We closed on our house!!!

(I think this means we can finally stop holding our breath – phew!)

Okay, so maybe the word word homeowners is a wee bit of a stretch…. the bank actually owns more of the home then we do! But we own a nice little chunk of it. And it is ours. No landlord. No pets on approval. No permission needed to paint the walls.

Sweet Bliss 🙂

Gateway to our backyard… (I adore all the old oak trees!!)



These two pics are of the backyard. The house has tons of plants and looks like a bit of a jungle in spots….. we plan to put two raised beds for gardening in the backyard and fence it all in so the kids & critters stay inside 🙂 In a few months it will be our own little suburban oasis! 

And if you'd like to see more pictures, click here. We took pictures when we were house hunting back in April, when this house was still a *hope & dream*.  The house hasn't been updated since the 70's…. which also means it hasn't blown away in a hurricane since the 70's….. and just think of all the blogs you'll be reading of the renovation process!

  4. Congrats!! I know you said it has not been updated since the 70’s but the kitchen cabinets look to be back in style. Just change the wall stuff and the hardware and you will be in business. What a great house. I am so happy for you guys. I miss you we should set up a time to talk. I can’t believe you have cell phones!!!
