It's our House-iversary!
One year ago on this past Tuesday Jeff and I handed over more money than we ever had before, singed our lives on a lot of dotted lines for the next 30 years and took possesion of the biggest purchase we've made to date, we bought our house!
We've done a lot of work to our house. When we first looked at it and saw there was wallpaper, I said "No problem!" HA! I recently told Jeff that the next house we buy, if it has wallpaper we aren't buying it and that's final.
The one thing you really take for granted about living in apartments for so long is the maintenance man. Oh Mr. Maintenance Man how I miss you and the ease of calling you up to change the florescent bulbs in the kitchen. The first time we had water leaking through the ceiling in the gameroom of our house, I'm not going to lie, I panicked. Thank God for the home warranty!! Not sure what we would have done without you American Home Shield :)
Although it wasn't our perfect house when we moved in, we are (slowly) making it that way. We love it and there's nothing like driving up to your house everyday and knowing that it's yours (and the banks).
I thought I'd share a couple before and after pictures, don't worry, I have PLENTY more where these came from!
