Why our Chrismas tree still isn't up....

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!

It was very unexpected and we weren't going to buy for a couple more years but we couldn't pass it up. We've never felt so prompted to do anything like we were to buy this house. The last 4 weeks have been crazy and I'm glad the home buying process is over. We've started taking down the wallpaper, which is in every room but 1 bedroom and the living room. We aren't going to move in for a couple of months so that we can get the house ready first. I'm still going to manage the apartments we currently live in for another 2 years until Matt is finished with his MBA. So during the week the boys and I will still spend some time at our current apartment, hopefully with a lot less stuff in it.

The house is located in Murray by Wheeler Farm. It's a 4 bed/2 bath brick rambler which is what we always wanted. They were the original owners and he was a handyman and so everything has been taken really good care of. We're hoping to finish the basement in the next year or two and we're excited to have a garden next year.
