Escrow!


Holy moly! If you all feel like I hit the fast forward button, imagine how I feel! I mentioned yesterday that we had put an offer on a house. Well we are in love! with this house and REALLY wanted it. So when the seller countered lower than our max we ACCEPTED! So we are now in escrow which means we have a ton of stuff to do. But instead of boring you with all the checks we have to write and inspections we have to have done, let's talk about our beautiful house!

So, imagine you are driving down a quiet neighborhood street. You pull up in front of an adorable green house with a porch and a palm tree. Dad says the palm tree could be a pain later but we love that there is a little piece of San Diego in front of our house. I also am obsessed with the porch. I have always wanted a porch. You walk in and there is what we will be using as our formal living room. The first thing that catches your eye is the beautiful wood floors. Then your eye is drawn in by the marble gas fireplace. As you continue your tour you walk through the formal dining room. You can walk out the slider to the back deck. Of course you can't miss the sparkling blue water of the pool. Yes, we bought a house with a pool when we are expecting. We'll put a fence up, don't worry. You can go back in to the house at the lower level. That is where we will have our family room. There is also a full bathroom so we can use that room for guests once another little one needs a room. The laundry is also inside in that room. There is a two car garage with a separate door for each car so it gives the cars a little elbow room. The garage has built in cabinets which are important to men I guess. Now lets go back inside and up a few stairs to the kitchen. The lovely granite counter top kitchen! There is also an eat in kitchen with a bay window. Next on the tour you go upstairs. On your right is the master bedroom. It also has its own porch. Huge walk in closet. Double sinks. A shower with a tub. Then there is the kid/guest upstairs bathroom and the two bedrooms upstairs.

I know, it sounds amazing right?! It is! We are so excited. Keep your fingers crossed that the inspectors don't find anything major!!!
