drum roll please…

We got the house!!^10 (yea, raise those exclamation marks to the 10th power to get a better idea of how I feel).

The house was foreclosed and owned by a bank, so we pretty much signed our lives away this evening on contracts the bank made us sign (see: David v. Goliath (1045BC) ) to save their own butts in case anything goes wrong. We set the closing date for July 17th so that we have enough time to save for a) a car and b) house project money.

Meanwhile I may or may not be going crazy in our current living situation. Thus, I have turned to planning, lists, and dreaming about updates we want to make to the house. Like I said, it’s a fixer upper, so I’ve got my daydreaming work cut out for me. Here are a few of my *ahem* ‘plans':

Yup. That’s exactly what our home is going to look like, in case anyone was wondering.

    Congratulations! It looks lovely, much classier than an apartment. Hope Pearl’s doing well in the new environment.
