House #1

So, we made an offer on the house last night. I just found out today there were 10 offers and it had only been on the market for 2 days. So, yeah, thats probably a big fat NO, but we'll wait and see. It seems that all the good houses are going quick and sometimes over asking price, and all the crappy houses are staying on the market for a long time and lowering their prices. Duh. The problem is that now I will be comparing every other house to THAT house. The kitchen was so fantastic, and eventhough I am no chef, I totally appreciated all the upgrades...and the walk in pantry! Ethan was in love with the 2 car + tandem garage, and the backyard was great, plus that long driveway with the iron gate. I could picture Ryan riding his bike while I watched from the kitchen. The master even had an over sized tub, bigger than normal master bath tubs. Oh, and the closet was a great size. Cross your fingers for us.

The good thing is that we are now open to that neighborhood and hopefully we'll be able to find something similar. Its just so rare that Ethan and I would both find a "wow" house and that it would be the SAME house, because you all know how often we agree on stuff :)

In other news, I got to meet my brother's girlfriend for the first time tonight. My sister and I went to his softball game and sat with her. She seems really nice and I'm happy for him. He has been single for a while and its great to see him happy. He has been focusing on school/career for a while and hopefully his personal life will all click into place as well. He is almost done with the policy academy and is in the background investigation phase for a job with the sheriff department. I still keep thinking my little brother isn't old enough to be a grown up, but then again he is 24 which means I'm.....let's forget that for now.
