Hi, My name is Devon Marie 🙂 I’m 23 years old and living in Washington state.
I bought my first house a year and a half ago. It was a huge goal of mine and I worked really hard to make it possible.
Fun face about me: I have been obsessed with the thought of buying a house for years and years. I would walk down to the gas station to grab the little free real estate books and dig through the listings for hours. Growing up with a single mom, we always rented so the idea of home ownership along with the stability and permanent-ness always fascinated me. Weird? Maybe, but now that I’m here, as a homeowner, the wheels in my head never stop turning as I plan for our house projects, remodeling, decorating, and whatever else may come my way.
Things can be busy around here! I’m a manager of a bank full time, full time dog and cat mom, being a girlfriend, and try to squeeze video games into the mix as well.
(Building houses on the sims is amazing 😉 )
I purchased my house in November of 2016. It is a three bedroom two bathroom rancher built in the fifties.
It has a wood stove for the cool winter nights, two other fireplaces, a sun room, a laundry shoot, and a bar in the basement.
I’ve done a ton of projects so far, including ripping out the carpet, painting the kitchen, whitewashing my fireplace, and a big living room transformation. It’s all documented on the blog too!
Jason and I have been together for about three years. We met in high school but it wasn’t the right time in our lives yet. He is sweet, understanding, and puts up with my project ideas even when I say ‘we’ are going to them and ‘we’ really means ‘him’ with me cheering him on. In all reality, we both have a lot of fun in everything we do.
One dog and two cats truthfully run this house.
Bruce is our puppy. Yes he’s big! He will be one year in June of 2018. He is a mutt and very lovable. He is a pitbull, Rottweiler, German Shepard, and pug mix. I know it’s crazyy. He enjoys taking hikes, making squeaky toys not squeak anymore, playing with the cats, and being a good boy
O’Malley was our first pet besides my fish, which O’Malley actually killed. This fella is a little trouble maker but is secretly a sweetheart. His hobbies include venturing outdoors for nights and days on end, hanging close around the peoples, and investigating cars, mice, trees, neighbor’s garages, pretty much nothing is off the table for him.
He thinks he runs the house, most of the time he does.
Cora is my torti cat, the breed is called tortoise shell. She is black with white, brown, and orange colored specks. Her hobbies include being a love bug, running from anything that seems scary, running really fast from one side of the room to another, and looking very cute next to Halloween decorations. v
