It's all coming together!

 After taking a 2 and a half week trip to NY while waiting to close on our new house, Jack and I are back in Indiana, and we close TOMORROW!  I can't believe it's finally here.  The past month has gone by verry slow, but we are ready to wake up tomorrow, sign a million and a half papers, and unpack a thousand and a half boxes of stuff!  Who's coming to help??

Jack and I drove straight through yesterday with our 2 dogs, Sammy and Merlin.  It's about 9 hours straight, but with our lunch, gas, and potty break stops, it took us about 10.5 hours.  But we did get and hour back since we are in the central time zone here!  The weather was just awful and I wasn't sure if I really would make it.  Usually when we drive home as a family, Bobby drives the whole way.  So me having to drive the whole way was not fun.  Jack offered but since it was raining, I said I'd handle it all.  The rain was bad.  It poured most of the way and most of the highway was under construction.  Leaving two little lanes with no shoulders.  That makes passing trucks dangerously scary.  I just closed my eyes and hoped for the best...

When we got home, Jack and I got the best surprises!  Daddy had gotten Jack a froggie pillow pet!  Jack loves stuffies and always hugs and snuggles them.  He loves it!  And I got...

Oh baby!  I can't wait to use her!  Isn't she gorgeous???  I love the copper color!  She will look so pretty in my new kitchen!  What should I make with her first??

Jack and I are off today to buy baby gates for the stairs.  Jack loves stairs.  Not good...  So hopefully we find some gates that keep him off of them!

I'm glad to see a post from you! I was wondering how things were going and when you guys were closing on the house. I also have to say, I am so, so, SO jealous of your stand mixer.
