Our Weekend and My Dream House

We stayed close to home this weekend and enjoyed the beautiful weather outside. We ran some errands on Saturday afternoon but primarily our routine seemed to be fixed around one constant lately - the T.V. on with a basketball game playing. I think I have watched more basketball the past few weeks than I have over the course of my life.

Sunday we took the kids to eat outside at Sonic after church -not something we will be repeating anytime soon since none of them ate their food! We then went and looked at a spec house in a nearby neighborhood. The floorplan was nice and it could even be built with 6 bedrooms which was a big deal to us.

Our house is four bedrooms and has been a great house to us the past 7 years. However, as we approach July and the addition of another family member, we are starting to feel a little squeezed for room. We purchased two matching twin beds for Emma's room thinking we would try rooming Emma and Avery for a little while. We have been trying to get the girls adjusted to sleeping in a room together for the past three nights but it is not going very well. They run around together upstairs, pulling toys out everywhere and make as much noise as possible. Eventually, we cave and place Avery back in her crib.

So we have been casually looking at homes for sale in our area and contemplating what we need to do to our house to make it market ready.

This beautiful house pictured above is my dream home. It has over 4,000 square feet of space, a large gourmet kitchen, a garage big enough for 6 cars, 6 bedrooms and it is located in a lake access community with a dock and boat ramp just feet away. Ahhhh - if only we could afford it! It amazes me (because this house is soooo gorgeous) that it is still on the market and has been for months now. It is an expensive house but its price is comparable to other like homes located in lake communities.

Anyway, we'll see what the future holds. Meanwhile, I can drive by my dream home and pretend!
