    As if Ben and I didn’t have enough to do 10 days before our wedding, we decided to add one more goal to the itinerary:

    Yesterday, we put an offer on what is likely to be our first home. And the offer — which was a damn good one — was accepted. So if all goes well with inspection and such, we will be first-time homeowners on Nov. 25 — just a week or so into our arrival into Smug Marriedness.

    First comes love, then comes marriage, then there goes all your savings on a cute, split-level ranch!

    More to come…
