Happy Monday! It is a new week and a super duper busy one actually! Thank goodness I finally woke up this morning feeling better. Last Wednesday I literally woke up feeling like I had been hit by a train. Like could not put one foot in front of the other exhausted and it did not let up one bit until today! Five straight days of wanting to sleep, sleep, sleep and I am NEVER like that! I did finally get some sinus symptoms which made me a little less worried but I was still concerned maybe my anemia had kicked back in like something crazy. Hopefully it was just a virus though and all will be back to normal this week! My girls each have a game they are twirling in tonight and tomorrow night. We are also celebrating Winnie’s 5th birthday with family tomorrow night after Addison’s game and then again at a jumpy place with her sweet little friends in two weeks. I thought I would spare our family from that fun. LOL. Wednesday I have several blog meetings and then Thursday Mark is getting started on the renovation of our new home! Eeeeekkkk! Is is Thursday yet???
As you may have read in my post “We Are Under Contract“, we have purchased a new home. A second home that we will be enjoying and also actually renting out sometimes as well. It is in the same community where we have owned several other homes over the last 11 years and a place that we absolutely LOVE. It is our happy place and somewhere we try and escape to every free chance we can get! Since selling our former cabin last February, we have been keeping our eye out for something fabulous to come onto the market. As in Mark and I stalk their real estate page weekly and e-mail each other options. We have looked at quite a few homes here and there while staying at my Dad’s cabin over the last year yet nothing screamed POTENTIAL. After owning several other homes, we had built up quite a mental list of what we wanted… a home that needed work but not TOO much work (no structural issues or total guts)… a home with great bones… a home with a view… a home not too far inside of the neighborhood (some can take up to 30min to get to once inside the gate!)… a home with a good driveway (a serious issue in a mountain community)… a home that had at least three bedrooms… a home that we would want to keep FOREVER. Definitely not picky as you can see ;-).
Almost two months ago now, we stepped inside our dream cabin. A home that is super easy to get to, a home that is convenient to all of the community ammenities, a home with a great driveway, a GORGEOUS view and so much potential I can hardly stand it! After several small headaches involving the appraisal, we finally closed on our new home two weeks ago. Since everything we want to do is mainly cosmetic, we were able to enjoy our first weekend there before work commences this week! So here is your first BEFORE tour of #ourwilderness wonderland…
XOXO, Brittany Hayes
