Our New Home

After 2 stressful weeks of looking for a home and 2 offers that fell through, we found a home and agreed on a price the day I flew home to Pittsburgh. Everything was down to the wire, but it all worked out and I think we got a house that will function very nicely for us. We were a little heart broken over the 2nd house that we lost, but this one I think might have a little more that will meet our needs. Matt is very excited about the 3 car garage, and I am excited about the openness of the home and the big backyard.

The kitchen: Matt was set on there being an eat at counter in the kitchen where he can eat his bowl of cereal. And I really liked the family computer desk since we like the computer to be viewed only in open (non-private) areas.

The kitchen flows right into the hearth room so the chef (me) can be apart of all the fun.


This is the entry way. There is a formal dining room just to your left.
The Master Bedroom.
Master Bath - quite the upgrade from our black and pink tile with a teeny-tiny sink.


Finished basement with a full bathroom and a possibility of a 5th bedroom if we so desire. The backyard in the "sea of suburbia" as our friends like to put it. This is a whole different life than Pittsburgh. Overall, this should be a good home for us that we can grow in. The neighborhood is loaded with kids and has an Olympic sized pool and splash park in it. And the house is only 3 minutes by car from Matt's parents. It doesn't really feel like this is all happening. We have been looking forward to this point for SO LONG that it is hard for me to actually let myself feel like this is really happening. Here's to settling down and planting some roots. (After so many years of moving around that almost scares me.)
