Life Update

Hi All!

If you follow me on Instagram and here on my blog you might have been wondering where the heck I've been the past few months. My posts have been pretty sporadic & I'm sorry for that BUT something very exciting has been in the works!...

Kyle & I bought a house!
We've been busy packing up everything in our condo from the past 3 years! (I can't believe its been 3 years living there)
We just closed on it this morning and we couldn't be more excited about this new chapter in our life. I never thought at 23 I'd be purchasing a home, I feel so incredibly lucky and thankful. As you're reading this we're probably packing up our moving truck & heading to the new house! 

This whole thing came so unexpectedly- My mom and I were actually getting our nails done one Saturday in April and we were chatting and she asked if I had seen a home that was listed in our area (she had seen pictures on facebook), I told her I had seen it and loved it and she asked me why I wasn't buying it. Next thing you know we were leaving our nail appointment and going to look at the house! We wrote an offer an hour later and it was accepted that night. Mind you Kyle & I hadn't met with a lender yet, which is something you should definitely do prior to looking at homes, so our offer was contingent on financing which thank goodness all worked out. I also should mention that Kyle is a realtor so that's probably why this all worked out so well! I'm not sure I'd be very helpful with tips on buying a home as it was such a whirlwind buying this one! 

I'm so excited to share this new journey of home ownership with you all! I'm sure there will be many home posts to come. I already have so many plans! 

Special shoutout to our family for all of their love & help through all of this!

Warm Weather Pieces

Thursday Thoughts

Things I did this week //

* Jury Duty- Fun right!? I had to sit in a room for 8 hours!! And there were no windows- and of course, there were the criminals that they were selecting the Juries for- yikes!. Luckily I didn't get chosen to be on any of the Juries. It was Criminal Court and the cases were not pleasant, to say the least!

* Guess what my student brought to school in his backpack??? Any guesses? What would a 6-year-old boy pack for school? Toys? Candy? An iPod? Nope! BABY BUNNIES. I kid you not he packed 3 baby bunnies he found in his yard in the front pocket of his backpack. I can't make this stuff up people! Welcome to First Grade. Could you imagine being the parent who gets the call asking them to please come pick up the bunnies their child brought to school!? These kids always keep me laughing!

* Enjoyed the beautiful weather here in Vermont! It feels like we completely skipped Spring and headed straight into Summer! Definitely not complaining- it was 80 degrees a few days! I've been enjoying nightly walks which is one of my favorite things to do in nicer weather. 

Things I'm doing this weekend //

* Manicure! Which I desperately need. Last time I got my nails done I didn't get them cut down and now I feel like I can't do anything since they're so long! I love the way long nails look but I can't seem to function with them. 

* It's going to be rainy so I'm definitely going to take the opportunity to relax! With the end of the school year coming I feel like everything has been going 900 mph. Too fast! I need some R&R.

* Celebrating Mother's Day! I picked up a few sweet items I know my Mom will love! Which I can't tell you because she reads all of my blog posts- and corrects all of my mistakes! HA! Love you, Mom!

What are your weekend plans!?
