"i think its just darling."
so said my little 4-year old friend zoe after seeing our new home for the first time.

it has been a whirl-wind couple weeks. we went from thinking we would miss out on the home we wanted, to qualifying for the mortgage, having our offer accepted, making a deal to rent from the sellers until closing, and now we're MOVING IN!!

yup, we got the house!!! and i have a "tour" of sorts for you. :)
i'm soooo excited!!

i'm in love with these hardwood floors! :D

this used to be a garage. its been finished and has its own bathroom too. its going to be chris' music studio. :)

so there it is... our cute little place at 43 Hemlock road. :)
we're moving in tonight. i'm still in shock, a little overwhelmed, but so excited.
chris has started working for Quincy Foods driving combine for the summer. last night he didn't get home until 10:30. yikes! that's a 15 hour day. the money will be good, especially with buying our house, but i just wish he was around to help me make all these little decisions.
but things are working out.
i'm so happy.
excited to get some stuff moved in.
i also want to take a minute to thank my dad for all of his help and financial advice through this process. he's been such a help and support. its been nice knowing that i can call him whenever i need to with questions or whatever... THANK YOU DAD!!!
