We own a Home!!!!
So today after 6 months of waiting and about a million different papers with our signatures on it, we are officially home owners! Yay! Our house is beautiful and we are so excited to live there. We got the keys around 4 pm along with a nice house warming gift from Centex. They gave us a nicely wrapped up box of goodies for our house ranging from a role of toilet paper to simple green cleaner to help us get started. They also gave us a gift bag with pretty orange and yellow tissue paper coming out the top. Not sure the protocol on what to do, we decided to wait to open the gift later inside our new home. So when we got there we opened the pretty gift bag to find... NOTHING! (Is that really what she said?) Yes that's what I said! A beautifully wrapped present of nothing but air. Haha, I mean I know the economy's bad right now, but has it really come down to giving people empty gift bags to show your appreciation? Haha we thought it was funny. We're still not sure why we got that, if they forgot to put something inside, or if that's what they meant to give us, but it was funny all the same. :) Anyways, so we move in tomorrow officially and we can't wait to get started living there. Randy already has a million projects brewing in his head that he can't wait to get started on. I have to keep reminding him that it's all in good time. Here a little, there a little. But we're so excited and hope you can all come see our new home one day soon :)
