WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!! Our first house! It just closed today so it's totally ours! *Happy dance* I'm so excited!!
We've been keeping our eye out on the market in Indiana for a few months and it seemed like everything we looked at just sold right underneath us! It was hilarious! And a little stressful. I totally thought it would be like: "Oh, I like this house, I'll buy that one!" Not even. Apparently there are other people in Kokomo, and they want to buy houses, too. Did not see that coming. But we found one that we're so happy with, I can't wait to see it in person. Oh yeah. I haven't seen it in person yet...I don't know if that makes us adventurous or just stupid, haha! :O) Luckily, we had some great friends check it all out, and they know what they're doing.
It was built in 1915 so it has all that lovely character, and my favorite part: original wood trim! ^^^ Isn't that gorgeous? I actually really love white trim in houses, because it feels so light and airy. But there is no way I could ever paint over 100 year old wood trim. So I'll have to settle for white walls and gorgeous complimentary trim. I think I can suffer through that. ;o) We'll have a few things to paint, and lots of wallpaper to remove, (yaaaay.) but really the house is in great condition for being so old, we don't have much to change. And there is even room for a craft studio! And a fenced yard. And a playhouse. And a two car garage. And a nice long driveway for skating. Basically, I can't wait to get there. Less than three weeks!! :O)
Boy, we get a house today, a cute little boy on Friday...we're getting all the things this week! Thank you, God for these blessings.
Oh! And thank you so much for your bracelet orders, guys!! I sold all out of the trios (well, the circle bracelets, more specifically) and now have enough to cover our website costs for the first year. Yay!! I can't wait to get started with setting that up. Play time!! (If you're late to this party, you can still get the other two bracelet styles, in the etsy shop!)
So, if you need me, I'll just be pinning all the new house things!! See you this weekend, when you meet Ace for the first time! :O)
