Tuesday: Officially under contract again! WooHoo! We also went to see what exactly needed to be cleared out for our new driveway. The weather will be in the 80’s this week so hopefully we are able to make it over soon to work on it.

Wednesday: We went to Arlington to consign the clothes. It took about an hour which means no time left to do anything house related.

Thursday: Before going to Medieval Times we stopped at IKEA to get some kitchen inspiration. I half way left with a headache because that place is SO overwhelming. Awesome, but overwhelming. We found exactly what we were looking for and we are pretty sure we are going there for our kitchen stuff. It will be cheaper than custom cabinets and we really love the functionality of their stuff. Plus, it’s 20% off until the end of August.

Sunday: We went and started clearing out our new driveway today. We all know when I say WE I mean THEY. Jared and Johnny. Me and the boys watched and just enjoyed the nice weather.
Johnny had already started by the time we got there so he mowed this part which is up where our house will be.
This is by the road where our opening will be. I love that it’s in between 2 big trees. How cute is that?!
Here’s a little before and after of what they cleared out before they hauled the brush out of the way.
I thought this was cool. The tree grew right around the post.

Monday: We got an address today!! That’s so neat and exciting! Our kids will grow up on the same ground I grew up. I love that.
I guess there was more to it than just getting an address so I’ll let Jared tell about his day…
It’s always fun dealing with city government. It’s not for the faint of heart, I tell you that. After getting all the paperwork in order and getting signatures and driver license from Johnny, I headed to Cleburne to take care of this is one swoop.
