I posted my top ten house wish list a few weeks ago and just wanted to give a quick update. We found our dream house!

We were house hunting and stopped for a bite to eat while we waited 45 minutes to see the last house on our schedule. We met a guy in the coffee shop also eating his lunch and as my husband was chatting with him he invited us to go look at his house. His wife and he had discussed relocating just the other night.

We saw it, loved it, and bought it, without it even being on the market.
God is good! Giving us those 45 minutes to kill so we would be in the right place at the right time.

Top Ten Tuesday: House Wishlist

We sold our house!! Hurray! The sold sign went up today and now we pack and prep to leave Sunday for our house hunting trip. We're moving 3000 miles across the country back to our family. I'm so thrilled that this next step in our journey is finally here and so anxious at the same time.
We've been aware of this move since October so virtual house hunting began then but I thought I should perfect our wishlist.

Top ten things I would love in our new house

1. Bedrooms on a second storey.
Our current home is one-level, it is great and our daughter is a fantastic sleeper but it would be nice to have the bedrooms away from the living area.

2. A yard.
I will not specify size as we currently have a very dinky backyard so anything larger would be wonderful.

3. A mudroom.
I would love to have space for jacket and boots besides our one main closet or the garage.

4. Three or Four bedrooms.
Three is a must four would be nice so that we could always have a spare room.

5. A garage.
In the area we'll be living most are older homes so garages are not common but it would be nice.

6. A rec room area.
I would love to have a basement or loft area that could be a tv/toy room away from the living room.

7. Space for crafting.
The rec room area or fourth bedroom would cover this. I would like just enough to have a desk for my sewing machine and scrap-booking supplies organized and accessible.

8. A window over the kitchen sink.
Standing at our current sink I look at the wall straight ahead or into the living room to my left, I have always found staring out a window makes doing dishes more enjoyable.

9. A deep tub.
I love a good bath and though I did turn our overflow drain around so I can fill the tub a little fuller there are still bits of me that are never fully submerged in the bath.

10. Little or no carpet.
Our two dogs produce a lot of fur and it is so much easier to keep hard flooring clean.

Stay tuned for an update as to how many wishlist items we are able to find in our new home.
