We Accept!!

So, as we figured they would, the sellers came back with a counter offer. It was what we excepted so it's no big deal. We will in turn accepted their offer. It looks like we are on our way to owning our first home! I think I'm going to throw up!!

Grant Dr.

As I mentioned in my last blog, Terry and I are house hunting. Well I am happy (and a little sick to my stomach) to say that we have put a bid in for a house. And here it is....

It's not ours yet but hopefully by July 16th it will be! It's so perfect for a little starter home. It's about 1000 sq.ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 bath, 2 car garage, nice back yard, a cute little back porch. It seems small but once your in it there's more than enough room!

I still can't believe it! Ever since we moved here our lives seem to be finally headed in the right direction. We both felt so.....stagnant in VA. Now it's like the possibilities are endless. Yeah Washington!

Well, hello there!

So here I am writing my very first blog. I'm all a twitter with excitement! Not really.

I'm stating this blog so our families & friends can keep up with my husband & I a little better. We quite literally have people EVERYWHERE! Pennsylvania, Texas, Nevada, Mississippi, North Carolina, Arizona, Virginia, Illinois and here in Washington. Family reunions are a bitch!

I'll start out by telling all the folks who don't know me & my hubby a little bit about us. We've been together about 13 years married about 9. No kids yet. (we'll get to that later) We were friends about 2 years before we became a couple. But I knew from the moment I met him I wanted to be with him forever. It didn't even (at that point) matter if it was as a couple or not. He's the best friend I've ever had and I have more fun with him than I ever have with anyone and I have some super friends & family.

We've (I've) moved a lot. I was born & raised in Houston TX till I was 15. We moved to DuBois PA and that's were I met Terry. He finished school and we moved to Hampton Roads VA. Although the state of VA can be very nice, the area we lived in sucked for us. However if you ask a local it's God's Country! My question always was "Have you even been anyplace else?" Anyway for the last few years we lived there all we wanted was out so Terry being the brainy nerd he is he got a great job here in WA. It's beautiful here and we love it! I think we'll stay.

Now here we are in Seattle WA (hopefully for good) and jumping into adulthood with both feet. We just bought our first NEW car. A 2007 Subaru Outback named Lucy. Our 94 Jetta, Phoebe, is a very proud big sister. We have 2 cats, Smoke & Pepper and a dog named Snoopy. We're house shopping and trying to have a baby. We've only been at it for about 3 months but hopefully it won't take forever. I'm a instant gratification kind of girl! We'll see.

So anyway that's us in a nutshell. I hope I didn't put you to sleep.
