Ahhh classic, right?
The second thing you will see is The Carlton
This is where the Mr and I have spent the past 4 years :-) We have absolutely loved living here. Seriously LOVED this home. However, if you follow LWTH on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook you probably already know this, the Mr and I purchased our first home! We have been looking for a home since March! People, we have been house hunting for 10 months!!! At first we were looking in Illinois (because that is where we thought we were moving) then we spent the summer looking for houses in Houston and working our way through bidding wars. In October we finally found our house, won the bidding war, and went under contract. At 12pm on 12/12/12 we closed; we are elated! We are sad to see our time at The Carlton come to an end, but ecstatic to move onto the next chapter in our lives.
I want to show you some pictures of our new house!!!
We have not moved yet, but we will right before Christmas.
What we are looking forward to:
-Spending our first Christmas in the new house, even if it is among piles of boxes
-Having a parking spot and not having to drive around the block a few times looking for a spot to parallel park everyday
-Just walking 5 feet from the car to the kitchen with groceries. No more carrying groceries up 3 flights of stairs in 150 degree weather every week for months (of course I'm too stubborn to take more than one trip from my car that is parked miles away).
-A yard for the dogs
-My new garden, lime trees, and apple trees
-Leaving our windows open and not getting bombarded with smoke
-Cooking our first meal in my new kitchen
What I will miss about our current home:
-Calling to the concierge if something breaks
-The location (though we are only moving 10 miles away)
Clearly there are more pros than cons! So we are about to move and can’t wait!
I am now taking any and all moving suggestions!!!
Have a great weekend friends!
