Prospective New House

Keith and I have been thinking about and looking into buying a house since before he left for deployment. We have been looking and can't even count how many houses that we have looked at. We put in a bid on one about a month ago (The day before my surgery actually) and was out bid by some one else. That in it self may have been a blessing in disguise because Keith found a really nice older home on about and acre last friday. We put in a bid this morning and have been told that we should know by next week if our offer has been accepted.

If it gets accepted there will be a bit of saving coming our way just so that we can be prepared in case the navy does seperate me for my arm. I have told Keith that I will do what ever it takes to help make ends meet even if it means getting 2 part time jobs here in town, and or even doing the ebay/ etsy thing if need be. Every little bit will help even if it doesn't seem like it. That extra $20, $30 or $50 can be put towards utility bills, storage, car payments you name it.

So I think I will be alot better with my stash reports here in the future using ALOT more than I will be purchasing. I have alot of Kits and fabric set aside for specific projects in the hopes to limit the things that I inpulse buy.

So are you ready to see some sneak peeks of the house?
This is the front of the house. The grass looks lot greener in real life and there is a big gravel drive through or round about not sure what you would call it.

Here is a picture of the fire place. Looks like it will keep us toasty warm in the winter.

Here is the view into the Kitchen not a whole lot of counter space but we will manage (if our bid goes through)

And part of the back yard. There is a small pool and spa its almost like a little resort area with a patio area and then a sun type area. Over all really nice. We'll see.
