Home Sweet Home

Kevin and I have bought our first home! It still seems so surreal, I thought we would never be able to buy a home in Southern California.
It's a foreclosure in La Mirada. It needs A LOT of work, but Kevin has always been pretty handy so I'm not too worried (no pressure Kevin!). It will be a "fun" family project to make the new house our home.

I can't wait to post our before and after pictures. We should close escrow mid-May. After we get home from Hawaii and before we go to the Outer Banks.

Congrats on your new home! I am so sad you guys are leaving (but I guess it's for a good reason)! I definitely want to see before and after pictures (those are always fun)!

I was born in La Mirada! I lived in Whittier until I was 10 when my family moved to yl. My parents bought a forclosure in yl and gutted it. We all slept on mattresses in the family room and ate fast food for a couple weeks because the rest of the house was ripped apart. That is so exciting for you guys! Congratulations. Will you email me your phone number so that I can call you in a month when we get to Cypress? I will need friends since Sean will be studying 24/7. :(
