*Project 12: A photo on the first day of every month*
Faithful Place: Eh. It was okay.
The Giver: I liked this one! Super quick read. I think it took me 2 days.

We traveled to Texas: April 18-19 to celebrate my sister's 18th birthday.
I still haven't stopped crying about it. My little sister is 4 years old in my mind forever, okay?
Um, so this happened. As if I could forget.
^^^ Someone asked me once if I would rather have the ability to rewind time or pause it. I said pause. I've never wanted to pause time more than when my whole family is together, sitting around the dinner table. It's the best.
^^^ Speaking of my family, on April 22, my mom drove up so we could go to the Festival of the Arts! It's my favorite week of the year in downtown OKC, and we've gone together for the last four years. I have more pictures from the Arts Festival to share in a post to come!
^^^Another notable event? WE BOUGHT A HOUSE. This is us on the way to our closing.
Yes, the saga of the roof has concluded, and we are officially homeowners! The roofer was actually AT the closing to get a final check from the sellers. Nothing like finishing at the last minute. But at least I can stop being dramatic about the rain, which Jordan is happy about.
This is an answer to a prayer that I have been praying for years now, and I feel so thankful and blessed and also slightly overwhelmed by all the stuff we need to buy. Why are there so many types of washer/dryer combinations?
Also, no, I'm sorry but I'm not posting a picture of our house on the blog. Like, ever. Because, hello internet creepsters. But I'll probably take pics of the inside at some point and show you. Although not right now, because there's literally nothing to see at the moment.
BUT YAY WE HAVE A HOUSE AND IT'S SO AWESOME.
THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE CANNOT DESCRIBE MY EXCITEMENT.
INSERT MULTIPLE EXCLAMATION POINTS.

I know a few other awesome blogger friends are doing Project 12 this year (yay!) and so I'll be adding a linkup to my Project 12 posts. This is the lowest of low key linkups. There's not a button or any rules. Just link up if you wrote a Project 12 post!
