House Hunters

That's what Josh and I are at the moment. We are hunting for a house that will work for the next few years...probably more like 10+. We love this area of Washington and we would be SUPER happy to live here for good...but I do only want a starter house.

We have to have 3+ bedrooms and 1.5+ bathrooms. I need a decent kitchen...nothing too small...

Well, I think we've found one. I know it's expensive, but we're putting our limit to $250,000 because it's expensive out here for something nice. I did find the PERFECT house, but it was over $1million! Crazy huh?

So the house we're going to go look at (ASAP) is a bit ugly, but it suits our needs and we can always redo as much as we want really. Right? I mean, we will be owning it! This is the link for it I don't know why I like it so much, but I really do. I"m excited to go look at it.

I also like this one, though it seems a little weird to have the second kitchen, though I know it might come in handy at some point (like for Thanksgiving if we ever would have it here again after Caralyn is born). I think I'm going to contact the agent on that one, even though Josh hasn't seen it yet.

One of the old Chiefs on Josh's boat is a real estate agent also...I think I'm going to email him today too. I want to see what he can find for us. Of course, he knows what the schedule is like on the boat, so it's not like he won't work with us.

Well...I'm out for now. Nothing new on the baby front. I do have an appointment tomorrow for an ultrasound to check the hole in her heart and to make sure she's growing appropriately (she's small, so they have to keep checking me every month). Talk to y'all later!


  1. IMO, the first one needs some work to be worth the asking price. It's pretty outdated, minus the kitchen. I'm not too good at these things but I do know that the wood paneling and god-awful carpeting would have to go, for me. It'd have to be $190k probably for me to consider it.

    I'm glad you guys are looking at getting your own place! I must admit, I'm a little jealous :). Congrats!

  2. Good luck on finding your perfect house :) I'm excited for you!

    Hope you are feeling great!
