It’s getting real!!!

I didn’t want to say anything until it was official but…. looks like this family of 3 is moving to a bigger playground!

A few weeks ago we found this amazing home that has everything we are looking for. Some of my favorites are a wall big enough in the entry way for a coat closet just like this, separate laundry room, garage, 4 bedrooms (so one of them will be my art room), a large master bedroom with soaking tub and backyard for P to play in! Here are a few pictures. Since a family is still living there, I didn’t want to post pictures of their personal belongings. It is kind of like a split level so there are four floors (the forth being a one room loft), laundry room, coat closet, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, living room, four bedrooms, two full and one half bath, garage and a crawl space.

I am so excited to be able to document this whole process and share all of the ideas I have for the new house! I have already created in inspirational board (to come in a little bit). Just keep your fingers crossed because this was a short sale and so it isn’t really “ours” yet. We are waiting to hear back from the bank but are optimistic they will be satisfied with our offer.

In the meantime, we have begun the process of selling our home since we have to close on our current house before we can close on a new one. We love our Realtor and the company we are working with. A moving company they work with came out to give us a quote on packing our house and moving it. Not sure if I will need help packing but we wanted to get a quote just in case. They came and put up the sign today and listed in online. Rob and I spent yesterday evening making sure the house was all tidy and clean. It wasn’t too much of a project due to my awesome cleaning schedule and always having the house pretty put together.

I also made a few notes for those coming to look at the house. It included info on Flip Flop & Alice (with pictures) and a note about some of the bigger items in the house included and not included.

I can’t wait to share all the excitement to come with you all!!!

    Congrats Mary. I love the look of your new home (positive thinking). Also it will be fun to see you decorate it from scratch.

    I just love the info station you set up for realtors and potential buyers. I have never seen anything like it. I love that you included pictures of your fur family as well as detaiked info. Genius.
