  • Fannie’s Story-Part 5
If you are new (which many of you are) go back and check out part 1-4 to catch up on #fanniesstory 
So we’ve covered when we first met Fannie, we’ve covered why she’s called Fannie, and we’ve covered seeing “The Murder House”. After checking out the murder house we decided to give Fannie another look.  So we called a realtor to get us in for a showing to see if we really wanted to go down the road of actually buying a house (remember, at this point we had only lived in Tulsa for about 6 months, but Brian and I got engaged after only about 6 months so it’s kind of par for the course with us). We set a time, met the realtor at the house, stepped through the front door and stood in the empty living room with that fabulous arch (someday, when’s she’s clean and presentable I will do a house tour in stories) and fell in love. I could see what apparently no one else had seen in the year she had sat on the market. I could see past the feast of 80s wallpaper (a different one for every room), the ugly yellow trim in the kitchen, the tile counters, the forest green bathtub, and the weird old house smell. I was sold, this would be my house. Now we just had to figure out how to actually buy a house... we were 27 at the time and had no clue how buy a house. Obviously we figured it out, and after several months of struggle, we finally closed on the house at the end of January 2012 and spent our first night here sometime in mid February. The day we closed the first thing we did was rush over to the house and start peeling wallpaper in what would be our master bedroom (just so we felt it was really ours). It was burgundy with little white dots and it came off the walls so easy I thought this whole home ownership and renovation thing was going to be a piece of cake. Boy was I wrong! But it has been the most rewarding thing in my life (to date) and I have a very hard time imagining calling anywhere but Fannie (and Tulsa) home.
