Well, its official...Spencer and I bought our first house!
We began looking several months ago, and looked and looked and looked. We found a couple houses we liked here and there, but unfortunately, they would already be under contract, or the seller would not negotiate per our liking. With that said, about a month ago, we came across a cute house that was in the neighborhood we wanted (great schools and great location). We both really liked the lay-out, it had a decent kitchen, and a fairly good curb appeal. So needless to say, after some negotiating...the house is now OURS :) We closed last week....and have already started on the renovations (it needs SOOO MANY). As of now, we have just begun painting the den and kitchen, and we have started a little on the outside. We are getting new floors in both of these rooms immediately, so we wanted to paint before the instillation. I have started taking before pictures, so as we go through the process, I will post more pics!
To all who have sent warm wishes our way...thank you so very much! Spencer and I are very excited and cant wait to make our house a home :)

Spencer and I have been very busy traveling this summer. A couple days after I got out of work for the summer, we flew to South Padre to fish and play on the beach with his mom and step-dad! It was such a nice get-a-way, and the sun and beach were amazing. Thank you Ken and Terri :)
Here is a sample of the fun night at Sambuca. There were too many pics to choose from...so here are a few!!
