Just a quick post to let y’all know that…IT’S OURS!!! Markley is on his way to get the keys now and start moving the boxes. Everything else from the apartment and the storage unit will move tomorrow with the help of a U-Haul and B&B Movers. Yea! More pics Sunday, I promise!

Also, Markley has a phone interview Tuesday for a position here in San Antonio, so please pray for him.

No New Purchases...well....

Markley had to work this last weekend, so we didn't buy anything. haha! But I did do some window shopping for the new house. I'm started with some shopping for my craft room. It will be (in Stampin' Up! colors) real red, tempting turquoise, regal rose, and Bermuda bay.

First up is new curtains, and yes, these are shower curtains (very cute and very affordable). And they are the perfect colors. The first one is white with colored tabs and I'm thinking it's the winner.

Next up is pillows and storage bins. I don't have a sofa or any chairs, but I do like and want these pillows. My purchase was five of these storage bins. I'm thinking they will be perfect on a leaning bookcase shelf in white from Crate & Barrel (seen here).

And finally, stuff for the den. My colors (Stampin' Up! again) are Pacific point, wild wasabi, Sahara sand, and baja breeze. I know the colors are very beachy, but there will be no sea shells and no light houses. Just color influences.

So, tell me everyone, what do you think so far!!

By the way, the house inspection went well and the appraisal has been ordered. We are set to close 08/28/09!!

Guess What We Did?

Markley and I really need to quit hanging our together! The last time we were together, we bought him a Chrysler Sebring convertible. This last weekend when he flew down to San Antonio, we put a contract on this:
Can you believe it?? It two-story, and it has four bedrooms, two and a half baths, two living & two dining rooms. It was priced wonderfully low ($68 a square foot). It was the second house we looked at and it just felt like home. Especially to Markley.
I'm really scared as to what we might buy the next time I see him!

The Big Move

So, like I've been missing for three weeks...and here's why:

We finally sold the house in Canyon. YEA! I flew back home (all the new phrases you have to learn) and helped Markley finish packing. We rented a 26' U-Haul truck of all of our stuff. It wouldn't even fit in the driveway! We didn't fill it up, but it was nice to have all the room. We left Canyon on Saturday morning after one last garage sale romp with my sister Carla (what fun!) and were on our way back to San Antonio. You know, driving one of those isn't easy...especially when you never have, when it doesn't have cruise control, and when you have a cat that just will not let the medication work!

We got home (San Antonio) early enough to start putting some things in storage, just enough to realize that we couldn't do it ourselves. So, early Sunday morning we hired B&B Movers, who were WONDERFUL to help with the big stuff. They also helped get the furniture that came to my apartment up the stairs.

This is what my apartment looked like before and after the move:

The bad part is that Markley had to fly back to Canyon before we could get all the boxes arranged/unpacked at the apartment. The good part is that I am no longer sleeping on the Aztek's air mattress, but on my select comfort mattress on my real bed! And Angel is with me. She is adjusting well, but she does want to go outside and we have decided that since we are still in an apartment, that's it just not a good idea. I do love having her to come home to everyday. Now, I'm not talking to myself!
