Surprise Time!

Thursday, May 1, 2014

Okay so I told you a couple days ago that we had a surprise to share, but that I didn't want to share it before it was official. Well we've gotten to a place where I feel like we can finally share it. Sorry to disappoint some of you, no I'm not pregnant :)

But... 

We are building a new house!!!!! We put an offer in on Sunday and found out our second offer was accepted yesterday afternoon! We go to sign all the papers today and then start the whole planning process for every little detail and decision. I'm really excited to get to make this house our own! Of course we still have to sell our current house and we will probably have to rent for a few months in between but we couldn't be happier about things working out so far! 

But what's a post without a few pictures! 

We celebrated last night with some of our favorite champagne! 

Here's an example of what our new kitchen and part of our living room will look like (bare in mind that we took these pictures while looking through windows of a similar house our builder is finishing #totallynotcreepers) 




And here's our lot! I can't wait to see the whole house come together! I'll definitely keep you updated on the whole process! 


Thanks to everyone for the good thoughts and wishes! I'm so excited to finally share this with all of you!!
