movin' on up

Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Way back on my birthday, I kept telling the BF that that day would be a magical day.

He didn't believe me. Well, on that day we decided to bid on a house and ended up negotiating a deal with the sellers. As long as no other major problems arise, we will be moving into this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom house sometime in March.



If you thought me living in the apartment with the BF was a wild ride, just wait until we both move into a house. There is WAY more to clean in 1,600 sq. feet than in our 1,000 sq. foot apartment and more decisions to be made, too. We are talking paint colors, furniture and flooring options and renovating entire rooms.

Now, this could get interesting.....

Congrats on the new place. Picking paint colors is so much fun, kind of makes me want to buy my own place too.

Very cute! Congrats and good luck. When I had my down payment check cut for the house I bought a few years ago, I nearly passed out. It was scary but worth it!
