They put a SOLD sign on our patch of grass. How exciting?!

Design Center

I knew that customizing our new home would not be the easiest thing in the world, but HOLY STRESSFUL DECISIONS!! The last thing I ever expected to argue with Andrew about was crown molding on cabinets (he really, really wanted it... go figure). We got through it though and all the decisions have been made (albeit a tad over budget). Now we just sit back and wait for them to start building. Tick, tock, tick, tock...

It is kind of weird looking at your future home as a collection of 12 x 12 swatches piled on a table. Here are some of our major choices:

We picked our patch of grass!

It is hard to believe that our new house will soon be sitting on this small patch of grass. (I think we are actually standing in our breakfast nook.) I know that it is hard for you north-easterners to get over our lack of "land." For us though, our .19 acres is the perfect fit!

Our New Home

Andrew and I bought a new house this week. Yes, you heard correctly, WE BOUGHT A NEW HOUSE!!

On Tuesday, we had a meeting with a Sales Representative in a neighborhood we were interested in building a new home in. The deal they presented us with was too good to pass up, so we arranged an appointment to see a model home on Wednesday. It was amazing and we fell in love with it instantly. By Wednesday night, we had picked a piece of property and contracts were signed.

Wow - what a week!! The house is scheduled to be ready in late February. I'll keep you posted on the progress. This is what the floor plan looks like... we are SO excited!

Welcome to our new blog!

It is no secret that I am the worst phone correspondent ever. I am terrible at keeping in touch with people. (Andrew is much better at keeping regular phone contact.) What I do constantly though is – take photos and send emails. I usually share photos with anyone I think might care what is going on in our life.

Now, with this blog, you can tune-in and catch up on our lives any time you'd like!
