Life Updates.

1. We close on our house in a week. A WEEK. Holy cow!!! It happened so fast, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

2. Garth and I have been having packing parties every night this week.

3. We are so stinkin' excited we can hardly stand it.

4. We are caught up with Big Bang Theory and kinda bummed it's over. Any suggestions for what we should get next?

5. Garth and I are reading The Five Love Languages and seriously loving it.

6. There is too much football on right now...and soccer.

7. I am feeling back to normal post surgery. My eye has stopped hurting and my doctor gave me the okay to lift, bend, and drive last week. Words do not describe how incredible it felt to get off the couch and get back to normal life.

8. I am thankful my vision is starting to come back slowly but surely. Praise God! It will still be about a month before I regain vision and up to a year to fully get it back.

9. I leave with you a picture of my awesome eye patch I get to wear to bed. Happy Thursday!

Way to rock that eyepatch, girl!!

OMG, we totally did packing parties and then painting parties when we moved into our first home. Such a special time. YAY!!

Jen Caputo said...

Woohoo - packing parties! Can't wait to hear all about the house.
I recommend you catch up on Parks and Recreation next. Season 1 was no good, Season 2 was awesome. Skip Season 1 all together, we did and it doesn't take long to catch on.

Yay for closing... I know it is an exciting time! I remember when my husband and I were moving into our new house in November 2009. I was so excited to be leaving apartment living. Good luck with getting moved and settled in!

Also, I am glad you are doing well.

I'm excited for you and your new place! Being homeowners is a fun journey.

We're Big Bang fans too -- that show leaves our belly's aching we've laughed so hard. I don't really have any other recommendations... other than LOST, if you haven't already watched it!

I can't believe you close in a week! Can't wait to see the new home!

Great start to a great new year for you guys! Congrats!

I wanted to recommend the show "Raising Hope". I caught the entire series on Hulu (free until Feb. 8). It is hilarious.

Good Luck with the move, I cannot wait to see pictures of your new home.
