Todd and I recently bought our first house! We had planned on moving this spring - probably to another rent house. But with the extra incentive of the first home buyer's tax credit, we decided to take the plunge! We looked at hundreds of houses online and quite a few in real life. One of the first things brides do when they become engaged is try on wedding dresses. I heard from quite a few people (and from watching "Say Yes to the Dress"), that many brides end up buying the first dress they try on. This was not the case for me. But I suspect it would have been so for Todd! We both fell in love with the first house we looked at. I think Todd would have bought it on the spot, but I wanted to look at a few more. We looked at a quite a few houses in the area, but kept coming back to "our first love". Now I am proud to say that it is ours! Here are a few pictures of our new house:
This is the front view from the street.
Todd even remembered to carry me across the threshold! I couldn't get a picture of it though, we were the only ones around.
