Our Very Own Babette!

I don't know if you are a fan of Gilmore Girls, but Matt and I have almost watched every episode ever made... we are almost done with season 7!  Anyway, on Tuesday Evening, we met our first neighbor at our new house.  Matt and I immediately decided she is our very own Babette.  If you haven't seen the show, Babette is the next door neighbor to the main characters and is known for speaking her mind even if it is a bit blunt! Babette is also an animal lover!
So Barb, our new neighbor lives across the street in the house with the purple shutters.  Matt was out mowing and I was taking him a drink as she was getting home from work.  She hurried across the street and quickly asked if we had bought the house. We told her we had and she was so very excited! She just kept saying, "OH! Thank God! I'm so glad it is you that moved in and she is never coming back!" 
She went on and on telling us she was a grandma and that she loved kids. She asked if we had any, we said we didn't... yet. She told us we needed to get busy and have one so she had a baby to come over and hold!  
Barb made sure we knew that she was parking in the driveway and not the garage because she had 2 dogs she let live in the garage when it was too hot to be outside, one is blind and runs into things.  She also has 3 cats... 2 of which have lung disease.  She just made me smile!
It was so nice to meet a neighbor and know they are excited that we are here! I can't wait to move in!

Haha...don't you just love the old lady neighbors. We have one that lives next door that has lived at that house for over 25 years and she knows all the neighborhood gossip. She's going to be a hoot I'm sure! :-)
