Today is the Day!

Hi, friends! I'm popping in just for a second to let you know that today is a very big day for my husband and I--we settle on our house today! Tomorrow is moving day, too.

I've been occupied this month with packing and undoing all of the things we did to personalize our rental. It was certainly a little sad to see that all go but change is a very good thing.

I promise to be back on a regular basis next week, posting as a homeowner. Yippee!

Planning Ahead: Decorating the Den

Hi, everyone! I want to thank you all from bottom of my heart for the incredibly sweet and supportive comments you posted regarding our soon-to-be house! I'm so glad you all like it too, because you're going to be seeing it featured on the blog quite a bit!

Since the house is nearly 3,100 sq. feet and there's only 2 of us for now, Adam and I have decided to prioritize the rooms we'll be using in the short term--that means our bedroom, a bathroom or two, the den and eventually the kitchen. Of those spaces, the den is the room that needs only aesthetic changes. Here's what the room looks like now (from the MLS listing):

We Bought a House!

We bought a house, everyone! 
Despite rattling on about "starting our house search" for what seems like years, Adam and I made an appointment to visit a house in the nearby suburbs just before Christmas. We walked in and fell in love. Like, head-over-heels, stars-in-the-eyes in love. We put in an offer and had it accepted just before New Year's Eve and had our inspection yesterday. Oh, and we are closing at the end of the month. What a whirlwind!
