Well, when you know, you know, and as soon as we walked in to 601 Eagles Nest Drive, we knew that it was our home.
You can see pictures here. There are some changes to make (like removing the interesting decorations, and toning down the lighting fixtures a bit). But this house has so much that you don't see in the pictures. There's a sprinkler system, an alarm system, speakers wired throughout the house, an extra bonus room (it's actually in the pictures), 3 bedrooms, an interesting little nook in the Master bedroom, lots of closet space, and just so much more than what we thought we would get. I think my favorite part of it is the kitchen! It's so big! And the appliances were actually made at some point after I was born, which is a big upgrade from our current apartment. I also love that it opens up into a big living room :). Another huge part of what we were looking for is a shaded backyard. As you can see in the pictures, it's a good size backyard, and there's more yard over by the driveway. Eventually, we're going to extend the fence out.
We are so excited!! Because of our excellent credit, paper work is going fast and furious. We made an offer on the house last Saturday, we were under contract by Sunday, and assuming everything goes well, we'll close on June 30th :)
I've been excited since last Saturday, but I didn't want to get too excited until the inspection was done. And we got that done today. So now I feel like it's really going to happen.
It will be such a blessing to have double the space of our apartment. Holly will have room to play and run. Chaselyn will have room for her toys. Stanton and I will have room to move without tripping over all the stuff the other two require. And, I get to have my Christmas tree this year!!! And I get to put lights on our house!
We'll have more pictures as we actually get to be in the house.
Thanks to all of you who prayed for us during this big decision.
