Holy Crap, we bought a house!!!

We did not intend on buying a house at this moment but just happened to come across a property up for auction. It looked interesting so not having ever been to a house auction we dropped off the older kids at Grandmas and headed off to the house auction with our bank letter, checkbook and baby on my chest and bought a house.

It was rather shocking and intense because in just a matter if 6 minutes we agreed to purchase this house.and won the auction. I totally cried! I just stood behind my husband and let him to the bidding I had no idea what I did or did not want to pay for this house so I just let him go at it!

This house needs work, we knew in order to get a nice big chunk of land we would need to fix it up.

I am not in love with the house, but I am in love with the land.

29 days later here we are keys in hand!
