Big News!!!!!! and yogurt

So I was all excited to post tomorrow about the New mattress that Brian and I bought last weekend which is going to be delivered tomorrow. No really, I am beyond excited for this amazingly comfortable sleeping area I am about to have. Both of us have always had like "hand-me-down" mattresses and mine is way too firm for my liking and it's a Full size so Brian is a tad too tall for it.

Well we decided to buy one now because we knew we'd want a new one when we moved, and we decided for now it would go to my apartment because I have the worse bed haha.

So yes I am still ecstatic about the mattress....BUT...we got bigger news yesterday:

An offer we put on a house was ACCEPTED!!!!!!!! Holy Crap!!!!!! By the end of this month we are going to be Home Owners!!!!!

I can't even believe it! The house hunting process was so stressful during an already stressful time and when we finally found this one I was really trying not to get too excited about it until we knew for sure.

It's a cute little Cape in a cute neighborhood and I'll still only be 15min from Boston (which was very important to us while looking), and only 15min to work (takes me 30min now).

I'd love to put up a picture, but I am going to wait until after the home inspection this know, JUST in case....ugg the thought of hearing bad news just makes me sick haha.

I can't wait to tackle some decorating and updates in the house...and post about it obviously. Maybe a few "before and after" shots hehe, OMG SO EXCITED!

Ok ok, I'll be done (for now).

On to some yogurt

A while back the wonderful people at Stonyfield Farms asked if I'd like some coupons to try their organic Greek Yogurt...Oikos!!

I know you've seen this stuff all over blog land and here's my review :)

So far I've tried the vanilla...I'm rationing my coupons haha!I packed this baby for a snack the other day
I'm going to have to agree with a lot of people when they say this is a thicker Greek Yogurt! Thicker in a good way though! This is delicious...creamy, thick, and flavorful. I loved the subtle vanilla flavor, but not overly sweet like regular "flavored" yogurts are. The Stonyfield Vanilla is my favorite vanilla for regular yogurt too so I was not surprised by how much I loved this one.

Yes these cost a little more than some other brands, but this is the only Organic Greek Yogurt out there!! That's gotta count for something right?!

Thanks So much Stonyfield!!! I am looking forward to enjoying many more Oikos in the future.
