200th Post - We're Movin' On Up!

Well, I’ve reached new heights on my little blog. I am now up to my 200th post. It’s a small step for blogs but a pretty big step for my little blog. Considering that I had only just started reading blogs last year, and I didn’t really put a lot of thought into my decision to start a blog, and I didn’t even know if I’d enjoy blogging or not, I’d say things have gone pretty well. I only hope that they continue to get even better in the future.

I thought for a while about what I would write for this post…Should it be just a regular everyday post? Should I do something special for it? Finally I decided that since this is a “milestone” post, it would be the perfect time for me to talk about future milestones on the blog and the milestones going on in my life.

The Blog. - First , the blog. Not only is this the 200th post, but in about 2 months, I’ll be celebrating the one year anniversary of my first post, which is very exciting for me…I can’t believe it’s been almost a year! I’m already beginning to think about how I will celebrate for the occasion, and that will, of course, include a big anniversary post. Additionally I’ve been thinking of different things I can do to revamp and make the blog better, so I’ve been coming up with some ideas to restructure, organize, and try to make it more focused and cohesive (for lack of a better word). I’m also planning to get a *new* design/template for the website. I’ve been looking at a lot of blog designs to try to get a good idea of what I’m looking for, and before the year is out, I hope to have a total makeover for the site. And I have a few ideas for some future projects that I think everyone will like.

Movin’ On Up (literally) – Next, an even greater milestone, we are getting ready to move in to our first house. Since we’ve been married, we’ve lived in an apartment and a rented house, but now we are getting ready to actually own our own home. My mother started “scouting out” good deals a couple of months ago, as we will be moving back to the area where I am from and it’s difficult for us to look around since we live 5 hours away. She found a good deal on an older home (built in the 60s/70s). I say it’s a good deal because all of the other homes in the same price range as this one were only about half the size. Anyway, the deal has been closed, and right now my mom and stepdad are overseeing some renovations being done on the house. Eventually we’d like to have something new altogether, but we needed to get something that would have low payments, since we have student loans and other debts to deal with, not to mention the cost of a “future” new baby in year or two.

So we’re very excited about moving back to the area and about having a place to call home when we get there. And we’re semi-excited about getting new jobs, but that’s a topic for another day.
So for both the blog and the home front, things are looking up!
