Signed, Sealed, Delivered...

... and Closed!  


*Please ignore the fact that my head looks the size of a largish cantaloupe and that Evs' man-paw is gripping my shoulder as if I were a long-lost fraternity beer pong buddy.  I keep telling him "Wife = Waist" but somehow we continue to take photographs in this "great to see you, old chap!" fashion.  

On July 27th, I wrote this post.  If my memory serves me correctly (and it does, because, uh, I just reread my own words, duh), I proclaimed that the big girl closets and the master bath where dual/simultaneous-teeth-brushing is possible and the Tex-Mexy Sun Faces would be "ours in a few short weeks."  

It's October 5th.  

Math is not my strong suit (hence, law school), but I'm pretty sure that's a shitton (technical term) longer than a few short weeks.  

Meh.  ToMAYto, ToMAHto.  

Now is not the time to rehash The Dramz.  

Now is a time for wine that costs more than $12.00 a pop and a serial killer movie on Netflix (Mr. Brooks, if you must know) (what? we all have our vices, yo) and a spicy black bean soup and some Hatch chile corn pudding.  

We'll save the Big Rehash for another day.  

Until then... a little tidbit of Crazytown:


That?  Would be a can of refried beans.  

And that?  Would be our "Thanks for Buying Our House" Gift. 

Welcome Home.

  4. I love you both and I can't wait to be the possible first house guest. So excited for you! I love Evs and his man paw. Just sad we missed him last weekend. Hudson would love to come up in a few weeks and feast on cookies with Evs and chase the Boom around.

  16. Not just a can of beans....oh no. Nuthin says Texas (straight from Arizona) like Traditional Rosarita's frijoles refritos con Fiber...........constipation will never be the same. There's more than a back story here; believe me amigos!

  20. Shut the front door! They gave you a can of refried beans? I'm super excited about the house, but what??????? The least they could have done was an acessory sized sun-face trivet!

  22. I'm with TUWABVB. Are the beans the gift? Or, the book? Either way, congratulations! It was kind of them to include the extra fiber though...

    LOLing at wife = waist! Too true!

  23. Hooray! Now you'll enter into the "What in the hell were they thinking?!" portion of home ownership. We've owned our house for about 6 months and we're constantly shouting that to each other.

  24. WOOOOOo! Felicitaciones! So glad it's over (except for the fun part - and i see you are well-equipped for that, with the Domino book!). It took 5 months from our first offer to close on our house. I know from house buying shenanigans, and I am glad yours are over. SALUD!
