we have a house

We finally agreed on an offer with the builder and we have a house in Mississippi! I'm not sure when we actually close, probably toward the end of May. But something to look forward to!

My favorite part is that it's pretty much all one level. Four bedrooms on the main floor and then one bedroom and bathroom upstairs and that's it. No basement, no more going up and down stairs carrying 2 kids 10 times a day!

Mitch's favorite part is that it's right next to the boat landing. There's a lake in the subdivision which is nice! There's also a pool, tennis courts and a golf course.
I'm not super excited about the way they did the cabinets (or the light fixtures above the island) but we're having them change some to make them more useable.
little butler's pantry between kitchen and dining room
Fireplace in the keeping room
Fireplace in the living room
Backyard - not huge but big enough for our playset!
The front isn't all that exciting, it's one of the downsides. But we figured if we want a "perfect" house we'd have to build again and neither of us really wanted to live in an apartment for a year or so.

I have more pics of this one that I can send to you. It's the one with the great coat cubbies that look like they'd be in a Pottery Barn catalog. :)
YAY! I'm so excited to come visit you in this house.
