It's been one week!

We've done a lot in one week and finally feeling a bit settled. Darrin and I are still kind of in shock that the house is actually "ours" and we aren't renting it. We can park our car in the garage now and can see just a few more boxes to unload. I have so many plans for this house, but after Christmas the first big project is painting! I've done a few swatches so far, but not in love yet. Since, Darrin says he doesn't paint... his project is getting the hot tub ready for New Years!

Officially homeowners!

After a long five month process, we signed our life away last night! We got to unlock that red door to our first home and it felt soooo good! It was a very stressful week. We never expected the hassle and drama in the last stages of getting a loan. We have some people that will probably never work with each other again, but they made it happen for us and we are so grateful. Christmas came a week early for us and we are very proud that we did it!
Bubbly and pizza to celebrate!
