If you're a loyal reader, there are just some things you need to know. So grab a pen and paper and get ready to take notes. These things are not to be forgotten.
1. I've officially booked 4 plane tickets to NYC May 28-31! It's a girl's weekend trip with me, my mom, Brenda (the MIL) and Skye (the SIL) and we're all very excited to go. After what seemed like forever of hanging on the edge of making solid plans, we're finally booked and I'm now working on a hotel. That's 95% secure as well so things are moving right along.
I've never been to the city in warm weather so I'm really looking forward to walking the streets without being weighed down by a big winter coat, hat, gloves, and scarf. It always makes popping in and out of stores a big pain, too. Outside you're freezing, you go inside and you're sweating. But you're not inside long enough to justify taking off the outside gear so you suffer.
I hope to see new things on this trip. I'm looking forward to traveling with my mom and getting her back to the city that she loves as much as her daughter does. She, however, hasn't been back since 1999, and I've at least been back once since then. I think she'll find it even better now.
2. We've re-listed our house and had an open house this past Sunday. ONE COUPLE came - but that is one couple more than has ever attended an open house at our home before so I was happy! They said the house was gorgeous, but I have no clue whether or not they are active house hunters or not.
I'm pretty much at the peak of my frustration with the speed at which our house selling is moving. I know I can't do much about it, but making it worse is that my dream house was reduced $90,000 last week. It's now affordable! Before it was WAY out of our range. Now it's at the top, but in my opinion, totally worth it for my dream.
I'm worried it'll get snatched up before we can take a stab at an offer on it, but what can you do? I know if it's meant to be it'll be, but that's so hard to accept when you dream!
Here's our new listing.
3. I turn 32 on Tuesday. Oh. How horrible. I was OK with 31, but 32 is like I'm REALLY in my 30s. To ease the pain, my Sethie got me 2 cute pairs of shoes and pre-ordered an iPad which will come in late April, early May :)
4. I'M GOING TO SEE THE SWELL SEASON AGAIN! VERY excited! Finally, no traveling to see them. We're going to go to the NC Art Museum (where our wedding reception was held) to hear them play at the outdoor amphitheater. SO FUN!
Those are the most important things I had to share today. Hope you've taken detailed notes as there will be a quiz later.
