Our First House!

For those of you who don't know, Josh and I are building a house down here in New Mexico. We came down here on a house hunting trip and after looking at existing homes, decided that the price of existing versus new was the same so why not have something all to ourselves that will be brand new.  Our house should be finished sometime early September. We are so excited and can't wait to get into it! My sister made us realize that 2009 is going to be a huge year for us: Josh graduated, new job, moved to a new state, new house, and a baby all in one year. Whew! That is a lot. We are in fully furnished corporate housing right now for a few weeks and then we will have to move into an apartment until our house is done. Boy do I miss all of my "stuff." All of our stuff is in storage until the 23rd of June and everyday I say I could do this and then realize I will have to wait because one thing or another I need to complete the project is in storage.  Josh and I packed just enough clothes and things to get us through a week and a half. I can't wait to get my stuff back! We go and see the progress on our house at least twice a week.  Every time we go in I tell Josh I still can't believe that it is ours. Ha! We have a house!!! Our very own house.  I am truly excited for it and look at colors and decorating ideas everyday.  If anyone has any good decorating tips or ideas please feel free to share them with me. We will keep you updated on the house and when we can actually close and move in.
