Aaaaand...We're Officially Homeowners!

Well, it's official---as of this afternoon, we legitimately are the actual and legal owners of something other than a car.

It will still be a couple weeks before we actually move everything in, but we're pretty darn excited (in case you couldn't tell!).

The main reason why we're not moving in right away is that we want/need to change some of the paint choices, starting with the front door (which was painted using interior paint and therefore bubbled upon coming into contact with direct sunlight, as you can see below). The house also has some unfortunate choices for accent wall colors on the inside that I just didn't want to live with, so we're taking a weekend to paint and will start leisurely moving things in bit by bit.

Although we're sad to say goodbye to the good people and the good neighborhood we're leaving behind, we are eager to see what this new chapter in our lives brings us.

(Stay tuned for plenty of in-progress and eventual before/after pics in the coming weeks!)

(This is the best selfie we got of the three of us...
and you can barely even see the house in the background. Oh well.)

Now we just need to hope that all this excess excitement carries over into excess packing and painting energy...

Hey, I can dream, right? 


  1. Yay yay yay! Closing is so exciting and scary but mostly just way exciting! Congratulations!

  2. wahoo!!!!!!!!!!!! it looks so cute torrie! and what silly people for using interior paint on the front door... duh ;) i'm so excited to see it all! if you were closer i'd totally come help paint! we'd better plan a logan visit in the next few weeks!

  3. Congratulations! When I saw the first picture, my comment was going to be "Such a cute house! I LOVE the front door! I want a red front door!" Then I kept reading and saw the pictures... so unfortunate. Will you keep it red? Good luck with the painting!

  4. Congratulations! Can't wait to hear about the move!

  5. Yayyy!!! There is no milestone that makes you feel like more of a grownup than home ownership. Lol Congratulations!

  6. Oh congratulations!! I'm so glad that it is yours, and that you are moving in soon, after some painting! I can understand wanting to get that done first. Hoping to be in similar shoes in late fall! :) XO - Alexandra
