We had considered the area before, but didn't know much about it. After we finished seeing houses Dan and I drove back to the area and decided we wanted it. We love the fact that there were nice people out walking their dogs or with children. It was so refreshing compared to the other home we were considering. Plus, there is a cute area with bars restaurants and boutiques a few blocks away!
On Tuesday, we went to see the house again. (Just in case) On Wednesday we put an offer on the home and by Friday an offer was accepted!!!! We are elated! Our first home! There are a few more hoops to jump through. So I'll wait to tell you more about it. I don't want to "jinx it".
I can't believe it was only a week ago that we first saw the house. We have driven past is so many times and looked over and over again at the pictures imagining ourselves living there! We went to both Home Depot and Lowes on Saturday to scope out all the new things we will need and want.
Over the last week we have been having so much fun looking at furniture, paint samples, and ways to decorate. Dan has excellent taste and is very much (more than me, really) into decorating. We are anxious to move and have a house of our own!
Back yard and deck!
As for the weekend, we celebrated at Tortas with some pulled pork tacos, then headed to our new hood for a celebratory drink at Black Acre. On Saturday we rode our bikes to the Talbot Street Art Fair and Handcraft Exchange. That night we rode to the Indianapolis Indians game. Sunday I started working on a romper.
Looking forward to another exciting week. We are expecting a new niece this week and celebrating a good friends wedding this weekend!
