House Progress and the Reality of Moving

So we have been working our little booties off on our house for the last two weeks.  My knees and [weirdly enough] my ankles are crazy sore from all the hours spent painting, doing trim work, and moving we’ve done in the last ten days.  I don’t really know why my ankles are sore – that’s so strange to me.  Maybe because of all the up and down off the floor when I was working on the baseboards?  I don’t know.

Anyway, I do have a few pictures of some of the progress we made painting, so I will share! Continue reading

Our Other New Year’s Resolution

Good morning!

So if you read my last post you know that I, like everyone else in America, has a weight-loss-related New Year’s resolution.  It is going pretty well so far, but slow going ha!  I’ve lost three pounds.  Which always reminds me of Regina George from Mean Girls.reginageorgeAnyway, we have another really exciting resolution – Husband and I decided that we are going to buy a house this year!  Yay!!  We didn’t really want to move into an apartment after we got married, but since we had relocated from Dallas and got new jobs we weren’t able to qualify for a mortgage just yet. :(  But we knew it was something that we wanted in the near future, so it’s always been in the back of our minds.
