Hooray for a House!!!

I have been feeling like the Bachelorette lately and not in a good way!

After 4 days of house hunting, we had it narrowed down to 2 houses we liked. Nick and I went to bed last night weighing the pros and cons of both...we just couldn't decide between the two! But, just for grins, we decided to look at one more house this morning. Of course, we loved this house too! So we filled in our 3rd application and turned it in. Then had to play the waiting game...which realtor would call us back first? (Like the Bachelorette, which I admit I watch obsessively, we had 3 houses to choose from, we liked them all and couldn't decide which one we liked the best!) But, after talking about it all afternoon, we decided that the third house had everything the other 2 lacked and the cons really were non-existent! As fate would have it, even though it was the last house we saw, the last application we turned in, the realtor from the 3rd house called us back 1st!!!!!!

So, we have a house now!!!!!! Yeah yeah! (And it's a good thing because we move here in less than a week!) It is huge...3 bedrooms, 2 bonus rooms, a florida room (a screened in back porch where you can entertain without getting eaten up by mosquitos), 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining, living room, 2 car garage, a laundry room (seriously, in all of the houses we looked at here in Jacksonville, the washer & dryer were in the garage??? Apparently this is a Florida thing, and I do not like it!) and lastly a fenced in backyard with 3 lime trees!!!! The limes are big and beautiful! Cocktails here we come!!!

I will be posting pics next week when we get the keys!!! Stay tuned...
