Hey everyone. My family has had some CRAZY stuff going on lately, so I apologize for not posting more. My blog’s been a lower priority than I wanted it to be, but after this week I hope to be back to normal. Want to know what’s going on in my life???? Well, first….I’m not pregnant. So sorry to disappoint LOL. We just got back from vacation and my brother’s wedding in Florida….want to see some photos? STAY WITH ME…our big news is towards the bottom.
My brother and his now, wife, got married on Clearwater Beach, Florida. We stayed there for 5 days, then headed to Disney for a few days. We originally weren’t going to go to Disney, but we decided we really wanted to do something special with the kids before the chaos of the holidays.
So that’s where I’ve been for the past 10 days….then on top of it…here’s my BIG news.
We’re buying an awesome new house this week!
Yep! This Friday we close on the sale of our house and move into our new home. We’re purchasing a little 1982 ranch style home on 1.19 acres. It definitely needs some work done, but the current owners fixed up a lot of the inside prior to selling including new hardwood flooring. So we’re REALLY excited to start this new part of our lives and I’ll have a WHOLE NEW HOME to show you!! Want to see some photos from the listing?
Sure you do.
So first thing is first…we’ll be painting the outside of the home. The pea green/pink brick combo isn’t my forte, but I can see the potential in this little house!!
The house is a mere 1700 square feet, but the kitchen/dining/living room is all combined, which I love. Our current house has the same style floorplan and it makes small square footage so much better because no matter what, we can all be in the same living space during meals and relaxing time. The basement is the same size as the house, so we can add an additional 1000+ square feet to a finished basement, which is our first priority to complete.
The back of the house has a great 4 seasons room with an attached deck and gazebo on the back. The property itself is the PERFECT size for our family…plenty of space to play without too much so that upkeep is difficult. We couldn’t ask for a better place. The school district we’re entering is top notch for our area and we’re within a 1/2 mile of a great State Park with a very large lake and beach area.
So that’s our news!! Loads of new projects and fun things coming up for you guys in the future! I hope you’ll be patient with me these next few weeks and stay following me on Instagram for more moving/house updates!! Follow me at @thecardswedrew for up to date info!!
Wish us happy moving and keeping our sanity this week!!
