A Sneak Peek into our future home :)

The weekend came and went, but today I want to chat about what is currently taking up all my time and energy. Our future house!

I just HAVE to tell you how excited I finally am. If you are new round' here, Matthew and I are in the process of building a town home in the city. I'm just now getting excited because I get mega stressed with big changes. I'm so critical and put a ton of pressure on myself to do everything right. Then I criticize myself for being so critical. have I confused you already?

Well settling into married life and the preparing for our first home has been no different. I don't know why, but stress is just one of my biggest faults. I wish I could control it, but unfortunately I can not. I can only learn how to drink heavily better manage it, which I think I have accomplished somewhat in the past couple of months.

I have been hiding all this crazy talk above from everyone but Matthew. I mean, I can't vent about wedding stress for seven months straight, then immediately go into house stress!! I think my friends, blog and IRL, would disown me. Shoot I would disown me. Matthew told me to take a chill pill and enjoy the ride, and I'm have started to do just that.This requires telling my worrywart brain to turn OFF. 

So off with my head! and onto drooling over my favorite window:


(We just got sheet rock, which makes your house look 3 x bigger inside)
And our imaginary white kitchen:

I'm just so in love! Our bank accounts will be empty but we'll have our first home! Just remember husband, happy wife=happy life!

Technically, it won't be our house until August 31, our estimated closing date. Until then, I am still claiming property virgin! This Saturday we will FINALLY get to make our selections, and I'm freaking so excited!! We literally have 100 more decisions to make, and I can't wait!

I apologize in advance if my blog starts to look like a Home Depot ad. Who knew home depot could be so much fun??? Don't worry - I still love nail polish the most.

Love ya'll,

This is very exciting! You are lucky to live in a place where buying a new home can be so simple - we have been in the process of trying to buy since early March and STILL waiting on our home :(
