First, it was an unexpected cruise to Mexico, booked late enough that we got a fantastic deal.
Now, we are unexpectedly buying a house! I know you are thinking that it's difficult to buy a house unexpectedly. I agree.
My husband had his eye on the housing market to prepare us for the future. We thought it might be this year that we buy our first house (the stimulus plan, despite its faults, definitely helps first time home buyers!), but probably later in the year. Well, later came a little sooner than expected! We found this cute 50s cape on a quiet street with a nice piece of land and we decided to go for it!
My mind is almost exploding with the decorating opportunities! A brand new craft room! Paintable walls! New curtains! Gardens! New floor in the kitchen!
The sweetest thing is watching my husband peruse the hardware stores. They are relevant now. He's almost a homeowner!
We get to go in the house tomorrow for the first time since signing on to buy it, so I'll be back with pictures!
