So, last you all heard, I scared off a listing agent with my super awesome house hunting skills.
Things have changed since then.
I have the key to the new house in my pocket, actually.
We had an appointment to see a house in a beautiful neighborhood this past Sunday.
On Saturday, while searching for the ad on Craigslist to confirm our appointment, I came across another ad for a house on the other side of town.
I called the ad, jumped for joy when Scott didn't answer and a sweet lady did, and made plans to check out the listing within the hour.
I fell in love.
It's the same floor plan as my childhood home (except that this house is 4 bedrooms, not 3) and has an enclosed patio that has been converted into an extra room.
The converted room is just off of the livingroom and perfect to use as a playroom!
And the extra bedroom is going to be...are you ready for this...A CRAFT ROOM!
I'm sure Hubby will set up a desk and put his laptop on it from time to time, but I'm taking over with my fabric collection and paper cutting machines and supplies.
The entire house is smaller than our current house, but the floorplan is open and upgraded with new paint and carpet.
The best part: Hubby doesn't have to struggle getting up and down stairs anymore!
I'm hoping to re-open my home childcare & preschool so that I can help out with our new monthly payment.
Lots of exciting new things happening for us!
Here's a photo of our new home (minus the van in the driveway and the sign in the yard):
Please forgive the quality- the photo is from the Craigslist ad.
I'll be blogging as much as possible when I'm not packing or freaking out, but if Sugar and Dots becomes a little quiet anytime soon, you'll know why.
