Made the offer!

Well, we made the offer on our first home. I found one that was just what we needed. I have a mixture of emotions about all of it. Butterflies, because it's such a huge commitment, but also whether or not our offer will be accepted. I am a ball of nervous energy.

This home is exactly what we were looking for. It satisfies everyone's wants. Here are the photos:

Much more at

It is a small home, but it really maximizes the space and it has a very open floor plan. The outdoor living space is GORGEOUS!! Plus, daddy's fav, a stand alone fully permitted guest house/office! It has a pool and two large side yards with garden boxes on each side. A grassy area for the kids to play that is shaded by a tree. The patio is nice, stamped concrete. It really is the perfect starter home. It's beautiful! Fingers crossed we'll get it. Trying not to get too excited, you never know.

Well it's not ours yet, so don't be hate'n ;) Going to hate the mortgage payment, that's for sure. Could probably get the same house in Texas for a quarter of the price. You pay for the weather here and it's $$$. I actually like seasons too. Not in the cards for us to move out of town though. We have good schools here.

We're all about the good schools too!

I'm so excited for you guys! Here's to hoping both of our families are celebrating Christmas in our new homes!

OK, I love pink and purple as much as any girl, but there is a point where there is TOO much. I think this house found it.

Aside from that... I LOVE it, it's an awesome house.

P.S. Now I need to get to todays posta nd see if you got it!!

Yeah, it's a cute house. What? You don't like the pink and purple? I was going to make the offer contingent on them painting every room that way! *wink*

Hey, I've seen worse. The first house we looked at that day had mouse poo everywhere! It looked like it was an infestation. I'd take pink and purple rooms over poo any day!
