Could this be our new home?

Here it is... the house we are HOPING to buy if ours sells. It's not the cottage house of my new dreams, they really don't exist in this little town. BUT, we love the stone on the front and it has the perfect space for a front porch to be added... with some exterior paint over the white, some shingle and some craftsman columns! Oh... and the wood and glass front door.

We haven't heard anything from the realtor that called the night before last night. WAITING is so hard and we do it A LOT! I am still hopeful but we'll see. I am trying to remain calm as my mind is already adding moldings, taking down cabinet doors and placing furniture in the above house!

This is the feel I want the new house to have. This picture makes me HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!
I found it on one of my favorite blogs and literally sighed when I saw it... HOME. Couldn't you just be there forever and never leave? I've always been a "color on the walls" kinda girl but something inside is shifting to the CALM neutrals with pops of color... Don is struggling with the concept of cream walls... I am working on him.
I LOVE my blue dinning room with our black table and chairs so we have agreed to a blue dinning room again (with white craftsman moldings). I am thinking color in the powder room but CALMMMMM everywhere else... we'll see. We may just be calmin right here where we are in this market! So we are praying for a buyer to come soon and for the above house to wait for us! We'll see...

    If anyone knows the stress of trying to sell your house, that would be me! I will be praying that if it is God's will for you to move, that it will go quickly for you! Also praying for child #2 for you, whoever that might be. You've got so much going on! I'd be losing my mind! Praying for Abby's school situation. I totally understand your decision to put her back in school! I'll be praying for protection for her heart and the ability to learn. We need to chat and catch up! Just found on out Wed that we are having boy #3! Everything looked good, so for that I am thankful. I miss you!
