Starting out the New Year right!

I'm sure you don't want to here about our house searches, but we are so excited we can't hold it in. This last month we sold my Jeep and that provided us with a great down payment for a house. We met with the bank and got pre-approved on the 17th of December. We then met with our Realtor on the 18th. Unfortunately he was leaving for Christmas that weekend. He sent us some listings through email while he was gone. We were so excited to see some of them, we drove around and peaked in windows.

Our realtor got back yesterday and is going to take us to look at 3-4 of the houses we want to see, tomorrow. I'm so excited I can barely sit still. This is way more exciting than Christmas (not saying I don't love the ballroom dancing lessons Loren got me), but I've always wanted a house and now the time is coming.

Here are some of the house we will be looking at. There is benefits and downfalls for each house. From all the pictures, peaking in the windows, and location; Loren and I are liking the first one the most. It has 1522 sf, 3 bed, 2 bath, family room, bonus room (we like this option), dining room, and huge kitchen. We'll have to see tomorrow what everything else looks like inside, but we really like this one. Oh, and it sits on a .24 acres. This would give us an area for a huge garden. I'm sure I'll keep you posted on what happens. Hope you all have a great New Year!
