We are HOMEOWNERS!!

I realize that it has been months since I’ve posted anything and I feel like I am always apologizing for MIA, probably because I go MIA alot.  For anyone who has been wondering what happened to us after we moved to California let me give you a quick update.

We got settled in pretty quickly.  Jared and I found jobs within a few weeks (we got lucky) and the kids adjusted to school well and made friends.  We reunited with family and friends, Jared and I took a trip to Seattle, I took a trip to Vegas and then we bought a house.  YUP, you read that right, WE ARE FINALLY HOMEOWNERS!!

It all happened so quickly!  I mean, this was the first house we put an offer on and then we got the keys in less than 30 days of putting in the offer.  That’s how quickly it escalated!  I’m not complaining.  I love the house!  Jared and I wanted a house with character and not some cookie cutter row house and that’s what we got.  What’s even better is that the inside is fully renovated to our taste so it is move in ready.  Now, if we can just hurry up and move in (the flu interfered with our moving plans).

In case you were wondering what the house with character looks like, don’t worry I got you covered.

10929949_10153143992599274_5368769359730543571_nI love the kitchen even more!  See, I told you that I love this house.  I can’t wait to get back to baking in MY kitchen.

BathroomThe guest bath is pretty sweet too although I’m pretty biased about the house.

That was my quick update on what’s been going on. I’ll post more pictures once we get settled in.  I really do hope that it’s not another 6 months until another post.  I will make sure that one of the first things I make in my kitchen is something yummy that I can on the blog with you all.
