You know what that is? What that shiny thing in the picture is? Of course you do. It’s the key to our NEW HOUSE! We bought a house. I still can’t really believe it. I haven’t even started packing the apartment up, sure we’re moving in three weeks, but it hasn’t sunk in. Prince Charming and I are homeowners. Together.

We’ve got the plumber, bathroom guy, foundation guy, electrician, and tub refinisher all set to go. We just need to finalize the floor and window people. I think that’s it. Whew.

My dad and step-mom are coming up this weekend, mostly for the UCLA vs. Stanford game, but also to help us go on our first Home Depot run. Sunday will be a full day of gardening, painting and whatever else needs to be done. Removing trees? And removing a cabinet in the kitchen. My aunt has also volunteered her services for kicking off the three weeks of work before we move in, and anyone else who is available Sunday is more than welcome to join in on the festivities!
