House Hunting



I know it may be a little too soon, especially since we don’t have an actual buyer yet, but…

It helps to look and see what is out there.

Hubby and I, between finishing projects around here (which we have actually finished quite a few), went driving around looking at properties For Sale.

We have found 2 we are interested in.

We looked, drove and discussed things.

Day dreaming, I guess you could call it.

Saying things like, we could do this or that, we could add this or that, I like this about it, or don't like that about it, etc.

It is a fun way to pass the time, plus for me I like concentrating on the future instead of dwelling on what I will be leaving behind.

Any way, back to the 2 properties…

One is out in the country.

Love that idea.  It sits on an acre and half, love that too!

Plus has a pool! A plus for me, not so much for Hubby. :)

Smaller than the house we own, Yes, both houses are much smaller, but oh well, we don't need all the space anyway.

The second one is more in town, but on the outskirts.

It sits on almost an acre.

It is an older home but it has been completely remolded inside.

Love the yard but most of all love the kitchen.

Shhh! Here are some photos I borrowed of it ;)




Isn’t is so pretty!

And yes, I can just see it decorated up in my Prim Farmhouse style!! :)

We are going to try to set up times to look at both properties.

But with our work schedule and the things we need to get accomplished before next weekend, I’m not exactly sure when that will be.

I’ll keep ya posted.

Tomorrow is paint the basement day!!

Yes, that same space that has been half done for approx. 3 years now. Heehee!!

Sad but true!

Tomorrow it is on our must do this!

Hopefully work will leave me alone so I can actually get it finished.

I am dreading it though.

I have have painted, and painted, and painted lately!

I swear when all of this is finally finished, I may never paint again! :)

Heading off to bed, I must rest this very sore body before I have to get up and start all over again.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take Care and Talk Soon…

Hey Tammy, you are doing a good thing in moving forward. The houses sound great that you looked at. Love the big kitchen in that one you showed pictures of, would look better all primed up. Good Luck Francine.

Very pretty fresh big kitchen.

Morning Tammy,
I must say I like your attitude going into this new venture.
Sounds very exciting but at the same time all that work getting your house ready...we would have to do some updating to ours if it went on the's okay for us to live in but someone else would expect some changes on some things. Guess that's part of selling.
I wish you luck - the kitchen in the house looks awesome...nice and large and I love 'eat in kitchens'.

Wishing you luck in your house hunting - the pics of that kitchen are wonderful! Love it too!
Have a lovely week Tam!

Tam, I have done the same thing. I can't buy until I sell, but found this wonderful old home on a hill overlooking the town of Clinton, that I fell in love with. I am praying for you. god has a plan for both of us. If mine don't sell I can live here the rest of my life, happily. If you read my blog, you know I am in the 4th

Tammy, I know that this has been a difficult decision but all things will fall into place. We've many times due to hubby's career and our joke is that I can go from looking at a house to moved in and furnished in 5 minutes flat! That positive attitude will be what carries you thru this time.

Felicia said...

good luck with your house hunting Tammy. You'll find the perfect one.


Holly said...

Cindi said...

I get tired every time I come and read here! It is good to get out and look forward to the new things that are going to come into your life! Praying everything works out for the best, I love that kitchen too!

Hi Tammy, having just recently sold our home and now looking for a new one, I can relate to everything you are going through. Good luck with the sale of your home and hoping that you find the perfect new place to call "home"!! Love these pics by-the-way...looks like a very nice kitchen! Enjoy your day, Tina
