Random Friday

     Our biggest news to share is that we are under contract for a house as of today! Yay! We will hopefully close on the house pending inspections and appraisals either at the end of the April or early May. We are really excited about buying our first home! And finally getting into a place after staying in a hotel for so long. Here are some other things going on in our lives.

1. Dream home. Tim and I are really happy because the home we are hoping to buy is in really good shape despite being an older house. We're actually looking forward to doing some renovation projects around the house and making it ours. Because we have been having so much fun imagining what we'd like to do in the house, we've been watching a lot of HGTV for some ideas. I love watching them remodel houses and decorate. My favorite show is Design Brothers, where twin brothers, a realtor and a carpenter/decorator, help people find fixer-upper houses and then remodel them into something really special and awesome. 

 2. Young House Love. I have become almost obsessive thinking about some of the things that we can do in the house. Another source for home renovating and decorating ideas that I am in love with is the blog Young House Love. It is written by a young married couple who do a lot of renovating in their older home. They have a lot of great ideas and step-by-step tutorials for updating various parts of the home. We're really interested in their instructions for updating and painting their kitchen cabinets. 

3. Our parenting style. Hahaha! I found this on Pinterest and thought it was so funny. And I'm fairly certain that my parents would agree. Additionally, all our progress as parents has been completely ruined by living in a hotel. Owen will rarely go to bed now without being rocked to sleep. Being in the same room as him at night sucks. He has been sleeping in his own bedroom since he was about three months old, so this is a big step back for us. He was falling asleep by himself and sleeping through the night like a champ before moving to Kentucky. We can't wait to get into a house!

     Other than that, not much is going on. Living in a hotel, doing our laundry at a laundromat, and eating out way too much. Owen's first birthday is Sunday so we're hoping to plan a fun day at a nearby park and eating out (of course). If Owen's lucky, we might get a small cake from the grocery store and let him go to town.
