Home, Almost Sweet, Home

After submitting our first offer last July, 10 months later, this

is finally ours!

And after all the problems we’ve had, I’m wondering if it was all worth it. As I type this, Mario is at the house with a plumber draining our pipes, and what little is left in our bank account.

Let me give you a tour. The “before” tour, since no, I don’t plan to live in such filth.

The living room with horrible paneling, I plan to paint that a green color, at some point.

The kitchen, which still looks just as messy, my bad.

The hall bath with beautiful blue tile, I dig it.

Master bedroom which currently has no carpet since at one point it was under water.

Master shower, bring your friends, we’ll have a party.

And last, the one thing that will save me from Fresno’s blazing summer months.

I don’t want to say where it is on the blog, but for those of you who remember where Uncle Paul lives, we’re just one street south of him, in the same neighborhood. So if you’re in the ‘hood, stop by & say hi :)

WHAT? 10 MONTHS?? What the heck!

In any case, CONGRATULATIONS! First a baby, then a house....y'all will never have any extra money again ;)

Oh, and go ahead and paint the paneling, but those kitchen curtains gotta stay. No need to mess with perfection.

I said to myself this looks like Uncle Paul's house...and what do you know...I was right!

So fun! I am so happy for you guys!

I was thinking the exact same thing - "This looks like the same floor plan as Paul & Joyce!"

I LOVE that aqua bathroom tile, too. And I love green for the living room. Our house in Prather had paneling too & we painted it green. I love how it made the red brick fireplace pop. Bob wanted to paint the fireplace but I won.

Can't wait to see the after photos!

I had no idea you were going to be right by my parents house. But when I saw the pictures I thought this sure looks very familiar. (Even the blue tile in the bathroom!) Enjoy being home owners! And good luck getting everything perfect before the baby arrives.

So exciting! I love the paneling. It reminds me of my parents basement. Congratulations!
