Well, we have finally found a house that meets most of the "have to haves" and most of the "want to haves". I know it's crazy, but it has 6 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, & a 3 car garage. What the heck were we thinking??? LOL Well, in our defense, the "guest suite" will be my office/scrap room. With working from home, I do need a designated area. (probably about 5% of the room...) The rest will be my scrap room. YAY! I have been on pinterest non stop to find perfect rooms. Now if only I had the budget for that! Eventually... We absolutely LOVE the layout of the kitchen and family room. The master is upstairs (not my favorite - I like it to be separate from the kids), but that was definitely not a deal breaker. It is huge though. I will have enough space for a settee by the front window to read. Very excited about that! Ray will take one of the bedrooms as a computer room. The kids will each have a bathroom in their rooms. That leaves 1 HUGE bedroom for guests. So, as crazy big as it sounds, we will use most of the rooms. The house is in Chuluota, but in a neighborhood. It's a pie shaped lot on a pond. We will have to clear a little of the palm fronds to have a better view, but other than that, it's exactly what we were looking for. The only thing it doesn't have is a pool. We have already started working with a pool company to design our dream backyard space. That will be exciting and expensive! ;) We have started boxing up all our stuff in preparations for the movers on the 30th. We really don't have too much to do. I boxed up all the videos and my scrap supplies yesterday. It's gonna be hard not to scrap for a week and a half! Can't wait to get in there and put up my decorations and paint the walls the colors I want. Sooooo sick of living in a rental! I can't believe I lasted 9 months!
