we are homeowners

Say hello to your newest homeowners!!
{how handsome is our little jaxxy poo}

We had been looking for the last year. Going back and forth on whether to buy or not. Where to buy. Etc... 

House hunting on the regular. Nice home, normal homes, and homes that needed work. Which to be honest, I literally walked right out of. 

We put an offer on a home we loved, so we thought, but once the physical inspection came back, the answer was no. There were so many red flags and major things wrong, we pulled out. 

Well....there was this one house we looked at during the time we had found the above home. The outside was nice and curb appeal was good. But it needed major cosmetic work inside. So I of course raised my nose to it and said no instantly. Once we backed of out of the other home, Tony and I talked and asked to see this fixer upper again. We went in with open eyes and an open mind and decided let's do it.

We put in an offer and she accepted it right away. Heck yes is right!!! 

Only thing is she wanted a 45 day escrow rather than 30, so we were able to get out of our apartment lease, but would have to stay with my dad for a few weeks, which is where we currently are....again.

On April 15th our loan closed {thank the Lord for VA loans, otherwise this wouldn't have been possible}.  Our agent/broker talked us into letting them have two extra days in the home, new home buyer probz. Sooo... we picked up the keys April 17th at about 5pm. 

As a tradition in my family, being that we have moved about 20x since I was a baby, we always eat dinner at the home the night we get keys. Whether the home is a rental or purchase, it's our thing. Being that I love my Mexican food, Tony let me pick dinner at my favorite local hole in the wall. We brought it back and ate dinner on our back patio. Seriously, we were in heaven. I think we hardly even spoke because it was so quite and peaceful. It was perfect!
{ignore how fat my face looks, it truly is the angle}

So much exciting things have happened for us the past year, life is good!! :)
