It's done!

I know it has been a little while and I totally got off of my usual Monday updates. I wanted to share a couple of pictures of what has been happening with the house. It is DONE and our settlement will be on Monday! I thought I would do one final update before we are in there for real.

We had our pre-flooring walk-thru a couple of weeks ago. At that point everything was pretty much done except for the floors/carpets. I took a couple of pictures of some things in the inside.

Here is a picture of the kitchen.

The chandelier in the entry way/foyer.

And the matching light in the dining room.

The staircase in the foyer.

And we have grass just starting to bud!!!

And one last picture of the whole house.

We are pretty excited. I was able to meet with an interior designer to help decide color choices for the house. She was wonderful and really gave me some great ideas. We think the colors we chose are going to look great. Now we have exactly 2 weeks from today to get this house packed up and ready to move!

Wish us luck!

I've been sleeping.

Literally! I was thinking a lot of people might wonder where I have been but then I remembered the only people who really read this are family and message board friends who already know my news. I have been sleeping the last month away because I found out that I am pregnant!! Yes!! Can you believe it?? Exciting times, huh? Yes, sure. I have to say I really, really dislike this beginning part of being pregnant....I am not a good pregnant person. Of course I love the after part with the little, sweet baby and all of that but I just feel sooooo lousy. I know I have to be thankful for this wonderful gift I have been given and just go with it. I am trying, I really am.

Anyway, my life has been a little hectic needless to say. We are doing a lot of last minute things to get ready to move in a little over a month. Things are great with the new house. It is looking fantastic and we are so excited. I hope to do an update sometime this week. Lily continues to go to school two days a week and she is really enjoying it. With all of the craziness in the news we have not had much progress with the selling of our house. We had a few Open Houses and will have another this weekend. We are just doing what we can and praying that we sell it soon. I was gearing up for the Philadelphia Race for Hope on November 2nd. I was training and running so well...then one day I was really, really tired and then I found out why I was having such a hard time running!! I will still be doing the race although this year I think I will opt for walking - I am hoping I am even able to do that!!

So that is a little update about where I have been. I am hoping to get back to posting a little more often but I know it will be few and far between with the move coming up. I certainly will have A LOT to blog about in the spring.....hopefully if I can find some time!!
