I have teased you with an announcement for months now. No. I don’t have an agent… yet. No. I’m not pregnant. ( Baby factory is CLOSED! )
So what has been going on in my family life that I’m so excited about? Well if you have hit the little “Like” button there in the side bar for my Facebook page, then you got the announcement yesterday. It won’t be such a surprise to you, but without any further ado.
*Ahem* I have an announcement!
Public: An Announcement?!
Me: Yes. An Announcement.
Public starts singing: Announcements. Announcements. Annnnouuunnncceeeements!
Me: ( Oh geez. Not this song. But has a ting of a smile as it reminds me of my Daddy. )
Public singing: What a horrible way to die. What a horrible way to die. What a horrible way to be talked to death. What a horrible way to die. Announcements. Announcements. ANNNNNOOOUUUNNNCCCEEEMEEENTS.
Yes. Yes. Yes. I get it. Here it is:
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!
All that stress you’ve heard I’m under, all the craziness that has been going on for the last three and a half weeks? Yup. That was the biggest cause. We were in escrow.
We were very lucky in everything that lead up to this. The stars aligned, the cosmos were in our favor, God was looking out for us, it was fate, whatever it is you believe in, it was on our side.
We have actually been renting the house since June last year, and the owner asked us if we were interested in purchasing it. HECK YAS we were! So we went into talks, and everything ironed out beautifully. The best part… WE DONT EVEN HAVE TO MOVE INTO OUR NEW HOME!
/skips and dances happily around the room!
So THAT folks is what my big news was.
There are things we want to do. We want to paint the trim, paint some things inside, replace some things outside to make it not look so “renter” anymore, but we are super excited. We are homeowners in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I will be.

And our elliptical arrives on Monday! SQUEE!!!! Happy MAY! )
