The Lieslands

simply livin' it up

Class II: Rounding third and heading for . . .

Last night was the second installment in our Homebuying Class. For everyone else it was their last class (so they received their diplomas), but Susan and I missed the first class so we are going to have to wrap it up in July. Hopefully by that time we will have found a house we like. We are headed out this evening to look at a few more prospects, but I don’t see anything too promising on the list.

Let the Games Begin! ! ! !

The house hunt is now officially on. Now that the whole wedding thing is over and all we are left with is a marriage, Susan, Andrew, and I have decided that it is time to begin looking for a house here in Cincinnati.

We had our first class last night at The Home Ownership Center of Greater Cincinnati. We learned all about realtors and home inspectors. The funniest part of the class was when someone asked the home inspector what he does if the house is haunted (seriously).

You don’t see these very often. . .

I was getting these ready last night, and I thought, “You know, I bet you don’t get to see honeymoon pictures very often.”


Our Honeymoon Pictures

I didn’t want to say where we were for every picture, but you can look at the date:


6/7-Tillamook, Canon Beach, & Seaside


6/9-Mt. Rainier

6/10-Multnomah falls

6/11-Mt. Hood

All of the times listed by the photos are eastern time.

The Victory Parade

Susan and I returned from the Pacific Northwest on Saturday. After a very successful trip it is time to resume our not-so-normal lives in the crazy ‘nati. There will be pictures from the trip posted soon, so be patient. They are on the way.

Portland or Bust

Tomorrow Susan and I head to Portland for our honeymoon. It should be quite the adventure. We are flying out, renting a car, and then going to see some random things. Should be a good trip, but we have no clue how Andrew is going to do. We fear that he may go to bed every night at 7 or 8 and get up at 4 or 5 in the morning. Even if he does adjust, we have no clue what he is going to do when we get back. I guess we will let you know.

Getting Started

Hey!! Welcome to our blog!! Susan and I were married on May 29, 2004 at Bellarmine Chapel in Cincinnati. For more info, check out our wedding website.
