We're Baaack!

I can't say that I was ready for it - but here we are... back from the honeymoon.
Seriously - I could have handled another week on the cruise.
The wedding and honeymoon were both awesome and I will post pictures of both as soon as I get some time to upload them.
If you have never been to Alaska - GO! Seriously, it's incredible.
As you all know we bought a house and we closed escrow less than a week before our wedding. We were pretty bummed since it needed a lot of work done and so we thought we would end up living in a house with popcorn ceiling and gross carpet, walls, and well everything else for a little while till we could get it all fixed up - that was until we mentioned this to our family.
The next day there was a cleaning crew at our house (at least 20 of our family members)
We got everything cleaned, the popcorn ceilings removed, new toilet seats, walls washed, fans down, bathrooms cleaned... in less than half a day. It was awesome of them to all come out and help. Then while we were gone on our honeymoon, the drywall men came and repaired the walls and ceilings, the new carpet was installed and our parents went in and cleaned everything (again) and painted the WHOLE HOUSE!
They also cleaned the new bedding we got and set up our bed so we would have something to sleep on when we got back. She also got a few decorations to put around the room to make it a little less bare.
Totally unexpected and totally amazing of them. It felt great to come home to a house that was clean and actually felt like a home!
I love my house more and more and can't wait to get everything moved in!!
