We might be totally crazy, but this past week we closed on our first house. We were going to hold off until Spring considering we were in a lease, expecting our first baby and (hello!) old man winter is closing in. Not the ideal time to uproot for the third time in a year, but, as they say, we're hoping this time is a charm. We looked for a few months, would get our hopes up, lose out on the deal and then move on to the next. The house we ended up buying was literally the one and only house Kim ever said he'd never consider looking at. It's just a few blocks away from our rental house and every time we walked by, for no particular reason, he cringed. He hasn't done that to another house. Ever. Coincidence that it's the one we ended up buying? I think not! It's true that it has a lot of work to do but once we went inside, visualized some potential and decided we could make it work before the baby came, we jumped on it. Fast forward to one month later, we own the place!
It's definitely a fixer upper but we are up to the challenge (it's okay to laugh, point your finger at us and say we have no idea what we are getting ourselves up to with a new baby and house - I kinda know it!). This blog has been pretty quiet for a few months, err a year, but I'm hoping to reboot her with the pending DIY projects and baby boy. He'll be here in a month, I can't even believe how much time flies. Can't wait to see what the upcoming months have in store. Stay tuned!
