Ten Things Tuesday

  1. We got the house!!! I told myself I wouldn't get excited this time until I received the signed contract back.  Well, around 4:30 yesterday afternoon, my realtor e-mailed it to me so it's official!!  We close on May 27th!!!!  Future Home of the Walters' Family
  2. I took the day off of work yesterday just because I felt like I needed it.  It was so nice.  I went to Barnes & Noble, to see Amanda and her new baby and just relaxed.  I think everyone should do that every now and then. 
  3. When I put Landon's t-ball clothes on him to go to practice, it never fails that he will ask, "Do I look handsome in my baseball clothes?"  It's the cutest thing!  His love language is definitely words of affirmation.
  4. Speaking of love languages, that's the study we're doing in our new Sunday school class.  Mine is Gifts, which is really no surprise to me, but it kind of makes me feel superficial.  I guess you can't help what your love language is though, right?
  5. I was surprised to find out that Chris' is quality time.  Not that I don't think he enjoys that, it just surprised me.  I thought his would be touch.  Guess you don't necessarily know everything about someone after 11 years, huh?
  6. I think the potty training thing might be clicking with Nixon.  He got up from his nap the other day (well, he hadn't gone to sleep yet) and peed on his frog potty and didn't even ask us if he could go.  He just told Chris after he did it.  He still gets so excited!!
  7. Actually, he's so excited, everyday when I pick him up, those are the first words out of his mouth, "I peed on the pot today mommy!"
  8. I picked up my purse yesterday from the radio station.  I'm in love!!  Now, if Chris could just win me a pair of those diamond earrings they're giving away :)
  9. Chris was supposed to have his last baseball game yesterday.  It got cancelled for rain, even though it never actually rained here.  It was supposed to, but never came to our county.  The game's rescheduled for today.  Go Cardinals!!  They're Conference Champs already, but it'd be nice to go out undefeated!
  10. Did I mention we're closing on our house May 27th??  I'm so excited/nervous I can't stand it.  I guess we better get packing!!

Congrats on the house! It's so pretty and it is like a forver home! I know you are going to build many happy memories there :)

What is this love language business? How do I find out what my love language is? It'd be good to tell my next boyfriend upfront so I don't waste any more time with the wrong one again!

Congrats on the house! It is absolutely gorgeous. I love the dining room! It looks like you will have a lot of fun decorating it.
