{weekend recap}

This weekend was very busy and very exciting! On Friday night, we went to my bridesmaid K's new condo that she was moving into this past weekend. She was so excited to have a place to call her own. After the visit, we went out for dinner with K and her boyfriend. We also have such a great time with them as they are fun to be around.

On Saturday, we went for our second round of house hunting. We started at 10am and saw 10 houses. We saw some nice houses, some okay houses and some down right ugly houses! I am sorry to the person who owns the ugly one, but baby blue walls and baby blue carpet everywhere just doesn't cut it when you are asking $450,000 for your house! I wish I could show you a picture of how bad it was! We also saw a foreclosure, and I think the people were very angry when they moved out as almost every wall had a huge hole in it. That night, we hung out as we were tired from house hunting...it's a lot of work! We watched the movie 'The Lovely Bones', which I loved the book version. The movie was different but still pretty good.

On Sunday, we went house hunting again. We were taking a second tour of a house we had seen earlier in the week and another house that was comparable. To make the story short, we put an offer in on the house we were touring for the second time. After some going back and forth over the price with the sellers, they accepted our offer!!! We still have to have a home inspection later this week on it, but the house was built in 2004 so there shouldn't be anything major with it. Our move in date is May 14th, so we are very excited!! I can't wait to show you pictures once everything has gone through for sure.

OMG, we bought a house! Mr.D and I are both very excited to have our own house and something to call our own. We have the house and it may be pretty empty when we move in, but hey, it's ours!

  2. Congratulations! That is so exciting. Buying your first house together is a HUGE milestone. That all happened very quickly - so nice that you were able to find something you both liked. It can be such a long process!! And it's not as 'fun' as you would think it might be to shop for a home...
