UPDATE: We still do not have a house....(trying not to cry)
Last Friday we went to 8 houses. The second house we saw was this one
Cute house...bad front yard, I know...but cute house
The inside had been newly renovated and was super nice. The best part was 2 walk in closets in the master....which we need! This house also had a small "mud room" at the side door which Wesley could use as his office AAAAND a Laundry Room! I mean a room a real room just for the dirty clothes. (this is something we haven't seen much of, in case you can't tell) There was also a second living room at the back of the house, which Wesley already named his "man room".
Here is the beautiful updated kitchen
Soooooo why isnt this house ours? Well the asking price was a bit high for the area so we went into a bidding war for 6 days and just couldn't seem to meet eye to eye on a price.
Here is one HUGE reason we weren't willing to go any higher on our end....
This is the backyard...or lack thereof! We had some landscapers come out to give estimates of how much it would be to make this backyard...well...a backyard and it looks to be somewhere around $15,000. With that info we knew we didn't want to pay too much for the cute house with a bad backyard. So we are letting it go. SAD!
Just for fun I pulled what the house looked like in February before undergoing the renovations
and here is the kitchen
They got the house as a Foreclosure and paid NOTHING! They did put a lot of hard work into making this house what it is today, just not as much as they are asking.
So today is the day that Missoni came to Tar-get. I got there at 9:15 and the place was cleaned out...I mean GONE...EVERYTHING!!! I couldn't believe it; so I came home and checked the internet to see what I missed out on. And I have to say, I'm not that sad I didn't make the door busters.
Here are my top picks
I dont usually decorate in the color schemes they used for a lot of their products, so it made it easy to resist and keep my card in my wallet.
This plate would be cute for a UGA tailgate!
These outfits would be cute with tights
If my vote counts anywhere I would say Calypso St. Barth wins over Missoni...whats next?
During the planning of the Ice Cream Baby Shower I was so thankful to have found some Free Printables online.
I have never tried this before, but I wanted to share some printables from the party.
Click here for the pdf of Wishes for Baby. Like I mentioned yesterday, this was already a free printable online and came in a couple color options, just none with our color scheme.
I changed the color and now you can enjoy!
I just put 2 holes through the top and tied them together with ribbon at the end of the party.
The main theme for the shower was Babies Make Life Sweet, I made this sign and took it to Kinkos to have it blown up bigger for the welcome table.
You can print it here.
I am also a "labeler"; I think all food should be labeled on a table. I just like to know what I am eating and it makes for a cuter presentation.
