So after years of apartment living, Ben and I bought our FIRST HOUSE exactly one week ago today!!
We chose to keep the whole house-hunt semi-secret since we'd been disappointed by other houses that caved on us last minute. We were too afraid to get our hopes up by telling everyone we actually owned a house until we officially signed every paper and physically were handed our keys. But it was SO hard to not talk about it!
One of the craziest things is that Ben's work decided to send him to a convention in Orlando, FL the SAME WEEK. He's never been sent anywhere before and they had to have him there the day after we closed! But the best part is that I was allowed to come too! We signed the papers Monday, and Tuesday at 4am we woke up, drove to the airport and spent the week in Orlando! I am so grateful that we had that relaxing week together!
I have so much more to share but I am on the verge of EXPLODING from excitement that I can FINALLY go to Lowes and buy as much paint as I want so that I can FINALLY live in a room that isn't some shade of beige! I'm seriously freaking out I'm so excited!!!!
So be sure to check out the blog the rest of this week for sneak peeks of the inside of our home!
