Packing, Cleaning, Closing.......Moving!!!! and more wins.

What a whirlwind! After waiting and waiting for all of this house stuff to work itself out, we finally got word that our buyers received their commitment letter from the bank, and have gotten a mortgage , yay! We still do not have the closing finalized, (darn holiday weekend), but our tentative closing is set for this coming Friday. Which means our last night sleeping in the townhouse is this coming Tuesday!! Wednesday we have the movers coming for the furniture and boxes, Thursday we are cleaning and getting any last minute decor (including the curtains), and Friday is the closing! Woo hooooooooooooooooo. We will then officially be homeless until the closing on our new place, which is still not set. In the interim, we are staying at my mom's house and putting everything into storage with our movers.

I am sooo excited,I am bursting at the seams. I cannot believe my dream house is now becoming a reality. It is a surreal time for sure. I will share photos when we have the closing set, and it is a done deal. I do not want to jinx it.

June is going to be a super busy month. I have my baby shower, a friend's baby shower, a cousin's wedding shower, my mom's retirement party, Father's Day, and two baby classes including Breast feeding and Child care. Also, I want to set up at least one pregnancy photo shoot, with my big mama tummy!!!

Thankfully, we will have the pool to cool off, the way the heat has already set in, I am thinking we are going to have one HOT summer!!!

 As for May and wins, I am super super grateful for all of the mommy blog wins, and new mommy products that I will get to review. I have a few on the way to my Mom's house now, as well as a couple that I recently received.

 From the fabulous blog at Blisstree, I won a cute brown Chicobag recycled carry bag and coupons for two free cartons of Silk Pure Almond Milk. YUM! I drink Soy milk, but I am so excited to try Almond milk, I have heard such great things about the silkiness, flavor and taste. I will let you know how it tastes after my next visit to the grocery.

From Facebook, I won some delicious, rich coffee from for being a fan! I love all things Vampire, and their site has wine, coffee, chocolate and original products for sale. I had no idea how great the Brazil Ipanema Dulce coffee would be. I am a bit of a coffee snob, and since I am only drinking one cup of coffee a day during my pregnancy, I am pretty picky! Delish! I highly recommend Vampire coffee, and the packaging is cute too!! 

 Also from Facebook, on May 24th  on the Conair Facebook page, I won am amazing Conair straightener. It is the : Infiniti Nano Silver by Conair High Temperature Ionic Steam Straightener! And, if that sounds fancy, that is because it is! It is super fancy and beats the pants off of my mini straightener that I have been using for my bangs.  I packed it up with my hair items for the move, but I will blog photos the next time I use it.  YAY!!

I have more to blog about, but am waiting until I can take photos!! 

Now it is off to pack more, and have dinner! Have a fabulous holiday weekend
