So, the bank accepted our offer. I am still trying to get my mind around packing this house up and taking this show down to Santa Maria. I will miss the beach so much. But you know, I feel like it’s appropriate to mourn things as you’re letting them go, and half the time, I think that’s why I mourn them. I loved this house, but that doesn’t mean I have to be sad. I don’t have to be sad to prove that I loved this house. I want to really honor my true feelings as much as possible and not the feelings I think I should have. This house is a great fit for us, and I am looking forward to it. It was wonderful to live here. I think that being here during the first years of our marriage and bringing our first tiny baby home here, it was perfect. It was the perfect little house for our lives at the time and I will always love it. I am so excited to see what our lives will look like in this new house. Hopefully we will bring another tiny baby home to that house.
So, what a weekend! Ben’s grandparents were here for the weekend so we got a lot done. And a lot of laying around and sleeping in, too. God bless those wonderful people. Some close family friends were throwing a cute Alice in Wonderland birthday party and asked me to create a game that the birthday girl had requested: Pin the Smile on the Chesire Cat. I was more than happy to do it. It just required some craft paper, glue and scissors. I mounted it on posterboard. What do you think?
Then we decided at the last minute to throw together a garage sale. We only sold a little bit of this stuff and made $300! What?? Ya. It was a great way to spend a few hours on Saturday morning. And it was Ben’s first!
I set up a little Halloween front door! I can’t wait for the toddler Halloween party we have coming up!
Then we headed out to a beautiful wedding that afternoon. Our wonderful college friends Jesse and Meghan were getting married in Templeton. Scott told me like three times how beautiful I looked (score) so I made him take a few pictures with me.
We had such an amazing time. We hadn’t seen so many of those people for years and it was like no time had gone by at all. Except we all had kids to talk about this time! Wow, a month from now we are going to be so tired! I can’t wait to post “before” photos and get some paint up and some floors down. You guys excited? I am! You can see photos from our walk through here, and some Photoshop design mock ups here.Pin It
