Dashing Boy and I bought a house.

We looked all over, and found something that we're happy about.

The previous owners are a nice little family. And my mom says the house has a nice feeling to it. They are so nice that they have even offered to leave the dining room table, a lawnmower and a workbench because they don't need them anymore.

I'm excited to make a garden and grow my own salad.

I'm also excited to see Dashing Boy mow the lawn :).

So this week I'm packing boxes. We move in less than two weeks.

Dashing Boy is very busy with work right now so I've taken on the packing duties. But really, I'm completely procrastinating. It's overwhelming packing a house. Where do you begin? And so I pack two boxes and then I work on my quilt for an hour, and then I pack a little more.

So far I've packed seven boxes.

So onto a new place to live in a new area with new people. I'm a little nervous.

And just so grateful that I have Dashing Boy with me wherever we go. With him, it will be home.

Which is right where I want to be.

Congrats. Moving and packing is a job and a half. Don't get distracted! Nothing is worse then having the moving party show up and you have them start wrapping your dishes.

I'm so excited for you!

That is wonderful. Having your own house is a lot of work, but it's so fun at the same time! Where are you moving to? Will you still be in the stake? I never see you at church anymore becuase of the schedule change. Let me know if you need help moving. I'm stoked for you!!

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you! It's so much easier to move and set up house before babies come! Can't wait to see it! We really need to get together soon- it's been way too long!
