Our New Home!

I know most of you know by now that we have moved!! Especially if you follow me on IG or twitter, but if you don’t then let me tell you again, WE HAVE MOVED!!!

We have been looking for a very long time. We had a contract on a house that me and Matt fell in love with this past April but we needed to sell our house first in order for it to workout. Well, someone swooped in under our contract and we just couldn’t do what we needed to at that time to save it. Have you heard that saying “everything happens for a reason”? Well, in this case it is completely true. We have our dream home and if it wasn’t for us losing the other house we probably wouldn’t be here. We made our offer to the seller and actually ended up getting an offer on ours that same week. We closed on everything my birthday and it was the best.birthday.present.ever. I am so happy and ecstatic for our family. We are going to have a long life here full of friends and family to help us make memories.

We are still on the lake, thank goodness; that’s something we both did not want to do without. Theres just something about waking up and looking at the lake. Peace of mind I guess. We have a very big lot all to ourselves that makes a point onto the lake so it is very private which is great if Maddie is your daughter because you know…. all of the nakedness that goes on with that child. We have a pier and a boat ramp! We will build a boat house in the future but for now it will definitely do. There is a huge driveway!! Y’all might not think that is a big thing but it is to us who had a gravel driveway before and it is to our kids since they can ride their bikes right at home! The house has an amazing wrap around porch which is one of my favorites, I have always wanted a big porch. Matt even has his own little shop too! A building that’s up near the top of our lot and its all his! Complete with tools, a lawnmower and about to have a pool table in there too. He is head over heels in love with the fact he has his own space.

Our home has 4 bedrooms with an additional open room and 4 baths. Guess what? I have my own space too!!! I am using one of the rooms as a craft room. Why not a guest bedroom you ask? Ummm, because I have been working out of a closet for 4 years now and want to be able to move both my elbows up and down without hitting them on a door LOL. I have big plans and hopes for things I want to accomplish and me having my own space will help that. I might make it into a guest room one day but for now I am calling it all mine. JP has his own room and the girls share a room. All of our bedrooms are on the second floor and the craft room and additional room is on the first. The additional room is right off the kitchen and I have made it into a playroom.

I can’t wait to show everything. I am just not quite ready yet! I plan on doing a home tour soon but for now I am giving you pictures of the outside of the house.
