What’s keeping me busy….

…is a new house!

Well, it’s actually a condo unit somewhere in Pasig but it’s ours! I cannot contain my excitement as after almost five years of renting (wasting money on rent), we have our own.

I can declare that 2013 is truly the “Year of the Lord’s Favor”. The year started good but it’s ending oh so great! It has been a journey of faith that I’d like to share but I’m saving that story for another post.

I’ve been busy with all the packing and spring cleaning the past month and since we’ve made the big move last week–unpacking, spring cleaning again, and decorating. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my #springcleaning posts already, plus a sneak peek of our new place.

It’s not a mansion but it’s very spacious for the three of us. Even if we add another baby, it will be just right too. I have a big kitchen (hooray!), a laundry room, a spare room for all our “junk”, and more! I knew we would have our own place but not this soon.

House-hunting definitely taught me a lot of things and made me realize the things more important in life. It was truly a humbling experience. It wasn’t easy but I knew that it was God guiding us all along.

This house is a testimony of God’s AMAZING GRACE. In the meantime, allow me to share these photos.

the red door
The Red Door. I’ve always wanted a red door in our future house. While checking out the place for the first time, I didn’t notice the door was painted in red so I when I finally realized it, I said, “It’s a sign!”. True enough, the house was meant for us.

We’ve got a pool! Haven’t tried dipping into the pool, maybe next week.

We finally have a landline phone (two actually) but this is display only.

My son’s version of Toy Story. Each toy is pre-loved. All original. Believe it or not, all priced below P500. (Thanks to my shopping powers.)
tips on moving
He had no idea where he was going…
welcome to our home
Surprised my mom by bringing her there. She was clueless until I told her “Welcome to our house!”. She thought it was Joshua’s new office. I’m really glad that she’s with us in every transition of my life.
man cave playroom
Man Cave in Progress. Husband called dibs on the blue room. It’ll be his home office-gym-music room-Noah’s playroom.

And we’re home. 🙂

 

Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.
