And the winner is…

THIS HOUSE!
Our new house!!!

Our offer was accepted today! We’re so excited. It has the prettiest weeping cherry blossom tree in the front yard right next to a dogwood tree. Right now they’re both in full bloom and it makes the house look so beautiful.

We close on June 30th, just in time for the home buyer’s credit. The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, all new appliances throughout, an adorable kitchen, and a full-finished basement. I was worried about the bathrooms because they weren’t pictured in the listing, but they are GOOD. The master bath has a marble vanity and soaking tub and the rest of the bathrooms are very nice as well. The typical Chicago bungalow art glass windows in the front are intact, which is fairly unusual. All the hardwood throughout the house has been recently refinished and is gorgeous. For the most part, even the paint colors the seller chose are right up my alley. We’ll be able to move right in and enjoy. What a relief!

I can’t wait to have the housewarming party.
