It's been a while...

Sooo. Yea, it's been a while...
Sorry about that.
I'll be better, really, I promise!

A lot has happened these days, weeks, months.
My boyfriend and I got the house! Jey!
And it's in a lot worse shape then I thought.. It was dirty (like really, really DIRTY... Not nice..) the day we bought the house the heating gave out.. So it was cold, like freezing cold...
But we cleaned and cleaned and cleaned and then we cleaned some more!
We got the heating fixed so we were no longer freezing while doing al this cleaning and we could just grab hot water from the tab (let me tell you, how spoiled I have been to always have heat and warm running water! And how much I missed it when I didn't have it.. And how exited I was when we got it fixed!!)

The boyfriend is also no longer my boyfriend...
He is now my fiance!!!
Oh my! I knew he was planning on "someday" asking me to marry him, but I never thought it would be this soon!
He gave me a promise ring on my mother's birthday (5th January) and we had talked about getting married before, but I never thought that on Saturday 29th January he would ask me to marry him!
He said he had planned to ask me this Valentines, but he couldn't hold it in any longer.
Aaaah, it was so sweet!
Oh, yeah, I said 'yes'!
So after remodeling, fixing up the home and moving we have a wedding to plan!
We plan to marry on Saturday June 16, 2012.
It seems like a long time away, but I already had a panic attack about the plates for dinner.. Yea.. I'm like that...

My brain is trying to come to grips with all this exiting news! And sometimes it's a bit overwhelming. But all in all really good!
My poor brain is also trying to come to terms with all the new STUFF I got!! Seriously, I don't want to come across as showing off, but I bought myself a new camera! (really, I love it so!! But the amount of money is a bit ridiculous! I'm still scared of taking it out of the house and breaking it..) and I got an actual KitchenAid Mixer! Seriously! This has been something I wanted, coveted, loved-from-a-far since I was like 14 years old! (I know, I was a strange kid, and I still am!)
It's even in my favorite colour, Ice blue!!!
This might sound really bad, but I'm still staring at it, after weeks... I only stared at my engagement ring for about a week! Almost in disbelieve...
I haven't used it, yet. I have no room in my current kitchen (it's so tiny) and it was a gift for our new home, so I have to be patient.. It's going to be difficult, but I have to be patient...

This is the part where I have to hang my head in shame.. I don't know (yet!) how to get pictures from my new camera on to my laptop... I know, I know... I'm really bad!!! But I promise I'll read the instructions and get some real pictures on here!

So for now I will leave you with some more pictures, not taken by me, of our new house, soon, our home...
I promise I'll be better and write more!

The kitchen!!!! Ooh, I how I love kitchens!

P.S. This is the "before" of the kitchen! We have worked/cleaned hard, and more, better pictures are coming soon!
Right, now I will go and try to take my new camera outside... Oh my...
