Home is Where the House is

I haven't said much about this publicly because just about anything can happen with real estate and I didn't want to make any premature announcements...but this morning, we closed on our first house!


We're not moving far, just a few towns over, but it's a bit bigger of a city and a bit more popular with our age bracket, so we're really looking forward to that. Not to mention the part where we have a house. I've been making Zoidberg cracks all day.

The woman who sold it (who we met this morning and who could not have been any sweeter) had lived there since the 80's and taken fantastic care of it. We're going to paint, swap out some fixtures, that kind of thing, but it really doesn't need much work. Nevertheless, I thought I'd do a little video tour to record what it looks like right now, so we can compare it to the "afters" somewhere down the line. 

It's... a little shaky. Sorry about that. I still haven't figured out how to film with my phone while walking without making it all queasy. If you'd rather just check out the photos, they're here. (Also, I promise my husband isn't quite such a twit in real life. Cameras really bring out the best in him.)

I am super excited to jump into the home-decor-n-fixin-uppin's (I ended up with memberships to two different hardware stores before I even made it home from the closing today.) Expect some DIY posts, starting with the table I magically turned purple...


  1. Congratulations! I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Futurama and Zoidberg factored in to your celebrations.

  2. Congratulations! That house is adorable :)
