The Offer is On the Table.

So Sean and I do this things...where we plunge right into things head first. So yes, we've recently discovered we're having a baby. You think that'd be enough on our plate for a while right?


Today, we put an offer in on a house.

And they accepted.

We're going to be homeowners.

Words cannot even describe my excitement!!! 

We're going to be owners of a 2100 sq ft colonial (4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths), just a 10 blocks south of where we live now. She was built in 1947, but there's only been 2 owners so far. It has a brand new roof, water heater, and HVAC system, which means no ridiculously expensive things to buy for a few years. Everything is outdated in it, but it still has gorgeous charm and beauty and this way we can leave our own mark on the home - we're smitten. Plus, it has a partially finished basement too! Here's our new love:

Somethings we'll have to tackle? It has knob and tube electrical, so we'll have to replace that along the line (though it has the recommended amps, which is good). The hardwoods (which are almost the whole house) need to be refinished (but they're livable). Paint. Lots of paint. The downstairs half bath is blue. Like, royal blue tile. And we'll eventually need new windows. All things that can be lived with and saved up for.

Now. The countdown begins until August 6th. Our earnest money is down,

It'll be an adventure.
