We're Buying a House!

Now that we've been through the inspection process, I can finally announce that we are buying a house! :)

We close in mid March, and Daniel and I are so excited to make this space our own.  We're also constantly asking one another when we became old enough for this, and how did we get so blessed?

I never updated you all on how the first evening of looking at houses went because we found the one that night!  It was our second stop.  I walked in, started crying a little, Daniel looked at me and said, "Okay." We knew it was it.  We made an offer that night after seeing three more houses and finding out there was already an offer on our house.  We found out the next afternoon our offer was accepted!  From there, we set up an inspection that was postponed several days due to last week's blizzard.  Thankfully the inspection went well, and we're happily moving forward.

We've had projects on our minds for the past couple of weeks, and much of our intentional time together has been spent clicking through Pinterest and walking around Home Depot. :) Fine by me!

This house will be the first place Daniel and I move into at the same time.  It'll be OUR space from the beginning.  It'll also be the house our future babies make messes in.  I am over the moon!

And I owe it to my sweet husband, who is a master at crunching numbers and calling realtors and lenders.  WHAT A MAN. Thanks, boo!



  1. You were so lucky to get the perfect house in the second stop, and had your offer accepted at the same time. That’s really nice! It can be quite hard to find a house that completely fits a person's tastes in such a short period of time. So I'm not really surprised when you immediately went for it when you found the perfect one. Cheers!

  2. Congratulations! Buying a house can be quite a complicated affair, but closing it in such a short amount of time must be quite fortunate for you! Reading your earlier post, I'm sure you guys may have been nervous when you found out that there was already an offer, only for it to be replaced by thrill when they accepted yours! Again, cheers to the new homeowners!

  3. Take a moment to enjoy! Congratulations on your first home together! I know how nerve racking it can be to find out if your offer was accepted. The best part of a new house is knowing that you can make the home COMPLETELY yours; your style, your colors, your furniture, and most importantly, your memories. Cheers to a bright new future family home!

  4. How wonderful for you and your husband to find your first home together so quickly! I know that it can sometimes take a while to find the perfect home in which to start your life together. It is amazing that your offer was accepted the very next day and you closed already. I wish you luck in your new home.
