Hi ladies- Just thought I'd give an update.

So I know a few months back I mentioned that SO and I were selling our house, and upgrading to a new home. But due to the closing being pushed back and money needed for the closing of the house we sold, he needed to put the last ring payment on hold for a bit.

Well, I am happy to report that we are all set. We closed on the house we sold, and found our DREAM house! Its in such a beautiful, elegant neighborhood. Its our "being a family house". It has all the things I was looking for: 4 bedrooms (for plenty of kids), a hall bath upstairs, a master suite, master bath, a FABBBBBB walk in closet for all my shoes (lol), an incredible kitchen with island perfect for gatherings, a big dining room, downstairs bath, a formal dining room, a huge great room (family room), a finished basement, and a huge backyard. YYEEAAHHHHH!


Sorry to ramble, but my biggest problem with our first house, is it wasnt conducive to entertaining. I am one of 6 kids, so when my family comes over, we need SPACE. So I am so excited to have this house for SO and I to raise a family in, and have everyone over for thanksgiving, xmas, easter, etc!

Sooo....anyway now that thats done with, the ring production was continued 2 weeks ago, and the ring should be done by the end of this week! YYEEAAHHH!
(Now all i have to do is wait for him to use the ring! HAHA)

Ooh that''s really exciting news!! A new house and a ring! I must say, I''m quite jealous.

I too would love to see pics! Are you design savvy? I mean, are you good at interior design and that sort of thing? That''s honestly one of my biggest fears for when SO and I buy a home. I can do one or two rooms, but I think a whole house would be really daunting to me!


Anyway, congrats! Things certainly are coming together!

Oh man that''s double exciting! I''m really looking forward to the proposal, but I''m probably even more excited to have a house of my own eventually!

Congrats! (x2)

Thanks ladies! I must say I am thrilled!


Iowa- here is a pic, but not really a good shot. It looks much prettier without all the snow! LOL

Design savvy....yes and no. I'd like to think I have good taste, and know what I want the house to look like. But.....as far as coming up with the pieces, and putting everything together to make the final product what I want.....not really. I was just thinking of hiring someone to do it. Or when you buy at Ethan Allen (which I LOVE....and OBSESSED with Pottery Barn), they do complimentary design service. So I may just do that lol!

Oh my gosh that home is DREAMY!!!!!!!!!!
It reminds me a bit of the Home Alone house (which I've always loved)

ETA- Oh, and I am a HUGE lover of attached garages on the SIDE of the house. I'm not so much into the homes where the garage is all you see.
