Welcome Home!

Welcome to our new home!!

Yesterday we closed on our new house!  It feels so good to say our house!  I still can not believe we own a home, we literally own a home.  We have so much we want to do, so much in fact after we were handed the keys to the house we drove right over and ripped the carpet up in the living room because it was killing us to know what was under there...nice hardwood floors!  Yea!  Then we started ripping bits and pieces of wallpaper off, then some more carpet, some more wallpaper, and then looking around outside to see what we could do out there.  We totally were not dressed to do any type of home improvement work, but we were excited.  So now we have 15 more little projects to add to our big projects, since we didn't finish any of our adventures yesterday and actually we just made a big mess!  
I know it is killing Eric to have to be in a conference today and not over there working.  But I am sure he will have his fill of work over there!  


Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, and encouraging words!  I can't wait to show you some of our finished projects around the house.  Have a great weekend!!

This is the sweetest post. Congratulations!! Seeing the picture of this home makes me feel homesick. I grew up in a suburb of Chicago. (my brother lives in Milwaukee) It has that similar look to the house I grew up in. I wish you a lifetime of blessings in your new home. Enjoy!

Congratulations! I just had to giggle when you said that you guys headed straight over there and started pulling up carpet and taking down wallpaper because that's exactly what we did when we got the keys to our house. Have fun putting your touch on things and I can't wait to see pictures!
