SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



It's official! I closed on the sell of my house this past Friday! It was a bittersweet moment when I drove away from my empty house. On one hand I was thrilled beyond words to not have the stress of trying to sell a house anymore but I was also VERY sad! I think it is starting to sink in that in a few short weeks (3 weeks from tomorrow to be exact) I will be leaving Fayetteville for good. Oh, don't get my wrong, I'll be back. In fact I already have lunch plans with some of my favorite friends for when I have to come get my braces put back on. It still won't be the same though. It's almost not really the same now. I'm living with friends for the next few of weeks (Thanks Katie and Ashley) so it isn't like I have a place to settle in or anything. It's OK though! GOD IS GOOD! He sold my house and I am more than thankful!

After I signed my papers on Friday I went to Little Rock. I had some more of my stuff to move there. I had several things I wanted to do while I was in town for the weekend. One of which was to organize and pack up my WONDERFUL wedding presents. I have been so blessed to receive so many great gifts. And believe it or not they are still coming. BUT regardless of how thankful I am they still needed to be dealt with because my parent's dining room was out of control.




I can't believe I didn't take an after picture! You all would have been impressed. I organized it and packed it all up! You wouldn't even recognize the place. I'll try to take one this weekend while I'm there and show you!
On another note, SATURDAY IS THE FIRST RAZORBACK FOOTBALL GAME!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait for the game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OHHH GEEZZZZ! The mess! I remember vividly dealing with all of that! We had a bedroom at Flint's filled from floor to ceiling and a bedroom and my folks house completely taken over, too! It is so exciting to get all of the new, fun stuff, yet so overwhelming to deal with! I seriously have not made so many dumpster runs in my entire life as we did the first couple of weeks after we were married! I am so glad everything went well with the house! I know your feelings exactly...bitter/sweet. That is how I feel with our house. I believe that the Lord will provide for you a life in Little Rock that you love just as much as the life you have loved in NWA!

I fondly remember those days. My parents dining room and living room and my bedroom and you get the point looked the exact same way! You and Josh are so blessed. I hope you have a wonderful wedding and marriage.

Wow, that looks like what our dining room looked like up until about 2 weeks ago. We are still very unorganized. You must be getting excited, sounds like it is very close!
