It's official!  Our offer was accepted on a house today.  We're set to close on August 31.

This is the first home that David and I are purchasing together.  Our first home was purchased solo by him when he was 20 and only 4 days before we were engaged.  We lived in that home until May 2007 when we sold it to move to St. Louis to pursue a dream.  Apartments have been our home ever since.  

We've moved so much in the past year that the idea of doing it again is absolutely exhausting.  At least this time it will be the last time for quite a while.  Seriously, we don't plan on moving again for at least 5 years.  

Here's a lovely photo of our home...

It's a historic home (completely redone) in OKC that was originally built in 1920.  It's 2 bed/2 bath in a highly sought after neighborhood.  It still has the original hardwood floors, Frankoma fireplace, original glass doorknobs and so much more!
The kitchen currently has an antique stove/oven, but we're having them remove it prior to closing.  The actual oven space was too small for what I do, so I'll be shopping for a new one soon.  Yippee!
The garage has an air-conditioned room that's separate and we'll eventually use that as a home gym (Note to my DH: I would LOVE an elliptical for Christmas).  The master bedroom has a private door that opens up to the patio where our hot tub is located.  We'll use the 2nd room as our "media room" for 2-4 years until it's time to have a kid.  lol!  

This home was so well taken care of and we just love it!  It's on a corner lot and about 3.1 miles to DH's work and 6 miles to mine.  It's also super close to the bakers supply store I've been shopping at lately.  I feel there are more cookie orders in my future.  lol!
The backyard is absolutely gorgeous!
Please pray the inspection and everything else goes well.

This house looks like it could have been next door to our house in Tulsa! I love the oklahoma cottage homes.
