So, given how much I blogged and blogged last year, you would think I would have blogged about this momentous occasion by now, but no…instead I daydream about sitting in some bar furniture in Cabo San Lucas with my husband next to me and a margarita in my hand.
Instead, I have had more boxes than I can imagine in my hands and the only furniture I have sat on has been my own. I want a vacation. Not getting one anytime soon though because we BOUGHT A HOUSE.
And you know what guys? There is NO RETURN POLICY. All sales final.
OHMYGOSHWHATAREWEGOINGTODO?! And the answer is nothing. And I hope this feeling passes like soon, because I hate to be awake at night second guessing our decision to become homeowners.
I had this CRAZY idea that once we moved in, I’d start removing popcorn ceilings, painting walls, replacing floors and that I’d have my perfect home by Christmas.
I am obviously crazy. But this isn’t news, is it?
So for now, I am updating all of you lovely people that yes, we bought a home. No, I haven’t done anything fabulous to it. In fact, we have so many big ass boxes from our washer, dryer and fridge in the garage that we can’t park in it. I also have like 3 boxes that need to be unpacked in the living room that I ignore while munching on 100 calorie packs and watching my TV shows.
Clearly I have priorities.
But, I do have something great for you. Yes, you. In honor of my big purchase, I want to share with you all a lovely $45 gift certificate to CSN Stores. How can it be yours? It’s simple!
