My First Home!



This is completely unfood related but never one to keep secrets, I must share. I've been quiet and I'm sure you've noticed. But J and I made an offer on a house, the offer was accepted, we've got our financing in order, and it looks like we'll close on the house around September 18!!! I'm super excited! Been insanely frustrated with renting and the total lack of responsibility the property manager has. It will be nice to have our own place and finally have something pretty to come home to! I'm going to be a homeowner!

The house is just 3 years old, has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, all stainless kitchen appliances, a 1000sq foot deck, jacuzzi tub in the master bath, a walk in closet with awesome shelving/drawers, central air, a gas fireplace, cathedral ceilings in the family room and master bedroom, a two car garage, and 2.2 acres. I'm freakin PSYCHED! It's a lot of house for the price we're getting and the best part is that it's across the street from two of our good friends (we always joked about being neighbors someday but definitely didn't think it would ever happen). It doesn't have my gas stove with 100 burners (haha) but that's something I could have down the road. It's definitely more house than we planned on buying but it feels right.

We're doing the home inspection on Monday afternoon and I'll take pictures. I'll do my best to post some of them here (at least a comparison of my current shitty kitchen vs. the new house). OH and it has ample natural lighting so if my photos still suck you'll know it's just me and not my crappy kitchen!
