This title has a double meaning. First, we are home from our vacation to Costa Rica! We had a great time but are so happy to be home. Back in our bed, eating our food, and out of the extreme heat! We feel so thankful that we got to go on this trip. We had some great quality family time and didn't have any problems while we were gone. No one got hurt or sick and our flights were so easy. The boys did great on the plane rides and had so much fun swimming in the pool, playing in the sand and playing in the waves. They are such great travelers which makes these trips so much better! I will be posting pictures from the trip soon...as soon as I can unpack 5 suitcases full of stuff and dig my way out of the laundry. haha
The second meaning of this post is we will be closing on our new house a week from today! Wahoo! If you remember, in early February we made an offer on a house in Prosper. We weren't happy with the seller's attitude or response to our offer so we moved on. Only to look at about 20 more houses and nothing compared to this house! This house went off the market and then came back on a few days later. We took this as a sign and decide to go back and make another offer. We finally came to an agreement with the seller and are moving forward! We have set the closing date soon so that we can have 2 full weeks to get the house ready before we move in. And by ready, I mean new paint, new carpet, new light fixtures, new locks on the doors, an exterminator to come out, a serious cleaning since the house has been vacant since August...the list goes on. We luckily have an awesome contractor that our realtor recommended that will do most of this for us at a very reasonable price. We have to be out of our house March 28 so we will use most of this time to get the house ready to move in. We are thrilled beyond words that this is working out. We have loved this house from the very beginning and will make leaving our current house much easier.
