A new house?

After all the chaos this year has brought, we have been anxious to start 2011 on the right foot. We decided to sell our current home and purchase a brand new house! We put an offer in on a house we fell in love with and the builder accepted it (after quite a bit of negotiating)! The only issue is...our current house has to sell! It's been on the market for 3 weeks with absolutely no showings! We're blaming the holidays and my real estate agent thinks we'll start getting buyers after the first. So, here's hoping we're in the new house before the end of January!

I want to show you the pic of the new house, but since it's not technically ours, I'll do the pencil sketch thing that some of my bloggy friends have been doing.

New house:

Keep your fingers crossed for me! It's such a beautiful house, not my "forever" house, but definitely one that I will be happy to live in for the next 5 or so years! What makes it even better, is the fact that my daughter loves it! She already has slumber parties planned! LOL!

Unlike most of blogland, I didn't want another fixer-upper. After breaking my leg, I'm not as mobile as I have been in the past. We've been remodling our current home for 3 years. A new house gives me the opportunity to relax for a while, only doing the projects I "want" to do, not projects I "have" to do. Now we just pray that our current house sells and we can move into the new one.

I hope everyone has a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Hugs!

Hi Annette,
It looks beautiful! I'll keep my fingers crossed and say a prayer that your current house sells and you get to move in soon! Please let me know if you decided to take a vacation in Myrtle Beach this year. I would LOVE to meet you.
Hugs,
