The following pictures are horrendous, here is your warning to hit the little x button in the upper right hand corner if you have delicate, ummm, eyes. Some are from a couple of days ago and some are from today...after we (AKA Brian) cleaned...oh boy here they are...

We didn't end up qualifying for the loan that the mortgage broker assured us that we would qualify for. The loan was a rural development loan and we didn't have to have a down payment. This was the only reason that we even started looking at houses. We would have been fine waiting a couple more months, but once you find the house that you really want, it is so hard to back out...and we already had paid for the inspection and put escrow money down... So we decided to ask my family for the money for a down payment, which was one of the last things that we wanted to do.
So now, here we are, one week away from closing and two weeks away from when we have to be out of our apartment. Brian is away on a business trip and I have started packing. We have bought blinds for the bedroom (so we have them when we move in, consequently they are back ordered until the end of September) and are absolutely floored that we are going to have such an awesome house.
However, their is such a strong feeling of hesitation. Almost like we jinxed ourselves by starting to pack, and buying things for the house. If this falls through it is going to be so awful. Here's to keeping our fingers crossed and our hopes up!

The Crew: Brian, me, Angela, and Jeremy
Angela giving a little love and Brian cheesing it up in the background
This is Chris Young
I had heard of some of his songs but didn't really know anything about him. His songs are great and the concert was a lot of fun! The there weren't that many people at the festival which was nice. I think a concert is always better when their are less people.
We really loved finally getting a chance to hangout with Angela and Jeremy this summer. It was a great night!
P.S. All the pictures are courtesy of Angela.

Wade Lake south of Ennis, Montana
This picture shows really well how clear Wade Lake is. If you fish in a boat off the shore you can see the fish swimming probably a good ten feet down. It is pretty cool!

Tomorrow, my sister is leaving for India and I am going to go and say goodbye to her at the airport around 1:30pm. I am so excited that she gets to go. I hope that she enjoys her time and that she stays safe!
After my parents drop my sister off at the airport I am going to take them by our new house so they can see it and look in the windows and stuff. They are going to go camping at Wade and Cliff lakes tomorrow night through Sunday. I think that we are going to go up and join them on Friday and stay until Monday. It will be nice to get out of town and go camping for a long weekend.
Brian is going to go on a business trip the last week of August. He is going to Dallas for a leadership in firefighting conference. I am totally jealous and wish that I could go with him! I am glad though that he gets to have the opportunity to go and learn more. The timing is sort of bad though. That is the week that things pick up here at the police station and I will be working extreme amounts of overtime, and we are supposed to be closing on our house and moving the first week in September. In those three weeks I only have three full days off. So things should be awesomely crazy!

We already have a beautiful white duvet with a stripe of brown embroidered flowers and gold/tan sheets. I was thinking I could get a set of blue sheets to alternate and then paint the walls a light tan with maybe an light eggshell blue wall. It would go great with the curtains! Everything that I have found that I like so much is Pottery Barn. I love the idea of the foot stools at the end of the bed. I might be able to find some old foot stools that need to be recovered and also make my own curtains so that I can get them to match...hmmm...like I said, OUTTA CONTROL. I don't even sew!
