How many boxes does it take to pack up a 500 square foot apartment?

So far, about 23. But we're not finished yet. Confused?

I've got to admit something... I've been keeping a little secret for the past few weeks.

And it's been killing me.

My Business Man and I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!

And we are so excited.

It's a side-hall colonial, built in 1918, located in a historic part of town. Just a 5-minute walk from the park and access to the running trail!

With the help of my dad, who is coming out Monday, we will be doing some work on it before we move in next weekend. Paint, hardwood floors, anything else that strikes our fancy. (Or that absolutely needs to be fixed... haha.)

The thing I am looking forward to most:

But we will have to ditch the wallpaper.

It is so big! With lots of countertops and cabinets. And has lots of natural light! 

And there's a breakfast nook in the room next door. A breakfast nook!

We also have a pretty awesome patio area. Can't wait to have some summer cook-outs!

So... life has been crazy. Trying to pack up everything we own, get the banking all in order, figure out paint colors, coordinate schedules. All while finishing up the last few weeks of school and getting ready for a vacation. Yikes! But it'll all be worth it. 

I was a little sad to pack up all my cookbooks. But they will have their own special spot at our new place, actually in the kitchen!

I can't wait to share all the excitement along the way! More pictures to come, I promise.

One of the primary reasons why granite top is one of the most popular choices for a kitchen countertops is its durability. The stone itself has a very hard and durable composition
