The home stretch

I sure hope this isn't bad luck! So, Andy and I are under contract for this house. It is beautiful and we are so excited to finish the purchasing process and move in. I have been dreaming about planting flowers and getting all domestic.



We are probably most excited about this porch. Is it not beautiful? Truth be told, it is probably larger than any room inside the house. We look forward to many summer evenings here.



Ok. The kitchen is just adorable. The vintage stove/oven is in working condition. The cabinets are metal, and the floor is black and white tile. I am ready to don my pearls and apron and do my best Donna Reed/Betty Draper impression. I must apologize for not including more pictures of the interior. The person who lives there currently still has all of his furniture in the other pictures and I thought it would be disrespectful to parade his belongings for all to see. Interior pictures to come!



The backyard is our second favorite thing about this house. There is room for bbq parties and dogs! It has a vegetable garden, which Andy has nobly offered to take on, mature trees, and tall fences!



We just love this house. We are scheduled to close June 23rd. Fingers crossed that all goes well!

It looks like an awesome house Candace. Houses with character are cool and this house certinly has character.

It's hard to look at the pictures with that Evil Burt grinning at you over there. He really has to go!

Some time ago I found out that I could extract any unwanted tune from my head by conjuring a few bars of "Low Rider". Everyone should have a an "Asia" or "Low Rider" type of tne on stand-by for just those times when an obnoxious jingle enters and just won't leave on it's own.

BTW - Have you seen Andy?
