We Bought a House!

On Sunday night the Hubbers and I Redbox'd "We Bought a Zoo," and now every time I think of our house I picture that little girl yelling "We bought a HOUSE!" And we did. And we're so excited. I have been living in our little Myers Park condo for four years now. The fella moved in in January (and I moved home until our wedding, so we didn't co-habitate), and we have loved starting our marriage in such cozy quarters, but we also realized quickly that we needed more space. With two of us, two pups and hopefully an expanding family soon, we need room. 

We worked with a fabulous realtor and looked at about 18 houses. We even put an offer on a huge foreclosure and spent time alone on its front porch one night praying over it, telling God that we knew He was the Provider, and praying for the family that would live there, be it us or another one. We were so disappointed when our offer wasn't accepted, but we were so excited knowing that God had something even better in mind for our family. 

And we found the perfect one. In a precious family neighborhood, our home is nestled on a triple cul-de-sac corner lot with a front porch, fenced back yard, and open floor plan. To say that we're excited about be an understatement, and I'm pretty positive that I've spent more time Pinning house ideas than I did wedding ideas. We can't wait to move and call it home. Assuming that everything goes through as planned we'll be packing up our micro-life and closing on our new abode on September 28th.

Well, congratulations for finally having your own house! :) And good thing you really took the time to look into a couple of houses before deciding on what house would suit your family. Also, it looks like some flowers would make your house more attractive. I hope you’d add more of it. Good luck!
