Breaking news!

After renting for the last 10 years (single and being married) my husband and I having finally bought a house. It's a 3 bed/1.75 bath, 1,920 sq. ft, 2 story, built in 1951, new windows, paint, countertops, cabinets, fixtures, everything really...3 FIREPLACES! Fenced backyard with FULL SUN (gardening here I come!), comes with ALL appliances (no more hand-washing dishes or picking for quarters to do the laundry, also with a GAS stove). It's one block off of 6th Ave in North Tacoma, very convenient to everything. The seller is a little old widowed lady that's been there for 30 years and is now moving out to be with her family. We made an offer for 5k less, with an amazing interest rate...the owner had another offer from someone in cash, for less, but she still PICKED US! Thank you Jesus!

The closing date is January 8, 2009 so that gives us just enough time to get through the holidays, give our landlord 20 days notice, pack, move and get settled. The new place is less than 3 miles away, so the move will be very minimal, and the great thing is we probably only have enough furniture to fill 2 rooms plus the family room :) We had/have been praying for the right thing to happen (whatever God decides we'll be okay with) and thankfully God had that house picked out especially for us :) At least I'd like to think so, and the whole process has been so easy, we have a great realtor and mortgage advisor working with us.
