My favorite Friday yet

Nov 18, 2011

As of 4:30 pm yesterday, I became a HOMEOWNER!!! I couldn't be more excited and I'm fully enjoying the pregnant excuse because while I work today, Ronnie and his best friend are moving our stuff in!! Tomorrow he's going to paint what rooms he can and then Sunday will be our first night in our new house! I am seriously so relieved to have the home buying process OVER AND DONE with! Since Ronnie's still a student, this house is just in my name (but it's still totally OUR house) and it was a stressful time being the only one working out all the numbers and paperwork with the lender, realtor, title company..ugh. It really wore on me but I'm glad to say it's done!! I couldn't have done it without Ronnie by my side either.

To say I look awful in these pictures is an understatement. Seriously. So if you're thinking "Yikes", I'm right there with you. But it was such an exciting day, I could care less! lol



Right after this we went out for a celebratory dinner...Normally I would've said "Margaritas!!" but since that obviously isn't an option right now, we went to our favorite little Mexican joint and pigged out. Funny how being pregnant makes me want breakfast for dinner a lot so I had some migas (a mix of scrambled eggs, cheese and corn tortilla strips) and was happy for the night :)

I'll be posting soon all about the house but for now, I'm going to relax my butt off and enjoy not having to send yet another email or text to my realtor and mortgage lender. They're awesome people and all but I'd like to not talk home buying for a long time, thank you!!

And to all of you who've been such a support throughout this process, THANK YOU!!!! If I could have every one of you over to our house, I would! Having the support of my blog friends definitely helped me keep my eyes on the prize, y'all are the BEST!

Happy Friday :D

I cannot believe how fast this has gone for you! Before we decided to build this house, we sold our old one, moved into an apartment and looked for houses for six months (and got pregnant in the meantime). Once we decided to build, it was another four months. It was awful being in limbo while pregnant. I’m so happy you aren’t going through that stress and that everything has fallen into place for your little family! It was all meant to be! And I loved that I just stood there with my pregnant belly and told everyone where things went. :) Congratulations!

YIPPEEEE!!!! I've been in my house just over a year...and still haven't figured out how I want to decorate half of it. But that's half the fun... :-)

Enjoy not having to harrass people. At the end of the process, I missed my realtor and mortgage broker!
