We have sod!

I looked at my calendar today and we have 18 more days until we move in! Which means only two more weekends stuck in the apartment after this weekend. Several people always ask to see pictures of our house and unfortunately I never have anything to show them, so I thought I would post some updated pictures!

Here is our kitchen... not the greatest picture, but you get the idea of our cabinets and backsplash.

Here is our family room with our fireplace!

This is the finished outside our of our house! We cannot wait to move!

I have more pictures as you can imagine, but do not really want to bore everyone. I figured this was just enough to wet peoples' appetites. Now you all will have to come visit once we move in to get the full tour!!

I love school supplies!

As Allyn is taking her nap right now, I am getting the TV to myself which means no Finding Nemo at least for this hour. It is great because I can actually watch HGTV, but now I am constantly being teased by back to school commericals.

I really cannot believe that it is almost time for school to start again. When I was teaching I absolutely dreaded this part of the summer. It is like you are cling to every free moment that you have because you know that in two weeks it is back to the nitty gritty. The only thing that made it somewhat enjoyable was knowing that I could go school supply shopping. If you know me, you know that I have a pen addiction. This addiction is only fueled further by boredom, emotions and stress. Some people are emotional eaters; I am an emotional pen buyer. A bad day can be completely reversed when you purchase some good pens!

As you can imagine, my pen buying cravings are getting stronger. The problem... I have no reason to buy pens! It is horribly tempting every time I am in Wal-mart to swing through the back to school section. Of course if I even go down the aisle I will see some pens that I just cannot live without and have to buy them. It is like the story of "If You Give a Pig a Pancake".

Oh well! I guess I will just stick to watching Finding Nemo, so that the commericals influence all my other pen buying buddies! But, if you come across some pens that are great... let me know! :)

Am I crazy or just bored??

So, I swore up and down that I would never, ever, ever create a blog... but I guess boredom has gotten the best of me! Also, I read so many of my friends' blogs and love seeing what they are up to and figured you might like to see what is new with us!

We are 21 days away from moving into our new house and trust me... I cannot wait! I think the walls of this apartment must be painted with lead paint because we are all going crazy! Additionally, all my nesting instincts have taken control and I cannot stand the clutter of this place any longer. I find myself cleaning random things just to feel better!

Hollis is coming in just a month and a half! We are getting very excited! Allyn still does not really understand. She loves babies and I think she will be ok. The biggest thing is that she does not like to share. So, as long as Hollis does not come out wanting to wear her beloved crocs I think we will be fine!!

Well, I am not making any promises that I will keep this up because I can hardly remember to log onto facebook and get back to people! I guess we'll see!
