Home sweet home.

I'm full of happiness and excitement today, as Brad and I have made a HUGE purchase today....
WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! (well, we have a contract on a house!)
Anyways, we've been looking for the past month or so, but let me tell you, we were getting discouraged. We got pre-approved and all, but we made a decision to find a nice house under $140,000. And that is NOT an easy feat - at least for me, because I'm extremely picky. We working with a WONDERFUL realtor, Mr. Justin Holder. I really couldn't have asked for anyone better. Justin explained everything in detail to us - since we were first-time buyers and all. I'm truly grateful to the good Lord above for Justin.
We love living in downtown Murfreesboro, but Brad and I soon came to the discussion that we would not be able to find a move-in ready house downtown. Everything we looked at in our price range was in horrible condition - it would have taken lots of time (and even more money) to make it a home.
Justin was patient with us, and he emailed us this past Friday with a new listing - he said it was really cute, and we should definitely check it out. So, we looked at it on Monday at lunch, and I WAS IN LOVE!!! It was everything I wanted and MORE. My parents were able to come look at it again with us on Monday night - it was really important for me to have my parents' approval. Although, if they had said they didn't like it, I might have ignored their opinion! We put in a contract, and thank the good Lord they accepted! They are a young couple with a new baby, and they said they were excited to have someone move in that would appreciate all the hard work they had done on the house! We are very blessed to have this opportunity, and I cannot wait to see what God has in store for us now!

I have attached some pictures of the house for your viewing pleasure - I will have to attach new ones after we move in! Enjoy!

May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us, that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. - Psalm 67: 2-3

I will try to post some more pictures later of the outside of the house!
'Til later, y'all!
