Homeowner

On Friday papers were signed, keys were exchanged and I became a homeowner for the very first time!

We did one last walk through to make sure everything was still as it should be then headed to the title company to sign all 80 bazillion papers. I definitely got practice signing my new last name. The whole closing went very smoothly and a lot quicker than I anticipated. Kristian has bought two houses in the past and he said this one by far was the smoothest. The best part was that our mortgage lender over-estimated (on purpose) the amount of money we would need at closing so we got a nice little refund check that we were able to go shopping with.

Once we finished at the title company we went back to the house to run around and just enjoy the fact that we now owned the house we wanted so badly.

Here I am holding up my new keys (which you can't see). It was 70 degrees on Friday! In February! It was a beautiful day to buy a house. One thing that I didn't put together until Friday was that our house number is 3080  which is a combination of my current age (30) and the year I was born (80). A sign it was meant to be perhaps?

Here we are right before Kristian carried me over the threshold. I think I will make him do this for all of the houses we live in in the future.

We decided to spend Friday night at the new house with the bare minimum supplies we would need including an air mattress, sheets, an Ipod, champagne and a box to eat our Chinese food on. It was so much fun camping out in our new house though I was very happy to sleep in my bed again the next night at our condo. The movers come this Friday to take all our furniture to the new place.


It's been a busy weekend of cleaning and starting to move items over. The cable guy came yesterday so now we have cable and Internet in the new house and we started meeting our neighbors and so far all seem really nice. It's going to be a crazy week finishing up the packing at the condo and moving this weekend but I can't wait to get all settled in.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Moving is exciting on its own, but to your first house is an amazing, incredible feeling. I remember spending our first night in our house, and hanging out in it without any furniture. And now, it's home.

Good luck with all the moving and prepping and setting everything up! I can't wait to see pics once you get settled.

Wow! That was fast! Congratulations! Enjoy getting your home all set up. I don't know if it's going to be the same for you, but I've had a hard time putting holes in "my" walls now... I don't wanna mess anything up! lol It's made the decorating process a little slow going. ;)
