My First Year of Being a Homeowner!

One year ago today I closed on my house and started the wonderful adventure of being a homeowner. I love it. It's a cute little townhouse in a cute little neighborhood, and it's just the right size for the Ozmister and me!  When you move out, you get the same questions over and over. Even a year later, I still get these questions! I'll answer some of them for you... Q- "So, how do you like being on your own?" A- Are you kidding? It's FABULOUS. I have always loved my me time, and now I get to have it for hours, every single day!  I get to do what I want, wear what I want, watch what I want, eat what I want...who wouldn't love that? Q- "So, are you settling in your new house?" A- I should hope so, it's been a year! If I'm not used to it by now, I probably need therapy. Q- "Do you have everything you need?"

I was at a Zumba event (an amazing event, next blog!) until 8:45 last night, and came out of the building to find freezing rain and a frozen car door! I made it up to Matt's house last night and have been having a snow day with his family today. Matt has 3 brothers, and as you can imagine they like to watch The Walking Dead, not the Oscars, so we DVR'd it! This morning Kathy and I sat down to watch the red carpet show before the main event. One by one the boys trickled in and gave their opinions of the show. They were NOT fans of all the short haircuts on the ladies! Don't tell them I told you. ;) First things first.  Ladies, let's just take a moment... Oh, and can't forget... Also, there were some really, really, REALLY beautiful couples! Okay, back to the blog. I think Ellen did a fabulous job hosting! I just adore her and her sense of humor! I can't go on without showing
