Feeling quite grown up.

After over five years of marriage, Ben and I are biting the bullet- we're buying a house! Although I'm super excited about this, it's also pretty scary at the same time. I believe that Dwight Shrute from The Office said it best:

"A thirty year mortgage at Michael's age essentially means that he's buying a coffin. If I were buying my coffin, I would get one with thicker walls... so you couldn't hear the other dead people."

We're not necessarily as old as Michael Scott, but it's crazy to know that we're going to be in debt for the next 30 years! Yikes! 

We don't close until April 2, but that doesn't mean that I haven't had visions of home improvement dancing in my head... paint colors, carpet swatches, and light fixtures, oh my!

Here's a picture of la casa:
Cute, isn't it? It's in a great area in Orem and seems like a really nice neighborhood. Then again, I haven't met the neighbors. Once again, The Office put it best:
Michael Scott: Where are all the hot people? I was told that there would be all these attractive singles.
Realtor: Who told you that?
Michael Scott: As far as I can tell, I'm the best looking person here. [later] There's a basic principle in real estate that you should never be the best-looking person in the development. It's just historic common sense because if you are, then you have no place to go but to go down.

Let's hope that we're not the best looking people in the neighborhood, right?
