Totally skipping ahead

I am skipping ahead on this one.  I am too tired to play catch up right now.  On Tuesday, May 17, we had a realtor come to the house.  We ended up with a For Sale sign in the yard that night, and the house was officially listed on May 18.  On Thursday morning we had a showing.  The same guy came back that night with his brother and sister-in-law that night.  We had another showing on Friday.  Friday night the realtor called me and told me we were getting an offer.  On Saturday she came over with a great offer.  Our house sold in 3 days!

It just does not seem real!  So today (Thursday, 5/26) we went house shopping.  We saw 7 houses, and then we went back to our favorite.  We ended up making an offer.  Short story....we have a contract on a house!  Assuming nothing goes wrong, here is our new house.  I am so excited!

We are set to close on July 1, so we are accepting offers to help us move over the 4th of July weekend!
