Inspiration & a Disclaimer

A friend, who shall remain nameless, has inspired me to keep this up like I used to back in the day. I used to have a website of my own where I’d bitch and moan about stuff too, and it’s since been erased. So, instead of keeping this blog boring with reports about houses and “building a life together” type information, it’s just going to be a blog about me. The hubs doesn’t (and seemingly won’t) contribute, so I may as well say what I want to about everything and anything.

So, as a disclaimer, if I offend anyone in posts to follow this one, my apologies. Sort of. If you’re reading this chances are you know what a sarcastic beeotch I can tend to be…and if you don’t know me…you’ll get a good gist of me going forward.

PS – I watched the Perez Hilton show on VH1 last night, and that and the Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style are tied in first for my favorite new shows on TV.

PPS – Back to the boring house hunting stuff – the hubs found a house online today that could quite possibly be “the one.” We’re looking at it tonight. Fingers crossed, all three of you that read this!

It’s Tuesday.

Yep, boring post title for a non-eventful day. The home buying itch has reached it’s peak right now. I just want to be in OUR house. I say our house because I haven’t settled on any of the ones we’ve looked at. We’re looking again tomorrow. Also we’re officially preapproved (by our previous mortgage lady – we missed her and went back!) so…all we need now is a house. :)

In non-house related news, my birthday is Thursday (boring 27!) and then this weekend we’re going to my folks house and taking in a Brewers game Saturday night. It’ll be nice and chilly. :)

House hunting report.

Well, we looked at a bunch of houses in Richfield last night. One was a slight possibility, but…I dunno. The backyard was AWESOME – huge with a fire pit. It had a dining room (nearly impossible to find in houses in our price range, or of houses that we seem to look at) and a “finished” basement that needed a little work. But, it had everything we wanted. HOWEVER, the bedrooms were TINY, and there were only two. The “master bedroom” had a full size bed in it, and that was a tight fit. Considering I registered for stuff for the hubs’ queen size bed – our room will at least have to be able to fit that. :) So, back to the drawing board. Not to mention I didn’t have the feeling in that house, like that was it. I AM supposed to get that feeling, right?

Anyway, we’re going to try to go out again on Saturday with Mary Jane, our Realtor, and then open houses on Sunday.

I’m secretly hoping that my unspoken plan of living in a new house by Halloween comes true. But, I’m not going to sell ourselves short with a lame house in exchange. :)

Happy Humpday.

I attempted to have the hubs join me in “blogging” but he apparently doesn’t want to. I’ll keep working on him. :)

Tonight we’re going on our first official house hunt as a married couple. We went to some open houses a couple weeks ago and everything sucked, so now we’ll give it a whirl with our Realtor. As much as I would like for us to live in Minneapolis, everything it seems like we’re going to look at is in Richfield. It’d have to be a pretty fancy house for me to move to Richfield I think. Houses are more affordable in Richfield…but I LIKE living in Minneapolis. I suppose I should just shut up until we actually look at stuff.

The rest of the week will include (here’s hoping) a massive cleaning of our apartment, thank you notes, and more house hunting. :)

Not much to report, or maybe there is?

So, I figure I should post something since I haven’t really since the wedding. But, not is happening so, not much to say.

This weekend we’re going to Oshkosh/Fondy for a friend’s wedding shower and to spend some time with friends and family (while not at our wedding!). We didn’t get to talk to many people during the wedding so it will be nice to just hang out. The weather looks gorgeous, and we have a nice 3 day weekend to spend there. Monday night we have tickets to see Ben Harper in Minneapolis so that will be fun.

(I should also mention I got to see my favorite band Queens of the Stone Age twice last weekend, along with Rage Against the Machine. SO EFFING GOOD. It was worth all the rain soaked clothes, lost sleep, miles driven, and potential illness induced by it all.) :)

Starting next Tuesday-ish, the hubs and I are going to start looking for houses, officially and for real. We’re going to try to be in a house by this fall and I am SO EXCITED! We can’t wait to get out of our apartment. It’s long overdue.

Also, we’re going to attempt to get our “thank yous” done this week from the wedding too. It’s been nice to not have to think about wedding stuff for a few weeks, but we need to get in gear and take care of that already. So, sit tight, yours will be in the mail soon!
