New House Pics

I do plan on writing an actual post soon, but for now here are a few new pics of the house. Still a little boring, but at least there is now something to show on the inside. They are supposed to be installing lighting today. We're still on schedule to close on October 8th, and I can't wait!!! My interior paint colors actually turnd out to be a good bit lighter than I had wanted, so I'll probably be spending some time at good ol' Home Depot picking out new colors, but I guess lighter is better than darker. And, who knows? Maybe once the flooring and everything else is in I'll like it...

Another Door Opens!!!

Well, after one door closes, usually another one opens. That is what has happened for me over the past couple of weeks. I found out last night that the builder of the house that I wanted accepted my offer! I'm totally thrilled and freaked out at the same time! I'm now in the process of picking everything out...from paint colors, to hardware, tile, light fixtures, etc. I love to do that kind of thing, so that is the exciting part! The freak out part is just how broke I'm going to be after I gain this house note! Not exciting, but I think I can deal with it to be able to live somewhere that I feel safe and comfortable. The builder says it should be ready sometime around the second week of October. We'll see...

I'm going to try to keep this updated with pictures of the progress. Here is one (horribly angled) picture of the front of the house about two weeks ago. Not much to show of the inside, so I'll refrain from posting boring pictures of blank, unpainted walls with no cabinetry or trim. I hope to have a housewarming party sometime after I'm settled in, so y'all will have to come out to see me!

One Door Closes

I know it's been a while! I've stayed very busy lately with work, moving, etc! I don't have any really exciting news to share, but just wanted to update to let everyone know I'm still here. For anyone who doesn't know, everything was final last Thursday, so I am now a single girl. It's pretty strange, but I'm just ready to move on with my life and see what's in store for the future!

I've been looking at houses and also apartments. I'm having a hard time deciding whether to rent or buy. I know the market is great right now to buy, so I'm leaning more towards that, but I also might rent for about 6 months just to get everything in order. We'll see!! I'll keep everyone updated! I'm actually going to look at a pretty great house tonight after work. I don't have my hopes up though, because the last two that I did that with were pretty big disappointments. This one seems to have potential. It's pretty large and has 4 bedrooms, but it is a little older. I'm definitely considering getting a roommate or two, so if anyone knows of someone looking for a place to live let me know! (They have to like dogs!! I'll have my two little ones with me!!)

Anyway, other than that I'm just super excited that it's football season! I went to Starkville this past weekend for the big "W" against Southeastern Louisiana, and I'm going back this weekend for Bulldog Bash. Hope to see a bunch of you there! Also, I hope I remember my camera this time, so I may have some pictures to post! Have a great week!!
