HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

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.

 

( PS: I have also decided I am going to follow in the footsteps of a fellow blogger who is dedicating herself to 1 mile a day ( See post here entitled May Mile a Day Challenge. ). You can follow my progress on either Twitter or on my Facebook page. Both of which you can follow by clicking the links in the sidebar of this page. OHH OHHH OHHH! And our elliptical arrives on Monday! SQUEE!!!! Happy MAY! )

    • Thank you so much! I’ve been wanting an elliptical for a long time, and it comes at just the perfect time for our little challenge ( ok not so little.).

      Thank you for visiting and following my blog! Yours is very inspirational, and I’m thrilled you think mine worthy to follow also.

  1. YAY!!! Congrats!! We just bought one as well. Isn’t is such an amazing feeling!! Do you have your new house pinterest board yet? Have you been on Houzz.com? (Can you tell I am slightly obsessed?) YAY!!!!

    • DOH! I guess it didn’t show. I’ll fix it and you’ll be able to see.

      I do have a House board on my Pinterest. I haven’t been to the other site you mentioned. I’ll have to take a lookie. Since we are so close to the beach I told the husband unit that I want it to be our beach house. He says well its long and thin so nautical boat house… Meh.. guess there is some decisions that still have to be made. lol

    • Picture added to post. I thought I had it already in there. Apparently it decided not to.

      And MAJOR congrats on your new home!!! So much to do, just remember, we have lots if time to do it!

      • The weather here as been down right summery ( hit 97 here on Wends… but now the fog is rolling in because the valley is getting hot. Gotta love California Coast. ) so we have been spending a lot of time on the porch!

  2. Wow, that is so wonderful, Kim! No hassle of moving into another house is a beautiful thing. I’m so glad it all worked out for you and your family 🙂

      • Yeah, guess that’s strange to undergo a transition like that, without there being an actual transition as in having to rent a U-haul and stuff like that;)

So whatcha thinking?
