Lloyds are in the OP!

(OP = Overland Park)

Yesterday was our big day - we closed on our new house!

The kids and I left around noon and the closing was at 3pm.
We got to KC a bit early - like, an hour early.
So, I called Seth and he met us at a McD's close to the closing place for a snack.

We hung out there until it was time to sign our signatures five thousand times.

When we got there, our realtor was already waiting for us.
blah, blah, blah...sign, sign, sign, write a big fat check...badaboom, we own our house!
That was done at 4pm.

Then on to the best part of the day!!!
(Breck kept saying "this is the best day ever!" by the way.)

I'll let you see for yourself:

and look, my cookie sheet fits!

both kids already love the fireplaces...

they're great for doing yoga:

or just having a seat:

and I must mention that the seller left the house in immaculate order! She cleaned eve-ry-thing. Everything. The top of the mantles had NO dust and they're both taller than me! All the fixtures had been shined, carpets vacuumed, floors swept, etc etc etc. She even left us full rolls of tp in the bathrooms! And the part that was most helpful was that she left notes for anything that would be better understood with a little explaination. She even went so far as to map out and lable all the plants in the landscape!!!
She left us a personal note, too, which I thought was awfully sweet.

Hopefully in the next week or two I'll have some before and afters - there's not too much we'll be changing - peeling some wallpaper and painting a room or two. Oh, and some landscaping fixes, too.

...stayed tuned! ;)


  1. Looks great! How fun to move into a new spacious place:)

  2. How sweet of her to leave you little notes about the house!! That was very thoughtful!

  3. So exciting! I love your tour and the pictures on the fire place. It will be fun to see your children grow and not be able to fit in those places so well!


  4. The kids were cracking me up going up and down the steps. Rowan was doing exactly like Breck. So cute!! The house looks so spacious. I know you are so excited. Can't wait to see more pics!!

  5. How exciting! I hope the transition goes well to the new house. Have fun unpacking and organizing! :)


Thanks for taking time to leave a comment!
