100 days AND we bought a house today!

Champagne: check!!

By the time this baby posts we should be giddy new homeowners!!! A huge day in the wedding countdown AND we close on a house….perfect!

We really went through the ringer as far as trying to buy a house goes (as I’m sure many people are these days)…we tried for 2 short sales in 2010, both fell through and completely wasted our time. We hate sellers’ banks. We jumped back on the hunting bandwagon right after Christmas not knowing when or if we would find a house in time to be moved in before the wedding. We must have looked at 15-20 houses in 2-3 weeks time and finally found an adorable 3-bed ranch in an amazing neighborhood where we already know many wonderful people :) We’ve been wanting to move out on our own for a long time now and this is just a huge day for us! We’ll be re-modeling the kitchen, taking down wallpaper (lots of it), painting bedrooms and refinishing hardwoods…we have our work cut out for us but we couldn’t be HAPPIER!

OMG! Congrats!!! You guys will definitely have plenty of room for the gifts now! We are going through the home renovation process right now and while it is tons of work, so worth it in the end (like planning a wedding) This is definitely very exciting.
