WE'RE FINALLY BUYING OUR HOUSE!!! After 8 years of living here and at least 6 years of our Landlord saying "You know, we're willing to work out a rent-to-own type of situation with you", we're finally in it! WE OWN A HOUSE!!!

I'M OFFICIALLY A GROWNUP NOW!!! BUT IN A GOOD WAY!!!

We really owe it all to our Landlord, who kicked us into gear by telling us that he intended to put the house on the market in *May*. This wasn't a suprise, really... when we moved in he had said that he wanted to sell it "within ten years".

We really love it here, and our biggest anxiety/fear/stress was that looming "within ten years" thing. Every time we looked at renting or purchasing anything other than this house, it became painfully clear just how great of a deal we were getting - A place this size, in a neighborhood like this, with this much yard and such a great location, rents for at least TWICE what we're paying per month in rent. And luckily for us, the price we agreed upon will bring our monthly total payment (plus taxes, insurance, and all that jazz) to almost the same amount!

congrats! Buying a house is such a scary endeavor, but totally worth it. And you guys don't even have to search for a house, so that's most of the headache gone. I'm happy for you!
