Yup, today we hit the double digits until the wedding!!! It's hard to believe that we've been engaged for 15 months and in 3 months, we'll be married! YAY!

Nothing new to report on my end... just counting days =)

So, I have some BIG news...

Yup, we did it! Seriously!
We are proud homeowners of the south Salem beauty pictured below...
It all started almost 6 months ago when we began weighing our options of where we would like to start our lives after we get married -- Bend, Portland, or Salem. After months of looking at houses, searching for jobs, and hopes going up and down, we finally decided that Salem was the best fit for us at this point in our lives.

And we lucked out when we found this house... it might have been on the higher end of our budget, but it's everything and more than we ever hoped for! The papers have been signed and the keys are going to be in Sam's hands tomorrow and all that means that I will have one happy fiance! (sidenote: Sam has been driving 2.5 hours a day commuting to and from work for at least a year and a half and now he has a home just 20 minutes away from work that he can go to, yay!)

As for me, I'll be staying in Bend for another 3.5 months while I plan for our wedding and get all those final details together. Sam and I are both hoping for the next few months to just fly by because we are beyond ready to be married!

If you are ever in Salem, let us know. We'd love to have you over! =)
