So lots has been going on in the life of the Figs lately.
We recently got back from a fabulous trip to The Big Apple
to see these fine people, and had an amazing time.
(here are some preview pics-more to come)
Once we got back, we were in full steam ahead towards getting our HOUSE.
Yes thats right people...our very first home.
I haven't wanted to say much because I didn't want to jinx it,
but seeing as we sign tomorrow im thinking its OK!
(lets hope)
We have been:
researching bills
gathering documents
emailing some more
sending scans
digging for paperwork
filling out applications
watching our savings quickly dwindle :)
and most importantly...
dreaming of how to make our first home ours
Excited is an understatement.
Wish us luck!

NYC Bound...

I always had this dream...
of seeing NYC during Christmas time.
Well, when I was a freshman in college my dad made my dream come true
(like he always has)
and I fell in LOVE.
It was cold
and did I mention cold?
But ohhh how I was instantly obsessed with the Concrete Jungle.
I secretly dream I was a real life character in Gossip Girl-
without the lying, drugs, inappropriateness, etc. of course-
But I just have a fascination with the city and would honestly move there in a heart beat.
last year, when Scott moved for work,
I planned a trip to visit Suz in DC and then head to NYC to see Scott.
Suz and I lived it up and loved every minute.
We packed a lot into our short 2 days.
Welllllllll of course as soon as Ky and Scott were engaged
I started planning our trip to visit once they were hitched.
I told Josh it was happening no matter what.
So of course I booked as soon as I could.
This will be my 3rd time and Josh's FIRST!
I cannot wait to experience and explore with him.
Im giddy with excitement, and still in shock we're actually going...all at the same time
Red eye tomorrow
and we are off!
Maddux family get ready!
