wedding wednesday {no.18} + big news!


Also this past weekend, Rick and I had a chance to register for our wedding. I'm not going to lie... waltzing around 2 floors, crazy scanner gun in hand, checking off our ultimate home wish list was pretty awesome! We didn't go crazy of course (if you don't count the fact that Rick registered us for 33 white facecloths, lol), but it's nice to have an idea of the basics we both like and will eventually need. We picked out some pretty white dishes, glasses and flatware, knives and cutting boards, towels and linens, some barware, pans, a couple small appliances, and the ultimate wishlist items - Le Creuset in cobalt blue *sigh*...

So where are we going to put all this stuff? Well, in our new home! Finally, after 7 years of living in two different cities, after all the back and forth and late night drives, we purchased our first home right in the middle of where we both work. We looked at nearly 30 houses, all which didn't feel quite right until we found "the one". We instantly had this feeling of "Yep, this is home." I didn't want to leave the viewing that night! We quickly put in an offer (had a home inspection of course) and wrapped things up over just a couple of days, happy to see a "SOLD" sticker on the sales sign out front! I won't be sharing any pics quite yet (until we have those keys in our hands) but we move in June 28th, and you can bet i'll be sharing all the details then as we set up, decorate, and change a few things here and there to make it ours. I'm so excited!

  20. Congrats on your new home! Btw, I bought my guy (my personal chef, lol) a yellow Le Creuset pot for Christmas one year and we've been fighting about who gets to use it ever since (I like to make soups). I hope to someday acquire a few more pieces.

  25. Congrats!! So exciting! It's funny cause my husband and I just bought our very first place and our move-in date is June 28th!! You aren't moving to a new development on 8th st. are you? That would just be too weird!!!!
