Closing Day!!!!

AAAHHHHH!!!!

Y'all, I have BIG news!!!

I must confess, I've been keeping a little secret the last couple of months!  I know, I know, secrets don't make friends but, this was one for just Matt & I and our family & IRL close friends to know.

Matt & I BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!

I know! I know!  Insane!  We're getting married in just 20-something days, etc., etc.

Yes, life is absolutely crazy right now & it's not exactly how we planned it buuut, it just all happened to work out this way.  Our original plan was to wait until after the wedding & Matt found a job to begin looking for a house to buy.  Well, we discovered at the end of February that the lease on our rental house was up March 13.... errr!?  We talked to a very dear family friend & realtor who then referred us to a loan officer.  We discussed our options for buying a house before & after  we get married & like I said, it just all happened to work.  The numbers worked.  And if we could find the perfect house (I use perfect lightly), in a descent neighborhood & in our price range... within enough time before the wedding, we would jump on it.

Well, we tried... about 4 or 5 times & houses were just flying off the market before we could even get there to see them!  This house was the second offer we had put in & it was a tense 24 hrs before we heard back from the seller.  Luckily, they accepted our offer, we've had a GREAT real estate agent & an awesome loan officer!  In just over 3 weeks we have placed our offer, gone through ALL of the loan stuff & have signed the dotted line just yesterday afternoon!

These pictures were taken the other day when we stopped by to show my Dad & brother


It's an older home with great bones.  There's definitely some updating that will be done (which is exactly what we were looking for) but, we'll wait until after the wedding to start on any major projects!


We already met one of our neighbors & he is SUPER nice!  We're excited to paint (yes, we're painting just a little bit), get moved in, get married & start our new lives in our new home!

Yaaaay for closing day!  (Awesome gift our loan officer gave to us!)

I'll be back later with some more pictures of the inside!

Have a great day y'all!!!
