We bought a house! (The Before Pictures)

The day is finally here... we are officially homeowners!  Chris and I closed on our first house yesterday!  We had the walk through in the morning and then the mortgage closing with our attorney in the afternoon.  We won't be moving in officially for a few weeks (painting first), but we are moving everything from my parents' basement now as well as having new furniture delivered.  I will be super busy these next few weeks driving back and forth!  

The sellers have been amazing the entire time so I shouldn't be surprised that they left the house super clean!  They also left us notes explaining how they left us some of their cleaning supplies (for the granite counters and wooden island), extra light bulbs for the range hood, leftover paint, and many other things.  They also left us a bottle of champagne in the fridge!  They really are amazing and made our first home purchase a very pleasant experience. 

Not only are they super nice people, but the previous owners kept the house in really good condition and had done a bunch of upgrades and renovations.  We are having the house painted and changing a few cosmetic things (very minor things), but for the most part we are just moving in and enjoying the house.  I'm super excited to decorate the rooms and hang pictures on the wall.  I need to find the balance between setting up the rooms immediately and enjoying the process of decorating it slowly.

Anyway, here is our house as it was after we got the keys on Monday.  Please excuse the lighting in some of these pictures, I took them around 7 pm while the men were bringing in some boxes.
