The Search for Home: Putting in a Contract

Ok, I have no time to write & post pics right now, but I just wanted to let you know that we found it. THE house. We both absolutely love it & the neighborhood is awesome!! It feels right in every way. My heart just sang when I walked through the door.

Just to warn you, THIS HOUSE IS UGLY. But don't be scurred. I have plans.

xoxo,
lauren

Wow - that was fast! When we saw our current house, we knew immediately it was the one. It went on the market on a Friday, we saw it on Saturday, and by Sunday there were 5 offers! Those were the days...you rarely hear about this happening anymore.

Can't wait to see the pictures.

Lauren, what a terrible way to leave us hanging. I can't wait to see the pictures. Where are you from? We Okies say scurred to be silly.

We knew right away too with our house. Once we toured it we put a bid in about 30 mins later and then had the house by the next day!

I'm super happy for your guys!!! I know you are going to make it look amazing! I can't wait to come and visit! It better have a guest room!!!

So great, I'm so excited to see what you will do to it! Ugly is the smartest way to buy a house. It means you will make money in the end because you have the vision!
