On to the next one

Another offer! We have found a fantastic house in Bluff Park! I found it one evening while Jonathan and I were cooking dinner. It has 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths, updated eat in kitchen, dining room, sunroom, basement, and den.The back yard is entirely fenced in and the neighbors even have dogs that would be perfect for Dax to play with, especially since they have dug a hole under then fence.

We love that the house has beautiful hard wood floors, smooth ceilings, and new light fixtures. The kitchen has granite countertops, new backsplash, and new appliances (even though they are white.) We are really pleased with this home and love that it has basement parking for both our cars. The garage also has a workshop so you know that will mean craft time Katie is back!!!

I already know where I want the furniture to go and have started looking at fabrics and paint colors online. Jonathan likes it a lot, but does not know how he feels about being the second house in the neighborhood. I had to remind him that on the other house he disliked it being so far in and now this one is too close to the edge. Oh, how we forget!

The offer is back in our court and I think we will accept tomorrow based on some minor details. I will be excited to annouce when we are under contract, but I am definitely apprehensive something will go wrong. Sorry I am being Debbie Downer, but let's face it, those things do happen. Regardless, if it is meant to be then things will happen for us. It always does.

The house has a generator, which is fantastic in case of icestorms (or just cool for me to say we have one)

Dining room looking into den and back sunroom and the fireplace is wood burning

New appliances, but why white? Anyone want to buy this from me?

Master bedroom, but the other guest rooms are very similar

Master bathroom

We are really excited and cannot wait to report what will come next. I know we are ready for more space, a dishwasher, a yard, and having access to the things that make life comfortable. I am really pleased that this has brought Jonathan and I closer together both literally and figuratively!
