We got it, we got it, we got it!!!

We got the house! This afternoon we officially signed the contract before a notary, which makes us proud owners of a house. Our very first home, and most likely our last, - this is so exciting. To celebrate I took these 2 kits and Shandy's awesome template:
and added a photo I took today of myself sporting my new glasses. Here's the layout:

There is also a contest going on with the Shabby Fall Garden kit. Read about it here.

Congratulations! Moving into your first home is one of the most exciting times in your life - next to having your child of course! Thanks for adding me to your list today - I like to "stalk" your blog as well and it is always a thrill if I see one of my freebies on it.

Enjoy your champagne!

HelenClyde said...

Congratulations! I was following your house-issue with every post, as, the last 4 weeks, we were also discussing about buying a house - only, we will most likely not be able to afford it, unless the price doesn´t go down for another 30.000 Euro...

But it´s so great to read you got yours! Hope you will still find the time to go on a freebie hunt then, with all that renovating you will have to do now :-)

Gina said...

Congratulations! That's fabulous news! I guess your new favorite place to shop might just be Hornbach, eh? ;)

HeatherB said...

Woohoo! Congrats! Enjoy your new home! Just think of how much Ikea goods you can pack in there! hee hee!

There is the office furniture (Galant) which is quite nice (I have a galant desk), and then the wonderful Billy bookcases, and which entertainment centre are you going to pick! And this isn't even considering what closet system (oooh! PAX + all those accessories!) What fun you are going to have! lol! Make sure you share with your loyal readers so we can live vicariously through your shopping extravaganza!! :-)

And great layout, fab new glasses!

I know I'm probably a day late and a dollar short, but congrats on the house! Owning your own home is a wonderful thing. I will say that I miss being able to just call the office or the landlord when soemthing breaks like when we had our apartment though LOL.
