There are a few things in life where I actually take a step back and hand everything over to my husband that is related to the family. We love doing things together. I love being in the middle and helping out in matters and listening to whatever the topic is and yes having my say too.

But I have to say that when it comes to owning a home he is the one that truly makes it happen. I am the one that would be perfectly happy renting a apartment for the rest of our life. I guess it comes to trust (from the current owners) and risk. I am not a risk taker when it comes to homes. If there is any risk I would rather back out.

My husband on the other hand makes the process of owning a home look easy. He takes it by the horns. I have told him many times today that I am so grateful that he is taking over on this because I would have put my foot down at the beginning. He returns by telling me that if it were not for me he would let a lot slide so I guess we are a good pair. But all in all… I am so thankful for him being the man of this house and dealing with everything.

Expensive piece of furniture

Yep, that is what I feel for. I have been searching for a certain piece to turn a dining room into a playroom. My whole idea was to come up with something from Pottery Barn without purchasing the “name” itself. I spent hours looking for the right piece that could pull off what I had in mind. And you know what…. My awesome father-in-law will be making my dream into a reality. I’m so excited that I just had to share. Here is a picture of it…. I can’t wait!

Life has been busy!

Life has been busy! I spent many hours researching schools, homes and the Greenville area. We spent last week there and were greeted by a wonderful family who happens to be a resident at Greenville Memorial Hospital. They were ever so kind and took us in and shared their beautiful home with us. We spent all day with our realtor, traveling the town and becoming accustomed to the surroundings. After walking through 20 plus homes and about 5 apartment complexes we made a offer on a home and have a signed contract.

In 2 weeks, Eric will complete medical school. In 3 ½ weeks our family will be here to celebrate Eric and his accomplishments as a DOCTOR. My husband will be a Doctor! Looking back I have to say that the last 4 years have flown by. That anyone can do this. But in reality, I know there were times that were slower and harder than others.

Perks about Greenville…
1. My family/friends are coming to visit.
2. Sweet wine.
3. My brother and cousin Ash are a hop and skip away.
4. We will have a pay check.
5. My hubby and kids are there.
6. New memories will be made.
7. It’s God’s plan.
