Moving next month. I will still be an apartment dweller, but it is so much nicer than my current place! I will actually have counter space and a closet than can fit all of my clothes!!! Oh and valet trash service, which is my fav cause I’m lazy 🙂

Moving in hopefully a month from now depends on when closing is!

Good bye to living with his dad, and having no room for all our stuff.  And the big backyard and deck, which I am sad about. And my great friend who lives across the street, also sad about. And not paying rent/mortgage what I am SUPER sad about (hey, it would be great to not have to pay to live there, right??)

Hello to having our very own house, and being alone for the first time ever!


Can’t wait to see pics of everyone’s new place!

We close this month but since we have to do some remodeling we are actually waiting until we come back from our honeymoon to move in.

I am saying goodbye to living with my parents. Goodbye to my dad leaving protein shakes around the house. Goodbye to my mom removing the tissue box from my nightstand, she can’t stand anything that you can see in plain site so she removes everything and she drives me crazy. They aren’t really bad but some little things just drive me crazy.

And goodbye to someone else doing the food shopping and paying the mortgage and all of the utilities.

But I am saying hello to, my own house! With my own rules on my own terms. Hello to living with Fiance for the first time and having our alone time. I am getting excited about being able to have company over to my place!

My Fi was opposed to us living together before marraige. My lease was up in December so my landlord is letting me live month to month until the wedding… so I will move my stuff in this month for our May 2 wedding and come live with him after the wedding.


I am not so super excited because his house is older and smaller than my townhouse. :o(  But HOPEFULLY we will be putting an offer on a log house we LOVE LOVE LOVE this summer. Cross your fingers for me girls!


That brings me to another question, how to I tell him I want to speed up this new house thing when he’s so attached to his curren home? I feel like he thinks I hate his house (ok, on some levels I do) but I don’t want to hurt his feelings… but I don’t want to live there! He HITS HIS HEAD ON HIS CEILING FAN!!!! OMG!!!

YES! Today brings 36 days!!!

Can’t wait to stop paying my landlords mortgage.

Can’t wait to decorate, paint, work in the yard, plant a garden, actually meet our neighbors (ive never met anyone on my street in the 2+years I’ve been in the our apartment). Sooo Soooo Soooo excited!

And mostly I am excited for the roller coaster that is applying for a mortgage to be over with. Ahhh 🙂

Oh and I also can’t wait for Christmas time in the house. Because I have visions of the Christmas tree infront of our big picture window, and lights in the front of the house.

Oh my God…I want to move in RIGHT NOW!!

35 Days until we close!

I’m looking forward to the following:

  • No more loud upstairs neighbors who decide to pack for a vacation at 2 AM and roll their heavy suitcases back and forth all. night. long.
  • No more awful parking garage where people speed around the corners at 30 mph and look at you like you are in the wrong for coming around a corner at the posted speed limit.  I’m sorry for “getting in your way”
  • No more mixed food smell every single night.  I’m tired of our hallway reeking of curry + fish + fajitas + whatever else people are cooking that night
  • No more 70 mile round trips to spend time with the family twice a week
  • Decorating!!!  I get to paint walls and buy new furniture and create a beautiful home for us to share!

11 days for me.

I will be saying goodbye to: my stupid frat boy neighbor who has 20 people in a 500 square foot apartment every Friday night for a drunken party.  This is no exaggeration.  Every single night since the past June.  They yell and scream and break beer bottles until at least 3 in the morning.  We have called the police three times, resulting in someone gettng arrested, and have gone to the apartment managers twice.  It also came to a head one weekend where I lost my mind and got in their faces at about 1:00 on a Saturday morning.

We’re breaking our lease because of it…and not paying the fee because those neighbors violated my “reasonable expectation of quiet”. 

And we’ll be starting our cross country drive in only 8 days!
