I got I bought a house.

I haven't even looked to see the last time I posted, but I know it was a long time ago. So much has happened in the past year - some good, some bad and some, well, expensive. Here's the expensive I'm talking about:

I bought a house.
I'm not talking expensive in that I can't afford it, I'm talking expensive in that it's the largest purchase I've made in the past year. But it's less expensive than my rent right now and I'm just bored without any projects to complete. And trust me, this place will give me plenty of projects.

A little bit about the place: it was built in 1902 and is on the National Historic Registry (which says it was built in 1898). With it being on the National Registry, there are certain things that I can and can not do to the exterior. Their motto is "Repair before Replace" and I am all for that - except when replacing would make the home more energy efficient or is less costly. But I won't get into that now, I knew what I was getting into before I signed my life away.

My style leans towards modern, but I'll be embracing the history of this home (by not painting the trim white) but also keeping my decorating on more of the modern side (I bought magenta curtains for the living room).

I close on August 29th and will begin the rehabbing process almost immediately. I'll be updating the blog with my progress and I hope you'll follow along! I'm sure my "My Opinion Monday"posts are about to get a little more interesting.


  1. Wow! I wish I can just buy a house whenever I'm bored, like you. Haha! Anyway, the house is really beautiful. I can't wait to see what you're planning to do with it. I hope you'll enjoy remodeling your new place. Why can't August come any sooner? I can only imagine how thrilled you are. Keep us updated. All the best! :)

    1. Thanks Kristy! I can't say that I was prepared to buy a house but when you consider that it's less for a mortgage then my current rent, I had to go for it :) I'm anxious for August too and ready to get started! Thanks for following along!
