Home Sweet [New] Home

Guess where we went today?!?!! No ideas? I'll give you a hint:


That's right - our NEW HOME!!!!

We went at 9 this morning and ended up leaving here at like 0830 because we had to walk. =( If only you knew how far away housing was from our hotel. It took us about 20 mins to get there. Not cool. But, our housing guy wouldn't answer his phone and I didn't have their main number, so we walked.

We didn't have much time to view the house because Joe had a meeting at 1000 that we were informed of at the last minute, as usual. But, I have to say that I am in love. It's cute and cozy. Not huge, but we don't need anything really big so that's fine. We're going to be sandwiched in between to other duplex-like houses which could be interesting. It's not an apartment, so I am totally thankful for that. And for the first time since we've been married, we'll have a fenced in backyard!! Praise the Lord!! Jasper won't know what to do with himself when he gets here! =)

Alright, enough talkin'. I'll show you some pics of this fabulous house!

This is the mudroom. *swoon* The picture is taken from the kitchen, but as you can see, there's also an entry from the carport. {Note: our car has NEVER been in a garage/carport before. Woohoo!}

Kitchen. *happy sigh* Look at all that cabinet space! There's more to the right [along with the fridge] that you can't see. By this point, I was sold. =)

Living room. So. Stinkin'. Huge. I'm gonna have plenty of room in this place! =D

Bathroom. There's only one [in between the 2 bedrooms], but that's ok. Not a big deal.

Master Bedroom. Not that big, but it's about the same size as the one in GA. We can deal. The closet space is ridiculous though! I don't know how they expect 2 people to share that tiny excuse for a closet.

Guest bedroom. Isn't it cute?! Love it. 

Between the 2 bedrooms is a coat closet, a storage closet (which is gihugic!), and the bathroom. This place has more storage than I've ever seen! Which, I suppose makes up for those tiny closets in the bedrooms! I foresee his and hers closets in our very near future. =) We won't be able to move in for a week, though. =( I was hoping to be in there really soon, but I guess - as with everything in the military - it's the paperwork that's holding us up. 

And for an update on the "bright idea" my hubby had yesterday, we are going to fly his brother out here but not his fiance. I'm sad because I'd love to have her here too, but we can't afford it and neither can they. Such is life. At least he'll get to see his brother. Just so you don't think we're incredibly crazy, Joe hasn't seen his brother but for 2 days in a year. So, I get why he wants to see his brother. 

That's about all that's going on over here! I'll leave you with one more picture of our new neighborhood. =) Can't wait to actually live there!


Happy Thursday!!

Are you wanting to break rank? Are you exhausted with military spouse support groups that have forgotten how to actually support the unique needs of a woman or a man who is married to the military.
