Today at 3 p.m. Hubby B and I will be homeowners!!!


This day has been a long time coming, and it will officially make us the quintessential American family. You know what I'm talking about. We've got a mommy, daddy, new baby and 2 pups. Now we'll be residing in a quaint 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom {with huge fenced in backyard} home! 


Excuse my use of exclamation marks but I'm so freaking excited!!

The only catch? We're not moving this weekend...

Are you thinking, WTF? Yeah, yeah. Well, this weekend we will be painting the master bedroom, the nursery and an accent wall in the living room. And? I just think it would be too much for us to try to do all that and move this weekend. Plus, I want to be sure any paint fumes are all cleared out before bringing Baby J to his new room.

So, what does this mean for my lovely readers?

A lot of home photos for starters. A lot of before & afters. A lot of DIY tips and I mean alot. Hubby B is big on DIY and thinks he is the handiest of handy men. This means? A lot of comical stories about all of our projects.

Are you as excited as me? No? Well, get excited, y'all.

On top of all this, it's FRIDAY!


  1. Sounds great - happy for you girl. Can't wait to see pictures and good luck with the painting!

  2. Congratulations! What an exciting time for you and your family. Enjoy every moment.

  6. Congratulations!! How exciting!

  7. Congratulations! That is a huge thing in today's economy to be able to afford a home and not be afraid of being laid off. My husband works for a company that makes them sign new contracts every August so we are safe until then but come August we will be sweating. So, we have stopped most of our spending and just waiting to see what happens. I am a new follower from the blog hop and following thru GFC. I would love a follow back when you get the chance.
