Good News!

I have news!  On Saturday our fourth counter offer was accepted by the seller and we are officially under contract! Woo!  Our home inspection is on Thursday, and if everything goes well we should close in May sometime.  I was completely shocked when Dar called me on Saturday to say they had accepted our offer.  We were so far apart price wise, and he didn’t seem to be budging but I guess he was as tired of the process as we were.  The place needs a lot of updating, but the floor plan is great and the basement is finished here’s my favorite room.

The kitchen and living room are one big open great room with huge vaulted ceilings and skylights, which will be perfect for entertaining.  Eventually.  I’ve already started remodeling that kitchen in my head, I have big plans for it.  This is the basement,

And along with the house, that 9 ft pool table is also now ours.  We figured we might as well see if the seller was interested in getting rid of it, and apparently he was.  I absolutely hate that wood paneling, but I figure that’s not too difficult to do something about.  Anyway, so fingers crossed nothing huge turns up in the inspection!

The rest of the weekend was pretty eventful too.  Friday night I met up with Kacy, we had dinner and drinks and then wandered into Trader Joe’s and did some drunk grocery shopping.  I ended up with some really random crap, but it’s all good.  I’m sure I’ll use it eventually.

Saturday I took myself on a date to see The Hunger Games.  It was my first time venturing to a movie alone, and I have to say I didn’t hate it.  I didn’t need to share my skittles with anyone, and no one tried to talk to me during intense moments.  The only weird part was trying to find my seat in a dark theater when I had to run out to the bathroom.  There’s not other person marking it, haha.  Anyway, the movie was really good, although the book is  better but I think they did an awesome job with it.

Saturday night, my roommates and I ventured out in the rain for a girly night of entertainment.  It was a “Passion” party, and was absolutely hilarious.  I don’t think one girl left the house without buying at least something.  Good times. Yesterday, I did nothing except sit on the couch relaxing.  It was fantastic.

Now here I am back at work, anxiously anticipating Thursday. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Short and Sweet

I’m wearing white jeans today, but I have declared it acceptable to wear white before Memorial Day since it’s going to be 82 degrees.  You’re welcome.

I haven’t blogged since Tuesday because I am really boring, and there’s only so many times I want you to have to read “and then I watched TV in bed.”  You’re welcome.

I ate another turkey burger for dinner last night.  I think it was delicious, but I can’t be sure since my senses were already numb from three glasses of wine.  It didn’t stop there.  My head hurts today.

Darren and I talk about nothing but houses these days, and most of those phone calls end with one of us yelling in frustration.  We’re not actually mad at each other, but over the hoops and paper work that comes with buying a house. I am crossing my fingers and toes that this lame ass process is wrapped up by the time he gets here to visit next month.  Counter-offer number FOUR was submitted this morning.  Barf.

I’m meeting my girl Kacy for drinks tonight, because it has been far too long since that has happened.  As I previously mentioned, it’s going to be 83, so those drinks will be had outdoors and probably in great quantity.

Assuming I’m not throwing up tomorrow, there is a 87% chance of me going to see The Hunger Games alone in the middle of the day.  I am so excited.

I have an “engagement” party to attend tomorrow night.  Engagement is in quotes because there will only be females at this party, and there may or may not be the opportunity to purchase things.  For the bedroom.  Ahem.

Happy Weekend!

I Can’t Move my Arms

Because I am a huge follower and intrigued by things easily, after 4 weeks of listening to my ladies discuss Jamie Eason’s LiveFit workout plan every day, I finally caved and tried it last night.  I figured what the hell, I’ve been lacking in workout motivation and anything that tells me not to do cardio for four weeks sounds pretty fun.  Last night was Phase 1, day 1 aka chest and triceps.

I was pretty proud of myself for knocking out all 3 sets of 12 wide push-ups in boy fashion, fast forward to the narrow push-ups and I nearly fell on my face when attempting the first one.  In fact, even once I dropped to my knees I could barely squeeze them out.  I was laughing at how ridiculously hard they felt after all the chest exercises.  Anyway, my arms felt like jello by the end and I could barely shift gears in my car during my drive home.   This morning, every shift illicited a groan, and I thought I was in pretty good strength training shape!  Day 2 tonight.

I made it home despite the difficulties maneuvering my car, and spent the remainder of my evening working on Dar’s Valentine’s Day gift.  Ok, that’s a lie, it’s really a gift for me because I probably want it more than he does but I’m going to play it off as something for him.  He’ll appreciate it a little bit at least.  Worst comes to worse it’s something that will look nice sitting on a coffee table someday.

Other ridiculous things I’m currently contemplating are whether or not I’ll look like a giant creep if I go see Beauty and the Beast 3D alone on Saturday afternoon.  I’m thinking yes, but I might do it anyway because it’s my absolute favorite Disney movie.  Ever.  In fact, my nickname when I was little was Belle.  Ya know, Kel Bell, Belle, it works.  Also, should I walk back out to my car to retrieve my water bottle that I left in there?

Alright, well happy Wednesday!  Have a lovely day.
