Happy Valentine's Day


I'm so happy we were able to spend one last holiday in our home before we move. I love Valentine's day! Of course, Valentine's is all about your about your sweetheart but it's also all about love and Josh and I love our babies so much! Growing up my mom and dad always did something special for me and my sister on Valentines. My sister and I would get a rose, a big box of chocolates and a little stuffed animal. I wanted to carry on that tradition I grew up with for my boys. Only I really wanted a way around the huge box of chocolate part of it to switch things up a bit. 

I thought these GoGo squeeZ printables would be perfect! Both of my boys are obsessed with applesauce, but I mean really, who isn't? It's so yummy and the perfect snack. GoGo squeez makes it so easy to download and print off the paper wrappers. Just cut them out and either tape them or use a glue stick to stick them to the pouches. They actually have lots of fun crafts and activities found here. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!! Have so much fun celebrating this holiday all about love!

thank you GoGo squeez for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 








House Update

Hey guys!

I wanted to give anyone who is following along with out house and home build a quick update. So I can't exactly remember what the last update was so I'll start here by saying we got an offer on our house within like a day or two of it being listed. It was a full cash offer which was amazing and everything was going perfectly except... The woman who made the offer actually made the offer on behalf of her mother who lived out of state and had never seen the house. So fast forward a week to the inspection and this was the first time the woman was actually walking through the house... with the inspector who was obviously pointing out everything little thing wrong with it #facepalm. Also, double face palm. Her realtor got the time mixed up so when I had a knock at my door 2 hours BEFORE the inspection, I was still in pajamas, washing dishes and Finley was napping in my room on the unmade bed. How's that for a first impression of your new home haha

Needless to say, she backed out and we went to the second offer which is a full price offer but they will need financing. Which means the home now needs to be appraised. Inspections happened this week and all was well! We're paying a little bit in closing costs to help fix some of the things that really did need to be fixed (crack in the driveway, a couple electrical outlets) BUT we are SOLD! Well okay, we do need to get through the appraisal next week but I think it will go great!

Having the first lady back out was a huge bummer. We found out two days before we were leaving for California so it kinda was a big kick in the butt. However, we are so excited for the new couple that is buying the house now and we are super excited to be able to stick to our timeline of breaking ground on our home build in March!

We have one more meeting with our architect (I keep changing my mind!) and then we will send in the plans to the city for our permits. I'm still planning on writing a post talking numbers and I'm so excited to show you guys the floor plan and exterior! For now I'll just leave you with this mood board I created of the exterior so you can get an idea of what we are going for.
