It has been almost 2 weeks since I last posted on my ol’ bloggy!
Although no reason would be a good excuse, my excuse is that some exciting things are in the works at the Walker household!
Exciting things = busy-ness!
Exciting thing #1:
Phillip & are in the closing process of buying our first home!
Who would have known that buying a house consisted of a TON of waiting, and waiting, and hoping, and waiting?
Since the closing process is not done yet we’re still waiting!
But, our estimated closing date is the end of June. When we do close, happiness will rain!
We weren’t even looking for a house when we came across this one, we (I) just go so excited when I saw the pictures. I had Phillip call the bank and get pre-approved before I even saw the house in person!
I have an amazing hubby.
This is our baby!
Not ours yet, but hopefully soon!
That porch though.. I’m so excited to just sit out there with my sweet tea & hubster!
And future baby walker…
Baby Walker will not be coming into the world for another few years, but a girl can dream!
Another perk about the house, is that the owners are AWESOME!
They’r so nice, and are also a military family.
It’s so nice to be able to trust, and get to know the sellers, it just makes the stressful process, so much easier!
Oh & my blog will BLOW UP with DIY’s once we move in.
The best thing about moving off base is that we can do whatever the heck we want to our home.
No housing rules, no lawn requirements, nothin’!
Exciting thing #2:
As mentioned in my Dream Sheet post, it has always been a dream of mine to open a boutique!
So, one night I did some research, and found out that it was easier than I thought it would be.
Definitely am not saying that it is in any way easy.
(that was a tongue twister!)
But, what I discovered is that it is not hard to obtain the license or I.D.’s required to buy and sell retail.
Sooooo, I’m starting a BOUTIQUE!!
I’m so so so so so excited!
My week has been completely consumed with shopping on tons and tons of sites to decide what sort of retail I’m going to have at my store.
So far I know that I will have Women’s Clothing, Jewelry, Shoes, and Makeup Products (Such as bare minerals, Too Faced, Urban Decay, and Mac).
I’v been searching long and far to try and find a reasonably priced Maternity Clothes wholesaler for all my mommies on base, but it’s tough!
Also, I hope to eventually carry children’s clothes, that’s another thing that has been time consuming this week, SEARCHING.
As of right now, my store will be mainly on facebook, and Etsy.
When we move into our new home, the boutique will be home based, with a room dedicated to it (:
I’m ordering my first batch of items next week, so hopefully I’ll be up and running online in about a month!
I’m so excited & can’t wait to what my store has ‘in store’ for me.
If you get a notification on Facebook, asking you to join a retail page called “SIMPER.“, That’s me!
Simper is a synonym for smile, and I love smiling, so I thought it was perfeito! (:
Every single day, something exciting happens in our lives!
Being able to Walk
Being able to Eat
Having food to Eat
Smiling at your loved one
Petting your dog or cat or chinchilla, whatever! (Or if your like me, kissing your dog over & over & over)
Being able to see
Being able to smell
I could go on FOREVER.
There is always, ALWAYS something to look forward to, and something to be thankful for.
Make it a goal to live more positive, and don’t let the little things get to you.
If your complaining on Facebook about having a horrible start to your day, because you have a flat tire, or you lost a bet, or whatever..
Always remember that someone just woke up and realized something a lot worse.
Save your worries for something that truly matters, and be thankful for what you have, not what you don’t have.
XOXOXO, The Little Wifey ❤
