WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!  I didn't wanna say anything until it was official because I didn't want to jinx it like I did last time.  But, IT'S OFFICIAL!  We move in the weekend before Thanksgiving and close on November 2.  WOO HOO!!!  It is the most beautiful house I have ever seen ever.  I was getting so frustrated.  I felt like I was doing just so much work to find us the perfect place to live.  We had to have driven over 1000 miles to go view all of them, and we probably walked through a good 25 different homes that didn't "feel" right.  Then, we put an offer in on one, but it already had a contingency offer on it, and their house sold, so they bought it.  Then, we put an offer in on a second one, and someone else's offer was accepted on that one, too.  It was SO discouraging!  In the end, I'm glad all of that happened, because THIS house is so much better than those!

Oh, pictures!

This is the front of the house.  The landscaping is really gorgeous.

This is the living room.  This is the only room in the house that I feel like it doesn't have much personality.  It needs a pretty wall color.  We do love how big the windows are and that they go almost to the floor.
THIS IS THE MOST WONDERFUL KITCHEN EVAAAAR!!  The counters are gorgeous, and the appliances stay, and I LOVE that built-in desk for the kids to do homework, and the VIEW out that sink window is

The dining room goes onto the back deck, also with a gorgeous view.  That wall back there is a textured wallpaper that has been painted red.  I stood there for a while just feeling up the wall.  Like Get Him To The Greek.

This is where the magic happens!  It is also red.  And big.  The closet in here is as big as a room!

MY VERY OWN SPACE!!!  This is the loft upstairs.  My books and my reading couch and my pretty cedar chest go here, and also my sewing stuff!  I can get back to sewing pretty things, and it will be fabulous!

I love this enormous window.  Two-story entry way.

The deck off the dining room.  THIS IS WHERE I WILL HAVE MY COFFEE!  Looking at this amazing view and listening to the birds.

Front porch!  Quick, get thee to Cracker Barrel and purchase some rocking chairs!  Sometimes, I will have my coffee here instead, to break up the monotony.

This little barn is where we would like to put chickens.  Szechuan Farms, we will call it.  I will make a tiny sign to go above the tiny door.  Technically, it's against covenants, but we're gonna try to work around it.  We want eggs.

GIANT GARAGE OF DOOM!!  Has a big upstairs loft thingie, too, for things like storage or an apartment.

We're on the lake!!!  This is my coffee-drinking view every morning.

It's awesome, amiright?  The day we bought it, we were too excited to sleep, so we decided to name it.  At 5:30 a.m.  It had to be something badass and actiony, since that's what we are.  Ninja House eventually turned into Jackie Chan Estates and Szechuan Chicken Farms.  You can't go wrong, really.  I mean, the place has to be awesome with a name like that.
