Happy Dancing!!!!

I feel like Snoopy right now!!!  The seller's accepted our offer!!!! :-)

Now we move onto the next step of finalizing the paper work.  But we hope to be able to start moving by the middle of July at the latest.

Our plan is for our sons (13 &9) and I to take several trips back and forth from NY to OH over the summer, taking small loads and doing things like painting while Donnie is working.  Then we will make a couple large trips with all of us to move furniture and things like that.  The end goal is to be completely moved before the 2014-2015 school year starts.

 This is most of our backyard, there is a little stream there in the back too!  I am planning to put several raised garden beds back here to start growing a lot of our fruits and vegetables!

I'm even thinking about possibly putting in a small water feature too! :-)

The front porch!  I cannot wait to find the perfect little bistro patio set.  I think this will be the perfect place to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the morning!

This is the view out into the side-back yard from the 3-season room at the back of the house.

There is a nice large 2 level deck, a big driveway, plus the big garage!

To say I am excited is an understatement!!!  I can't wait to make this great little place ours! <3 br="">

Our New House... hopefully!

Sorry I didn't post this the other day like I planned, the weekend was a bit crazy, and heck so was this morning.    Lots of running around going on, phone calls being made and plans being formed!

My husband's time as a recruiter is coming to an end later this year.  His next assignment will take him out of the country for a year or so.  We have decided that now is the time for us to look into truly settling down.  Once he returns from this next assignment he will only have a few short years left until he is able to retire.

We both are originally from Ohio and my family is still there.  We settled on a town mid-way between my mom and my dad.  We found the most perfect little house while we were there over the Memorial Day weekend!

It's a cute little 2 story house built in the 40s, that sits on just under half an acre.  It's on Main St... how cool is that! :-)

It is in wonderful shape, and aside from a few cosmetic things I'd like to change (IE the pumpkin orange dining room! LOL) it's perfect!

The porch is big enough for me to put a small seating area there.  Perfect for enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in the mornings!

There is a fabulous 2 level deck on the bag porch that will be great for entertaining as the back yard is big enough to put in several good sized raised beds for fruits, veggies and flowers!  There is even a small stream at the back of the property!  We are ALL super excited about having running water right nearby!  The current front flower beds are very nice, but I cannot wait to be able to fill them with all the pretty flowers I like too.

There is also a large 2 car garage that has a built in workshop with a wood burning stove, plus enough space in the drive to park several cars.  We are thinking about converting the garage into an entertainment 'room' for when we host parties and get togethers! 

Hopefully we will know more this week! *fingers crossed*
