Tyson and I have been waiting for what feels like forever to tell you all so without further ado I would like to say...
It's true. I've been so scared to jinx it with any speculation before the keys were in our hands so I decided to wait until things were certain before I said anything for sure.
But it's for sure now!!
It's kind of a bummer that I'm not actually there for the great passing of the keys but Tyson's there and he got them for us. I would love to wax on with my feelings of pride in ownership and the joy of stimulating the economy with the biggest purchase of our lives, but let's be honest... You want pictures! Well, here ya go.
Here's a shot of the front of the house from across the street. It is a brand new house in a brand new development really close to where Tyson works.

You've already seen the kitchen, but here is a shot of the dining area! It's not a separate room, just an extension of the kitchen.

Here's the family room, it is right off of the kitchen.And here's a shot of the inside as if you were walking in the front door.

Let's go upstairs!! (hi tyson!)
When you get to the top of the stars there is a big, um, area. That is what we are looking at now!

Here is one of the bedrooms (there are 4 beds and 2.5 baths, did I mention that?)

Here is a bit of the master bath.

The landscapers were nice enough to ask Charlie Brown to donate his Christmas tree to our decor. I love it.
The landscaping is done by the way, it just wasn't done when I took these pictures. There is now a fence in the backyard as well.

And here are a few more of the new houses on our street. I hope it ends up being a great neighborhood. EEEEEE!!!!!

  6. CONGRATULATIONS! I'm so glad you found a house you love and it really is a beautiful home! That's always nice to find a brand new place to live in. And an added bonus to have your landscaping done for ya. Looks like you guys did a great job after all your worrying! Now I bet your are anxious to get back to your home and start decorating right?!

  7. Beautiful! I'm totally jealous as I sit here in my tiny one bedroom apt waiting for my laundry to dry so that I can run down three flights of stairs and haul it back up. And you have a garage...oh the delight! I bet there's even a pantry. The bags of food that are sitting on my kitchen floor at this moment would just die if they knew of the comfy shelfving they were missing out on. Congratulations!
