We are on the hunt...

For a house that is!! Mr. Man and myself have been on the hunt for about a month now for the perfect starter home for the two of us. Let me tell you how excited I was to begin this process, that is until we are now knee deep in decisions and talking about more money than I could have ever imagined!! My goodness, you want to put how many zeroes into that space?? So far it has been an eye opening experience and it has been wonderful to look at different potential homes and thinking about the life we will start together, it is all just too much sometimes!! It is frustrating and rewarding and luckily today we are going to look at a place for the second time. Everyone cross your fingers for us! It is rather difficult to come to reality and realize that the house you are actually able to afford is not going to look a whole lot like the house in the movie Father of the Bride...sad sad!!

Where am I??

Holy cow it has been a crazy whirlwind of 3 weeks at my house. Last minute I was asked by my company to depart Denver for in 3 days time to Houston, come home for the weekend, and depart once more on Monday night for another 4 day stint. Wowza!! If any of you know me personally you know that I am absoloutely 100% TERRIFIED to fly. I have no idea why, it is one of those unexplainable fears. Anywho, not too exciting to fly for me especially when I may or may not break down in a massive panic attack in front of 6 co-workers. To me that just equals total awesomeness! Where do I sign up. Enough of the boring details, I end up working 15-18 hour days while I am in Houston and completely exhausted by the time I get home. Poor Mr. Man was landing in Oklahoma City, while I was taking off from Houston so I didn't get to see him :( Cue the violin music please, hehe. Anyway, week 2 was about the same work wise, we kicked some serious bootahy and boarded the plane back home late late Thursday night. I swear to you the only thing that got me back on that plane and through the rest of last week was knowing that Colorado Rockies Opening Day was on Friday!!!! Lucky for me, my office offers 1/2 day Friday's so I took full advantage of that and happily skipped down to Coors Field!! It was an amazing day!! Great weather, great friends, and I may or may not have indulged in a hot dog and embarassingly enough an ice cream cone too!! WHAT!?? I had a rough two weeks!:) Regardless, I am back with a blogging vengence, so get excited for a summer full of fun activities, travel, and excitement. Hope you are all well!
