This day ROCKS

We met our Realtor this morning. We got a full price offer on our house and accepted.

YIPPEE!!!

So we set out to find new Tall Mom digs. 6 houses later and we found the one. I have always wanted a Yellow house. And we found a 2,800sqft blank pallet ready for us to upgrade as we wish. We put in a strong offer. Now we wait.

YIPPERS!!

I quickly logged on to Blogger to find that I WON the Raffle I have been telling you all about over at Katye's Blog HERE. I could not be more excited. The Pink Ipod I have been hoping for and the money goes to a good cause. And guess what?? You can still enter for round 2!! So go check it out, buy a Bondiband and enter Raffle #2.

YIPPEE SKIPPEE!!

This busy anf fun day continues as Muscle Man and I head to Mercer Island to pick uip my packet and drive the course. Then we are going out to dinner and to the Gonzaga Women's Basketball game. Friends and Family I have not seen in ages will be at the game. Good Times.

YIPPERS SKIPPERS!!!


I truly hope that you all are having an amazing weekend as well. And thank you to everyone for your well wishes on our house. Now we wait and hope that they accpet our offer and all goes well to close in the next month...


HAPPY SATURDAY!

Hi Mel, so great to meet you today at the race! I feel silly for not ever commenting before so I came across as a stalker. Hehe. How did it go?? Those hills were relentless but I managed to run 1:45:57 which I'm very happy with. I hope you and your friends had a great time and a yummy breakfast too!
