BIG NEWS!

Big, big news in our household.




As of last night...




Matt and I...




Officially...




Own our own home!!


We signed the contract yesterday and our house will begin construction next month. And by mid-September we will be moving into our very first home.

Since it's being built, I don't have any pictures quite yet. But I intend on heading over to the model this week to steal some much need photos! Can't wait to show you!

So what am I most excited about?? Hands down...the kitchen. It has granite, a gourmet island, and a DOUBLE OVEN!! Can you even comprehend what I can do with a double oven?? Like, bake two things at once people. For a cake decorator this is going to be such a time saver!

Oh, and my OWN walk in closet! No more sharing with a boy!

And a powder room with one of those gorgeous pedestal sink!?! I love those :)

And a super cool fireplace with brick going up to the ceiling!

And a dining room big enough to fit a dining room table! Guess I should get a dining room table now, huh?


The stress of buying this home was more than I expected. But I am comfortable with our decision (although I almost fainted when I wrote the check last night....) and am moving into the stage where I am just completely excited about how our home will look when it's complete. I can't wait!

Within the next few weeks we are going to be making tons of decisions about colors, cabinets, hardwood, everything. I'm going to need so much advice! So put on your decorating caps ladies. The fun is just about to begin!

Ack!! Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. And how fun to get to pick and choose things and make it yours. How wonderful.

If you need a dining room table, I highly suggest consignment stores and places like that--and any type of wholesalers. We got ours for a fraction of what we should have paid and even though a dining room table is something that should last you a long time, we rarely use ours (eat in the kitchen).

YAY!! I'm so happy for you. I can't wait to see pictures and the progress!

Yay! Congrats! The house sounds absolutely fabulous!! We almost built a house before we moved to KC. Had it all designed, everything picked out down to the door knobs. It's a lot of work, but a totaly blast knowing it will be exactly what you want!
