No Craft Fair...

First things first....we got a new camera...and I just LOVE this picture of Lucy. Cracks me up! She's so cute! She has the look "I didn't do it I swear!"
Now for official business:
So....I will not be attending the craft fair this weekend....just in case any of you were DYING to come see me!!

My excuse for backing out....
Ryan and I have been approved for a home loan, and so we are house hunting this weekend!!!!!! YAY! I feel bad for the poor RE Agent that gets to show us around...we get excited about the dumbest stuff...let me list them...for all you that are dying to know...
1. Like a dishwasher for instance...we haven't had a dishwasher since we've rented this little home...2 years now. I was afraid my hands were going to be permanently wrinkled from all that dish washing.

2. OH...and more than one bathroom!! We've been working with only ONE bathroom...let me tell you...that just doesn't work out. Especially when its the size of a closet!!

3. And....we won't have to run our dish network cable through the window anymore....the house will actually be wired for tv!

4. The power won't trip the main breaker everytime we turn the microwave on. Talk about a pain in the rear... Really ruins a perfectly good bag of popcorn...let me tell ya.

5. The garage will actually be attached to the house! No more running 10 miles from the back door to the garage to carry in groceries.

6. Ok...I think thats all...if I think of more...you can bet I'll be listing them. I don't want to forget how wondering owning our own home is going to be!!!!!!!!!!
I told you I would be back for more...
7. NO MORE UNEVEN FLOORS!!! I feel like I'm walking on a rollercoaster in my own house! Old houses have the most crappy floors ever. I have been thanking my lucky stars every day that I have came home and not found my floor caved in...
8. Mice....no more stupid mice!! I hate mice!! They crawl in Lucy's bowl and steal her food!! So NOT nice!!
9. Hmmm....normal heating units...like a furnace! And not electric heaters that heat up the wall and the window and thats it.
10. CARPET!! I can't stand hardwood floors...all they do is collect dust and it takes double the time to sweep than it does to vaccuum.
Phew.......need I complain about my renter's phobia anymore??? You get the idea... :O)

Yay!! I am excited for you guys! You will look for certain things when you look this time. Then, in about 4 years you will realize that there are a whole host of other things you should've looked for. :) That is where Jeff and I are at now. The joys of home ownership. And a mortgage to last the next 30 years. Congrats!!!

that is so cool! i love my 1and 3/4 bathrooms! haha! your house sounds like thoe one Coleman and i rented when we first got married. we were there for like 6 months, and there were mice! EEWW! and the second bedroom was like a lean-to stable -built in- freezing cold little room, and there as an owl that was always making noises outside. weird little old houses! i am excited for you though, it's a big step!
