Sorry for not posting in days. It has been CRAZY in the Groomes’ household! This past weekend we did a MAJOR house hunting trip. We literally saw 10 houses on Saturday and 6 more on Sunday. It. Was. Insanity. While I fully realize that finding the perfect house is going to be impossible, there seemed to be at least one or more significant issues with almost every house we saw. For example:
This house looks small from the outside, but actually had a ton of room inside. It also had adorable paint colors inside.
Cute yellow, right? However, Chase kind of can’t walk upstairs without banging his head….problem.
It did have a cute kitchen:
The one super downside (beside the whole, Chase can’t stand up in the upstairs) is that the neighborhood was less than ideal. Bummer.
This house looked AWESOME from the outside:
It looks darling, right?
Now look what it is like inside:
Holy Wooden Paneling! No thanks!
We also looked at this house and were totally excited about all of the space:
Well, this little gem has quite a scenic view:
That would be the back of a Game Stop, Starbuck’s. Chipotle, and a bunch of other stores on a VERY busy intersection…um, no thanks.
After looking at so many houses, by the end of the weekend we were back at the beginning, our top choice is….
It turns out that the kitchen that I thought was “soooo small” last weekend, is actually quite palatial in comparison to many of the other houses–go figure! We haven’t made any decisions yet, but as of right now, this is at the top of our list.
Do you like house hunting? How many houses would you or did you see before you decided on “the one?”
After this weekend, I feel exhausted! I just want to have the decision over with! I am kind of awful at making decisions. I am the girl that had to go on 24 college visits before choosing “the one.” Indecisive much? 🙂
