It's been a LOOONG time!

Well, it sure has been a little while. Ooops! There has been a lot going on since the middle of November though. One fabulous thing is that the week after Thanksgiving I moved into my parents house. Since then I (with some help) finished my house and it is now officially on the market!!!!!!! So I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that helped! And an especially HUGE thank you to my parents for allowing me to live with them and to my Grandparents for allowing Kade to continue to stay with them!! THANK YOU! WE LOVE YOU! When the weather is better we'll take you up on a helicopter ride so you can see what we're so excited about (as if you don't know already). ;) Anyway, here are some before and after pictures of our condo...

So that's how our condo's looking now. I'm hoping it'll sell faster than not. Anyway, now that I'm in my parents house I just have to go through the boxes that I brought over here a while ago and put them in storage. So as far as moving and storing and listing our house, it's all done and all we have to do now is wait....

Thanksgiving was pretty nice. We spent the holiday with Kade's family. It was nice to be together and just hang out. We took some family pictures. Here is one of Kade and me.

December was a pretty busy month with all the moving and Christmas and what not. We went to California to spend Christmas with my Mom. It was a nice Christmas! We visited with my step-dad's kids and grandkids and some friends. On the way home on the way home we had our very own adventure! :S The drive train in the jeep decided it didn't want to work anymore, so we pulled over to a gas station (thankfully we were near one) and had AAA come and tow us to my Aunt and Uncle's house in Mesquite. THANK YOU for letting us stay at your house! My dad and Ramona came to our rescue and drove to Mesquite. My dad removed the drive train with Kade and we drove home the next day. Quite the adventure!

Anyway, that's the quick catch up of our holidays. Sorry it's short, but I have limited use of Kade's laptop, and that's where all of our pictures are stored. We hope you all had a wonderful holiday full of fabulous family and friends! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Wahooo! An update!! :)

I know I see you almost everyday but I still enjoy reading your blog and looking at your pictures. I still haven't been to your condo since it's been done. The pictures look AWESOME! You did incredible. Seriously.

I'm glad you guys made it home alive this weekend. What a crazy adventure that was for the two of you. Uhg.

I'm just sad I wasn't able to catch up with you guys when you stopped by my parents. I found out you'd been here AFTER you left. I wanted to hear how your holiday was.

I guess you'll have to update me tomorrow at work! :)

Welcome back!!!

Love the before and after pictures! Isn't it ironic that we get our homes just the way we want them, and them sell them??!! Weird! It's so great that you can stay with your parents, they'd be great roommates! Glad you had a good christmas and especially that you got to see your hubby!

Your condo is looking great and we are cheering for a quick sale! We truly hope things go smoothly!
