Well, sort of. We still have some work to do but it will definitely be ready by tomorrow afternoon when our very first house guests arrive! Let me rewind a little bit. About a week ago Chris and I were debating whether or not to stay in Kansas City and spend New Years Eve with our friends or to return back to E-Ville, get a lot of work done on the house, and have a low-key NYE at home. In the end, we decided we should probably go back home after Christmas and take advantage of Chris’ time off to work on some home improvement projects. Now fast forward to Christmas Eve. We’re at my parents house…Maren has Chris off somewhere making him pretend he is Tom and she is Jerry…I’m chatting in the kitchen enjoying the appetizers way too much…then I see my phone lighting up on the counter. An e-mail from Brittany. She and Jimmy want to come to our house for New Years Eve! What? Can this be for real?! I am so excited that I immediately respond “YES,” tell everyone around me, then run to find “Tom” and tell him the good news. He is pumped as well. But wait, it gets better. Two days later Emily and Jeff are in…could life get any better?!?
