A break from the chaos...


I have finally found a moment to sit down a write a few notes about the last few days. Since I last wrote things have continued to go quickly with the house. By the end of today we will have all of the flooring complete, running water, and by Monday we will be ready for a final inspections AND A MOVE IN!!! : ) Needless to say we are VERY excited. I will post pictures once we get moved in with furniture and ALL!!

As for the break from the chaos Jason left with Blaine on Tuesday and joined his family in Hatteras, NC for a Johnson family vacation. Of Course I had to work (and go to graduate school) so I stayed behind until after work on Wednesday and you better believe that I hopped in my car at 3:30 and rushed to get to my baby...and my husband of course!! It has been a beautiful few days here (as I sit in the living room of the house and overlook the water and the marina). Yesterday was my first day here, and we took the ferry over to Ocracoke Island and strolled the streets, stopped in for a couple of beers at Smacnallys (one of my fav. places), and snuck in some ice cream before we got back on the ferry and headed home. We ended the day with a game of Guesstures with everyone and I must say it was HILARIOUS, and I am NOT really good at it...but it was really fun. Today we have just relaxed up until now...Jason went out fishing this morning with Larry and his grandaddy and when he gets back we are heading to the beach for a bit with Blaine. We plan to come home pretty early tomorrow to check on the house and get ready for the week ahead. Here are a couple of pictures of us enjoying this nice getaway before the chaos of moving in...

A video of Blaine's first Hatteras trip. His first beach trip was to Pawley's Island, but this one was a little more fun for him because he is moving around pretty well!! : )
