And the Winner is...

Tada! Our new home! We made an offer on Wednesday and it was accepted the next evening. We have been back to the house twice since then to show our families. Both times, we left feeling more excited than before.

We learned that the property has mature fruit trees, an herb garden, a very convenient Gold's Gym, and quick highway access (all of which we hadn't realized at the time of purchase).

I love this house because it needs no immediate work, but with time, we can do projects that will make it even more special--like a garage and pretty landscaping. Furniture will come with time, and it will be a fun challenge pinching our pennies to make it happen.

Thanks for being a part of this experience with us! We move in in two months and hope you will come to visit!

Oh my gosh! It is such a cute house! With great neighbors too, or so I hear! :) Rick and I are out of our chairs excited for you guys! And when I told Boston he did the half lip curl, tilt the head to the side thing, but as soon as he head Doug's name, he too was excited! Love it! And I noticed that the kitchen was white too!

Oh I'm so excited for you!! A place of your own! Sounds like you got a great balance of all the things you need. What a relief you didn't have to sell your other place (we're working on that right now)... We're going to try and come out again for Thanksgiving, so we'll come see it!!
