We Found a House!

That's right! We had TONS of success house hunting this weekend!! Saturday morning Justin, his parents and I went out with a realtor to look at some houses. We were open to renting or buying at the right price. We also had our minds set on a townhouse style. Little did we know that our realtor had a few actual houses within our price range to show us. We went to the first house and immediately fell in love. We all knew it was the one right away. There was absolutely no question about it. We were ready to put an offer in almost immediately. We did look at another house after that but it really just didn't hold a candle to the previous one. After a little talking it over we quickly decided to head back to the realtor's office and put in an offer. We just knew we had found our first home. 

Justin and I put our offer in on Saturday but didn't expect to hear back until Monday. To our surprise the family got back with us the very next day! After a little negotiation we settled on a price. Within the blink of an eye we became homeowners! We of course still have paper work, inspections, bank stuff, etc, etc to work out but the process has officially started! It will be the end of July before we get in most likely but that hasn't stopped me from already decorating away in my mind and on Pinterest. 

I'm going to go ahead and apologize for the picture overload. I'm too excited not to share every detail of our future home! The current family is still living in the house so this if of course all of their furniture. You can get the gist though of how the house looks! The pictures aren't the best quality. Some were quickly taken from my I phone and the others I snagged from the online listing.

I'm so thankful Justin and I have this opportunity to start our life in this home. Now, let the decorating and planning begin! 


  1. Oh my gosh, this is the cutest house ever! Congratulations!

  2. I'm so excited for you! I definitely know what you mean about already decorating in your head and on pinterest. We are in the process of selling our first home and building a new one and while all the papers and everything isn't finalized, I have definitely already started planning! I can't wait to see how you decorate! Congrats girl!

  3. This house is precious! Love that you got all of your wish list items.. plus the walk in closet (; You're going to have to do a home tour when it's all said and done!

  4. Girlfriend!! This is absolutely amazing!! Your new home is beautiful... and talk about an awesome outdoor space!!!

  5. Finally, you found the house you love! Congratulations! And I must say, it's quite lucky that you heard from the homeowners the next day after you've put down your offer, and that you didn’t encountered any problem in the negotiations. That’s a huge relief. I hope it will progress as smoothly as that for the inspection and paperwork. Have a great day!
