House Hunting.

On Saturday we put an offer in on a house.  We've decided we want to move into town because
A. We sold our truck and now only have one vehicle, which leaves Mason and I stranded when Tyler is at work.
B. Tyler will be able to walk to work, therefore saving on gas (and we won't be stranded any longer).
C. To feel more like a part of our new community, since now we live outside a completely different town in a completely different school district than my husband teaches in.
D. More entertainment for the little guy and me (library, park, grocery store..) that we can walk to.


So, here's a peak at our dream house:



The kitchen.



The bathroom.



Tyler's Basketball Room.



The backyard.



Isn't it.... perfect?


Well, here's the house we actually put an offer in on.






The yard is severely overgrown.
The kitchen is teeny tiny.
The carpet is gross.
There is a dead tree that needs cut down.
The is a fallen tree that needs hauled away.
The toilet is pink.
The second bathroom is also the hallway from the garage to the basement.
The windows are old.


BUT.


We like it.  And we have some big dreams.  BIG dreams.


Now, we just need buy it.

I like it! It's got serious 'cute' factor, and the 'good bones' are there ... can't wait to see inside pics :)

As long as you have room to grow & determination to make it "yours" you'll be fine!

This is hilarious. And don't knock a pink toilet! My beau's bathroom fixtures are ALL in pink -- toilet, sink and tub -- and it cracks me up.

Good luck! Pink toilet. Yup I remember those days. Our house had a pink tub with powder blue tiled walls when we bought it - talk about GROSS. Luckily my husband was able to gut it a few years ago and it's a normal bathroom now. LOL. Fixing stuff take time but you can do it! Dream big and good luck! :) Keep us posted!
