Today, on September 3 2010…

we became homeowners!

Despite some bumps with our financing along the way, everything worked out smoothly in the end. It feels surreal, after THREE years of searching in the hot summer heat or in the icy slippery snow, we have finally reached the end…and a new beginning.

Although our savings account is drained, I am so content with our new place. It is everything I’d ever dreamed to find in a home, even a lofty one of wanting a mud room. Although we now have the giant responsibility and commitment of a mortgage, I am so glad we found our home.

I think we are really going to flourish there.

The big bad move is this weekend. If all goes well, I will be back online on Saturday night.

I promise to have pictures for show and tell. :)


  1. congratulations! a mud room is a must in my book, too! We just converted our laundry to a mud room! love it! good luck with the move!

  2. Oh I'd never heard of a mudroom before, but it sounds like it'd make life (and house-cleaning) so much easier. Congrats on the big milestone and good luck with the move. Hope things continue going smoothly :)

  3. The idea of a mud room is new to me but it sounds like a real practical thing to have! Congrats and all the best with the big move! Looking forward to seeing your pics soon!

  4. Cox is supposed to migrate our connection over to the new place tomorrow. So if it's not up by tomorrow nite, I'm gonna be pissed. Then again, we'll probably be too busy unpacking to even think about browsing, or blogging in Sugar's case.

    But yes, despite my life long dreams being derailed by this house, I think I've discovered a whole new set of dreams and goals that I never imagined myself pursuing. Happy days ahead, so long as one of us continues to bring home the bacon or aliens decide to spare Tyson's Corner come 2012.

  5. Congrats on the new home!!! I hope your move is going smoothly!

  6. Wow! Congratulations!! I'm so happy for you and your family. Good luck on the move.
