1) he is a smart ass. and I loved that. It's hard to come by people out here that aren't sweet as pumpkin pie 24/7 (at least to your face)
2) HE suggested seeing 15-20 houses before even thinkin' about an offer. Which is smart. He even said I am crazy and need to tone it dowwwwnn. (its cool, I get it)
3) the builder will paint the place blue if we really want to (and maybe I bat my eyelashes a little come offer time)
4) if I get my gosh damn license already I can start selling houses for him. (unfortunately California isn't a recipricol state and therefore I have to take my realtor exam again...poop)
So the house was awesome and I wanted to pitch a tent. Here are just a couple of photos I took that are different from the ones I posted last time.
So there is that. Just a small little updatearooni. I promise to show you pictures of all houses I feel this passionate about. Because I love you guys, and I think house hunting is fun.
Now for the hobby lobby shopping extraordinair...
Have you been to this place? Hopefully you have. But if you're reading from back home, you haven't, and I feel bad for you. First off, I am the kind of person that hallmark LOVES. I start decorating and buying wayyy sooner than I really should for the holidays, so when I went window shopping the other day I literally died and went to heaven. (which was cool, cause their was no other way I'd rather go than amongst fab Christmas and fall decorations!)
But don't you worry your pretty little face there, cowboy, if you're still feeling summer and aren't yet ready for the fall train, I took some pictures of some DIE FOR decor too. (It made me want to move, like, tomorrow! 50 percent off coupon..HERE.I.COME!)
$11.00 burlap trees. I see these going all the way up the stairs twinkling lights. YES.
My thing with holiday decor is I have a TON. (I think when we packed up the garage coming out here we counted 6 boxes of fall/halloween and 7 boxes of Christmas.) thats A LOT. But the thing is, its all bright colored and sparkly and totally fun, but I totally wanna go for a more "adult' theme this year. But thats expensive. So Jakes rule for me was this: we will use what we have for this year, and he will come with me "day after" shopping so we can amp it up a bit and save a ton as well. Smart man ;)
Here is some general delicious decor. *Husband warning. I take no responsibility for any damage your wife does to your credit card this month:
GIGANTIC clock. I am not kidding this thing was probably 3x5 feet. LOVE!
So there you have it. The reason poor Jake will be actually "poor Jake" in the future. I love the hob lob, and its important I leave the wallet at home in all instances I will be within a mile of one.
