I felt like I spent all weekend in my car!! But I got a lot done and saw some good friends, so it was worth it! :)

Saturday, I woke the girls up to give them their Valentine's presents. I got some cute red purses at the Target Dollar Spot (love that!) and filled them with goodies: Valentine shirt, Kelly dolls, books, little stuffed horse with a heart on the rump, and a couple of other little trinkets - and only one piece of candy, a heart lollipop! They loved them and I wanted to be sure and spend a little time with them since they would be with Bridget most of the weekend.

After my al-anon meeting, I met Traci to look at a couple of houses. I was so disappointed in the one I was really excited about. You just can't tell by the pictures online. So we talked and Traci convinced me that the right one would come along and to be patient (not my strong suit). We had a nice talk over coffee at Starbucks and I am so glad I chose her and Brad to help me with this journey. It's scary and I need someone I can trust. :)

So then I was off to see M&K and the triplets again - because who can get enough of cute babies??? They fed me lots of yummy food and I had a great visit! It was musical babies most of the afternoon - holding, playing, feeding, sleeping. I loved every minute of it!

I also drove .5 miles away to see the other house I was excited about - the one not listed yet.
Let me just say this...I suck at keeping a poker face! I LOVED this house!!! As I drove up, I thougt about the cute curb appeal. Then when I walked up to the house and walked in - I just knew it was the right one. I immediately could see the girls and I living there. The backyard is too die for - absolutely perfect for us. And the houses back up to a semi-private park with walking cool! So now we start the process and hope it all works as it should ~ I would love some prayers, good thoughts, positive vibes, whatever you got!

I ended the day the same way it bed with my beautiful girls and telling them how much I love them.


  1. So the house is "for sale by owner" since it is not listed yet? That is awesome cause now you wont have to pay for relator fees and the transaction will be a little more personal. This is how we bought our house and it was so smooth and easy!! Keep us posted!

  2. I'm so glad you found a house you love! I'll send lots of positive house buying vibes your way!

  3. I am so excited for you, I can't wait to hear fantastic news very soon :)
