We bought our house 2 years ago. The front looks a bit different, we took out the two evergreens in the front and planted tons of flowers instead. I’m hoping that in 2-3 more years we’ll upgrade to a bigger house when we start having kids.

We have a house, but I’d rather not show a picture of it.

The couple we bought it from was moving to a retirement home in FL, so they left us all sorts of stuff.  Lawnmowers, appliances, furniture; It’s great since we’re just starting out.

Everyone that’s seen the house for paperwork purposes has told us what a great deal we got on the house/land.  His mom and sister think it’s awful, but they are not living here, so we don’t care.  

It was funny when we were looking for a house, there was a lot of “so, are you two married/engaged/etc?”  “no, we’re not…”  “oh.”  “yeah, we’re doing it backwards, a place to live is more useful than a shiny bauble…”  “oh.”.

When I went to look into loans, they would ask, and even after I’d clarified and stated we weren’t at that point yet, they would still slip and call him my fiance/husband.  “Husband” always made me snicker like a 4th grader.

When I went to look into insurance, they would ask, and after I said no, we weren’t, they would go on about how “when you get that BIIIIG rock, you’re going to want to make sure you schedule it, so it’s properly covered…”

In the end, I still have no BEEG rock, no fiance, and no husband, but we have an awesome house.  With jerk-deer that break my birdfeeders.

I bought my house in June and I love it.  It is a three bedroom, two bath, full basement.  I can’t wait for FH to move in with me when we get married.  Here’s a picture..

I don’t have a picture of the front on my computer at work, but this one is of our baby Benson (85 lb. baby, hehe) in the backyard.  That’s our house wayyy back there.  LOVE having the yard for him – and we just got it fenced, so now it’s even better! [attachment=397437,51969]

Nice looking houses!

I cannot wait until me and my Darling Husband buy our first home. It will actually be the first house that my hubby lives in without renting one. His entire life he has lived in a rented place. This house we are renting now is the first house he has ever lived in.

Anyway, our goal is to buy one at the end of 2010. Just trying to kill more of our debt and save up more for the down payment.

It will be exactly one year tomorrow since we bought our place! We bought a townhome in a great location in Seattle. Seattle is relatively expensive place to buy so our townhome was the perfect place to start and we love it. Sorry I don’t have a picture. Good luck to all the ladies out there in the process of buying or looking to buy, its super exciting.
