So, Life lately.. What have we been up to?
Well, today was a big day for 2 reasons...
1) I finally passed my G license test. YES, finally. Canada has graduated licensing and I've been redoing my G2 road test every 5 years so as to not lose my license. I went once for the G road test and failed horribly.. the tester actually had me in tears. Now, that was 4 years ago and I've changed a lot since then.. I'm still a nervous driver, don't drive very often and HATE to drive.. but I was determined to get this done. For one, my insurance would lower dramatically (which I am definitely looking forward to now) and two, now that I have passed, I will not have to take another road test until I am considered old age. You have no idea how happy I am to have passed - one less worry that I have to have. Road tests always made me nervous and anxious, which would definitely result in a fail, but I DID IT!
2) We put an offer in on the house we saw last week. At first, we decided against moving forward with a house purchase right now and decided to work on our credit and build up more of a downpayment. However, neither one of us could forget that house. It is perfect for us. Beautiful hardwood floors, beautiful back deck with large fenced in yard, excellent kitchen, 3 bedrooms, garage, decent neighborhood. It was PERFECT! After some recalculating and realizing that no matter our savings will be gone, we decided to take the plunge. The house is over budget, so there is a definite possibility that we won't get it -- but just to have put an offer in is amazing! I'm hopeful, but being realistic -- it may be the perfect house, but not the perfect price. We will have to wait and see..
Also, I came home to see our photographer from our post wedding shoot has posted 2 more photos, so I'll share them here! I really can't wait to see the rest!
