Hello Monday!

Hello Again!
I can't believe the weekend is ALREADY over!
I miss my blog =/ here's the thing though - I can't just write about nothing =/ i don't particularly care to ramble on and on about just whatever comes to mind.
Since we are saving as much as we can and only making purchases for the new house until we close, we aren't living very exciting....OK we aren't living very blog-worthy lives! haha! I know that is silly but we spend a LOT of time in our bedroom.  That is THE only room that stays cool since our A/C went out over a month ago. I can honestly say I don't know how we have managed for the past month.  Unfortunately, because our room is so small, the only place to hang out is on the bed. That seems great but I'm to the point now where the bed isn't comfortable to me any more and NOW I am having a hard time sleeping =(
Thankfully there appears to be an end to the madness...we are anxiously awaiting our closing date that we should be receiving in about 2 weeks with the approval letter. Our realtor said that the closing date will be within 30 days of the letter. SO we are looking at around the end of October at the latest...fingers crossed lol! For those of you wondering WHY we have waited so long, it is because we are buying a short sale property.  In the reality of it all - we are actually very fortunate to be moving along in the process so quickly.  I know, 3-4 months to close on a house does NOT seem fast but it IS for a short sale.

The Husband and I did walk around Ikea for a couple hours on Saturday. That was fun - if nothing else we came up with some new ideas for the house. We designed a couple of the rooms and additional furniture pieces.  We had a really great time together but once we got in the truck, we started seeing dollar signs. We have a plan to be able to get a lot of the stuff we want before or once we move in. Hopefully everything stays right on track.

While we were out and about we tried a new restaurant.  It is on the other side of town from where we live, so we won't be frequenting the place but it was amazing. I know I will want to go next time we are on that side of town. It is a Mexican restaurant.
The service was wonderful, the food was phenomenal. I was so so happy =) I could also eat Mexican food everyday =)
We are planning a trip BACK to Old Time Pottery sometime after we move into the house SOOOO I may have to convince the Mr. to take me back there =) I have been thinking up all sorts of reasons to try and make it over to that restaurant haha! it was so yummy!!

I think that is really the only things going on right now for us. I hope to have a project posted tomorrow. We have lots that we have been working on and still lots more to come! I can't wait =)

Happy Monday!

We are doing a big time budget/saving money right now and I sometimes feel like I don't have blogging content. Isn't that so sad?! I'd still like to hear about your day-to-day and potential furniture for rooms though! I love that kind of thing! :)

I agree! I also can't blog about nothing or random things, and so my life isn't always blog-worthy either! Bad news about your AC :( that sucks :(
