We’re Homeowners

After sitting through a 3.5 hour long closing yesterday afternoon, we’re officially homeowners!


After closing we went to the house, but after walking through the house several times while we were house hunting and parking in visitor parking in the neighborhood in order to do so, it felt so weird to pull into the driveway, open the garage, and park inside.  I’m not sure it’ll sink in that we’re homeowners until we move in, which won’t be for another week and a half.  In the meantime, we’ll be spending quite a bit of time cleaning, painting, and prepping the house for our big move.

Since our plan is to spend the long holiday weekend working on the house, things will be quiet here on the blog for a couple of days.  I’ll post updates on Instagram and Twitter, so be sure to follow me on Social Media!

QOTD: For those of you who are homeowners, how long did it take to sink in that you were a homeowner?

  5. Congratulations! Welcome to the world of “NOW what has to be fixed?!?” Can’t wait to see the pics and make sure Riley has her own room! 🙂

  7. Know remember, I homeowners work is never done. One you get the house all decorated and set up the way you want it, you will find something else you want to do or something that needs to be fixed or changed…..lol I hope Preston has a big toolbox!

  8. That first word should be “Now”. Just a typo.

    HUGE congrats!! What a beautiful house! I can’t wait to experience all of this for myself. It will probably take a very long time to sink in when it finally happens!

    Congrats! It’ll probably be surreal even after you move in. The first night will be awesome!

    Congrats on your new home! Hope you have fun with the decorating and painting 🙂 We moved into our new house a little over 2 weeks ago. It feels like home now, even though we still have some unpacking to do. One good tip I tried was unpacking and setting up the kitchen first. It was kind of a pain but made it possible for us to have meals at home right away.

    • Thanks for the tip. After four days of take out, we’re definitely ready to have a fully functioning kitchen again! We’ve been spending all of our time at the house, and haven’t started packing the kitchen in our apartment yet. Time to get on that!

  15. Congrats!!! What a cute home, too 🙂 I love the windows! Best of luck with all the packing and moving
