Some Updates..ok a lot of updates!

I've been so MIA lately and haven't been keeping up with all the blogs...some how the time is just flying. I can't believe our house done soon and we are closing in a little over 2 weeks. Sorry I am a slacker and not doing a 30 day countdown. Props to Deidre :)
 But just to update everyone there has been a lot of progress with the house and I feel like the house could be done by next week (not that we would close earlier than planned). We locked in at 4.75% a couple of weeks ago and we are just getting some things finalized with NVR for the mortgage. We are annoyed with our experience with the NVR person we are working with since she doesn't seem to know enough  and she is slacking on communicating and getting everything finalized.
We bought king size bed and bedroom furniture a couple of weeks ago which we are very excited it about it since we only have a full size bed now. So keeping our fingers crossed about getting it delivered the weekend after we close!
So sorry momoftwins, I've been holding out on the pics! Here's some of the house and the furniture. We really are completely happy with all of our color choices and excited about how it's coming together. Also, we discovered that the faucets in the bathroom aren't the standard ones like the we thought we were supposed to get, so it was a good surprise.
This is a super long blog for me, but I also want to give a shout out to our PM who has been amazing with making sure all the little issues are getting fixed. We will be giving him a little gift once the house is done. Has anyone thought about doing this?

Nosy Neighbors!

Today my fiance was walking through our house after work and noticed a couple from across the street going from house to house on our block to check out the houses that are being built. So our neighbors came in through the garage and were surprised to see my fiance standing in the family room. They awkwardly introduced themselves and then proceeded to try to tour the house on their own,which I find strange to walk around someone's house without really asking to look around. They then went upstairs and the woman was walking all over our newly laid tile in our bathroom. They also kept asking about what was upgraded...I just wish I were there to directly address their rudeness. Most of our neighbors that we have met seemed to be pretty nice, but this couple..they won't be borrowing anything of ours haha.
Has anyone had any issues like this??
