Welcome Home

Friday is going to be big day! Yep, I'm happy to announce that we will be closing on my first house! After almost 7 months of house hunting I finally found the absolute PERFECT home. I literally walked into this house and began balling. It took my breath away. I still can't believe I'll be living in it one day! I am so blessed. 

Our relator has had to put up with so much from my parents and me. He told us that we have taken longer to buy a house than any of his other customers. Okay, so we were pretty picky... but it was worth it! I am so glad we didn't settle on any other houses. This one was worth the hunt! The one and only downfall is its location. The house is located downtown in a not-so-safe area. We are planning on investing in alot of security since I will be living alone. I'm probably going to have a roommate at some point but that will take some time. In the meantime my boyfriend will have to look after me and keep me company!

Whew! I am so happy to be done house hunting and to have a place to call home. Now the real fun can begin - decorating decorating decorating! I can finally put my inspired mind to use. The only problem is I'll have to shop for alot of things online. Memphis has absolutely no shopping! Most of the furniture down here caters to the french country style cliental. My style is more eclectic-chic. Needless to say I'll definitely be hunting for 

Here's some pics of the house. Hope you like!
