Well, I said it last week - I've got some huge news to share! Yesterday's Wordless Wednesday was a HUGE hint, so I'm sure you've guessed by now. Yup, it's true, the DH and I are moving!!! YIPPIE!!!!
We've been talking about moving for well over a year now, we just hadn't found the right house until now. I can't even remember how many houses we looked at before we found this one, but this one is perfect! As soon as we walked in one Saturday we knew it was just right. Like Goldilocks and the three bears, we looked at houses that were too small and some that were too big, some that needed too much work, and some that didn't need any. Finally we found a house that is the perfect size so that we can expand our family sometime down the road, and one that needs a little bit of work done to it but nothing that needs to be done right away.
Once our offer on the new house was accepted, the DH and I wasted no time putting the townhouse on the market. From the time our sellers agent walked into the house so we could sign the papers, we were on the market in less than a week. From the time the house was on the market, we had the townhouse under contract in 7 days! 7 DAYS!!!!! So it's finally official. At the end of April we'll have to say goodbye to our first house and find a place to live for a month until we move into the new house in the beginning of June. Luckily we have tons of family and friends in the area so I'm sure we'll be able to find a place (or two) to stay during May.
While this is a very exciting time for the both of us, we've got tons of packing to do. I'm also excited because a new, larger house means I'll get to finally start some furniture refinishing projects I've been dreaming of. Oh - and I'll finally have some blank walls I can paint!!! YIPPIE!!!
