I Have Some News!!!!

Our house is finally....


I don't know why I'm always so surprised when God's timing is perfect. His timing on this was truly perfect.

I've been waiting to post this until all the inspections were done and everything was all official-like. Well, now it is! We close on our current house and the new house at the end of this month! YIKES!!!! We're on vacation right now and I'll have about 2 weeks to get our lives stuffed into boxes once we get home.

Please be patient with me if my posts have more to do with cardboard boxes than furniture rehab for the next few weeks. Wait! Do you think I could rehab my moving boxes? :-)

Is it completely sad that the thing I'm most excited about is that this will provide me with blog fodder for a good long time?

CONGRATS, Kimba! I know that's a huge answer to prayer for you. How exciting! I think you should now make it your mission to have the cutest moving boxes EVER...then plan a great re-do for after the move, where you turn your boxes into a dining room hutch or something. Hey...if anyone could do it, it would be you! ;-)

Andrea said...

Congratulations! Selling & buying houses can be so stressful.

My whole family makes fun of me because I must get this look in my eye and someone will say, "Oh, you're going to be on her blog now!"

Tam said...

Yes all the MOVING and new decorating will make great BLOG FODDER!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I know what you mean about supplying you with blog fodder. Our new house sparked my blogging. I can not wait to see your new home. I know that even if all you talked about was packing it would be worth reading.
Happy Packing,

Congratulations! Try to enjoy the rest of your vacation. Don't let the move consume your thoughts! Moving provides us a chance to purge some things we don't really need anymore. What a great feeling to feel a little lighter once you get to the new house:)

Amanda Jo said...

PRAISE THE LORD! I am so excited for you!!

You're right about the Lord, His timing really is perfect!

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

I know what you mean about "blog fodder" too....I think I started a list of things I could blog about.

Kris said...

Congratulations! (Especially in this market!) What a relief I'll bet! Good luck on the move and can't wait to see what you can do with a can of spray paint and some cardboard! :)

Amy said...

Good for you! I could use some of your blog fodder ideas for when I get ready to buy another and sell my own home. Good luck to you.

Lacy said...

I am so happy for you. God has the most perfectd timing. I know you are thrilled and I like the rest of the gals...look forward to seeing your new place. Thanks for the furniture posts, I have now begun painting whatever I can get my hands on. Your the bomb dot com girl!

Susie Harris said...

Yeah!!! Im exicited for you... Now to pack up... Hope you get some rest while on vacation but Im sure your thinking about all of those boxes.. I think it's kinda fun myself... weird I know. I never had the chance to move alot when I was younger. I know for some this is a blessing... I just think its fun to be somewhere new. We built our house on family land where I grew up. Maybe one day I will fly out of this nest that I have loved for so long... Anyway... best wishes to you. Id help pack if I could, smile... Susie H~

Mrs. B said...

Hi Kimba! That is such great news! Woohooo! I'm sure that is such a relief for you, even if you do have to fit packing into 2 weeks.

I see I've missed a lot while I've been away from blogland. Congratulations on being featured on TCB!!! That is so cool!

Hope you're enjoying your vacation!

Congratulations, what a great answer to prayer!!! We might be in the same boat soon, needing to sell a house in a hurry and talking about the various ways to pack and unpack. When I am not talking about bridal parties and weddings, that is. Eeek. I need a staff to help out!

Let's see...you settle on both houses at the same time...It is taking every ounce of me not to scream out I TOLD YOU SO!!! I was just wondering a couple of days ago if it had sold....I am so happy for you..and yes, yet again, the Lord proves HIS timing is always. Amen!

Angela said...

Hooray!!! Especially double hooray since it's such a horrible market right now. But then that's just the Lord showing off, isn't it?
