We're Buying a House!

We're still in the option period and still have both the inspection and appraisal to go, but we have signed the contract for this house!

I'll have to post a better picture, but this is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house that sits on 2.5 acres. The inspection is this afternoon, which is a little scary, but I don't think we'll have anything to worry about. We've even already locked in our intrest rate! Wow, all of these big decisions! As you can see, the yard is in desparate need of some landscaping and removal of some shrubs, but that's ok...we like to do that!

For some other good news, Travis has finally finished his proposal and is getting it turned in this week!! Maybe he'll graduate after all!! :)

Ok, I'll keep you posted (hehe...posted, and this is a post...hehe, ok...maybe not funny to everyone) on the progress of the house!

Yea, congrats! I was just asking Joanne yesterday if she'd heard anything about your house hunting. When you're done working on your yard will you come and work on mine?

Yea! It's exciting, isn't it? To think that you're adult enough to qualify for a mortgage?! ;-)

I'd love to work on your yard! Oh, and I wanted to tell you that if you still want tomato plants, I have some started in the greenhouse and I'll give you some transplants. I have a grape tomato variety that I think the boys will like because they're small!

Yeah, a it is exciting...and really, really scary at the same time! I'd be just fine if I didn't hear the phrase "closing costs" for the rest of my life!! Too bad that's not likely to happen!!
