TSS: Taking a Short Break

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday. This is going to be a very quick post because I have a lot going on this weekend. You see, hubby and I purchased a home – well, we will have purchased it after our closing tomorrow – and this week is packing/moving week! I’m beyond excited about this house, I haven’t mentioned it much here because I’ve been so nervous that somehow the whole thing would fall through, but it’s going to happen so now I can finally allow myself to talk about it! It’s a townhome and it’s new construction in an existing neighborhood. So we get all the benefits of new construction – we got to pick everything out, we are the only people who have ever lived there, the house is beyond beautiful, etc. – with all the benefits of an existing, fantastic neighborhood! There’s a town center with restaurants and shops directly across the street, and it’s in an excellent area with great schools, parks, nature trails, etc. I’m extremely excited. 🙂

So tomorrow is the closing, this week I am working a full week at work and packing today and the next few nights after work, and next Monday we are moving!

Because of that I’m going to abandon the blog for at least a week, maybe two. I have a blog tour post scheduled for the 15th but other than that you may not hear from me for a little while.

What are you up to this Sunday?

  1. Congrats! So exciting! Sounds like it’s perfect for me and the hubby when we retire. I am reading War and Peace for the read along and need to start The Crimson Room for my Book Group. See you in 2 weeks, will miss ya!

  2. congrats on your new home & good luck with the move. almost done listening to “lucky” by alice sebold. what a book. raining here in northern NJ. i don’t mind though- i love being out in the rain.

  3. Wow, congratulations, Heather! That’s so amazing! I hope the house is the perfect place for y’all. I hope your move goes smoothly — moving can be really stressful, but it’s great that you’re moving into a place you know is going to be permanent.

  4. Ooh congrats!!

    Are you going to the UCF book festival 4/16? I think we’re going to have the blogger get together after that around 5:00 pm that day. Can you make it?

  5. Congrats on getting a house! No plans on this spring-like day in Chicago besides working on a reflection paper for my class. But next weekend, Grandma, Mom and I are going to Smuckers’ Stars on Ice!! I got tickets for Christmas and I have excited ever since. Saturday can’t come soon enough!!

  6. Congratulations!!! You will NEVER forget the excitement of your first home. I’m with Lisa AND don’t forget to post some pics too! ENJOY

  7. Congrats on the move! We’re smack-dab in the middle of buying a house at the moment and while it’s kind of an overwhelming, long process, the newness of change is around the corner and I can’t wait!

    Also, Heather, can I recommend a new novel to you? Check out my novel Looks Like Love! I’d love to know your thoughts about it! Blessings.
