We're In!

After lots of sweet help and teamwork (I can't believe I didn't take pictures...we had my mom, Matt's parents, us, and Don all working to make it come together!) over the weekend, we spent our first night in the house on Sunday! Tanner and Caroline stopped by while we were moving and brought a house-warming bottle of champagne... so sweet! The next surprise came from Steph and Dustin, who left a little gift at our back door... a Yankee candle and Home Maintenance book- perfect!  Y'all are so sweet!

We've spent the last two nights unpacking and organizing, but we did manage to have our first home-cooked meal- spaghetti (pasta of course!).  Matt's a good are always more fun when people are in them :)

Last night we had chicken quesadillas in between tennis and, it sounds like we have kids.  But I will say it's so nice to be back in the area where all of our activities are!  It feels like so much time is added back into our days.

We've laughed the last two days because we both just look around constantly, taking it all in.  This place was a project for so long, and now it's finally home!  It was well worth the wait.  But a HUGE part of why the wait was easier was because we had Matt's parents taking us in and making their home ours.  I don't think our time with them could have gone any better. I am really blessed to have such sweet in-laws!

So here's where we stand:
Welcome mats make a house look homier!  Thanks, mom!
