We're Buying a Home!!

As many of you know I recently started working full time. Well as you all know with a full time job, comes full time pay!! And well, lets just put it this way.... my husband and I LOVE to spend money! So what will we do now? We've decided to buy a house! I'm so excited!

We started looking at homes about 2 weeks ago. We found a few that we really liked. Unfortunately they were all under contract. We were so bummed. Then we found this huge beautiful home about 10 miles from where we currently live. We fell in love.

And with any great love affair, comes a commitment. So on Friday morning at 8am we placed an offer. And on Friday evening at 8:30 pm we got a call from our realtor. They had accepted our offer!! (No, they didn't accept it just like that, but that's a whole other story!)

My husbands I screamed into the phone when she told me the news. I don't think I did. He's delusional. :) But we are very excited! So now comes all the fun parts... packing, paperwork, money, inspections, more paperwork, more packing, more paperwork, more money and more paperwork!! I hope you all will enjoy my ramblings as I document our venture as first time home buyers!!
