A Sneak Preview of the House

I know you're anxious to see the inside...good thing I've got pictures!! These were taken while the previous owners were still living there so none of the furniture is mine but I told them they were welcome to leave it all. :)

Formal living room and dining room. I've never really been a fan of the duel formal and informal rooms but seems like every house we saw had them and at least these were open and warm vs. all the walled off rooms we'd see elsewhere.

So one of the main things I'd been looking for in a house was an open floor plan. Seems like every house we went to was nothing but a bunch of boxy rooms and I hated it...so this was a breath of fresh air when I saw it. It's hard to see but there's also a little breakfast area in the kitchen. And on the opposite side of the living room where I was standing, there's a fireplace and the stairs leading to the 2nd floor.

Master bathroom...LOVE this! There's a big garden tub to the right, seated next to a window (hope there's no neighborhood perverts), straight ahead is a double vanity and the toilet is in a little room with it's own door...lol. To the left is a humongous walk in closet.
This is the master bedroom and it's very dramatic b/c when you walk up the stairs...the first thing you see is are these two door thrown open to reveal this huge bedroom.
Now THIS is one of the main reasons I fell in love with the house. Off the master bedroom...there are two french doors that open up into this BEAUTIFUL office complete with fireplace. I have always wanted an office, a quiet place for me to write and think...and now I finally have it. The hubby got a spare bedroom. :)

The half bath downstairs. There are 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and the office. Just over 2,700 something square feet.

Congratulations! But OMG, a post about saving like $50 on groceries and then one on getting a f***ing mansion? Are you kidding me? This is the reason that America is going down the toilet, you know?

Arnold: I'd hardly call it a mansion. I'd just call it a nice house...one that we got for dirt cheap thanks to the current real estate market. And if saving money on groceries allows us to have a nice home to raise our family in...for me, it's a good trade.

Stephanie: Thanks!!!

Fair enough. It looks pretty fancy to me though! Not that there's anything wrong with that...
