Moving. Apartments. Travel. Wedding

Good morning! I hope the day is being well to you…and if it’s not, I found this on Pinterest and love the positive attitude behind it…..

I have in fact been staying busy with work, packing, summertime activities that are always around (showers, birthdays, bbq’s, etc..) However in the midst of everything the selling of our house has continued and we continue to pray and cross our fingers that everything still goes according to plan. Here is how our life has been…

1.) We put a deposit on an apartment! We wanted to make sure we have something locked into place for when our house sells (I’m staying positive) so we don’t end up homeless! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am so excited to move in…it has a pool, a view, lots of green space for Telli to run in, shops and restaurants nearby and best of all….a 5 minute commute to work!!! BOOM! The only downfall that it might have is the actual space inside the apartment. We saw pictures, but it wasn’t available to actually see; and it has a different layout with angled walls, so that could be interesting, but hey…it’s only temporary living for 10 months so I think we can make it work! ๐Ÿ™‚

2.) We traveled down to Amarillo, Texas for the weekend to attend a beautiful wedding! I only worked a half day on Thursday, so it was great to leave early in the day light! Telli loves road trips-and I think she knows if she will be in the car for a while because her bed is in the back of the Subaru surrounded by luggage! But she loves to look out at the sights as we drive!

We unfortunately saw too may fires as we traveled south on I-25. There was one 20 miles south of our house, a couple near Colorado Springs and a few even further south of Pueblo. Ive seen smoke travel from fires before, but the one that was just south of Colorado Springs, we could see flames. It was pretty crazy how big they were and how many there were. We will be continuing to pray for rain and that no more structures get burned!

We arrived to Nate’s parents, late on Thursday night and enjoyed sleeping in a little on Friday morning. (Although I did wake up at 5:30 with Telli to take her to the bathroom and feed her. I was pretty out of it and was happy to go back to bed!)

Nate always loves going back home, not only to see family, but for the food! Between BBQ and Mexican food, it was pretty much our diet for the three days. We went to a new restaurant in Amarillo called Tylers BBQ.

It was delicious! I enjoyed a shredded beef sandwich with a secret recipe potato salad. I asked the owner Tyler, for the recommendation “potato salad or coleslaw?” He told me to definitely try the potato salad because it is his own recipe. It had good flavor, but to be honest it was too smooth for my liking. I enjoy the chunky potato salad! ๐Ÿ™‚

That evening we got together for a rehearsal dinner. It was delicious food! I got to meet a lot of Nate’s extended family from Arkansas that I still hadn’t met yet. What sweet southern people they are! We took some family pictures and I thought these just turned out so good!

Saturday was jam packed with wedding! We met early to help decorate everything, and it turned out beautiful! Nate was in charge of the music, and myself and Ashlan (my sister-in-law) were in charge of serving cake and punch! It was a beautiful service and wedding in the beautiful Amarillo Botanical Gardens.

I saw the ring bearer and flower girl running through the gardens, aren’t they adorable?

The cakes!!!

After a wonderful and fun day, we enjoyed sometime in the hot tub! We had fun watching the dogs “want to jump in to join.”

We made the trip home yesterday and when we arrived in Denver we were greeted with some much needed rain and thunderstorms! As we climbed the mountain, we approached this cool looking storm cloud! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh where, oh where has this little blog been…..

Good morning to you all! It sure is a beautiful morning….until the heat comes out AGAIN today! It think it’s supposed to get near 100! Ooofta! Anyway, I’m sorry it has been a while, ย it has been a whirlwind around our house lately and I have just been too busy and when I’m not busy too tired to write anything.

I love where I live……but not for long…..fingers crossed.

Here’s the culprit:

We are under contract with our house!!! It came about rather quickly. If you’re not aware there is a make me move option on zillow that allows people to see that you have an interest in selling your house. I wasn’t completely sold on going through everything that needed to be done to sell the house yet and therefore had no intentions/preparedness to sell. A couple in our small group recently sold their house and it was under contract within a couple hours of the listing!!! The Denver market is crazy right now! At just about the same time we received an email that someone was VERY interested in our house. She looked at it, loved it and now were just waiting for the inspection and appraisal! We appreciate any prayers.

Needless to say, our life has been a mix of de-cluttering

TEVJcyuLrRoyZ78mOO7288khGl5v4N9Xsh5dJKyhomI

organizing, painting trim, adding closet doors,

MI5iz6MicqJ5Gxuwl6-dsdBTMa6GPyMVT6eMeJ_T9CM

multiple trips to good will, multiple trips to our new storage shed,

She’s so silly…..but she LOVES the dog park—and the creek that runs through it!

So besides that my life has been pretty boring…..I will be honest, a true workout has not existed in a couple weeks. When I have tried to take Telli for a brief walk, we tend to meet up with the neighbor dogs,and then they just play until they are worn out. So much for some exercise for me!

Breakfast I’ve been making oatmeal and and dinner has typically been pasta, cereal, eggs or a salad-whatever is quick, easy–even some sushi rolls from the grocery store (yes I was hesitant at first, but boy they are delish!)

Oh and I can’t forget, it was my birthday yesterday and in the midst of all that’s going on, Nate woke up early to make me breakfast before an early morning work meeting, and he took me to Menchies for some frozen yogurt! What an amazing man I have! I got the dole whip (mmmmmm….my favorite!) with almonds and lots of nerds! ๐Ÿ™‚ Such a kid I can be sometimes!

I hope I don’t leave you all for that long of a period again, but if I do, I hope you understand! I miss you and I miss my blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever sold a house before? Stressful or a breeze?
