Well - we made it! We finally bought and moved into our very first house together. Seth is a second-time home buyer, but it was my first time and our first time as a married couple to make such a huge purchase and investment.
We moved last Wednesday which was the craziest day on earth. It literally felt like there weren't enough hours in the day and no matter how fast and frantic we moved, we weren't moving along fast enough for an unnamed buyer and her real estate agent, AKA: Satan. I won't elaborate or else all 3 people that read my blog will know I'm a terrible person.
Anyway, we are loving our new home and I will post pictures soon. We've got stuff put in place for the most part, but still have quite a few odds and ends to put away. The only snag was that our old sectional sofa would NOT fit into the bonus room. Seth and I are going to take a day trip to IKEA in Virginia this Saturday and buy new furniture for that room. Should be a fun trip. I heart IKEA and this is the perfect kind of room to go to IKEA for.
We met several neighbors last night and they all seem very cool. A tad older than us, but not like mom and dad old - maybe late 30s, early 40s. I'm happy to hear from each of them that the neighbors are nice and they even told us about some get-togethers they like to have at different parts of the year. Maybe they'll help Seth and I branch out and be more social.
I'll write more later and try to post pictures. I need to find the camera first!
