We bought a house!

Well, we never thought that house hunting would go so smoothly, but we found a house that we LOVE!  I guess I watch too much HGTV, but I was expecting the experience to be a lot more dramatic or difficult. The house is in a great location for both of our jobs, has a great layout with a lot of potential and has a wonderful yard.  We made an offer on Tuesday and found out today that it was accepted. So, here goes nothing as we enter the craziness that is preparing for closing over the next couple of months.  

Here's the floor plan below... I'm super excited about the formal living and dining room, yay for a lot of space to decorate! The kitchen needs updating and that will be our biggest project before we move in, but it's a great space. 

So, it looks like I'll be taking this blog in a more decorating/DIY direction in the next few months. Hope you're excited to follow along and watch our progress, I know we are! :) 


  1. Wow, big congrats! It looks like it has such a great layout (I'm a sucker for seeing floor plans!)

  2. The layout is AWESOME!! I bet Kevin's going to enjoy having a man room in the bonus room/bedroom over the garage.

  3. I <3 the deck! :-D and yes! plenty of space and i know you will have SO MUCH fun updating the kitchen and adding your own flare to it! and i think the house is so youuu...the picture just looks like you belong there :-D and little fluffy darcy trotting around in the yard<3 it's VERY happy! CONGRATS!

  4. Yey so exciting! Love the layout and the house is so nice, big! Congratulations on being homeowners! Enjoy this fun time!

    We just closed on our first house on 2/15 and moved in this past weekend. We're enjoying making it our own. It feels so nice! :) I'll try to post about it soon!

  5. Congrats on finding a house you both love so smoothly!

  6. Great! Did you have any prior experience in house hunting? And yeah, it can get pretty tedious, so it's a great stroke of luck that you guys found a home quickly.
