The Turnover.

It's official. As of 5:00 pm, 10.20.08, the hubs and I became proud owners of a beautiful home. We are homeowners, baby! We. own. a. home. We still can't believe that the house that we entered with our own key is ours. Ours. Wow.

It was quite fantastic. The turning over of the keys to us. We signed a paper and then came out a pretty colored Tiffany blue box with a white satin ribbon tied around it. My eyes nearly fell out. We were totally not expecting that.

What we received were a pair of crystal candle holders. So pretty! They even have Tiffany colored "warning" stickers on top. How cute is that? I can't wait to use them over the holidays. These pair of candle holders are going to be a constant reminder of our first home.

My mom was insistent of us bringing in a small amount of uncooked rice and salt. It's a Filipino tradition and it's suppose to bring you good luck. So, in we went with it. So, in we went with it. Hah.

We'll be moving in this coming weekend and we can't wait. Moreso, me. I'm so ecstatic to finally be able to call a place, " our home."
