Home, Home on the Range

Drum roll please! I think it is safe to say that this house is ours! While we are still waiting on the keys it is pretty likely that nothing is going to keep us from getting this house at this point. I am SO excited to have some space! We are going from 1,100 sq. feet to 3,400! Am I intimidated by the size? Not even. I can not WAIT to have room to store all this baby stuff and have a closet in which all my clothes fit so I don't have to keep half in the garage. I also can't wait to have more than one bathroom! And a real dishwasher! And windows that open and close! All the little things. :)

While this house is just wonderful there are a few things I want to change. I hope you are as good as seeing the potential as I am. :)
to do: trim roses and change front walkway plants
i love this garage door!

a huge front porch! totally painting our current Adirondack chairs black for this space

view from the front door

to the right of the front door, living room

to the left of the front door, dining room
living room in foreground. we plan on walling this off and turning the other part of the room into our office

family room. to do: paint all the oak cabinetry and mantel white. eventually get lighter carpet.

a HUGE kitchen! you could fit two of our old kitchen's in here! to do: paint the cabinetry white. it's too monochrome for me as is.

upstairs master

master bath

hallelujah! a walk in closet! is it bad this is one of my favorite room?!?!

master bath looking at master bedroom. to do: paint cabinets white, change counter top

looking out from the master at the rest of the upstairs. a nice tv area for the kids straight ahead

b's jack and jill bathroom

jack and jill shower

guest bath upstairs

guest bedroom, but eventually a child's bedroom God willing!
back yard to do: um, grass. and some serious trimming.

who wants to jacuzzi or swim? might i be tan this summer? how exciting! but wait, that means i have to get in a swimsuit post baby. blech. 

And there you have it! I am clearly excited and really hoping that I get those keys pronto! To all our local friends...free lunch for your strong muscles! Have a great weekend!
