Ahem- Drum Roll Please!

Hello all! I realize I haven't posted anything exciting in quite some time and it's because....

WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! That manifesting thing worked out to my advantage. I was just planning on renting a house originally!!! Then I thought about it and I thought about it....I wanted to own a house. Then I can do to it what I please dammit!
Here are a few photos of the front of my new house:

I will eventually paint the outside a nice sagey green and probably get a natural wood looking door with some stained glass...

We're also going to be doing some hardcore landscaping in the front and back yard this summer. I will post photos as I go : )

Here's the rustic fireplace and hardwoods with built in sconces and awesome windows (the whole house is just full of light!). You can see a slight glimpse of our decent sized porch out of the right window. Unfortunately I think we will need to rebuild the porch sometime...It's sturdy enough for now, but it doesn't have a ton of life left in it.

This is the window right as you walk in the front door. There's a pretty cool old school looking chandelier there and awesome built ins. Time to get some fancy show off wine glasses : )

I don't have any photos I can post of the kitchen the bedrooms or the back yard unfortunately. I forgot my digital when I went and saw it again (we don't move in until March), so I bought a throw away camera and my scanner is packed already.

The back yard is going to be a huge amount of work, but it'll be so much fun. It needs a fence and landscaping badly. There's a veggie garden built in, but I don't like the layout so I'm going to rip it out. There's also a clothes line *cemented* into the ground. That'll be a fun one to remove. I get the feeling we'll be replanting new grass at some point...

The two downstairs bedrooms are modest in size, probably 10x10. The upstairs bedroom has vaulted ceilings and is probably 10x20. Giant windows in all the bedrooms!

The kitchen is probably as old as the rest of the house...eep! Because it's so expensive to put in new cabinetry, for now we are going to paint the cabinets dark green and put on knobs shaped like leaves. That'll be good. There is a big window above the kitchen sink with shelving built off to the sides that will be perfect for plants. I'm excited!

Stay posted for pics of our progress. It'll probably be at least a good month before I can post anything good, but I'll be back!!!

Also- it's my baby's 1st birthday soon! Just an early warning. there will be photos by May ;)

Love ya'll!

Way to go, Dani!!! I'm so proud!!! I can't wait to see it in person.

I get to move in in two weeks. I am so very excited. Hurray! I've budgeted for paint and bitchin knobs. My frugal weeks are going to be less frugal there for a bit. I'm planning on spending $300 on paint and $150 on knobs. That's just to start though. I have a giant list of things we need. Lucky for us, Jake's nana just offered to give us her fancy fancy dining room table! One less thing to buy. Yay!

Nice! I love a fancy dining table. We found a marvelous knob website you may want to check out.

They were the cheapest we found for what we were looking for and the quality is good, shipping was fast. I'm definitely bookmarking them. :-)

Good!!! I can't wait to order knobs- hahaha! I'm not sure what design I want in the bathroom. I completely overestimated how much it would cost though. The pulls are much more expensive than the knobs...but we don't need as many. Hmm.

I manifest better than I thought- the last home owners painted the house sagey green! I didn't even ask them to!

Look at your awesome manifesting! Go Dani!
