I'm so excited.
And, it's been an absolutely crazy week.
Our house has been on the market for 6 days now and we've had 2-3 showings almost every day. Since Jesse and I both work from home (and Ava 'toddles' at home), we all have to pack up and get out of the house...sometimes for 4-6 hour stretches. There are worse things to have to deal with in this life, but omg did I walk around Target for a really long time today.
We can only go to the park so much when it's 95 degrees outside.
Ava and I are a very pale duo.
So, yeah, lots of driving around, lots of store-perusing, lots of walks, we went to a used book store and got Ava some books. We also went downtown yesterday and met my mom for a belated birthday lunch (my 33rd bday was on Monday).
I love this picture of Ava, just eating her Cheerios and watching us talk, enjoying the breeze in her hairs.
And Jesse and I were even able to get a little adult time on my birthday, so yay!!!
It's way too hot to be in the bathroom with a round brush and blowdryer, and I feel like most days I look as if I've been dipped in a deep fryer,
so let this picture live on in eternity.
But, anyway, the house hasn't sold yet.
I could write a million more things after that sentence, in a million different directions, but I've deleted every attempt at doing so.
Let's just see how it pans out, and then we'll talk.
Fingers crossed that by the time I write my next post I will have a juicier scoop for you.
It looks as though we will close on our new fixer upper sometime late next week, so I'm hoping to have some 'before' pictures of the new house for you guys soon. I'm so excited to close and get in there. I don't think we'll be doing any major renovations yet until our current house sells, but I still might get in there and do some painting and planning...you know.
I mean, I have a baby, and that makes absolutely zero logistical sense, especially since we'll still be living in our current home until it sells, but in my mind's eye, I'm all up in that new home, staying up all night, going crazy with a paintbrush.
I'll keep you guys posted.
