The Home of Daddy's Day Dare! ~ I am just trying to stay above water

We’re In!

After much nail biting and gnashing of teeth our home- for-sale’s price has been validated.


To the best of my knowledge our home has then been cleared to sell and we are on our way to…..

Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home

The girls couldn’t be Happier!

Skylar got to run around in her new room already

  1. Whao congratulations! I’ve barely had time to keep up but looks like a lot has been going on!
    Happy Birthday to the girls! 🙂

  2. Thanks Cassie, You are looking at the rough draft of that house. Plans for taking out a tree and some shrubs for more room on the porch and the inevitable ‘stormdoor’ that you also need in the sath… for those evening breezes. Take the sign! I think I stole it off of a Pintrest.

  3. Gorgeous curb appeal with the new casa – LOVE it, esp. the wonderful front porch. Gotta have a front porch in the sath. Congratulations to you and your fam on this huge milestone. P.S. I need that sign!

  4. Yea, I loved that picture of her too. The pic itself had little detail to it but I had to show that fun smile off. She has thee best looking smile! Thanks for dropping by….

    Beautiful picture of Skylar. Congrats!

  6. AAAAAH congratulations!! how exciting!! (now we can have month-end moving woes together!) : )

    • I hear ya. We can text each other as we get set back after set back so we can just laugh about it. Good luck with your move Jenn! Did you find a place?

    • haha yep that sounds about right! : )

      i looked at 2 places yesterday, am really leaning towards one, and am just waiting to hear back to see whether i was approved or not. so i’ll be keeping my fingers crossed and staring at my phone all day tomorrow!

    • ohhhh, a watched phone never rings! Good luck!

    Yay!!!! Congratulations! Knew you would get through all of the obstacles and hurtles and now the girls can go to the school you wanted… and the plans for the pool???? I may plan a vacation. (lol) Soo happy for you and your family. The girls will love it and it looks bea-u-ti-ful!

    • The pool may have to wait until next year…enough time for you to get that job and a paid vacation. This summer will just be a big privacy fence and another greyhound; for the girls 😉 Yes this neighborhood is packed with kids. Our house will be trashed! But never dull. Thanks for dropping by Kelly…We still could use a good strong back for the moving? We have cheesecake!

    • One Fit Mama on said:

      Lmao! Throw in wine and a flight and I’m there! It would be a good workout!

    • Can I will compromise with you? will get any wine you want. Or, with a 3 & 5 yr old, plenty of whine too! 🙂 I will even throw in a guest pass to my gym.

  8. Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. ..in their new room(s). The house has two Master BR’s. Our goal was to find a good first floor BR for my parents visits . This had the two MBR’s so we didn’t have to sacrifice, although this old dad is going to have to climb some stairs in order to ‘do something exciting’ with mom in their new room. Or if you and yours want to bring Thing I & II down to some place warm we now have some room. And then we could sell some books! ~ Thanks for dropping by Leanne!

  10. I’m not even going to ask what mom and dad did in their new room.

    Gorgeous house!

I would love to hear from you...
