Christmas + House Update

I'm so so sorry that I've neglected the blog but I've been super busy with things.

First off here is a picture of us on our first Christmas together.

Aren't we so cute?!

Mike was on-call for Christmas, but he luckily didn't have to go into work. We had to stay close to home, which meant that we couldn't go to any of Mike's relatives for the holidays. So we only went to my parents' family festivities, one for my dad and one for my mom. Only two family Christmas festivities for us newly weds.

Now for a house update, the bank accepted our offer for the house. Happy Time!!! So after weeks of dealing with multiple offers, that bit is over now. We just have to wait for them to turn back on all the utilities so we can have our inspection. This is so exciting for us!!!

House Hunting . . . . Almost Finished??

I've come to the realization that if I blog about it, then something happens. We have waited almost a month for the bank to make a decision on who gets the house, I don't understand why it took soooooo long for them to pick since we all had to do our "Highest & Best" offer twice!! And voila, they pick someone. Not just any someone, but us!!!! Oh Happy Day!

Ok, so they {aka the Bank} verbally agreed to our offer. Their higher up person just has to sign the paper, which could take up to a week. This gives us time to have all of our proverbial ducks in a row before our inspection period begins. I am so beyond excited, y'all just don't even know but the realist person in me knows that if there is anything majorly wrong with this house, we are back to square one. Positive thoughts!

I'll keep y'all posted on our new adventure as grown-ups!!

House Hunting + Our First Christmas Tree

First off let me say how sorry I am that I haven't been blogging this past week. It has been so freaking C-R-A-Z-Y lately! We put an offer in on a house almost two weeks ago, so I've been stressing over that. Then last week we had to put in not just one but two "Best and Highest" offers on the house, because there were multiple offer on the table. You would think by now the Bank would pick an offer, but NO. They want me to stress out and jump every time my phone goes off. It really takes a lot out of you, but on to something way more happy.

Our first Christmas Tree as a Married Couple!!!
It's a little 3ft fake tree that I got at Hobby Lobby. It fits perfectly in our small apartment. I'm trying to make it as festive as I can!
