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.

First of all, this is my 100th post! Yea!! Too bad I'm going to waste it on excuses!!! I still have every intention of "catching up" on here but I'm not sure when that will happen. You see, I close on my house this Friday, PTL, and so my days have been spent packing, moving, cleaning, etc. The challenge is that although I am leaving my home I'm not leaving Fayetteville yet. Trying to pack for another 3 1/2 weeks of house hopping can be a bit of a challenge. I told everyone at work I was going to wear the same 5 outfits each week for the next 4 weeks. At first I was kind of kidding but now I think I'm serious. A little strange, I know, but at this point I don't really care. Having said all that I want you to know I will be back to the normal picture posting soon! I'm not a fan of posts without pictures. A little sad if you ask me! So I will do my best to get one on here SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you're all having a blessed day!

I interrupt the regularly scheduled program of "Catching Up" for a special news bulletin. The appraisal and inspection have come back on my house. The inspection report had two items on it that needed to be fixed. My realtor is taking care of getting those done this weekend. The appraisal came back just fine so no worries there either. Closing is now scheduled for next Friday at 1:30! God is good!!! Oh, Praise HIM!
I will now return you to the regularly scheduled programming. Stay tuned...

I will do my best to use this week to get you all caught up on things that I have failed to blog about. I plan to do a post for each weekend and/or event that I have missed.
The end of last year my parents told Josh and I they are two storage units full of things and if we wanted to have yard sale we could have it. I wasn't sure I wanted to do it but Josh and I thought it would be silly to pass up that opportunity. At the time Josh was living in Lamar so my parents loaded up a box truck and hauled it all there. We were able to store it in the basement of his church. A few weeks later Josh got the call from Life Line in Little Rock and a few weeks after that he took the job. So Josh moves to Little Rock but all our yard sale stuff stays in Lamar. Not to mention in the mean time we also got engaged and thus adding more stress. The yard sale became a black cloud hanging over us. We decided we just needed to pick a date and go with it. We picked July 12th...one of the hottest days of the summer...but we got it done and God blessed us! Josh worked SOOOOOO hard, with the help of his mom and grandmother. I did my part too but was unable to help until Saturday.
EARLY Saturday morning! Josh sporting his sunscreen!
13 round tables FULL of things. We had stuff everywhere.
Me and Holly
