Welcome to paradise!

This is the greeting we received this evening from our neighbors. What a great welcome for Mike and I! We pulled up in Mike's car, my mom's van and the big yellow Penske truck and the neighbors came over to welcome us to the neighborhood. Forgive me for not remembering their names, I am terrible about that. But they all seemed very nice and told us if we need anything at all to let them know. I love our neighborhood already!

We are sleeping in our house tonight for the first time. We finished closing this afternoon, picked up the moving truck and began loading all of our things. We still have a van load to bring up from Lees Summit, which we will get tomorrow. Mike wanted to spend the night tonight in the new home, so that is where we are.

We have bought a new bed for our bedroom, but it won't be delivered until June 2, so we are sleeping in the guest bedroom for the next couple of weeks...but oh what a difference from an apartment! I LOVE IT! I love having our own place and the privacy...we hung out on the deck this evening and let bella sniff around..she loves it too! She has a new set of rules in our house. She is only allowed in the kitchen/dining area and the basement, garage and backyard. I know....very different...but I think she is adjusting well...she seems happy already.

Tomorrow we will unload the rest of our items from the truck and will put everything in the garage until we figure out where to put everything. My mom, sister, brother in law and nephew will be coming over, my dad will stop by later in the afternoon.

Mike and I plan to go to Lowes first thing tomorrow morning to pick up a few a lawn mower..for instance!

Our subdivision is having a garage sale tomorrow...both of our neighbors are having them...who knows..maybe we will just set some stuff on the curb and see what happens...ha!

That wraps up our night..home sweet home we are...and it feels so good. Good night friends.

Congrats on the new house. It's been nice to see what you've been up to. Give me a call if you are ever in my neck of the woods.
