I'm Back!!

It's been a looooooong time since I last posted. Why? Life has been C-R-A-Z-Y!! Let's see...where to begin.
At the end of November I started a new job. And I LOVE it! Its great. My hours are cut back and it is not so corporate as my last job.. I am now working in property management at ING and I think I have found my place in the work world! Management (ie. bossing people around) + Leah = HAPPY!
Then Dylan started Finals (which I am happy to say he did splendidly on - good job honey!) and meanwhile we were in the process of buying a HOUSE! That's right folks, we are now proud houseowners! Here she is, our humble abode at 4528-35 Ave:

I know it doesn't look like much, but this is our first house and we are in-LOVE! I mean I have my own doorbell! And that my friends is the most exciting thing to happen since press-n-seal Ziploc containers. Other reasons I love my new house:
1. My previously mentioned doorbell
2. My very own mailbox
3. A front door
4. A backyard
5. Two levels so that when I cook my bedroom doesn't smell like dinner
6. 300 sq ft more than our condo
7. Dylan and I own it TOGETHER
8. A driveway
9. A room dubbed "the nursery" (no that is not a hint about anything - just something to look forward to)
10. All of the sweet memories that we are going to make here at 4528.

I will share some interior pics later but right now we are in the process of doing some renovations so I will wait to 'reveal' the final product.

A couple weeks after the house Christmas hit and we were NOT READY! We were so busy with moving that I didn't really get the chance to prepare for Christmas. But I got an awesome Christmas tree on clearance after Christmas so to make up for this year, I am going to have to set up extra early next year. I can just hear Dylan cringing!

Much more to update on but alas, I have to run - picture editing is calling! Talk to you tomorrow.....yes I AM going to update this EVERYDAY. Or at least every other.... :)
