Made an offer!!

We made an offer on a house we love. One thing I am discovering in this process is that I am terrified and excited all at the same time. This is the start of a wonderful chapter in our adult lives. It is absolutely time to make this leap. It also is the start of huge responsibility. If the dish washer breaks we have to fix it. I love that we will have something beautiful to show for all of Hub's hard work. It is way past time for him to feel like the money he earns goes to something fun and beautiful and all ours. I am excited to have a place for the girls to play. I am excited to have more than one bathroom! I am excited for not hearing stomping above our heads at all hours of the night. I am so excited for actually using my closet to store clothes rather than tools and Christmas decor and books! I am terrified. Have you noticed how expensive a good water heater is? And window treatments and paint colors and flooring. Appliances can knock you on your tail. We need this step and this journey into home ownership. Wish us luck!


  1. Lila, don't panic. I am in my second home and one thing i have found is that it is yours. As long as you have the basics other things can wait. If you don't like the curtains, it's ok if you can't change them right away. You are building on something that is yours. You don't have to have a timetable to get everything to the way you want it. You have years to make it your home. Sit back with hubby and the kids and smile, because it belongs to you.

    Good luck with the Your new home.

  2. Good luck. You will feel the same way when you outgrow that house and move on to the next one.


We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.

If you have an opinion share it but know if it is going to cause hurt to someone we care about we will not approve it.

Most of all have fun!!
