The fiance and I are purchasing a sweet little town home about 10 minutes away from where we currently live!

We searched high and low, we saw the crappiest craptastic stuff that the real estate market has to offer, then out of no where, we found our home.

I don't know if we were seriously looking-- we could have stayed in our apartment for another year at least, but we decided to just check out the listings and to visit the ones that caught our eye.

Most of what we saw induced vomit.

However, one day, we went to visit a town home. It's cute and yellow with blue shutters. It has three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and it looks like it really was well loved. It has a fenced in back yard (small) and a balcony off of the kitchen. The neighborhood is beyond cute and inviting.

When we walked in we just looked at each other and smiled. After we were done touring, we looked at each other and said -- this is it! It's not perfect, it needs some work, but it works for us.

I don't know what it was about that house-- and to be frank, we can't even remember what color the carpet is. The only thing we remember is the feeling that we got when we walked in.

Let's hope we weren't high on fumes when we were touring because as of today, it's ours (well if all goes as planned).

We put in an offer on Monday evening and she finally accepted today. It was stressful and neither of us slept for two nights, but now we know.

We're celebrating with Shepperd's Pie and Champagne.

Congrats! That feeling you get with your first home is priceless. It's funny how little you can remember about it once you leave, but you know that you loved it. That is how it was for my husband and I and our first house. I had to keep looking at the real estate page online to remember what it looked like! Congrats again!

Congratulations - that is so exciting! Our house hunt was a lot like yours. We weren't seriously looking, and suddenly we were moving in, LOL! Just stopped by to say thanks for entering my Support the Troops giveaway and following! I’ll be drawing two winners on Tuesday. Hope you’re one of them!
