My . Most . Exciting . News

So after waiting to make sure that most everything would turn out, I can finally share my exciting news!!

My fiance and I have been looking at houses for about three months, and last weekend we found the perfect home -- at the beginning of the week we found out that our offer was accepted, and this morning we had the inspection (which went very well!), and it's pretty much official...

I'm going to be a homeowner!!

It was so hard to keep this secret, but I didn't want to jinx the inspection! Now I can officially start thinking about the important things: decorating!

I've been looking at photos like this living room:



This kitchen:



And this bedroom:



...though since I've always been a renter, I'm so overwhelmed by the idea that I get to make any decorating choices that I want!

Once we close I'll have to post photos and ask all of you for decorating recommendations (Sara's decorating tips are coming just in time!).

I do hope that everyone else has an equally wonderful weekend!!

Thank you so much everyone! I'm very excited (nervous too!). I went to Lowes this afternoon to look around -- and I thought shopping for clothes was dangerous -- the CC damage that I could just shopping for flooring is ridiculous, lol!

But I've been able to restrain myself, so far anyway!

Jess: That's great about your house -- I'm sure it will be wonderful to finally have it done and be able to move in!
