We talked to the real estate agent last night and we finally have an executed contract! The house is ours! We had the inspector go yesterday morning and hopefully our lender will schedule the appraisal in the next few days. The inspection went great! The house is in great condition! Hopefully they can hurry up and get packed and get out of my house so we can close soon! I know that was a lot of exclamation points, but I'm super excited!!!!!!

We also booked a trip to Vegas last night for Bobby's 30th birthday over Halloween weekend! We've never been so we are really excited about that, too. 

Have you ever been to Vegas? We need tips and/or suggestions.

By the way, I decided to stay at my job. Since we aren't moving so far away anymore, I figured there was no point in leaving. I was really nervous to tell my boss  that I could stay and basically beg for my job back, but they were really excited and glad to have me stay. 

Tomorrow I'm taking a half day from work and we are heading to Bobby's home town. It's been almost a year since we've been back. We don't go often because most of his family has moved away and now his grandpa is the only person who lives down there. But we are going for a visit...should be interesting :)

How exciting! Also, Vegas is my absolute favorite. Last time I was there, my friend won $2500 on a $1 triple diamond slot machine at the palms--so I would totally recommend that!
