New House

So DH and I are buying our first house!

It all very exciting, but very busy when you think about all the things that need to happen. So far we have signed the contract, gotten a certified check for the earnest money, called to schedule the home inspection, filled out the loan application, called to have the utilities turned on, resigned the contract, this time in blue ink, got another check for the earnest money, $1,000 instead of $500, picked out a washer and dryer, looked at stoves, and looked at quite a few other thinks we will want to get for the new place like a lawnmower, grill, etc.
The house is a little on the small side, but it has some nice features, like the built-in dressers in the front bedroom on the second floor. The other bedroom on the second floor has been bumped out so the walls are not angled like they normally would be for a cape cod.
I'm really going to like having a yard too. Since it is now summer, I will have several months to work on the foundation of the landscaping and really plan it out well before the spring comes with all its flowers and colors. Oh, that reminds me, I really should get some bulbs to plant so we can have some nice early spring flowers.

Anyhow, we still have lots to do before the closing. Not to mention the packing and moving.
Saturday, our friends are having a painting party and I'll will be helping out in the hopes of gaining some brownie points for when we move at the end of the month.
