A busy week approaches...

Happy November y'all!! :) I hope everyone had a delightfully spooky and fun Halloween - Mr. Cats and I are very into horror films, especially foreign ones (they just seem so much scarier!) and we watcheed a Spanish film called [REC]... they recently remade it to be called 'Quarantine' here in America... oh man, the end of this movie scared me SO MUCH! There are very few horror movies where I have to actually hide my eyes, but this was one of them. Oh man... good stuff! Then Bram Stoker's Dracula was on Chiller (ah, Gary Oldman), so we watched that, and a bunch of awesome short films. :) Good times!

But yeah, this week is going to be BUSY! You may remember me talking a while back about a house we are building... well it's DONE! Our final walkthrough is tomorrow, and the papers will be signed Friday! WOW!!! It's gone from this ...


... to THIS!!!!


We are SO excited to start moving in!!! Right now we are only a few miles away so packing and moving will be easier for us, and we will be completely moved in by Thanksgiving week, as some friends are coming to help. :) :) :) YAY!!!! We started this process way back in May and finally settled on a house plan and a lot, and it took about three straight months to build. It's a little one story ranch with three beds and two baths, a two car garage, lovely hardwood floors and granite countertops and a great screened in porch on our big backyard! So yeah, it's been going on for a while, and Friday it's ours!!!! :D

Friday is also the day I'm choosing a winner for my tasty fall chocolate giveaway, so head on over and check it out if you haven't already! Yum yum yum :)

Also, the job I am hoping to get will hopefully call me in for an interview this week. Fingers crossed, I could use it!

AND, I'm hoping to finish my scarf. I know, kind of trite compared to the other big stuff going on, but it's my very first scarf I've knitted EVER and I've been working on it on and off for about a month now. It's pink! And it will have tassels on the ends. :) I'll show you once I'm done!

And .... I got a new layout for this blog. I really like the colors and columns, I hope it looks good for you guys too!

So that's my big week, hope you guys have a fun and exciting one too! It's about 78 degrees here in North Carolina today so we're heading out to take a walk soon. :)

It's like, I bought a house; new job; moving in, ..oh, and I also made a scarf. LOl. But, being a designer (not public) myself, I know what it feels like to finally finish a project.
