It’s Official

We are homeowners!



We successfully became homeowners for the third time at 10am today and, I can safely say, this one is definitely my favorite house yet.

SO tired of hotel living, we moved right in and will be “house-camping” for a couple days until our truck-full of stuff arrives. Thank you, St. Louis friends and family, for all the offers of places to stay but really, having a place to ourselves, even empty, is heaven. Plus Stu drove plenty of gear with him so we’re all set. It’s only two nights!

Our realtors and lender made this a quick and painless process and we are so appreciative. While it seems like we’ve been dealing with this forever, it’s only really been a short 30 days. Unbelievable.

I’ll post pictures soon but not until I’ve a) cleaned and b) put some furniture in the place. Amazing how different rooms look when they are empty.

    FABULOUS! And such a great neighborhood– Local Harvest, Hartford Coffee Co, the Royale… Ooooo Derby Party at the Royale just around the corner- a favorite STL event! Enjoy it all!

      Some how I’ve never made it to the Royale. It’s on the list! Can’t miss it now.

    Oh my gosh…SO excited for you guys. Your house looks amazing! I too can NOT wait to see all the charm on the inside. The Haughs are already planning a visit (maybe fall) when you’re nice and settled and we can be spoiled Becky style. XOXO. Hugs to you all – such a stinkin’ adorable family. Miss ya.

    Daaaaang! That house is amazing! Much more than you could’ve gotten in DC right?? So excited to see all your projects.

      Yeah, in DC buying was not a possibility. At least not in Old Town!
