Sneak Peek...

Here are a few shots of our new home.

Part of the front of the house

the view out our front door

our neighborhood
 the mountain of trees is what we see out our front door

view from the living room into the family room

the dining room

the breakfast nook off the kitchen

 the kids play room
{with built in toy boxes!!}

There is a whole separate living area downstairs that includes a master suite with a huge walk in closet, bathroom, a family room, kitchen area, a movie theater room and a tornado shelter room. 
That alone is bigger than our little So Cal cottage. 
We're so excited about this area, it's the perfect spot for guests!

The backyard




We had a long list of things we wanted in our Southern home. 
5 bedrooms, a bonus room, laundry room, all of the bedrooms on the same floor, a 3 car garage, a big yard for the kids...This house has all of that and more.
 It feels like this home was built for us. 

I'm going to need to stock up on cleaning supplies, over 5,000 square feet to clean and 5 bathrooms to scrub. Is it too soon to make the kids start scrubbing toilets?? 

Chris' fantasy of having a riding lawn mower is about to come true. Pretty sure I will never see him with his big long list of things to do on the house and mowing the lawn.

We are having all of the wood floors re finished to a darker wood, new carpet put in upstairs and some painting done before we move in.
 We have 4 bathrooms to re model and a simi kitchen remodel ahead of us.

The best part? It's our forever house so we're going to take our time.

I hope our visitors don't mind sitting on the floor because ummm, furniture! 

Now y'all know why there is no sleep going on around here any more between the baby and laying awake at night designing the house and envisioning how to arrange all of the rooms.

I'll update more as things progress.

So thankful for this home.
