The First One!!!

HI!! I am so excited to have a blog for just me and Adam...I just don't know where to begin!! I see a lot of people's blogs and think that it is a wonderful way to keep up with friends and family...not to mention cute!

For those of you who don't know, Adam and I are getting married on June 19th!! We are thrilled and are counting down the days! We are getting married at my church (Bartlett UMC) and the reception will be at Lichterman Nature Center. It is so beautiful there!!

We recently bought a house in Jackson, TN. We don't have a closing date set yet but once we do, the cleaning will begin!!! I am so ready to start working on the house, turning it into a home. We need to do a lot of yard work and general cleaning inside, but for the most part, it is in great condition! It is a 2 story house in a small, quiet subdivision...just perfect for us.

A little about the house:
***3 bedroom PLUS a playroom over the garage
***2 1/2 bathrooms
***Brand new stove and dishwasher!!!
***HUGE walk in closet in master's bedroom (and walk in closets in the other bedrooms)
***Beautiful balcony upstairs that overlooks the living room downstairs
***LOVE the cabinets throughout the house (they are dark wood) and the countertops

Once we are married, Adam will keep his job at Lexington High School and I will hopefully get a job in Henderson County, also. Although it will be very different from teaching in Shelby County, I am getting more and more excited each day. I am ready to have my very own classroom that I can decorate the way I want to and not have to share classes with multiple teachers throughout the year like I did this year. The theme for my room is going to be "Harrington's Happy Campers!!" I even have a tent, sleeping bags, and camp chairs for the kids to sit in and read and do their Reading Center work. I can't wait!!
I will also have to get used to the idea of being a coach's wife! I am actually ready for the challenge :) I'm planning on being one of those dorky coach's wives who invites the players over the house for cookouts and team bonding time! haha!!!

Well I think that is enough for my first post...especially since I will probably be the only one who looks at it :D However, I am excited about being able to go back and look at events in our lives and see how much fun we had!!
