Home Sweet Home

I've been trying to hold of making this official but we have told so many people and let's face it, i'm not good with secrets. Sooooo, on November 10 (as long as things keep going smoothly) Derek and I will close on our very 1st house! After looking at 20+ houses, we finally found the one that met all our requirements (which is a lot when your married to me wanting to become a licensed daycare provider ).  My amazing brother was our realtor so we had a ton of fun finding the perfect house with him. And because I want to remember these dates, here's what all went down.

September 8-Looked at house for the first time
September 9- Made offer
September 10- after a little countering, our offer was accepted and we were under contract!
September 19- Inspection. Only a few minor things needed fixed
September 22- Sellers agreed to fix all the things we asked

And that's where we stand right now. Now comes the hard part, finding all our W2's, bank statements, etc to give to our mortgage guy. Fingers crossed everything goes well and we will move into this house on November 13...
4 bedroooms, 3 baths and finished basement for daycare

The best part, they are leaving their wooden swing set in the backyard. Score!! Daycare kids will LOVE this!
