what I mean :-)

Last night was the first time since we closed on our house that I got the chance to just run around in it and bask in the fact that it's all ours now.  And I'm not going to is a great feeling.  I went from room to room, saying "hi kitchen....hi master bathroom....hi den....hi Mary Kay closet (yes, T is giving me a whole closet devoted to storing my Mary Kay inventory).  I think the only room I didn't say hi to was our basement, and that's because I'm not a big fan of basements.  They're cold and they smell.  So I'll let T have at that one. 

We were also surprised when we got there that they started putting in landscaping.  We have trees and shrubbery!  No grass yet, but that'll come with time.  We need to get a few days with no rain for that to happen...let's see how long that one takes. 

So this weekend we'll be spending lots of time at the new house, mostly assembling the custom closet T bought for me.  I will post pictures once we're done.  It's going to require a LOT of manual labor, but it's so going to be worth it. 

Official move-in date - Monday!  That will be one heck of a Motivation Monday, let me tell ya!

Have a great weekend everyone!
