This have been a little quiet over here lately, as they are wont to be sometimes. I have a few updates for you on some sewing and crafty things that I hope to share very soon....but first, I want to show you what's been keeping me so busy.

This beauty is ours! Home ownership has been a whirlwind experience -- we saw it for the first time a few days before Hallowe'en and take possession on Nov. 29th. The whole house-buying process, from viewing to offering to closing, will take about a month from start to finish.  Even though some moments were absolutely terrifying, I'm actually shocked by how smoothly things played out.

We are keeping our current apartment until Jan. 1, so we'll have about 5 weeks to paint, make some minor changes, and move. To say I'm excited is a complete understatement. (Just ask my fella and my parents, who have heard me talk about little else since we signed on the dotted line). I'm hoping to share our progress here on the ol'blog.

Now, I just have to keep my head from totally exploding before Nov. 29. SO EXCITED!
