I've been a little busy!!!

Whoa have things been crazy! I'm finally back to getting normal amounts of sleep and not staying up all hours of the night putting things together! It's been exhausting! Here's a few photos more to come when I get a chance to take some! I have hung blinds and curtain rods, put together our stools for the island and breakfast bar. We also purchased our fridge, washer and dryer right after settlement and that was delivered two days later. We bought a sofa and hair last week and we picked that up over the weekend. Everything is coming together nicely! Very slowly, but nicely! :)

5 days in!

40 hours into living in our new home I locked myself out!! Chris was at work over an hour away so our AWESOME PM came by and ended up sawing our door handle off in the garage to the foyer. Don't ask why I locked that door because I have no idea! We had our appliances delivered Wednesday and one load of wash in, we discovered a pin hole leak in the drain hose!! We called Home Depot and they had a service company come out Friday am to replace. Guess what? Their replacement line cracked outside as they were walking in. Long story short I ended up just going to HD and taking the one off the model and fixing it myself! Anyways, so far, we love our Ryan Home. No complaints here :) pictures to come once it doesn't look like a cardboard compactor exploded in our house!

I cannot believe how fast this process has gone by. I've always been jealous of anyone's closing post so this feels especially good :)

We're still on...

So far, everything is looking good for Monday at 1! Our final approvals have come in and that's a huge relief. If NVR makes Monday easy breezy I will be the happiest girl on the planet. Cross your fingers for us and hopefully everything looks good on Saturday at our Pre settlement meeting!

6 days!

6 days until closing. Unbelievable how fast time has flown by!! Good news came on today. Our new estimated closing cost is just short of $4k less then we originally anticipated!!! Woohoo!!!!! This makes us super excited! :) now we just have to hope it stays that way come Friday when we check in before getting our check. I did some more DIY decorations this weekend. Some animal sihlouettes if our furbabies and a little welcome sign! Happy Monday!!

9 days

We're set to close on the 11th at 1pm. And our Pre settlement demo is on the
9th. We went by last week and had a water leak in the basement from a drywall nail through a pipe. That's all fixed, thank goodness! When we went by yesterday they were doing some final paint touchups and punch out details. We're getting very excited! The last photos are some DIY projects I've been doing :)
