Want to know what we’ve been up to the past few weeks? We’ve peen painting and pruning and sprucing our house. Why? Because it’s time to sell that bad boy and move on to another house-child in need of a serious overhaul. That’s right. Michael and I are packing up and moving out!
One morning a few weeks ago, I was just sitting at my office minding my own Realtor business when the biggest diamond-in-the-rough house I had ever seen popped right onto my computer screen. Holy smokes. I couldn’t help but sneak a peek. Well, I snuck and I loved…but it was seriously in need of one heck of a cosmetic overhaul. I was sold but Michael would never go for this.
I was already preparing for the plethora of rebuttals that handsome pants fiancé of mine would throw my way upon learning of my latest scheme:
1. Why would we move when we finally have your house the way you want it?
2. Moving is such a pain.
3…and the big daddy million dollar good point…We have a backyard wedding planned for next March in THIS house!
…but, fortunately for me, the hazards of marrying a Realtor/remodelaholic are now very apparent to the fiancé. I took him by the house and to my surprise he loved it just as much as (dare I say even more than?) I did.
So new construction site here we come! We are closing on our new house next week and I can’t wait to share the frightening before pictures with you. Grab your teddy bear kids. Halloween is coming early this year.
Oh, yeah. And as for that whole wedding business. Don’t worry. It’s still happening…location TBD.
