The BIG news!

This is our first house. We lived here about three years, and it was an amazing little starter home. So many memories here…to name a few:

  • we planned the majority of our wedding here (lots of DIY projects)
  • this was our home after our honeymoon
  • we hosted our first holiday here
  • this was Millie’s first home
  • this was where I learned how to sew
  • this was where we had a LOT of DIY house projects

After a lot of thought, we decided it was time to move to a different area of town. We wanted to live in an area that had great schools for when we start a family. We also wanted a newer home with a good backyard. So, we moved here:

New House

Since we got such an excellent deal on our house (and we weren’t sure how long those awesome interest rates would last), we decided to just scoop up this house and wait for our old house to sell.

And wait….for about four months. (yuck)

Well, today we CLOSED on our old house. We’re back to one mortgage, y’all!

So yeah…BIG HAPPY NEWS for us!

(Ok, so I have to know….how many of y’all thought the big news was a baby?)


  1. Yay, that is such fantastic news! It must be such a relief to go back to paying only one mortgage.

    And I tried really, really hard not to suspect a baby was the big news. Don’t want to jump to any conclusions 😉

  2. Hooray! Congratulations on closing the chapter on your first home! Just think of all the memories that it’s new owners will make there… and the experiences + milestones you’ll celebrate at you new place!

  3. YAY! Congratulations! :)

  4. Congratulations! Your new house is beautiful!

  5. Wow – yay!! What a relief that must be!!

  6. Congratulations!!! LOVE your new house!

  7. Congratulations! The new house looks great. But more importantly, how’s the kitchen???

  8. I saw the picture before reading, so I thought house before baby 😉 Happy Back to One House & mortgage!

  9. I’m a day late (for some reason I couldn’t comment via phone) but CONGRATS on selling the house! For some reason after your teaser tweet I was thinking new job for one of you instead of baby 😉

  10. So happy for you – and what a relief that must be!

  11. Go AMY!! You CAN do it!!

  12. Oops…That was for the weight loss post. Oops. :) That being said congrats! Please give us a tour of your new kitchen. I’d love to see it.

  13. Still jealous of your new, gorgeous house. I wish we could move. Sigh.

    Congrats again honey!

  14. Congratulations!
