"All good things come to he who waits"

What a fitting title for this blog entry. As things progress with the house, our soon to be new homeowner patience is starting to stray. Building a house has definitely been a test on both Ryan and me, but a very good test. Our official close date is June 25th! Which this Sunday makes only 2 MORE MONTHS to go! It makes things so real now, and thinking about moving in, having things delivered and ordering furniture makes me so incredibly giddy (I can't speak for Ryan- but I'm sure he feels the same way). In a way thinking about moving is also a little bittersweet, as our apartment at Whispering Hills is our official "first place" as a married couple. But nothing will compare to having our own house and making it a home.

This past week the inside of the house started to t
ake shape, as the drywall has been hung! Instead of looking through beams to see the master on the other side, there are walls and closets and doorways that are recognizable. Next Tuesday, we are headed to Nebraska Furniture Mart to purchase all of our appliances, furniture and carpet. Imagining where those things will fit in the house is a pretty neat feeling. And each of the things we have picked out is uniquely us...I just can't wait to see it all come together.
