Blogging Resurrection – We Bought A House

Happy Friday! Man, am I happy to say that.

If you read the blog regularly you know I have been MIA for the past two months. I hope you will accept this recap as my sincere apology for temporarily abandoning F&F. 

I do have some exciting news though, we finally closed on our house! And we are all moved in. After planning on closing in October, it has been a heck of a ride. 

We actually closed in December about 2 weeks before Christmas, so you can imagine the craziness that ensued. 

After signing the papers we picked up the B dog and headed over to the house for a small celebration. 

 
  

Early the next week we got everything moved in and began the unpacking.  

I have to say the kitchen is really the only place that isn’t still in limbo. We have a lot of projects in mind already, and we are super excited to begin this exciting and slightly overwhelming adventure!  

 

Some other things that happened over the holiday season… 

Kris’ work threw an awesome Christmas party
  

(I got my dress from LuLu’s. It was a little tighter than I expected but it was definitely a good purchase. It will be worn again!)

We celebrated Christmas in Pittsburgh
  
My mom, sister, and I made more Christmas cookies than one family should ever consume
  

And we rang in the New Year with wine, cheese, and a 2,000 piece puzzle… And I totally fell asleep on the couch long before midnight. 
  
…everyone was thrilled.

That about sums up the highlight reel. This weekend my family is coming in to celebrate my sister’s birthday. 

I hope you have a great weekend! 

What’s on your weekend agenda? 

Are you currently working on any house projects?
