Fourth Time's a Charm

So we got a house.. for real this time! Even though I am sick again with another sinus infection, we went house searching on Saturday. The first house we saw was a dud. "Oh great, I hope this isn't how today is going to go," I thought. The second house was nice, with gorgeous property, but needed some updating, and at the price they had it listed for, it was too much for us. So we went to the last house. From looking at the pics online, I knew it was going to be my favorite that we looked at that day. It had just been listed the day before, but from the get-go we knew it was going to have a lot of action. 4 showings were set up for Saturday, and multiple for Sunday as well.

As we walked around this house, I knew it was the one for us. It has a front porch, all hardwood floors on the first floor with the exception of one room, an awesome open kitchen with a breakfast nook with a bay window, a counter area that can fit 4 stools, a laundry/mud room, a covered deck with a ceiling fan, a brand new patio with built-in firepit, a super private yard, and a finished basement. The family room is wired for surround sound, which Brian is thrilled about, and there is a whole house Hepa-filtration system which is ah-may-zing for my allergies. It is in a great location and truly could not be more perfect for us; there are pretty much like no changes to even be made (I just want to paint the bedroom, that's it!). In fact, we like it more than the house we gave up. We are thrilled beyond belief that we are lucky enough to have gotten this perfect house. Thank you to everyone who has supported us in our search, we appreciate it so much! I will leave you with a sneak peak of the backyard deck/patio area!

  14. Oh my gosh! Looks so amazing! I am excited to see pictures, I'm going to need a full house tour!

    Everything always works out for the best, just think if you had gotten that other house Brain wouldn't have surround sound! (Oh and you'd have to deal with all those problems, bullet dodged for sure.)
