So I am finally getting around to blogging about the new house. We’ve been very busy this past week as you can imagine. Monday we closed on both houses and everything went very smoothly. This whole process has gone very smooth for us. We were able to gather enough funds to be able to put down 20% on the new house and avoid PMI. We’re pretty proud of that accomplishment. Go us!
Anyway, here’s some rambling info. about the new house. It’s huge! And we have two bathrooms and that has been awesome! The patio is great and Mikey has been staying out there playing for hours every day. We have a privacy fence so I can actually lay out in the backyard and get some sun, hypothetically speaking of course. The microwave is crazy. We have a garbage disposal, a doorbell, and a garage! These are all things that are totally new to us. It is all just such a wonderful change.
Would you like to see some pictures? Sure you would.
First of all here is the front and back of the house.

And inside the house…
My office/catch all room
We are planning on ditching the cutesy wall paper and yellow paint as soon as possible. We are also planning on getting rid of the yellow tile counter tops and replacing it with granite or quartz. That will take a little more time.

My mom didn’t really have room for this little kid table anymore so she brought it over for us. We need to get some picture up on the wall and a rug. We’re also getting a new tv stand and a coffee table soon.

living room again-this paint color is atrocious. It's worse in person.

Mikey's room is so cute! I just love it!

So that’s it for now. We’ll be getting some new furniture in the next few months. We’ll also be doing quite a bit of painting. We’re so happy about this house! I think we’re still in shock that we’re here and that it’s actually our home. It feels like a dream.
