Remember those goals I talked about in the beginning of the year?

Well today, hubs and I have one to scratch off the list.  We finally closed on our first home together.  It seems like it’s been a long process, but really it took about 45 days from start to finish.

We started looking at houses at the end of November beginning of December and then took a little (much needed) break around the holidays.  With Christmas and us still having so much time left in our apartment lease, I needed to stop looking-I was starting to feel overwhelmed.  Within those few weeks, Larry and I talked about what we really wanted out of a house.  He wanted a finished basement and I wanted a nice kitchen.  We both wanted a city with good public schools, not too far from work with a lot to do.  And I was really attracted {or so I thought} to houses with a lot of charm.  We ended up in a town west of Milwaukee about 25 minutes from work.  There, we found the perfect home to suit both of our needs: His finished basement and my big kitchen. home


We went in today and took a lot of pictures so that I’ll have some before and after photos to share.  I have so many Pinterest projects to get working on!  The house also comes equipped with SIX raised garden beds, all ready to go, so if anyone has any gardening tips, please feel free to pass them along to this girl!  The only thing I’ve ever successful grown in my twenty something years of life is a child.  The seller told me that we should have over 100 heads of garlic popping up this summer.  My plan for those are to give some to friends and then mince and can the rest.  I’ve found a new hobby 🙂

Stay tuned for more pics and house updates on the blog!
