Today's the big day!

Our closing is in just a few hours. We will officially take ownership of our amazing dream house today! I am so excited I can't even tell you. There's a LOT to get done in the next few days, but I know we'll eventually be settled in and I'm so looking forward to that!

The kids are way excited, too! Especially since we took their beds apart yesterday (leaving their mattresses on the floor) and they were beyond excited to sleep in their "crazy beds" last night (and again tonight). The movers arrive bright and early tomorrow morning, so tonight will be our last night in our current home. I've spent almost 10 years here... almost 7 of them married to my sweetie pie, and almost 5 of them as a mommy. Hubs and I were talking last night and I realized I'm pretty sure I've lived in this house longer than I've ever lived in any other house ever in my life! It's crazy to think we brought both of our babies home to this house and we're saying good-bye to it. Kind of surreal, but at the end of the day, I'm looking forward to having a new home with the space we need where we can make new memories as a family!

This afternoon will be busy as hubs and I are planning to put up 20 sets of blinds (ack!) after the closing and possibly install our garage door opener, too. The kitchen backsplash is on the agenda at some point during the next few weeks, but we've also got a good bit of work to do in our current house to get it ready to put on the market, so it definitely won't be done as soon as I'd like it to be. Our goal is to have the house ready to list no later than April 1st, so you can imagine our "To Do" list for both homes is quite lengthy and will be very time-consuming, too.

Okay, so enough house drama. Here are some pics of the kiddos!

LO was on fire at her t-ball practices this week! Check out that stance! I overheard one of the people watching her practice on Saturday point to her and say that "she must be the coach's daughter" because she was in a killer stance, poised and ready to practice her fielding. I laughed to myself... seems my girl has a bit of an athlete in her!

Love it when the kids get along and play nicely together. :)

Enjoying a hot day with some fun, refreshing water play!

Another hot day... hitting the swings after LO's baseball practice.

A bit blurry, but love my boy cheesin' it out for the camera!

For those who are interested, here's a little video clip of LO's t-ball practice on Saturday. The team practiced fielding, catching, hitting off a tee and hitting off coach's pitches. I took this video of her going to town on the coach's pitches (notice my little lefty!).


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm so happy for you guys!!! :) :)
