House Poor

The hubby’s new buzzword is house poor.  This is what he refers to our life as….which means…..WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!  Well, technically we're buying a house and close on May 6th, so pending nothing disastrous happens we will be the proud owners in around one week! It is a 1700 square foot three bedroom, two bathroom, 1945 stucco beauty!  It has oodles of charm, good structure, and tons of potential. 

What we love about it is that you can see that the previous owners loved it as much as we are going to and took great care of our new baby!  The house is equipped with a deck, garage big enough for the hubby to carry out my bidding work on projects for the house, and a walkout basement.  It is nestled on a ½ acre lot with tons of grass and trees.  It is near several lakes and parks and has the small town charm and feel of the lake town we grew up in.  An added bonus is it is close enough to the metro area so we can still access all the excitement of the city.  More pictures and details to come!

P.S. this means I get to change my banner to making our HOUSE a HOME! How exciting!


  1. Congratulations!! A big Congrats too on having your first child soon.

    Blessings on the move.


  2. Thank you Jodi! A real baby is a little ways away for us at this point, but the metaphorical baby of our house will be just fine for us now!


Let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you!
