Guess What!

I am now a homeowner!

We found out a few hours ago that the bank approved our new offer. Now we have to sign the official paperwork, and then we will close in 30-45 days.

I am so excited! The house needs SO much work. I can't wait to take "before" pictures. You're all going to be amazed at just how dirty shelf paper can get!

The main thing I'm excited about is the decorating, of course. Choosing paint colors, carpet colors, light fixtures, cabinet hardware, etc. Nope, we're not keeping the chandelier ;-)

I have a picture of the front of the house from the listing...



It is definitely a cute little house. It's bigger than it looks from the outside, too.

Alright, I'm off to Lowes.com to look at light fixtures!
