    FI and I are just sooooo super excited as we've just purchased our first home!!!!!!! This all happened very fast for us. We weren't really expecting to find a house right away, it just happened to fall on our laps, so we couldn't resist. So in the next 3 and 1/2 months, we have to pack, move, finish planning the wedding, there's hunting for the men (in oct & nov), thanksgiving, christmas, new years and then the wedding (we leave on Jan 2)! I think I'll go insane but it'll be so much fun!!!!!

    We take possession on October 1st and have the whole month to move in as we don't have to leave our apartment until October 31st. This is such an exciting time for the both of us. There are some things that we want to do in the home before actually moving in. We want to remove some carpets as there is hardwood floors underneath. Painting will also be done as it's a lot easier to do with nothing in the rooms.

    As a lot of you know, my aunt is making my wedding dress and I started a thread to show the progress of that. Well, I thought that I would do the same thing here. Show our progress in the house, before and after pics. Kinda like a home renovating/decorating thread! I thought it would be fun to share ideas.

    I don't have any pics with me as I'm at work, but I promise to post some very soon. We plan on starting reno's next weekend. (YIKES!!!) lol

    I just wanted to share my good news...I'm so happy right now!

      CONGRATS!!! I remember how excited we were to finally own a little piece of land we could call our own; I'm excited for you. I look forward to seeing your pics & your progress!!!

      Good luck with the ripping up carpet & possibly redoing the hardwoods; I feel your pain on that one, as we have been doing that for what seems like eternity now (really only been about a week, but still :)

      CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
