So to ease back into all things blogging, I will start off with an easy post...we are set to be first time homeowners in just a few short weeks!! Highly excited, highly anxious...now excuse me while I go dry heave at the thought of all this "new homeowner" responsibility!!
So naturally, I have been thinking (too much) about how much my life is going to change now that I am "growing up." Here are the top three adjustments I am worried about making:
1. Ummm, what's yard work? What do you mean that's not included in the price of the home?
2. Where is the 24-hour maintenance number I can call in case of my slightest inconvenience? For example, I recently reported to our complex manager, "my ice-maker is making funny tasting ice." Guess I am gonna have to scale back the high maintenance attitude if it's gonna impact my shopping budget. Tear drop. Tear drop.
3. New homeowner (on cloud nine) walks into local furniture store looking for furniture to furnish her new home and leaves completely distraught after seeing sticker prices. Sorry folks, you may have to sit on our folding lawn chairs when you stop by for a visit, but I hope we can still be friends. :)
I will leave you with a few pics of our home, hope you can come visit soon (closing date August 30th)! :)

God Bless this kitchen, those bad boys will be painted ASAP while I practice deferred gratification in updating my kitchen to 2011.
