The Cat’s Out of the Bag

Last month, I eluded to the fact that something big was going on for Cory and myself. I wasn’t ready to share it on the blog, or my own personal social media accounts for that matter.

And it’s one of the reasons I’ve been struggling for blog material, because much of my life has revolved around this thing for the past two-ish months.

Slowly, things have started coming together. Cory and I have had the opportunity to share our fun news with our closest family and friends the old fashioned way (i.e. in person or on the phone) which is something that mattered greatly to me. When big things happen, I don’t want my family and friends to find out from my blog.

But yesterday, we got the last call we were waiting for. All of our i’s have been dotted, and our t’s have been crossed.

We’re official! We’re building our first home and it’s scheduled to be finished in December!

      Thanks, Courtney!! Yeah, when we moved here and realized we could afford it (it’s much more affordable in Southern VA than Northern VA where I’m from!) we decided to go for it!

    Congrats! I work for a builder and my mom worked for Ryan Homes for 27 years. Let me know if you all have any questions!

    Congrats!!! My husband & I just moved into a new construction home, but it was the spec home so we didn’t get to pick out all the colors & whatnot (even though I DO like the colors!). We’ll be here for YEARS, but I hope one day we get to go through the building process so we can make everything “our own.” Can’t wait to follow along & see how it all goes!

    Oh my god you guys are such grown-ups!! I couldn’t be more happy for you two. You’re basically one of my favorite couples…uhm…ever.

    Congrats! I thought you were going to say that you were also bitten by the baby bug! I can’t wait to see you document this big part of your lives. I’ve always wanted to build my own home (well, have it built for me). Good luck!

    Hey just wanted to say congratulations as I wandered by here – all these people I know are growing up and doing such big things; I’m still stuck in vet school for one more year! But that’s so awesome! – Jessica (from Edison swim team :-) )
