Update on the house... our appraisal came back and we will move in with Instant equity which will be nice and the inspection went perfect. Now we just have to wait for it to close. Our loan office said 2 weeks which will put it at the end of July. I am starting to think about packing. I hate packing. Especially when I know we are just going 2 miles across town. Oh well... hopefully I can get rid of some of the junk we have been collecting through the years.
Sorry this picture is a little crazy looking, but it was the only one I could get with his tongue sticking out. :)
A picture of his beautiful eyes. I love this kid!!!!!

Right side of front room. My piano will go against the stairs. I am excited to get it back. There is a ton of space under the stairs. We decided it will be a great place for toys. The stove is gas!!! JT loves it already we might be in trouble The left side of front room where the couch and tv will go.
Pretty self explanatory. The pantry is my favorite though. I should have gotten a pic of it. It is HUGE!!!!!
Master bath. See the cute vanity area. I might actually use it.
JT and Trey playing in the laundry room. It will be nice to have more than a closet for laundry. "One day" I will get front loading. The other side of the master bath. It need a little work, but shouldn't be bad. Like another mirror. Not much.
Steep steep stairs.
1/2 bath upstairs in one of the bedrooms. It is just so cute. Everything about this house is cute. It really has some old charm. I can't wait. I don't think August 6th will come fast enough. Time to get packing. :)

My little guy is getting better and better at walking. It is so insane to me that I have a 1 year old and he is walking. He now has 7 teeth and pretty much thinks phones are awesome. He puts them up to his ear and talks. Also it is a good thing he is cute because he is on this screaming kick and if he wasn't cute who knows what would happen. hehehe

So back to the title of my blog. I am totally in love and Jon and I are finally doing something we have wanted to do in a long time. Buying a house. I found it online a few days ago. We weren't even thinking about doing this yet, but it is an offer you can't pass up. We went to look inside tonight thinking that it was built in 1930 and probably has a lot of work that is needed. Notice the yard is pretty much in shambles, but the outside is great other than a cracked window in front. We walked in and all of us were shocked. The whole entire house had been remodeled. It is so cute. I love the old charm with the new updates. Wrap-around porch...high ceilings... awesome trim and moldings...A/C (That is a huge positive for an older home) It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. (3 upstairs and master on main floor) and there is even a little rock basement that you access from outside for Jon's "man cave." It has a pretty good size yard for JT and it is just plain cute. So we are going to put an offer on it in the next few days and cross our fingers that everything will go well. We are ready for a place of our own and this house just feels right. :) So here is my new love. I will post an update as soon as I know anything. For now I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. We are heading up north for Stadium of Fire and to spend time with Jon's family. Have fun and stay safe :)

The other surprise... So those of you who know me real well, know that I "HATE" cooking. I really wished I liked to cook, but I don't. The past few days I have tried to psych myself up to do something. My parents have an apricot tree that is ready to pick so Megan and I got a couple of bags and climbed the ladders last night. (During Bachelorette commercials) :) Now I know you are all in shock. Believe me Jon was and me too a little bit. He said he never thought I would do this and he was just waiting to see if I really would. But here you go. You can all pick up your chins off the floor now. It is true. I actually got my dehydrator out. (Thanks Grandma) Here is a picture to prove that I did it. We can't wait to have dried apricots and a few bananas just to see how they turn out. Next on the agenda... apples, kiwis, watermelon, and I guess whatever else sounds good.
Not quite ready for the slide. LOL
Check out my "new" face. He makes this face all the time while sniffing his nose.
