We Bought a House!!

July.5.2010

So it’s been a good while since I last posted, and there are a good number of reasons. Averi and I have been very busy getting everything ready for the wedding, and it’s almost here! I started my new job at Jetton Valuation Group. Aaaaand a few weeks ago, Averi and I bought a house!

So as my life transitions quite a bit in the near future, I think the purpose/subject matter of this blog may change a little too. In the past this has been mostly an outlet to share some of the pictures I’ve taken that I thought were interesting, and to tell the few people that read this what I’ve been up to. So, for the purpose of this post, that mostly means that the photographic value of what I’m posting will probably (well, definitely in this post’s case, as these are snapshots, and not photographs. If you’re confused, the first paragraph of this will help.) go down somewhat. Though, hopefully as time allows I’ll be able to spend some time taking pictures again.

Anyway, without further ado… here’s our house!

So that’s our house! We lucked out bigtime and this was literally the ONE forclosure BB&T had in our price range, and it ended up being pretty much exactly what we were looking for in terms of style and amenities…. it just ended up being a pretty huge bonus that it’s more than twice as big as anything else we could possibly afford. So yeah… we’re pretty psyched! My new best friend, Carlos the Painter is coming tomorrow, and we’re pretty much begging for furniture from my family and Averi’s and we’re just about there! At some point in the next few weeks I’ll probably post up some ‘after’ pictures when the house is clean and has new paint on the walls and what little furniture we have is moved in and settled.

Note: Unfortunately many of the shots are a bit grainy/pixelated. If you click on them it’ll take you to the flickr page for each shot where you can see a better quality shot. Flickr has changed up a bit, and I’m trying to figure out the best way to post better quality pictures. Though, it was a little late in the day so some are grainy either way.
