The Next Step in Becoming a Real, Live Grown-Up!

Holy Crap! Chud and I just put in an offer on this lovely gem of a house. It might be the scariest and most exciting thing I've ever done. This is way more nerve wracking than getting married!
Let me tell you all about our potential home sweet home:
-- It was built in 1956 and has had the same owners for 50 years. On our first visit, it was clear that they've kept the house in impeccable shape! I'm fairly certain they won't find anything huge or scary in the inspection.
--It has a beautiful front and back yard with a shed and some dogwood trees. If it were up to me, we'd have the biggest yard we could find, but Chud's main concern is cutting the grass, so this one is perfect. Not too big, not too small.
--It sits on a cul de sac where kids like to ride bikes. There's a street lamp in our front yard. There's a small porch on the front which I plan to put a fence around someday so it looks like a real porch - with a rocking chair. I have to have a rocking chair.
--3 bedrooms, one bathroom, and a finished basement with a shower stall in it. A great house for hosting out-of-town guests, like our family!
--new roof with gutter guards. I guess that's good but I don't know anything about gutters.
--the neighborhood is old, cute and quiet. It's still close to all the fun things going on in Louisville but it's far away from the city sounds. The elementary school nearby is not that great, but we don't have to send our kids there if we don't want to.
Overall, it's the perfect house for us! If all goes well we could be moving again in a month. Yipes!

ooohhhh, I love it! A cul-de-sac is wonderful for (future) children! The new roof and gutters look great, too. I want to see some inside pics! :)
