A Little Bit of This..A Little Bit of That...

Whats up ladies? Another weekend has come and gone. Something that's NOT gone? The rain and clouds here in Nor Cal. I mean, c'mon Mother Nature, get with it. It's Spring and don't give me the "April Showers bring May flowers" crap either!

So far this morning has been a success - got myself a heeeer appointment with ma' gurl on May 11th. Just before Mexico. Nobody wants to see a rooty blonde, so I'm being very thoughtful with this one. With laundry all ready well underway, Im planning a trip up the hill to see my mamacita and to go tanning.

My weekend was pretty good - got in a run, looked at houses and might have even have THE house. We aren't totally getting our hopes up because it's so soon in our search for a house, and also there are a lot of things that need to happen before we can get it (such as the bank accepting our offer, inspections, the whole kit and caboodle). So this house is so cute tho ladies, I die! It's an older house on 1 acre (yes please!), wrap around deck, detached 2 car garage, 3 BR, 2 BA and has been freshly painted and re carpeted. There are DEFINITELY things Nick and I would need to re-do if we got the house. Things that need to happen ASAP - remodel the kitchen and open it up, put in new windows, and gut out and re-do a bathroom that's tile is bulging out (why? We don't know - hope it's nothing serious, but the inspector will tell us the 411). Anyways, the price is pretty perfect for us to be able to still have moolah to do our fixings and make it our own and be comfy in it for about 8-10 years. The 1 acre is usable and perfect to kick Troy (and all the other future chitlans) out the door so they can get some energy out. I'm also envisioning where I'd put my chickens (I go through a lot of eggs people, this would save us more money) and where I'd put my veggie garden....but again, not trying to get hopes up. Our realtor said this is the kind of house where you put in an offer, and then keep looking at other houses till you hear back from the bank. So we will do just that.

OOOOOOO buying a house is so much fun/stressful all in one! Hope it works out for the best!

And I don't know if you're serious about the chickens but I have a friend that has them and LOVES them!

I love houses on acreage with a cute little wrap around porch. We live on 2 acres and I like my house but we NEED something different for our fam. Our living room is the boys play room. There are toys all around my house and I HATE IT!

Mexico is coming soon! I better be seeing lots of bikini pics since you are working out so hard!!
