This is the Beginning of a 3 Day Week

Ah, yes. We are only working 3 days this week. The work week ends on Wednesday! I am so happy and not at all dreading going to work tomorrow. I can totally do this! 3 days? Piece-of-cake!

I feel rejuvenated and rested. This weekend has included an amazing potluck dinner with our Sunday school class, a sleep-in Saturday, lunch with a good friend, a pedicure, driving by our new house, a lazy night in with chinese takeout, church and a beautiful day at the LPGA Tour Championship with good friends. For dinner I made jambalaya and cornbread and the house is clean. HOORAY!

Oh.... I forgot. There is a sentence in the above paragraph that seems to inform you that Grant & I found a house that passed inspections and all systems are go.


I am not lying about this. We found a house.

WE FOUND A HOUSE. And we put an offer on it. AND IT WAS ACCEPTED!!! And we had inspections on the house. AND IT PASSED!!!! WITH FLYING COLORS!!!

Before I go any further I have to just take a minute to praise the Lord. We prayed and trusted and I wasn't always great at it but I absolutely love this house and am so thankful that He allowed us to find this house and allowed us to proceed with it. God is good and we are very thankful this Thanksgiving week!

So, aside from finishing my Christmas shopping, I have to pack now. And move. And buy a refrigerator. And buy a washer and dryer. And rip down some horrendous wallpaper. And repaint the master bedrom which doesn't match my bedding or color scheme. And also maybe decorate for Christmas if my husband will still let me? We aren't moving in for 3 weeks or so and there is alot that has to happen.

It is a one story home. Stone and brick outside with blue shutters. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with a study and a dining room. The yard is spacious yet manageable. It is in a quiet neighborhood with lots of trees. WE ARE THRILLED!

Love y'all. All of y'all. Go ahead and start dreading the stressed out posts I will be writing as the month of December approaches!

Goodnight Houston....and Goodnight Blogland!
