I'm a Big Girl Now

July has been a very busy month so far. On the first I looked at a couple of houses that are a no go. Then on Monday I took E&J to see the house that I like (see picture). They love it as much as I do. So I put an offer on the house Monday night. Tuesday morning I got my counter offer. They accepted all of my terms and came down some on the asking price. I jumped at it. The contract was signed that afternoon! I have an inspection lined up for Friday, July 13. Let's cross our fingers that superstition does not hold true :) If all goes according to plan, I'll close on August 1st. That gives me a full month to move out of my apartment and get it up to par so that I get back my full security deposit. I know I need to clean the carpets and scrub the aging linoleum. Thankfully the new house does not need a lot of work, just some minor painting of the kitchen cabinets and some accessory change outs. I still am a little shocked that if/when this works out I'll have reached my goal of home ownership by the age of 30. I'll even have done it with 9 months to spare! I guess I have to find a new goal. Kids by 35? Fitting back into a size 8? We'll see.

Congrats!! Home ownership is great. A bit of a pain, but it's nice to have something that's really *yours*...
