We are buying a HOUSE!!

I'm so excited! and just wanted to share.

I am very excited to share our wonderful news!  We got through negotiations and we are buying a new house!!  I feel like I should wait til closing to share, but I"m so excited.  Here are some photo's.  I copied them off the internet from the realtor, so they are a little blurry enlarged, but you can get the idea.  Here is a link to a U-tube video of the house

and for all my card swapping friends, my new address starting in March will be:
18535 Blanca Springs Ct, Humble, TX 77346
Ok, I'm getting ahead of myself.  I should wait til closing to start passing out the address!  We should close somewhere around the beginning of Feb I think.


We have a few things we want to do before moving in. 


 We want to put wood down in the livingroom and dining room area's.
And replace that dining room lighting fixture.  I LOVE the plantation shutters in the dining room and study area's. 


 This my friends, will be my studio!!  I'm sooo excited!  This is a study at the front of the house and we are going to extend the tile into this area and put up french doors at this large opening.  I've been thinking about paint.  I think I'm go to go with 1 maybe 2 walls of RED!!!!  This is the room I am most excited about!!


 Eventually upgrade the counters but there is nothing wrong with these and the cabinets on the other side are 42".  Plenty of room for storage as well as a pantry at the end near the frig.  The great thing is everything is nuetral, so we have a blank canvas to work with!


The hardest part for me will be deciding on paint here.  The breakfast area, kitchen and livingroom are open, so it needs to coordinate.  We are replacing that back door with one tha doesn't have glass so we can install a doggy door.  Oh how I have missed the doggy door we had in Florida.  And the best part ... I want be locked in the house with my daughters 2 cats!  Hmmm, wonder what the odds are of them "getting lost"???  sshhh, don't tell my daughter I said that, teehee.


I'm shopping for a new couch and chair.  Ours are really old.


 This bedroom is huge and I love all the big windows.


There are 2 other bedrooms and another bathroom as well.

This was such a great deal for us in comparison to the house we had in Florida.
I am praising God for this blessing.  I still can't believe the deal we got for a house in this great condition.

Lots to do before moving in!!

The neighborhood is wonderful and the community has a sports complex, which is not a plus for me, but I'm going to let you in on a little secret ... Fred wants to do an Iron Man someday (shhhh don't tell him I let the cat out of the bag).  So the olympic size pool and gym will come in handy for training and he want have to go far.  He had been driving to down town Houston to a park and meeting with a running group.

Thank you so much for letting me share!
Have a great day,
Melisa
