The deal is almost done! :)

So we heard back from the bank today and we both finally agreed on something. One of the things was to have everything go by their timetable... which is very fast. They are ready to get it off their hands. So pretty much we have 3 1/2 weeks to get everything done. Appraisal, Inspection, Loan through and whatever else there is. They want it closed on August 6th which is 2 days before Jon goes to Canada for a week. We went and looked more in depth tonight and I am so in love with this house. I took some pictures, but they really don't do it justice. We are going to have so much fun here. So here is a sneek peek. I didn't get one of the outside of the house itself or the yard. Jon said we have to get it cleaned up first. So it will have to be a surprise. Stay tuned... (in the future) We will definitely have our hands full for awhile. But are going to be proud homeowners.... FINALLY!!!!!! One thing I can say is that the Lord has us in mind. This house pretty much fell into our laps. Which helps with doubt. If I had searched for this house I would probably wonder if it was the right thing, but seriously we weren't looking and I just happened to come across it on a totally different site that I never look at. From start to finish of this process will be a few days over a month. That is a miracle in my eyes. I am so thankful for the Lord's continuous blessings.

Right side of front room. My piano will go against the stairs. I am excited to get it back. There is a ton of space under the stairs. We decided it will be a great place for toys. The stove is gas!!! JT loves it already we might be in trouble

The left side of front room where the couch and tv will go.
Pretty self explanatory. The pantry is my favorite though. I should have gotten a pic of it. It is HUGE!!!!!

Master bath. See the cute vanity area. I might actually use it.

JT and Trey playing in the laundry room. It will be nice to have more than a closet for laundry. "One day" I will get front loading.

The other side of the master bath. It need a little work, but shouldn't be bad. Like another mirror. Not much.

Steep steep stairs.

1/2 bath upstairs in one of the bedrooms. It is just so cute. Everything about this house is cute. It really has some old charm. I can't wait. I don't think August 6th will come fast enough. Time to get packing. :)

It looks so cute. I'm happy for you guys. It's always so fun to move into something new and decorate. I like change most of the time as far as homes go. Good Luck on everything you have to get done.
Believe me the 6th can't come soon enough for me either. It will get me that much closer to the end.

Wow! One month, what a whirlwind! In a good way! Congrats. It looks like a very cute house. Moving sucks though, I hate packing. Really, really hate packing. But, unpacking in your very first new house makes it all worth it.

Congratulations from us too! I love the house. It's clean and nice on the inside, and has so much potential on the outside. The large covered porch is especially nice and is going to be such an asset.
