Living: Morning Excitement

Hello, my dear readers! There was lots of excitement in my household this morning.

Some of the excitement was due to this little guy*. He hopped onto our balcony and helped himself to an open bag of birdseed. This, of course, caused my cats to go BERSERK! There was tail switching, growling and jumping to and fro which roughly translates to "OMG squirrel! Can I eat it? Can I, can I can? Please mom? Can I eat it?" The cats stayed inside and eventually the squirrel went on its way.

On a side note, doesn't he look quite dapper standing up like that?**

As exciting as the squirrel was, my husband and I were all abuzz for a very different reason. We bought a house! Last night we signed the papers to get it under contract and we will close in a month. We are first-time home buyers and we just made it under the wire for the $8,000 tax credit (thanks Obama!). In case any of you noticed my recent posts have been more fluff than substance (ooh, look shiny objects from Etsy!) it is because we have spent a lot of our recent free time going to showings and dealing with realtors, sellers, lenders, etc which doesn't leave much time for crafting and DIY-ing. Luckily for you guys, a new home means new projects to whip up and share with you guys. I can't wait for you to see it!

In the mean time, I grabbed these 2 photos from the listing site to give you a sneak peek. The image quality is terrible, but I promise to get better shots for you guys as soon as we sign on the dotted line.

I think our little house is just so cute! For those of you keeping track, it's the very same house that had us over the moon when we first started looking. We saw plenty of houses to be prudent, but when you know, you just know. It's small enough to be a starter house, but it has enough 'niceness' to make 2 architects happy. It has a decent sized yard and a wired shed in the backyard. My favorite feature is the hardwoods in all the public areas. I'm sure all you pet owners know how hard it is to keep carpet clean with fur everywhere!
That's all for now!

*Please excuse the image quality. Early morning + fast moving animals + window screen = worst photo ever.
**Of course I didn't photoshop that. He made a quick costume change.
