Packing... Packing... Packing...

We got and offer on our house in 2 weeks!  To be honest I am not surprised we had been praying about it (we also priced it right and it is an amazing home)!!  So we moving to a rental for a few months since the home we are buying is rented through August.  It is a little inconvenient BUT we will be able to save my income for 3 or 4 months which will really put us in a great financial situation to buy our new house!  So I am looking forward to it.  We are planning to live minimally- basic furniture, plastic plates and no cable~ it will be great!

After our rental extravaganza this is where we are moving~ I am so excited about this house, it is a little larger and has a wonderful yard, great schools, and is in my FAVORITE neighborhood to run in!
 Most of the living area is in the back of the house the living room, kitchen nook and kitchen are all one room~ which I plan to paint. There is a large screen porch off this large room.

The kids bedrooms are much larger than what they have now. There is a room over the garage that will be perfect for MeMaw and Poppie.  It is larger than what they have been staying in our current home.   In addition, Ben will have an office in this house and there is a formal living and dining room.  The house backs up to a conservation area and is on almost a 1/2 acre. There are lots of trees and mature landscaping, 2 ponds (one of which comes complete with goldfish), and several fruit trees.

We have been very blessed and are super excited for this next chapter in our lives.
