New Digs

I have been a busy busy girl! Anyone that is my friend in real life (or on facebook) knows that I just BOUGHT A HOUSE! AAAAHHH!!

After what feels like hundreds of houses and months of searching, we finally walked into a house and had that “when you know, you know” feeling. It’s missing a few things we thought we had to have but looked past those things for the gorgeous street, awesome layout and enormous fenced in yard. I walked in and immediately could actually visualize my friends playing cornhole in the backyard at a summer bbq, my family over for Easter Sunday and bumming around on the couch with Rob watching TV on a random Tuesday night. We offered on it the next day. It wasn’t even on the market yet!! (which is why I have no pictures to share with you as of yet, except this one):
Today is our home inspection. I am anxious to make sure that nothing is wrong with house, but even more so, I am thrilled to actually walk through it again (for the second time) and to show my Dad and sister around the new digs. I have every intention of obnoxiously following every step of the home inspector and ask him millions of questions about everything, measure every room and make a meager attempt to sketch them out so that when we look at furniture, we can ACTUALLY look at furniture, write down paint colors and which rooms can stay how they are and which rooms need to be painted immediately. I wish maybe we didn’t end up picking the coldest/gloomiest day of the year we’ve had so far for this fun, but whatever….

If everything goes well, we will be closing on November 12 and getting the keys on November 20… (although rumor has it the old owners have already found and offered on a new house, so hopefully they’ll get out of our house sooner than the 20th!)

I promise pictures soon! Start getting excited for the housewarming party!
As long as you have good friends, good food and maybe a keg or two….who really needs furniture….right??
