So yesterday was a really exciting day. We became homeowners! We closed on our first house and are pretty much on cloud nine. The closing process went really smoothly and was actually much faster than I anticipated.
I've always heard horror stories of closing taking hours and the papers to sign being never-ending, but we were in and out of there in an hour. The paperwork was no joke though. I laughed at how pretty our signatures started out and how sloppy they were by the end. After signing our lives away, the keys were finally ours!

I am excited to blog about the different house projects we decide to take on and the transformations that ensue as we make this home our own. Ironically, one of the reasons we chose this home is because it was completely move-in ready and didn't need any work done. Somehow, we have a page long list of projects we want to tackle. I think there is just something fun about making a home your own, and we are the typical overly eager first-time homeowners, so it makes sense. The first step will be to move in... yayyyy moving!
And lastly, I leave you with a picture of the neighborhood peacock. Seriously. There is a guy that lives near us who has 6 peacocks, and they pretty much walk around the neighborhood like they own the place. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't really excited about hosting our family and showing them the peacocks. I mean really, how cool? Will it be cool when they are clucking like roosters in the early morning? Maybe not, but that remains to be seen. Even if they are loud, they're peacocks. They're so neat that I forgive them already.
