Holy crap, we bought a HOUSE!

Last week (at about 9 pm on Tuesday) I received an email from our Realtor telling me to be on the look out for a wonderful home.  It was in our price range (actually, smack dab in the middle of it), was completely remodeled, and it is HUGE.  The pictures online were gorgeous.  Compared to the other homes we had seen, this was BY FAR the best.  Evan and I started calling it "our home."  We knew we shouldn't do that, but we couldn't help it.  I was pretty obsessed, but Evan was actually WAY worse than I was.  He kept looking at the pictures OVER and OVER again.  He emailed our Realtor and asked her if she thought the house would be available in 3 weeks when we planned to go and actually LOOK at houses in person.  She wrote back and said ... nope, she doubted it.  We were bummed.

On Friday, Evan and I were still talking about it.  We decided the best idea would be for his family to go look at the home for us and send us LOTS and LOTS of pictures.  They called us after touring the home for nearly 45 minutes and loved it.

So, we put an offer on it. 

I know!  We're nuts!  I know!

That evening, our realtor called and said there was already another offer on it.  But, they liked ours best and would answer the next morning.

Saturday morning she called and there was a THIRD offer!  However, they wanted US and said YES to US! 

They knew it was OUR home! 

Since then, we've been on cloud nine and yet nervous all at the same time.  Evan's going to Little Rock to look at the house this Friday while it's getting inspected.  I know we sound nuts, but trust me, this place is awesome.

We have a HOUSE!

Oh, and did I mention we have a hot tub in the backyard? ; )

I'll put up more pictures after Evan takes the trillion that I've ordered him to take this Friday!

P.S. Giveaway for crawler covers ends tomorrow afternoon!
