My new best friend

After several hours of sweat and frustration while trying to replace the heating elements of our water heaters, a family friend recommended trying a tool designed specifically for the heating element. Channel locks worked for 3 of the 4 elements but the 4th was too stubborn. I prayed that God would give me the strength to remove the element, but instead God gave me an $8 tool.
We've now spent 10 nights in the new home, and we are very thankful for hot water. We'll continue to post about the process, the move, and updates on the new home for the next few weeks.

The keys to our new home!

Yep, those keys unlock the door to our new home. We have been bursting at the seams keeping this under wraps, and now we are happy to share it with everyone. We have been searching for and praying about a home for months, but just couldn't find "the one." Then this beauty came along.
Actually, we stumbled across it about 6 months ago but the timing was not right. Even then, we weren't impressed by the photos in the listing and almost passed it up. I'm so glad I made Cary drive out to see it, because we both really liked it. We are so excited to make it our own.

It has been a long process with tons of excitement, dozens of questions, and quite a bit of stress, but in the end, God blessed us with a house. We are looking forward to turning it into our home.

Stay tuned for some more posts about the home buying process.

Tough Loss!

What a tough weekend for the Bulldog Nation! Cary and I traveled to Atlanta for the UGA/Boise State game this past Saturday. We spent the entire day tailgating with friends outside the Georgia Dome (notice the sunburn below). Even though it was a rough game, we enjoyed spending time with friends and fellow fans.

Hopefully, next week will go better against our SEC opponent, South Carolina. See ya in Athens!
