A while back my brother mentioned that I hadn't blogged in quite a while... I didn't even realize till just now it had been since OCTOBER! Seesh... it's overused, but where does the time go?
Oh that's right, I have a 6 month old, and a new house.
You heard that right my bloggy friends, not only did we just have a baby, we decided that buying our first home was a good idea as well! In all honesty, we would have liked to have purchased our house before Brenden was born, but it just wasn't in the cards, we are so thankful that we waited, as the house we did purchase is just perfect for us and our family!
Of course me being the super awesome person (blogger) that I am, I do not have a single picture of my house. (fail!) What is nice is that it's located only 12 minutes from my old apartment - which made moving SO easy.
We moved St. Patrick's Day weekend, and we are still trying to unpack and get settled.
We've found that everything is twice as difficult with a baby. It seems as though once you get into a good groove the baby knows it. I swear, he's out to get us!
Ben and I couldn't be more happier with our house, we are closer to my work, closer to daycare, closer to my friends. It's a win/win for everyone! We've been told that we live in a really nice neighborhood, which after walking around, I would tend to agree! And we've seen many little ones around.
The space! I love how much space we have! Although in a few years I am sure I will be complaining that it's not enough. But we went from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom oversized ranch. It has a beautiful deck off the back of the house, overlooking the river, we have a neat little fire pit and what I envision will be a great evening hang out spot (fire pit with some Adirondack chairs) down by the river.
It's a house that needs a little work, but it's work that we can do while we live there, which is what we wanted.
Hopefully once we get a little bit more settled we'll be able to have some sort of open house where our friends can come and see our new place.
