We put an offer on a house today! This is a call for prayers, crossed fingers, well wishes... whatever your personal good-vibe-sending method of choice is, we need it! There are two other offers, and we'll find out after 5 pm which one is accepted!
Here's our potential little fixer-upper, built in 1800!:
This would be quite the adventure of renovating and restoring, but the house has such great potential. Is it bad that both my husband and one of my best friends both said to me, "just think of the blog posts you can write if you get this house!" ??
I've been neglecting this little blog a bit as I finish up my blogging for Weddingbee... if you're interested, I've put up a few new posts over there lately: click here to read!
I'm celebrating my first St. Patrick's day as an O' with a Starbucks green tea latte and a cozy green sweater. The mister is studying for a big test tonight but I think we'll try to squeeze in a green beer too :)
My husband and I are alike in many ways... we have perhaps the exact same sense of humor, want to spend our time doing a lot of the same things (traveling ranking high on that list), and finding a movie or book or tv show that we'll both love is never hard.
But please file this one under 'Things My Husband Enjoys That Terrify Me":
Yes, that is really him.
He's been off this week on his annual Colorado trip with high school friends, one of whom lives in Colorado and skis a ridiculous number of days per year. And we're not talking resort skiing- most of the time it's backcountry, which involves hours of hiking all for a couple of runs in fresh powder.
Skiing is not my favorite, but I'll do it (poorly) about once a year as long as there is a ski LIFT involved. A grueling hike just to get to the top of something I'm really not dying to ski down? Thanks, but no thanks.
I'm not going to lie, I'm never excited when he leaves me behind every year for his ski trip. He always offers to bring me, but I know I'd end up sitting in a lodge drinking hot chocolate the whole time. Anyone else and their significant other have to deal with mismatched hobbies like we do?
Whether you truly believe the blubbering idiot had a change of heart or that he agreed to a plot created by ABC to draw more viewers by choosing his second choice only to dump her six weeks later for his first choice, is anyone else just glad it's over?
I was so stinking bored last night watching the finale, after the finale, actual last show. And I can't believe how much everyone is talking about it. It was on the front page of yahoo news, it's been on every talk show for the past two days, and -I KID YOU NOT- I talked about it with a patient yesterday- a 44-year-old male patient. But who am I kidding, I'll be right there on May 18th when they start the whole charade over again with Jillian at the helm.
I'm sure a lot of you have a similar scene outside your window today:
Duncan loved the snow for the first ten minutes or so, after which time he decided he didn't like it and wasn't going to walk in it anymore. He sat down and refused to move. The mister thinks he wasn't protesting the snow but rather the multi-color fleece that we put on him for his snow day walk. He carried him the whole way home anyways.
I'm not as excited for The Bachelor finale tonight as I should be- and it's because of all the stupid speculation about how it's going to go down. Do you believe all the RealitySteve hype? I suppose it's probably true (but I won't go into it here in case there are a few of you who don't want it spoiled!). I'm more excited about the rumor that Jillian will be the next bachelorette. The cute outfits alone will make it worth watching (as if I wouldn't anyways).
