The seller accepted our offer!  :)  After some negotiating back and forth (and pretty big sacrificing on our part) we are finally under contract!  We asked the seller to include the washer and dryer (which we can tell was recently purchased) but because of her financial situation, she was not able to include them since she is renting and not sure if her rental will include those.  She also excluded the home warranty (which we asked her to include) but again, because of her situation, she was unable to include that.  But we are not worried about that because the house is still young and if something were to happen, we definitely would not ask her to front the funds, anyway.  No chance!  We have some kind of heart! :)  But we are so relieved about finally getting the show on the road.  Now, the only things that need to be done are the home inspection and having an appraiser come to the home.  The tricky part is that with an FHA loan, the house must appraise for at least the purchase price . . . if it doesn't, the seller must lower her asking price to the appraisal value or we walk.  Boo.  We are praying that that doesn't happen.  If all goes well, hopefully we will close in about 30 days! Eeeeeek!!!! :)

We have already picked out all of the paint colors, too!  That was probably the easiest thing Josh and I have done.  Don't most couples have a hard time compromising with paint?  We had more issues registering haha! 

And just for kicks and giggles, I am going to show you our house!  There are 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, living room, family room, dining room, and unfinished basement.
