Making It Official...We're Moving!

I contemplated about writing this post since I don't have any pictures but time is ticking and I wanted you lovelies to know what was going on!
I've mentioned a few times that we are finally selling our house after 15 months of it being on the market!!
{Are ya smiling with me?}
The buyer wants in as soon as possible.  So we thought we'd rent for a little bit and not be in a rush to find something to buy. We've looked on and off over the last 15 months and just couldn't find what we really wanted.  Which basically is a little bit of land and a bigger house. Either the properties we were finding were out of our price range or the houses desperately needed to be updated.  
Well I'm happy to report that we, by Divine Providence, found a house to buy.  
{God is so good!}
Honestly at first I wasn't excited....there's some cons and I was trying to figure out in my mind how to overcome them before I was to the excited point that I'm at now.  But God had me make a Pros/Cons list and He brought to my memory some things I had forgotten that I wanted in a house.  

Pros: 14   Cons:  2
{Some of the cons we'll work on immediately...the ones under the line. ☺}

Did ya catch that? I get a crafting space!! Whoopee!!
Just a little about the house...
It's a 2022 square foot house built in 1975 that's been completely redone on the inside.  It's on 5.27 acres! 
And it's 10 minutes from our church and only 15-20 minutes from plenty of shopping!  I'm having to sacrifice closet space and a full bath in the master bath (it's 3/4 bath).  It worked out that I'm getting a pantry and island made for the kitchen! 
Everything is just falling into place.  
And our payment is going to be less then we are paying for an 1200 square foot house!!
I. Am. Excited!
So I said all that to say this...posts may be fewer the next month or so until we get settled. 
Show & Share on Wednesdays will continue...I'd love to see some closet storage ideas. Hint, hint.  And I've got some great guests lined up for Thursdays in my The Best of Me series.  The Birchbox Beauty Bash is continuing too.  Other than that I'm just not sure, we'll see how it goes but at least you'll know what's going on!
I'm sorry I have no pictures but as soon as I can I promise to show ya!

And now it's official!!

Happy Monday!

So excited for you!!!! said...

Yay!! That is so exciting! Your cons sound just like mine... we went from a walk-in master closet plus a closet (and 2 dressers plus 4 built-in drawers) to 1 regular size closet and 1 dresser when we moved. It has been a challenge- add in my tubs of maternity clothes that I'm kind of wearing, but not quite out of my regular clothes and we've got ourselves a mini disaster in our bedroom! BUT... we're figuring it out and it's all worth it :) We also downsized on our master bathroom- I told my husband the 1st week that we'd just need to not have to be getting ready in the morning at the same time or I'd probably push him outta my way... and so far, that's worked out well too :) Good luck with everything, and I can't wait to see updates on your new house!
