Offical home-owners!

So you know all those posts I wrote complaining about the home buying process? Well the nightmare is finally over!! If you follow me on twitter than you probably know a little bit about what's been going on.

A few days ago we were contacted by our realtor that the short sale had finally been approved (for the 2nd time)!!! We were ecstatic. We went in, signed the closing docs (for the 2nd time), and yesterday, we officially closed on our house!!! We couldn't be happier that this happened right before the holidays!!! So we'll spend this next week painting and fixing a few little things here and there but we should be all moved in by next Saturday!

A lot of you have been asking about the specifics of the house so here's a little bit of info:

Location:  Maple Valley, WA
year built: 2002
4 bedrooms
2.5 bathrooms
1900 sq feet


I know there is a lot that goes into owning a home, and there are several things we'd like to change/upgrade... but for now - we are happy to have a place to call home for our growing family!
