Our First House!

Evan and I are buying our first house! It all started with a friend of mine from work wanting to sell her house in the neighborhood. We loved it but it wasn't affordable for us. So we started seriously thinking about where we wanted to live, have our kids born, and stuff like that. We finally found a house in south Arlington/Mansfield area that we love. It is just the right size for us (1700 sq ft). The lot it is on backs up to a very new elementary school. The elementary school principal was also a professor of mine at DBU last semester! Anyway, life has been VERY stressful with work, school, and now my third full time job of signing paperwork and answering phone calls. We had the inspection today, in the many inches of snow. The report seemed to be good. We are going to meet with him on Saturday so he can inspect the roof and sprinkler system. Next is the appraisal. Hopefully the house will appraise for more than we offered, but if it doesn't then we have to go back to negotiations. Well, enough of the info, here are pictures of our potential first house!
