We bought our first home!

Our new home in Pueblo, CO

On Feb. 5 we arrived in Colorado. Monday morning (the 8th) we visited a realtor to assist us with finding a rental home. Instead, they showed us how much money we would be wasting on someone else's mortgage. So, we ended up buying our first home. We moved in on Feb. 9th and closed on the 26th! Thank goodness for VA loans, it made the process quick and painless. Next month, landscapers will begin on our yard and it'll finally be complete! The best part is it's about 45 miles from Fort Carson, yet we're still surrounded by a few military families. We wanted to be far from post so that when he retires we won't be to close to the post anymore. I think this is the perfect home for us and we're so blessed to have such a great experience and a beautiful home.

Here are a few pictures of the inside:

Our dining room (hoping to get a new table soon).

Our home has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, basement, loft, and nice size backyard. I have not finished the guest room or loft yet, so when I do there will be more pictures. Any decorating ideas, links, or tips would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
