It’s Official – We Own A Home!

Well it’s official! We bought a house! After our walk through this morning, we got a call from our title company this afternoon that the loan docs were ready and we could come to the office to close!

(so we totally forgot to take pics while signing documents…but that folder right there folks contains a copy of it all! Signed, sealed, delivered, I’m yours it’s ours!)
The walk through was so exciting…we didn’t take any pictures becausae as of right now the appliances are not installed…so it just didnt seem complete. However, the tile, carpet, countertops and blinds are all installed and they looked great! We are so excited to see the finished product soon and to start making a life in our new home!!

Moving day will be here before we know it. We plan to move soon! Maybe even next weekend! Which would sort of rock because I won’t be here. I’m headed to NYC on Tuesday for work throught he end of the week and then staying the weekend to visit my good friend Stephanie! I can’t wait to spend a weekend in NYC during the fall…this midwestern girl misses her favorite season.

So anyway, back to the move…hopefully, if all goes well with the finishing touches on the house, Justin can move while I’m gone Saturday and I’ll come home to our new home Sunday evening…what a great end to a week away from home!

The rest of the evening we ordered take out from PF Changs and parked ourselves promptly on the couch. After watching lots of DIY Network and HGTV (we’ve been bitten by the house bug) we dipped out for a quick trip to Target. We were out of Blueberry Frosted Mini Wheats…my breakfast of choice before a run so we needed to stock up before the Moon Valley Grasshopper Bridge 5K that we are running tomorrow. On the way home we swung through the drive through at Starbucks for an evening treat. Justin went with a chai tea latte and I grabbed a Pumpkin Spice…and this time it tasted deeeeeeeeeeelish!

The rest of my waking hours today will be spent laying on this couch, toggeling back and forth between the TV (aka HGTV) and my book. Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner. So far, so good. For those of you who don’t know her, Jennifer Weiner is the brains behind the book ‘In Her Shoes’ which I’m sure most of you have seen by this point…the movie was pretty good, the book was better. She’s been one of my favorite authors for quite some time, and I have to say her first book Good In Bed was definitley the best….if you’ve never read it…you should. While I’m trying to relax this evening, I’m definitley excited for the race tomorrow. Now that I’ve really gotten myself focused on this whole running thing, I think I’m hooked! There was a bit of talk on Twitter a few days ago about running the The Iron Girl 10K in Scottsdale on December 11 and I’m seriously considering it! I have the Phoenix 10K scheduled for November 6th, so that’d be a nice break inbetween races and you can’t beat the weather in Phoeinx that time of year…sooo I may have just talked myself into it!

Alright, time to relax some more and then hit the hay! Look for my 2nd Race Recap tomorrow!

What do you do the night before a race? Do you follow a routine? Chill out? Go for a short, easy run?
