The house is ours! We closed last Tuesday!

Everything went pretty well. There were a couple numbers wrong on a few documents so we had to wait for the bank to fax over new, corrected ones. But that's not a big deal when you leave with a HOUSE! We were both so excited that we started painting right away Tuesday night! We were there last night until 1am too. It's easy to lose track of the time when you are so excited!

The neighbors on both sides of us came over right away and welcomed us to the neighborhood. We have a young family with 3 girls on one side, and a 20-something guy and his girlfriend on the other. It seems like a really friendly neighborhood! I already have so much pride for that house. It was built in 1950, and nobody has lived there in a needs a little (or a ton) of TLC. But we are ready to take on the challenge! We have already done SO MUCH to that house, and we've only owned it for two days!! We have the entire dining room/living room/hallway painted. We have the lawnmower built, flowers planted EVERYWHERE, a tree trimmed, and I bought new shrubs to be planted tomorrow!! I can't wait!!

I love this picture, you can see how freaking excited he is to have this house!!

Rex isn't so sure about his new digs quite yet...

Time to get some sleep since I have a feeling it's going to be a looooooong night tomorrow!
