We bought a house! EEEEEEEEK!
|Signing his life away, 150 pages later...|
Ever since we moved to Tucson in November, we knew our goal was to buy a house, our FIRST house. ASAP. I was sick of renting...after spending all of our relationship and marriage in the Military, this was our first chance to actually be in a position that we could buy. And we were sooooo excited! ...but we had to secure jobs, save money, ladi-da-di-da... you know how it goes. Patience isn't exactly a strong point of mine, at all! I had no clue that buying a home would require so much- it got to the point that I was certain they were going to ask for blood samples, our first born child, a complete family history of disease... ok maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, but seriously! After putting in our first 3 offers (2 of which were offers above the asking price) and getting out-offered each time, we got pretty discouraged.
And then, we walked in this house. And fell in love. And finally, after what seems like forever, we are done. And it is OUR house. We got everything we wanted, from size to location, even a pool...and we have just under an acre of land (what the heck are we going to do with an acre of cactus!?) It is super secluded, which Lee and I love, and was a must for us. No neighbors close by, no traffic noise, just our own piece of the world that we can enjoy.
And I am not going to lie, our backyard kind of screams "Party!" So I foresee alot of very fun Saturday afternoons out by the pool.
We are actually really excited to start the process of making this house our home. Our first thing on the agenda is starting with paint colors! Our plan for this weekend? A couple gallons of paint, some beer, and a lot of work! We have the whole month of April to move out of our current place, and into our new place, so we are excited to be able to take our time and not have to rush.
And, being the crazy mom that I am, here is a pic of my sweet, confused looking baby this morning... I am pretty sure she is saying "so you are telling me we have to move again? This will be my third house in 8 months!" Well, yes baby, I am. But this will be the last time, for a long time. I promise :)
