We Got A House

Okay, I am officially a terrible blogger but I thought I'd give it one more try. So we have been looking at houses for around a month since Obama is giving out money. We have had a few disappointments since we started. I now understand why everyone says house hunting is so stressful! We made another offer on a house yesterday and after a long day of waiting and several counter offers, our offer was ACCEPTED! Joe and I were so excited. Now my obsession with HGTV has become more serious! I finally have a house that Joe will let me PAINT! It is all so exciting and overwhelming.

So, now what you have all been waiting for.....DETAILS! It is a 3 bedroom 2 bath home, one story, it has a dining room (which I never thought I would be so excited about but I really am now!) a garage, the master bath has 2 sinks :) AND 2---count em----2 walk-in closets! We each get one! It is not the fanciest or biggest house by any means but it is a perfect first house for us. Really the only sad news is that it is not in Germantown ward :( We love the ward, but couldn't pass this house up just because of the ward. BUT on the other hand we will back in 2nd ward with my parents and the ward I grew up in :) Yay for Bishop DAD!

Here are some pictures, not the best.....just what was posted on the house listing, but a lot of you have been asking so here it is......OUR FIRST HOUSE!

Here is the front of the house! I think it is SO cute!

The living room...wood paneling...will be painted or taken down ASAP haha (any suggestions?)

The Kitchen. You can see the dining room a little bit in the 2nd pic and the "breakfast area" in the 1st pic.

The backyard. We LOVE this little deck! It has a bench that runs the whole length of it.

SO I hope you are as excited as we are!
