We bought a house!

Yay, me! We have been in our current home 20 years. It was great to raise our son in but we didn't really have anywhere to entertain (think going out our bedroom slider to get to the small deck and a TINY kitchen and living room!)

A gal that teaches in our district had the sudden opportunity to build a new home so she put hers on the market (we've always admired the house). She listed it for sale by owner Sunday and we made our offer Monday night. It is 2050 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, two living rooms (one is huge) and a brand new above ground pool with the perfect backyard for entertaining!

It is a 25 year old home and we probably paid a bit more than we should have but I don't care. The only downer is that the owners need to wait until their new home is complete and they move in until we can move into theirs (October sometime) so they aren't homeless. It's fine with us because we need to update a few things in our home in order to sell it. No pool parties until next summer...bummer!

I have been praying for 2-3 years for this and I feel truly blessed. Finally the home I can have family and friends over and truly feel comfortable!
