We just bought a house.
Didn't know we were looking for a house? Neither did we!
A couple of weeks ago, we started tossing around the idea of renting a home from David's dad. (Our apartment lease is up at the end of May.) We found two new homes that we liked and looked at them both last Sunday. The cheaper one was amazing and the more expensive one was terrible. We knew we needed to act fast.
David's dad ran some numbers. He came by Wednesday night and we talked.
Then we decided we should buy it. Here we are, two days later, and we beat out another bid and the house is ours. Well, not completely officially. But we're already set with the mortgage broker and everything is well on its way. We close at the end of the month.
Ridiculous. We are very excited.
To finish, some awesome things that God set up for us over the last week:
We got our bill for the anesthesiologist - over $600.
The next day, we got an unexpected refund check from our OB clinic for more than the amount for the anesthesiologist. Insane.
The house builder ended up being the guy who did the Children's Homes (David's work).
The builder's Realtor is good friends with two of David's coworkers and helped them find homes. She was lovely. We met with her this morning.
Oh, and the house is gorgeous - inside and out.
God is good.
Love and excitement,
