It is true that we bought a home. Home owners in the house! It felt like a long and stressful process but looking back we really enjoyed the search and can say with all honesty that this is the right house for us. We looked at many many houses and I was obsessed with watching the MLS everyday. Initially we lost the bid on this house and went on to bid on another house that we lost as well. Right when we were about to lose hope our realtor called to say that the initial bid fell through and we were next in line. Thanks to our realtor and Keller Williams it was a super smooth process. We are officially all moved in and are slowly unpacking and finding where all the light switches are.
We love living in the Nokomis neighborhood of South Minneapolis. We are super close to lakes and bike trails and Fort Snelling and Minnehaha Falls and great restaurants and great friends. Holy cow there is so much to love here.
We've lived here for a week now and it just keeps getting better and better. We've already painted the living room, dining room and bathroom. My stepmom was awesome enough to come over and get us started on a landscape design and we've really got our work cut out of us on the yard. Not to mention the giant list of things to do inside! We're definitely enjoying each step and are excited to learn about our home. I never thought I would say this but I am so excited to now own a shopvac and a dehumidifier.
Here are some pics to wet your whistle. Here's us showing up for the first time as homeowners and cracking our first bottle of champagne. You can get a teaser of the front door, the living room and the deck:
One last thing. Moving is hard. And totally stressful. We had a lot of awesome help and are very thankful to our friends and family for making the transition as easy as possible. We need to thank Julie, Anna, Danny and Chris as well as our big muscles moving team (pictured below) that featured Eli, Steve, Rev. Dave and Luke. Thank you thank you thank you a million.
