The recent source of my excitement and insanity!!

We are buying a house! I haven't announced this yet because I was waiting for all the logistics to play out. Getting the home loan was even more fun and exciting than I expected it to be (detect major sarcasm, please!), but we finally got approved last week. The home inspection went well and the sellers agreed to all the maintenance requests we had, so I just couldn't be happier. So here she is, our 1.5 story 1947 Cape Cod style 1192 sq ft home-to-be:

We took this picture at the open house:



And this is the picture from the weblisting of the house minus snow:
Obviously we could use some curb appeal, so I've already bought a landscaping book. The monster bushes hiding the house have to go!

So, consider yourself forewarned! There will likely be many home decor and renovation blog posts in my future! We close on March 31, so you have until then to prepare yourself! But not really, since I'm already obsessing about paint colors, furniture placement.....I'm ready to move now.
