It is crazy.. We looked at this house over a month ago! 

And this is exactly how the story went.. 

Justin and I decided to start looking at houses.. well that became my full time job! Every second I was looking at houses, contacting my realtor  or asking my parents! 

We went through a couple houses, and they were all big NO’S right away! Then there came a white two story house.. I fell in love with it! (I was never a big fan of two story houses, I blame that on my dad). Well they day I saw the house it went off the market… 

I was so sad! Well a couple weeks later, it came back on the market, and we were one of the first people to go look at it.. and we even put in an offer.. But they didn’t accept it.. 

Heartbroken once again!! 

After that happened.. I slowed down on the house hunting for awhile.. Then one day I saw this cute Ranch.. I called my realtor up, and we went to look at it right away. 
We get there, walk in the door and my realtor told me that there is an offer on the house, but it is not accepted yet (my stomach turns). 

So we pretty much had 5 mintes to go through the house, and decide if we want to put in an offer!! 

Well I LOVED the house!! WAY more than the two story we lost a month ago then!! 

So we put in the offer.. We had to wait almost a week to find out if they accepted the offer or not! Can I say that was the LONGEST week of my life!! 

But, It all worked out in the end and I got my dream starter house!!

And now the time has come, WE CLOSE ON THURSAY and get the keys three days later!! 

I am Nervous and Excited all at once!! 


I know this is a huge step in my life, and I can’t wait to get started! 


If anyone has any moving/packing adivice I would Love to know! 


I told myself I was going to start packing over the weekend, and I packed one box and quit… I need some motovation! (I’m sure once I have those keys in my hand, I’ll be the fastest packer ever!)

  • We bought our current home two years ago. It was a newly built home and we were actually the first people to look at it. Anyways, I moved all of the little stuff by myself. I packed as many boxes and Rubbermaid containers as I could and loaded up my car to bring them all to the house. I had most of the little stuff moved in a day. The big stuff we had to wait on since the hubby needed help.

    My advice is to definitely label the boxes so you know which room they go in to right off bat. I would unpack as much as I could on my trip so I could reuse the box or bin.

    Congrats on the new house! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I know exactly how it feels to lose a house – I thought I had lost mine because it went off the market before I could put in an offer on it. God truly knows what's best, though, because I ended up getting my house and I love it! It's a great feeling when you finally get those keys and get all that paperwork signed. Congratulations!!!

  • How exciting! Congrats on the new place! Before you move get rid of anything you do not want or use!!! Moving makes you accumulate so much stuff so I always make a point to donate and purge as much as I can to not only make moving easier but unpacking easier! And LABEL your boxes so that they can go right into the room you want without thought. Lastlyโ€ฆhave fund and enjoy it! Don't stress and take lots of pictures! I love looking back at my old homes and on moving day! Good luck!!!

  • Woohoo! Congratulations! I have never much cared for two-story houses, either, but I have seen some pretty ones. Post some pictures after you move!

  • Yay congrats girl! Can't wait to see the pictures!

  • CONGRATS SWEETIE. I know you're stoked. I agree with Niki. I've never moved into my own place before. But when i did move away for 7 yrs I just had certain stuff and all my stuff could fit in the vehicle I had at the time but that's not counting dressers and beds and such. b/c I didnt have to take none of that.

    If you havent stopped by today girl..would love for you to link up.

  • CONGRATULATIONS! That is very exciting news and a busy, happy time in your life. Good luck with the packing!
