I dropped the bomb on my parents yesterday. I was...terrified to tell them. They aren't the most easy going parents out there. Ones that believe living together before marriage is unacceptable and buying a house with a boyfriend is basically committing murder. However, they were surprisingly okay with everything. I think they might kill me in my sleep after it settles in. My father was upset that I didn't tell him sooner so he could have a say in it all. My point exactly as to why I didn't. I didn't want the trouble of him getting offended when I didn't take his advice. I have set up an appointment with the sellers this Friday so that I can take my parents to the house and they can have their own private tour. They can ask whatever questions they want and see for themselves what a great job we've done in picking this house out.
Next step is having the lawyer write up the contract for everything and then once we sign it we can close on the house and it is ours. We will own a house. Holy crap.
So now for the pictures of the house! I took a lot so here are the main aspects of the house.

Another addition to our life: Chancho sent in his request for the DVO, SVU position. Apparently they need a DVO to help handle cases over in SVU so he thought "why not?". His application is waiting on someones desk right now. He probably will hear back when we get back from our cruise.
