Friday 5: Big News!

It's Friday! It's Friday! Linking up with Christina & the Gang for:


 This week has been absolutely crazy! As you all know (well if you read my blog you know) we found what we believe to be our dream home, put in 2 offers, negotiated, got rejected on the last and then it turned into a multiple offer situation. We submitted our final and best offer on Monday and then waited through the most sleepless night ever until Tuesday afternoon when I got the call....... WE GOT THE HOUSE!!!!! I was floored and couldn't even speak! Ya'll this is our absolute dreamboat of a home. We are HGTV/Renovation fanatics and this home is screaming to be restored to its former glory! It was built in 1850, about 4,400 sq feet ready to be filled with love and future babes (hehe) and it is super close to honey's work. 5 acres right in town isn't bad either! Now we don't close until March 7th so I'm not sure I should even be posting this (heaven forbid anything happen) but my heart is filled with so much joy that I couldn't even hold back! OH- and I must tell you that my blog will now most likely be filled predominately with our ROAD TO RENO DREAM HOME JOURNEY BEFORE & AFTER! Also, we are keeping our current home for an income property so it isn't too too sad leaving it behind knowing it still belongs to us and the renters coming in are absolutely fabulous!

So with that said, I want to share 5 pictures of the beautiful 'project' that awaits us. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I pray everything goes smoothly over the next month!

Just needs some good lovin'

look at that door!



Honey and my Dad checking things out!
