The good news keeps rolling out today! In the midst of having a baby this last month, D and I were contacted by the sellers of the house we were going to buy before the rug got pulled out from under us by the bank. It turns out they are desperate to sell this house to us. So, long story short, we negotiated with them to purchase the home on a Contract for Deed. (I'm a lawyer, so I know what that means, but here's the best quickie definition I've found for it.) In a nutshell, it means we are getting a house! :) I'm so happy. Because I can't resist, here's two very bad quality pics from the listing:
Back:I guess this will be another happy chapter to add to Through the Wringer! Although looking back, I guess it's been more like up and down the roller coaster! ;)
I never got too much done to spruce up our rental home due to having the baby. And now, as of May 21st, I will be busy sprucing up our new home. I can't wait. I need to go start picking out paint colors and buying rugs for the bedrooms ( all 3 have hardwood floors!). I'll be sharing stuff as we go. We probably won't tackle any big projects (like finishing the basement or rearranging the kitchen) this first year, but those are things that are on our list to do in the future.
Be prepared to see some inspiration boards worked up very soon!
