More than a little excited!

Have I told you about my house?

I'm down to 10 days now.

Yeah, I know. I'm sorry, it's pretty much all I can think of these days. In case you couldn't tell, I'm ridiculously excited about it.

I'm mostly packed. Arrangements for connection/disconnection of utilities all made. Move week plans sorted out. Now I'm just playing the waiting game, more or less.

I've been trying to distract myself with awesome things on the internet, but inevitably get sucked into the pinterest black-hole which usually ends up with me daydreaming about how I'll decorate my new house. Thanks to pinterest, my To Do List is a long one (and hopefully a fun one!).  Here are some must-do's once I get settled into my place:
  1. Scrabble Magnet Board. I'm going to have more walls to cover, and I already have very little to hang. I think something like this will make for perfect wall-art in the foyer or maybe at the bottom of the stairs. Also, I love Scrabble.
  2. First house ornament. Of course this must be done.
  3. Dream up/plan next year's garden
  4. Make this jewellery holder
  5. Wall Art for a bedroom
And then there's a new blog I've been following for awhile. Its hilarious and sometimes heart-warming, but mostly hilarious - Stuff Christians Like. And before you roll you eyes, I need you to go read a few of Jon Acuff's entries. For anyone who has grown-up in the church, you'll see what I mean. Acuff gets it - he gets what we're doing right, but mostly wrong in church and he calls it out, in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way. It's about time!
(Check out his blog, while you're visiting his site - he'll often post other random awesome stuff there, like this video.)
