You know those moments where you just feel completely grown up?
This was one of those... it was the first time we walked in to a house and looked at it thinking "could we live here?"..."where would the furniture go?"... "what color would we paint it?"...
We look at houses online all the time, but this was the first real life experience with the anticipation of maybe wanting to buy it.
...and it was cute! Not perfect, but it had what we call 'bones'.
One of the first things I'd do?
Paint those little garage doors a different color.
I didn't mind the yellow house.
I did mind the over use of yellow on the garage doors.
It was hugemongous.
Probably too big - but it was a DEAL.
And you know how us people like our deals.
Look at that natural light! 'Natural light' is music to my ears.
I walked in and already placed a little table there...
heck, I already placed us there eating breakfast and having coffee. Sigh.
The kitchen? It needed the most work.
New appliances, new paint on the cabinets, new stove hood and new light.
But it had bones.
Plus - a window over the sink is one of those things on my "list".
It was a great house.
For a great price (when you didn't count in the unnecessary necessities I considered completely necessary).
We crunched numbers, we even discussed putting an offer on the house.
...in the end, we received one of those signs from God that said "just hold off a bit, there's a little bit something different I've got planned for your future".
So here we are... at one time house hunters, now just trying to figure out what city we want that house to be in. Oy vey.
