YAHOOO! Or, for all you Texans, YEEHAW!
Our offer was accepted, and we are soon to be homeowners. We are obviously thrilled, and I probably won't be able to sleep tonight, I'm so excited. These next three weeks will be very busy, but we are glad for the short escrow period, since we are dying to REALLY settle in and unpack most of our boxes, finally. It's funny, I am really relieved to be done looking at homes-- I know a lot of people love that part and keep doing it after they've bought a home, but I'm not much of a dreamer and would rather make concrete plans. So now it's time to take a serious look at all those home magazines and start some serious planning. Hurray!

That's so great! I totally relate to not looking at houses when you've already got one! Unless it is to look at model homes for ideas. You are going to have so much fun working on your OWN home!!!
