New House

Yay! We finally bought a new house! We realized that our tiny little house just wasn't adequate anymore, so we went on the arduous hunt to find a bigger house in our same area that wasn't out of our price range. Here in the 'Peg, the real estate market is so competitive that we lost the first house that we bid on. We made an offer $20,000 OVER the asking price and it sold for $31,000 OVER...go figure. However, we completely lucked out...no, God was watching out for us...on the house we bought. It was a tad over-priced to begin with, so not one other person bid on it. Soooo, we put in an offer $6,000 below their asking price and got it...YAY FOR US!!!

Now starts the process of putting our house on the market and packing to move. What joy for a pregnant lady...??? Luckily, I have a ton of really AMAZING friends here who have offered to help in any way they can...watch out girls, I just might take you up on it!

To do list:

-Pick out paint colors
-Get rid of junk that we don't need
-build a new garage
-pick out all new lighting
-get a mantle piece for our new fireplace (so excited to have a fireplace)
-about 1,000,000 other things
-oh yeah, have baby... oiy!
