We found a house!!

Sorry I have not posted in a while. My computer crapped out on me. Right now as I type, it is in surgery. I found a highly qualified computer Dr who was willing to work on my beloved laptop for the low low price of...$50. I mean really you can't beat that. The only thing that was wrong with it was that the power cord no longer connected inside. So basically he is just replacing a tiny little prong on the inside of the computer. Hummm, when I think about it that way, $50 doesn't seem like such a great deal anymore.

OK back to the house. So in case you missed it. We are moving!! I am super stoked. This past weekend we went house hunting. It was so much fun. We only went to two neighborhoods before we found "THE HOUSE". Here it is!!

As you can tell this is not an actual picture. Our house is not finished being built yet, so this is just the mock up version of it.

We put in an offer on Tuesday, offering them full asking price (which they had already reduced) but we were asking for alot of upgrades. The house comes with all stainless appliances except the fridge, so we asked for that. They also don't sod the back yard, they just throw grass seed. So we asked for sod. We asked for them to pay closing costs. Most importantly we asked for a privacy fence. We were all very sure that were going to send us a counter offer, which they did. However the counter offer was really great. They were going to give us all of the upgrades we wanted, except for the fence. Since the fence was the most important part to us, we offered to up our asking price to cover half of the fence if they covered the other half. DEAL!! They accepted and we are now officially UNDER CONTRACT! I am so excited for this move now.

The new house is 4 bedrooms 2.5baths and 2,400sqft. Oh and the best part. It has a fenced in back yard for both the dogs and London. Right now we have 3 bedrooms 2 bath and 1600 sq ft, so this is definitely an upgrade for us. I will be honest, I am not sure how I feel about the house being 2 story. I just have this fear of London falling down the stairs, but that is why they make baby gates I guess. The master bedroom is on the first floor, so it will be nice to have some privacy. Right now London's room is off the kitchen, but in the new house he will be upstairs. Yay! Now I won't have to cook in silence anymore. Another great thing about the new house is that, since it is still being built we get to pick out the colors for everything. Although, trying to pick out that stuff with my husband might just start WWIII. Who knows my next post might be entitled "DIVORCE". Only kidding, I love you honey! (I know he secretly reads this.)

OK well that is all from me for now. I need to go get packing!

How great!! Sounds like a fantastc house. Once London goes up and down the stairs a few times he will be a pro at it and you won't worry so much. Or just leave a pile of pillows at the bottom, lol!
