Busy Busy!

I feel like I've been so busy lately, but when I look back on my day, I didn't really accomplish anything huge... I do get all the things done that need to be taken care of so at least I have that!

We are putting an offer down on a house today!! Or tomorrow... depending on schedules. We are soooo excited! In some ways, we feel like we haven't been looking very long (only a month or so), but we have walked through at least 25 houses! And we absolutely adore this one! You want to know the greatest part? We could move in and not have to do anything! There are no absolute renovations or things to be fixed. Yes, we want to remodel the kitchen and change the downstairs ceiling. But other than that, it's perfect. We're so stoked!

It is kind of scary though. It's a huge commitment to a house, a neighborhood, a lifestyle, and there's no going back. Well, I guess in like 10 years we could sell it and move somewhere else but you know what I mean. We really love this house though, and the neighborhood. Aw it's just so exciting!

We've been waiting for things to come together in our life before we even started thinking about kids, but that dream is slowly becoming a reality and 2013 might just be our year :) We'll see though haha it's just so exciting to finally feel our age and get to move on with our lives, away from college life! It is snowing already here! gasp! I know! But that's ok, once we have a cozy home it'll feel just wonderful :)

Here are some pictures I've taken over the last week or so. It's been fun exploring this new city and eating at new places. I haven't taken many food pictures because 1) most of the restaurants we've been to have really dim lighting, why is that? and 2) I've only liked a couple things I've eaten! I have decided that Basque food is just not for me. It is so bland! But I'll talk on that more in another post.

My super warm snowy day outfit :) 

Yes, I am an Elko County Library card holder, big whoop, wanna fight about it?

Walking in the crunchiness of our possible future back yard
I'll post one of the house when it's more final, because there are all sorts of things that go on when buying a house apparently. I'm so green to this it's ridiculous! But fun at the same time! Well, that's my update! I'd love to hear from anyone who reads this. I'll be posting more now that I have something exciting to write about! Yay! Have a splendid day!


  1. I am so excited to find out that you are blogging. I love to keep up on my cousin's lives through blogs.
    We just bought our first house in January of 2011 and I was a home buyer virgin as well. I knew nothing and had so many questions but we found a great house built in 1910. It has tonnes of charm and great personality! I think I really felt like an adult when 'A' house was ours!!

    1. Aw thanks Chisa! Ya it's pretty scary but exciting :) We're having fun with it and trying not to stress out haha! We wanted an older home but all the ones here, in our price range, were pretty run down :( and we don't want a renovation haha I just looooove early 1900's homes!!
