It's Finally Ours!!!

Last Friday, Adam and I FINALLY closed on our house!!! We were sooo excited because it has definitely been a long time coming!!! Our closing couldn't have come at a more perfect time since my parents had purchased us a refrigerator and it had to be picked up from Sears that Saturday. So Saturday morning we got up pretty early (for a Saturday) and made it to Sears around 9:15 only to find out that it didn't open to Sears. We didn't let that stop us though!! We decided to head on over to WalMart to pick up some cleaning supplies. We made it back to Sears just as it was opening and got our fridge loaded up. Then Adam and I and my mom, dad, and Mike headed to Jackson for an afternoon of cleaning.
Once we got to the house, mom and I headed to the kitchen to start scrubbing the cabinets and counters while the guys struggled to get the fridge unloaded. Fortunately, we have some fabulous neighbors who came over and gave the guys a hand. I don't think they could have done it without their help!!!
While there is still a lot of cleaning and touchups to be done, we are slowly making progress. Adam's mom and I went to clean more on Wednesday and Adam started repainting the stairs and baseboards on Thursday.
Sunday after we closed, Adam and I hit up Ashley Furniture for their Memorial Day sale so we could order our furniture. I LOVE all the stuff we ordered and can't wait for it to come in!! We spent a LOT of money on it...but it will totally be worth it once we are settled in and starting our new life together!! :) We also went to Sears to order a washing machine, dryer, and microwave. We are going this weekend to pick them up and then all the guys (Adam, my dad, and his dad) are going to spend Saturday installing everything! I'm excited because I'll finally be able to wash all our new linens!
We have definitely had a busy week...and I am sure next week will be even busier. I am still working on wedding stuff but hope to have most of it finished by next week so I can just relax the week before the wedding!
