New House

Yesterday, we closed on our new house.  I think you know you are buying the right house when every time you go see it, you like it more and more.  When I first saw the pictures of this house, I was not impressed. Love the location and love the curb appeal, but I thought it looked old and it was just not what I envisioned as my dream house.

Then we went to checkout out in person and I was pleasantly surprised.  I saw the potential and I thought I can turn it into my dream house.  The third time I saw it, I was sure I can turn it into the house that I've always wanted.

And all this happened at super-warped speed.  We first set foot in the house on Wednesday and closed on it on Friday - just 10 days later.

This was the best picture I got of these three monkeys.

Matthew is getting angry with Mark for not smiling and getting this photo session over with, and Michael is just standing with his fake smile.

This first time these boys were all together at the new house!

Now, I am excited to get our major renovation started.  We are changing everything about the kitchen and the master bathroom and making updates to the rest of the house.  It will take about 8 weeks to complete everything so closing on the house in 10 days is a really great thing!

I love the way the house looks.

These pictures are from the listing website.  The house is empty now.  Interesting fact - Keith Brookings lived here with his family for a few years when he was playing for the Dallas Cowboys.

This room will go through the most change.
