Third time's a charm

After two unsucessful offers on a house and a solid month of searching, we finally found a house! We hope to close on it before the end of the month and get out of our current living situation:



We live downstairs, and gratefully no one lives upstairs. I haven't really even unpacked anything besides our clothes...no pots, dishes, etc. I know I've probably complained plenty about living here, but it's mostly just been the apartment itself...I really do love Lubbock. We have some neighborHOOD neighbors around here though.

And the remodelers bring their supplies like this:

Can you see why we are happy to be moving here?

Looks beautiful! The house, of course. The apartment looks like a nightmare. Hope the closing goes smoothly and that you can move in ASAP. How are you living without dishes? Paper plates? How frustrating!

that house is darling! Can't wait to see pictures of the whole thing and how you decorate, etc. Glad you are enjoying yourselves despite the less-than-stellar apartment circumstances! Way to have a positive attitude!

The new prospective house looks like a typical Texas home, lovely and brick. I am so glad you will be getting out the of apartment. Best of luck with the closing and signing and moving.

i would be OVERJOYED to move out of that place and to anywhere else... but you've picked quite a beautiful home nevertheless! I hope it goes through! Congrats!

I noticed my mom's comment about the house looking like a Texas house and I laughed. That's exactly what I thought. It made me miss home just a bit. :) Looks like a lot of the houses from where I grew up. It looks really nice, and I love the green yard!!! :) We don't have a lot of green in AZ!
