Welcome to our new home!

My Show & Tell for this week is going to be more show than tell. My regular blog readers have been following the ongoing saga of the ups-and-downs of buying a house the past 3 weeks... and I am very happy to report that we are now officially homeowners! The slide show is a collection of pictures the way the house looks right now. Tomorrow it will be full of boxes! I'll take more pictures as we get settled and get things fixed up pretty!

I'm SO, SO, SOOOO happy you are getting such a nice house! You've worked hard for it! Take pictures as Daddy is painting and you are doing stuff. I can't wait to see progress even if it isn't picture worthy can sneek them to me!

It is lovely and how exciting a new home always is. I'll be eager to see the end result after you personalize it.

You have every right to be sitting on cloud 9 about now. The kitchen looks wonderful (even bare). We can't wait to see what you do with your new space.

Constance said...

How exciting! It looks like you won't run out of S&T stuff for a VERY long time!

CONGRATULATIONS, KARLA!!!! Woo-hoo! You're going to have so much fun!! I'm SO excited for you!! Love the downstairs, white bathroom sink! Reminds me of marble! And all that wood on the walls! I'll bet that's perfect for you, being sort of the country girl type!

I see you have the horrid, white sink in the kitchen. So do we. LOL! Now, don't take that the wrong way! I like the white sink, but it is TERRIBLE to keep clean! We built our house new, and the sink looked bad within a week, despite scrubbing. All the houses round here have those white sinks, and the women all grumble about them. LOL!

Happy moving tomorrow! Greg will be there between 9:30 and 10! :-)

I hope you are going to be very happy in your new home. We have moved house recently and although it is hard work it is worth the effort if you are happy with your new home.

Hi Karla,
I'm so happy for you!! Your new house looks very nice and roomy too! I can't wait to see pictures after you "make it yours" with your personal touch!


Carrie said...

Congrats on your new house! May you enjoy many happy years in this place, making memories with family and friends.

Joyce said...

Very sincere congratulations!
I'm glad it all worked out and you all were able to purchase the home you wanted. It will be so nice once you get it all fixed the way you want it.
Be blessed!
