It’s true…We’ve got a little one set to debut November 1st! We’re over the moon excited at this little miracle. It’s truly a blessing to be able to carry life within you, and our hearts are so grateful. We’ve waited for this moment, but are thrilled and thankful for His timing.
So if you’ve been wondering, really, where I’ve been…it’s sleeping. And when I have to get up, it’s work (which has been fulfilling and busy), figuring out our housing situation and squeezing in a date night here and there around my stud’s busy schedule. But mainly sleeping. We really are so excited about this new adventure and couldn’t be happier! It’s off to bed now…eeeehhmm, around 8:30pm.
One of the things I love about being in the military is the traditions. One being balls! I mean, how often do you get the opportunity to get dresses up–and not just a cocktail dress–and dance the night away with your hubs looks oh so fine! It’s sooo fun, and lucky me, we have a ball coming up soon. Yay!
But what to wear?? I mean, that’s always the question, but really, what to wear. I don’t have an extra gown just hanging out in my closet. And since I don’t really want to own a gown (who wants to wear it twice?) I’m going to rent. I’ve never used this site before but I’ve heard good things, so I’m going to use Rent the Runway. Has anyone used them before??
But looking through their gowns, I’ve got a few dresses I just love.
They’re all from Rent the Runway–differing prices to rent. It’s an early May ball, which, judging by the snow that’s coming down right now, maybe I should of put some long(er) sleeve dresses on my list.
Any suggestions on which dress I should pick? Any favorites out there?
There’s been an interesting turn of events of here–one that is taking up a lot of thought and research in our current lives. We moved to Colorado mid-October and signed a lease to rent the house we’re in, this one:
And we like it. It the part of town we live in (and wanted to live in) it’s all older, cottage style houses. So a new build with four bedrooms and an adorable house to boot is pretty rare. Which is why we were so excited to rent it!
But now, we’ve landed into an interesting dilemma. We have two options: buy or move. Our landlady offered us first crack to buy the house we’re living in, but if we don’t want to buy, it’s going on the market in the next couple of months.
Our lease won’t be up until mid-October, but (if we don’t buy) the timing of moving into another rental really doesn’t work for us. And speaking of rentals, finding a new(er) construction on this side of town is rare. A perfect rental could pop up tomorrow, who knows!
Wheeew. We weren’t expecting this and with our current schedules, it couldn’t be worse timing. But really, is there ever good timing for things like this? So– do we buy, stay where we’re at (and happy with) and become landlords when we move again to another state. We don’t know when that move will be, we’re just pretty confident there will be a when. Or, do we hunt until we find another rental we like and move? Oh the decisions…and until we make a decision, doing anything to the house we’re in just seems like a waste–especially if we don’t buy so I’m sitting tight for now.
Thoughts for me? Any buying/selling/renting house stories to tell me? Lay ‘em on me!
Hey ya’ll. Hope your Easter was great!! I got to go to brunch (my most favorite meal ever) and it was delish. Bacon everywhere! And we had a sunny and warm day. Hopefully Colorado keeps this warm weather…I could get used to perfect 70/80 degree temps.
I haven’t been amazing at keeping posts regularly flowing on here, and I really haven’t done a whole lot with my house either. But I can’t seem to stop Instagraming…I hope it doesn’t get old (like Twitter….anyone else?) So if you don’t already follow me on Instagram, here’s what life has been like recently.
