Would You Like a Little Whine With That Cheese?

Ok, I've actually finished all of my house projects, which is GOOD, except for that now I don't have anything to distract me from the fact that I have to wait 2 1/2 months before we can think about putting our house on the market. If it were me, I would try to sell my house tomorrow and buy this house or maybe this house but as it so happens I am married to someone is, shall we say practical? And a little bit financially responsible? But ohmigosh isn't this one just adorable? I knew this would happen. Now that the house is in order the holidays are almost upon us and it does seem a little bit wierd to think about closing on a new house on Christmas. Plus, at the beginning of next year we have some extra money coming in that would put us in a better place as far as moving expenses go and any updating/remodeling that may have to be done on an older home.

I get that it's better this way. But it doens't mean that I won't pout about it. We're actually meeting with a real estate agent in two weeks to see a few homes and hopefully nail down the exact neighborhood we want and to give him an idea of our style. I'm going to have to hold back from shouting out "I"LL TAKE IT! WHERE DO I SIGN?" I'm kind of hoping that the houses I love are in the g-h-e-t-t-o so I will be able to stop obsessing about it.


  1. I LOVE that first house. Good luck on your search! We're still waiting to find out/decide where we're going. Ethan has been offered a position near Peoria, but he's also going to Ohio to interview for one in a couple of weeks.

  2. I like how the first house is called a "Grand Old Mansion." It's probably surrounded by crack houses though since it's so cheap! Good luck to Ethan on his interview! Maybe you will be having your own house hunt soon?
