Thats right we closed on our first house yesterday!

We ended up buying a charming foreclosure in a suburb just north of the city in a town i grew up in. For the past 4 years we have been renting a house here and when this sweet charmer of a house went on the market we jumped right on it! I was slightly shocked we got it actually. You see the house is in a much sought after school district, the curb appeal is quiet charming, the price was outstanding and there wasn't a ton of work that needs to go into it. We placed an offer in on a Thursday afternoon and it sat all weekend, finally on Tuesday morning we heard that they accepted our offer. That was 3 months ago! I feel so blessed that we go this house.

Last night we went in and celebrated, tore out all the carpet up the stairs and in the bedrooms, and replaced the locks. Today we have a contractor putting in canned lighting, tearing out part of a wall and the ceiling and then drywalling it. We have the floor guy coming tonight to refinish the floors and then the painters come. What i'm most excited about are my new appliances. The fridge i picked out is huge with french doors and the freezer on the bottom. I never in my life thought i would be excited about a fridge. Once the main construction is done we will have the downstairs painted and the cabinets put in.

I can not wait to actually move into our new house! I am not normally a patient person, but i have learned how to be very patient in the last few years. I am taking in all these exciting moments and not trying too hard to only want the finished project. It's all about the journey and i'm loving ours!


  1. Congratulations, that's exciting! You know you're a real adult when refrigerators are a big deal.

  2. Yay. That's awesome. Congrat's and what a blessing. Can't wait to see pictures!

  3. Aaaaah! How EXCITING!! I am so happy for your sweet family :)

  4. Congratulations! Very exciting! We bought a short sale and it took us 7 months to get it. I learned some patience myself with that one.
