Getting moved in...

Well the closing and the move were successful, we are now officially homeowners! It's such a great feeling to be settled again. I love coming home to something that is all mine.

Most of the house is still in boxes but I'm really looking forward to getting our office set up so I can start working again. I had plans to really focus on my business during this time off and instead I have been very sidetracked with other things, like house hunting! Now that I have the house thing out of the way I hope that I can really focus on my business full time. Mike and I had plans to do some traveling and unfortunately we haven't done that either but we are going to try and plan some trips over the next few months.

All of my plans for this year really got messed up after I was laid off. It's really made things confusing and difficult, especially with the wedding planning, but hopefully now that we are settled into our new house we can get back on track.

I promise to post pics of the new house soon, once the boxes are all put away!

I know it's been a very long time since I've posted anything here. I'm sorry. I am keeping a much more regular blogging schedule over at The Design Boards. I'm finding it hard to maintain two blogs right now, life has been kind of hectic these past few weeks.

We have been house hunting like crazy, we finally found out after two weeks of negotiations that we got a house! We are really excited but also trying not to get too worked up since we have been burned on so many other properties since we started our search. If all goes well today at the inspection, we will close next Wednesday. The house is really cute but completely dated. One of the bathrooms has a blue toilet in it but it's only had one owner and they took really good care of it so we're excited to get in there and put our own touches on it. I will post photos of the house soon.

I have been all over the place with my business, it's hard to focus on that when there are so many other things to worry about too. I am most likely going to have go back to work, I've been looking for jobs but the job market in Tampa isn't great right now. Mike and I are also trying to plan one more trip before we get back into regular life again. I hope that when things settle down I will be able to maintain a regular posting schedule here.
