Big News!!

No I haven't had the baby yet :) I still have about 3 weeks to go, although I've had a couple people ask if I'm closer than that. Because I'm so short, there's no where for our little guy to go but straight out. And don't worry there will be baby bump pictures to come. Now on to the other big news in our life. Are you ready? We're buying a house!!!!!! We've been looking at homes for the last couple weeks and found a wonderful house that has just what we need. Our offer was accepted and we will close at the end of June. A little long I know, but that gives us plenty of time to get everything packed and cleaned up and hopefully get some routine going with our new little guy. Bryson and I are so excited and feeling very grateful and blessed to not only buy our first home, but to buy this home. It's a three bedroom, two bath home, with a living room upstairs and a family room, an office and a bonus room/guest room in the basement. It has a ton of storage too! It's an older home so we have some updating to do, such as landscaping, painting, new carpet in some rooms, and new light fixtures; things like that. But we just love this home and are excited to make it our own! I'll post a couple pictures of the house so you can see where we will be living!

There she is! Don't you love the big yard?! We're on a corner lot so we have a lot of yard space around the house.

Front living room with a fireplace!

Dining Room and Kitchen. There is so much storage in the kitchen! I'm going to have cupboards that I don't know what to do with. some point the carpet in the dining room will be gone.

Master Bedroom. Yes I know you all love the pink carpet but alas, it has to go. :)

Main Bathroom.

With a little paint this girl's room will become a wonderful nursery for our little boy!

Downstairs Family Room. With a little updating it's going to be a wonderful place to hang out! :)

Our backyard deck.

Backyard. We don't have much of a backyard, but like I said before our front and side yards are huge so it makes up for the smaller space behind the house.


  1. AWESOME! We can't wait to visit!

  2. Congratulations! Home ownership is a big step, but it sure makes being grown-up more real than ever before! I've been wondering when your little baby was going to be on his way.... If you're me, you'll have than bundle in your arms in only a week. You. never. know.

  3. My first thought was "I LOVE the pink carpet!"

    No, not really. But congrats on the new home! I'm so jealous!!

  4. That is very exciting. Lots of changes coming your way!

  5. Congratulations on the new home! Oh, and happy belated birthday old man. :-)
