I am the kind person who looks at 10 houses and picks one. Somehow on this house search, it didn’t go exactly as planned. I looked at a few more than ten. Thirty-eight more to be exact.
Yep, when I finally found the house, it was the 48th house I toured. Yikes! God Bless my realtor. It really was a chore. The good news is that I adore our new house. It’s perfect. Well, as perfect as you can get when you are buying an existing house.
I’m sure that I will post more about the house in the future but for now, here are some pictures from our days on the hunt for the perfect house.
The house we finally decided upon also has a pink room. It was a win-win for the all of us.
After having our contract accepted, Molly and I celebrated at a local ice cream place.Dad went to work. Poor Dad.
Molly loved this place because in addition to ice cream, they had kiddie rides. For $.50 you could bob up and down for about a minute. How that is considered fun is beyond me. Must be a 5-year-old thing.
Once we found a house, I called the school district inquiring about schools. We stopped by Molly’s new school and the principal just happened to be outside. In the middle of summer. When school was out of session. Imagine our luck.
We signed the contract on the new house without Tony even seeing it. The day after we signed, he finally got a tour of the place. Good thing he approved!
I don’t feel comfortable posting pictures of someone else’s house, so I won’t give you the full tour until it becomes our house.
Here’s a sneak peek…we are standing in the foyer. Hope to see a lot of pictures from this location in the near future! Keep your fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly with the closing on our current house and our new house.
Who am I kidding. It won’t go smoothly. Let’s just hope we close!
I am sooooo ready to get off of this house selling/hunting crazy train!
