God is gooooood

It's only the 16th of January and God has already done so much in the new year. We are in the process of finalizing the paper work on our first home, which literally blows my mind. Our offer was accepted, inspection is done, and now we just have to have the sellers accept the amendments from the inspection.

We fell in love with this home from the moment we walked in. It was a little more than we wanted to spend, but after much prayer God opened some BIG doors to make it happen. Thru God's grace and some family member's blessings we are able to put down 20% and have cash to cover closing costs, inspection fees, appraisal fees, and get a few things we need (fridge, washer/dryer, additional couch, etc.). I have truly been blown away by our friends and family being so willing to help by offering furniture, advice, prayers, etc. Thank you, you know who you are :)

We are set to close on Feb. 2nd and I cannot wait to move in and start this new adventure...

And I guess reading those design blogs all these years is going to pay off. Thankfully I come from a long-line of crafty, DIY ladies so vamping up this home with be a piece of gluten-free cake.

New Year, New Adventures

Happy New Year!

Matt and I rang in the new year watching Friends episodes and going to bed promptly after a midnight kiss :)

2011 was amazing...
-We celebrated 2 years of marriage
-I graduated a BSN program (in 15 months)
-I passed the NCLEX
-I started my job in SICU
-Our pup turned 2

And we are confident 2012 will be equally as amazing. Here's what we have on our hearts for this next year...

-Matt starting a graduate program for his Master's in Education at Our Lady of the Lake University
-Moving into our first house (we have been financially pre-approved and our realtor is in the works of finding a casa perfect for us).
-Matt turning the big 3-0
-Matt's truck being paid off...Holla!

God is good and we know 2012 will be full of blessings!
