Recent Happenings

So, I realize I've become pretty bad at keeping up with the blog. Apparently I can only handle so many things. Work, house buying, wedding planning, blogging, running (to prepare for the wedding), etc...

Micah and I are still in the process of buying a house. It's taking the bank a REALLY long time to get the water turned on, and until they do that, we can't get our inspections. So, we're looking at pushing our closing date back, which runs right into the wedding and honeymoon. Right now, we're just praying we have a house to come home to. Whether or not it's livable is an added bonus!!

As of today, we are 17 days away from the wedding! I know, it's crazy! It's hard for me to believe. Every day, I realize how close we're getting and it's so exciting. While I feel like it's forever away, I know it's right around the corner. 

I think that's everything right now. It seems like there's not much going on, yet we're crazy busy and I'm sure we will be for the next 17 days!

BTW... in 24 days, I'll be Mrs. McMahon!!!!


So, if you haven't heard the good news already, Micah and I are house owners!!! Well, not officially! We're waiting on inspections and such, but they've accepted our offer and we have a closing date! So, all fingers crossed, on March 4th we'll be home owners! We are SO excited! God is so good! I wish you could all see how it fell into place. It was all so amazing! 

I don't have any pictures yet, but as soon as I get them, I'll post some. Like I said before, it's a fixer-upper, so there will be LOTS of before and after pics!

We had an eventful weekend! We spent all Friday night putting together wedding invites. Once we were done, and I was headed to bed I came down with what I'm hoping isn't the flu! Although, I'm headed to the doctor this afternoon, so we'll find out. I feel horrible! I tried to go to work today, but didn't even make it a full day! I bet a third of our staff is out today with the same crud! Anyway, for those of you who feel the same way, I feel your pain! Those of you who don't, stay away!!!

So, it's been crazy in the Gilbert/McMahon lives lately! With only 40 days (seriously???) until the wedding, I am beginning to feel the stress that I hadn't yet felt. Things have been going smoothly, but we're getting down to the wire. I think we have plans every weekend from now until the wedding. We had our first shower this past weekend. It was given by my side of the family. It was super nice! I don't have any pictures yet, (cause my camera died, of course) but I will post them when I get them! Micah's parents came down for the shower, and they met my parents for the first time. All went well; we can finally breathe! ;) Micah's mom went with us to the shower, while him and his dad went to the shooting range! It just goes to show the difference between men and women. We like presents and they like guns!

We'll spend Valentine's weekend in Dallas for a shower on his side of the family, then we'll have one more for church and friends! I feel like we're already off to a good start! 

Nothing yet on the house! We're putting a bid on our third one. We keep saying "third one's the charm"...we'll see if it holds true! If not, we might be living month to month in an apartment until we find the "perfect" house! It's all good!!

I think that's about it for us. Just counting down the days. It's less than six weeks away! Hard to believe.......
