What a pain in the A** ! I pretty much was throwing things in boxes as we went along. I took some car loads, while Alex and his Dad moved the big stuff. We got up at 8am and didn't stop until midnight. We went to take a shower and realized we didn't have a curtain liner, so off to Wal-Mart I went at 1230. Of course I picked up all kinds of other things I stumbled upon for the house. So at 2am here we are taking showers in the new about exhausted! I was happy when moving was over... and that's an understatement!

I was so caught up in moving that I forgot to take photos, so I snapped a few on my phone when I realized I didn't have any pictures.

This fell out of the washer when it was being unloaded and nobody can find where it goes! I've done tons of laundry and it hasn't flooded the place yet, so I guess it will stay out until we figure out where it goes. 

Cali is adjusting well to her new kitty lair :) 
Her favorite blanket, the pillow she likes to sleep under, lair inside a closet and her kitty bed. 
Yeah, she's spoiled by her momma <3 


We finally went to closing on April 30th. Our appointment was at 2:00 and we got started around 2:20. 

The closing table where we sign our life away! 

At least we had a somewhat nice view of the outdoors

It was pretty simple and painless. It was our first closing ever, so we didn't really know what to expect. We read a bunch of stuff, signed a bunch of papers and around 3:45 we were done. The lawyer said "ok guys that's it you just bought a house." We both sat there like uh that's it, we're done, we are homeowners?! She said we looked confused and sad, but I think we were still in shock that we actually just purchased a house. 

When she asked if we got our keys already, I said "wait, what... you don't have our keys?!?!?!" She said our PM Blake would have them. After a call to Blake he said he left them in the office with the SR. Of course we left right from closing and had to come straight to the house and check things out! The SR had the doors unlocked for us already, keys inside and a nice housewarming gift basket. It was pretty surreal, but exciting to say the least!
