Seriously huge news on the homefront!

Hello friends! It's been a while since I've been able to update. My new job has kept me super busy and I feel like a better and more efficient worker than I have ever been. It's crazy. I never realized.... scratch that..... I realized that I was a bit of a slacker at my last office, but here I'm more motivated and actually enjoy what I do and ALL the people in my office instead of 4 or 5 select few from my last place. I'm constantly on the run, and then when I get home all I want to do is play with Carter. He is really growing up so fast right before our eyes.
I've been crazzzzy busy lately. Tuesday was Paisley's 2nd birthday (I KNOW RIGHT!! I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE'S 2!!!!!) But, this weekend is her actual party. My sister asked me to make her cake again this year. I plan on doing it up a little more fancy than I did last year with her number shaped cake for the guests and Barbie cake for her.

Don't get me wrong, I stinkin' love last year's 2 cakes. But I want to do something a little more for her. And, I've taken it upon myself to make her birthday outfit as well. I have found some really great ideas on other blogs and I gotta say that she is going to be the cutest thing once I get done!! I'll post pictures after the party b/c I don't want to ruin the surprise.

Ok, and for the news here.... WE ARE BUYING A HOUSE!! We have found the most beautiful 2-story home in Burlington that we just love. It's in the Elon area in a neighborhood that Phillip esteemed to be as he grew up. It's 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath, with a 2 car garage, wrap-around porch (you guys know I'm a sucker for a porch!!!!), a great backporch, and a great backyard. The house will DEFINITELY need some updating though. It's going to be a very very very loooong and expensive process to get everything out of the 1980's time period, but I'm so pumped about doing it! We are planning to have Carter's 1st birthday at the house and hopefully most of you readers will be able to see it when you come to the party. I can't wait to send you more pictures and keep you updated on everything! Check back in on us soon!
