This is a picture of our FIRST HOME..... Hope you will come visit!

We are down to one week..... lets just say we are counting down and very excited. Lance and I are in the midst of the last minute details and "duties" that have been assigned. The excitement is building and we are very ready. Lance is more ready to be at the reception enjoying the "party" and on his honeymoon. I am more ready to celebrate and finally be married to Lance!

The wedding is pretty much all set and the last minute details are being worked out. Lance is only working Monday through Wednesday and I unfortunately am working through Thursday. But it will definitely make time fly by..... I will blink and Friday will be here before I know it. The house is coming along. Lance's parents came up on Friday and helped unpack, hang things and break down all the boxes we had unpacked so far. I will post pictures once things are more put together. We are close to being ready for overnight guest if we have any takers.

I will try to post more information later this week...... Happy count down everyone!

God's Divine Intervention & Sense Of Humor

Well..... things are moving right along with the wedding and Lance and I are in count down mode. Ok so here is the update from recent events:
Lance and I decided to rent a house for a year, found a great house in Keller and filled out the application on Thursday (3 weeks ago). Lance faxed in the application on Friday and the lady at the rental office called to tell him she would process the application on Monday. Great we thought we will have the keys towards the end of October and can start moving things in..... Well God decided to show us his sense of humor! On Saturday morning Lance and I both went to work (yes we ironically had to work the same weekend). Wes (Lance's roommate) called Lance at work at about 10:30a stating he had a house come across his desk- brand new with almost all the things Katharine wanted in a house. The builder is trying to get it off their inventory QUICK so check it out and get back to him ASAP. Lance reviewed the information Wes had sent him and thought it looked like a possibility.... remember we currently had an application in on a rental house. Well Lance tried to call me about 6 times but I had left my cell phone at home that day and he does not know my work number nor would he have caught me at my desk it was a VERY busy Saturday. Anyway I called him back after work and he kept asking how soon can you get to my house I have something I need to show you......

I made it to Grapevine very quickly thinking something was wrong with Lance or Hitch. Lance told me about the house we went over and looked at it even though Lance had already met the builder over there and looked at to see if it was anything we should consider farther. I LOVED THE HOUSE!!!! We would have plenty of space and it truly had everything but one item that I had asked Wes to look for in a house for us. Well Lance and I called my parents to come up and look at it and we sent pictures and information to his parents (they could not come because his Dad was 1-2 days post knee surgery). Everybody agreed that this was too good of a deal to pass up and that the house was perfect for Lance and I so..... We returned to the builder's office on Sunday and signed a purchase agreement. Two weeks after seeing the house for the first time (this past Tuesday October 30) we closed on our very first home.

So if you missed the humor or intervention here it is in a nutshell.... I had been a little stressed out trying to get all the wedding plans done and find a house that Lance and I could agree on, in an area we like, etc- we finally decided to submit to God's desire and rent a house and low and behold once we did that and felt better he showed us his funny side and gave us the house we had been looking for all along with a deal we could not pass up!

Lance and I are now home owners and in the process of trying to get moved in little by little so it will be ready for us when we get married. Or bachelor and bachelorette parties were in Austin on the same weekend but our friends did a great job and we never ran into each other. We have had a wonderful time at all of our showers. We only have two left before we get married. Things are running pretty smoothly with wedding plans and getting appliances delivered to the house. Overall things are great and Lance and I are truly BLESSED (to say the least)!!!
