We {Finally} bought a house!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to write this post. It's been frustrating but I can officially say, we are under contract and we're buying a house! We started looking a week after we listed our house. And I found a house we loved! But at the time couldn't offer on it because our house didn't even have an offer. Well a week later our house got an offer, and I started to REALLY look at houses. But I wanted something very specific and couldn't find it in our price range. Besides that house I saw from the beginning. Anyways took Jake through it and two days later we put an offer on it. And this is what the douchebag responded with "I decline your offer and decided I am going to take it off the market, put in landscaping and raise the price" I was really sad and kinda had a break down, cause this year has been rough. But then...

we kept looking and looking and couldn't find anything, and I thought we would have to live with my in laws forever and it kinda freaked me out. Then one night I got an email from the website that shows me new listings and there was this adorable house. I looked at all the pictures and I was like "Uhm, we have to go see this house ASAP!" Because a) all the good houses get snatched up FAST B) it dropped its price C) I wanted to know where I was going to live! So I text my Realtor and made plans to meet with her the next day. I didn't want to get my hopes up cause I had been disappointed before. But I walked through it and was like k, this is almost perfect. Jake needs to see it, so we went back THAT night and Jake loved it. So that night we put an offer on it. THEY ACCEPTED! I was thrilled. There has been a few bumps but we are under contract and its like a 95% chance its going to be our home. We have the inspection next week and that is the only thing that could change but I highly doubt it! So I am so happy! Here it is:
Bad quality but you get the idea! Adorable right? Now let me tell you all the fun details. So it's a huge lot (well huge to us) it's .28 acres and its already landscaped all purty like! It had a sand box, play set, and shed in the backyard that comes WITH the house! Then it has a good size deck we get to have bbqs on and sit and watch the kids play. Jake's only requirement is that he would have enough room for a Basketball hoop and court. If you can see where that RV is, is basically where we putting it. (I know weird, but we all have to make sacrifices. It has 3 beds and two baths right now. But it has a completely unfinished basement where we will put two bedrooms, a bathroom, family room, and storage room. It has an island kitchen (my fav) and a huge walk in pantry! And a fireplace in the family room! Then we found out the neighborhood is incredible and a great place for our kids to grow up. Plus the elementary school AND gas station (you know for my drinks haha) are in walking distance! So ya we are pretty excited! I can't wait to give you the official tour, but that will be awhile from now!  

We move in the 2nd of August. It's such a stressful time. Definitely hard, but we are incredibly excited! And I was thinking last night how blessed we are to own an amazing home for our family! I am feeling so so blessed! Can't wait!
