1 day left!!

I am so excited!!! We move in on Wednesday! That is 1 day and 4 hours from now. Can you beleive it? We are going to be HOMEOWNERS!! That is just crazy. My arms are already super sore, and all we have loaded into the horse trailer (after shoveling POOP out of it, thanks Dad!), is a couch and our tv cabinet. These are the biggest things we have, but my arms are sore!! After I type this we are going to load some more boxes in there. Booo. I want to be UNpacking!! Our plan at first was to paint before moving in, but we don't want to rush it... we want to do it once, and do it right. It's easy enough to move furniture into the center of the room and paint. We just wont hang any artwork quite yet. Here is a little teaser of what is to come:


P.S. I changed my comment moderation because of some anonymous commenter who decided to try and ruin my happy news. You know who you are. Anyway, your comments won't show up until I approve them now.

Wish us luck!!

P.P.S. Since we moved into the basement of this house, wooden caps have been put on the stairs, which make them stick out 2 inches longer. Because of this, we can not fit our boxspring back up the stairs!! So it is stuck here forever:( Anyone have a spare??? Actually I think I'll be able to scrounge up a mismatched boxspring at the Brick or something for cheap. I hope this is our one thing that goes wrong. But I doubt that.

A day at the (dog) park

Hi guys! Miss me?
Travis and I get asked a lot how life in Calgary is. The answer? Great. We really like it here. We are so so excited to finally move into our own house, after a year and a half of marriage, and a year and a half wasting our money paying other people's mortgages. We both hate the feeling of that money just disappearing at the end of the month. We are excited to start paying into something that will appreciate in value, and be ours. 18 more days!! (and 2 hours, 55 minutes, 08 seconds) but who's counting?? I'm excited to make a house into our home. And we are so grateful for friends and family who are so encouraging and helpful.
As I was saying... Calgary is a great place. We love the friends we have been making here, and moving will also help keep those friendships in place, as they live on that side of town, too. We love the off-leash parks, and shopping (although our tight budget won't allow for much of that) and that its still close to my family. Please pray for us as we take on these changes and big life steps.
