Home Sweet Home

Life has been a little EXTRA busy.   I know some get a ‘rush’ from putting this sign in their front yard, but I’m not really that type.  After many hours spent driving Dallas and its surrounding cities, lots of weighing our options, a ton of prayer, and falling in LOVE LOSING OUT on three great houses because of the whole ‘contingency’ issue  — we took the plunge and listed our house!  For Sale By Owner…

Home Sweet Home

Our rancher home was every bit of a ‘Home Sweet Home’ for our family.  Perfect!?!  No, but definitely cozy and comfortable…a total labor of love!  It’s been a whirlwind and just to give you the cliff note version for now, our house sold ridiculously fast thanks to the low supply — high demand of our neighborhood and of course a little credit to Stud for lots of fun home improvements.  After being on the market for three weeks and wondering if it would sell…the fourth week we had an offer AND fell in love with ‘Our House!’   <Insert Happy Dance>.

There’s so much more I want to share with you, but it’s really late and there will be more boxes for me to UNPACK tomorrow (not to mention three little sweeties ready to play)!

    Congrats Aimee & family on the new house!

    The Hubs accepted a job in Hawaii, so we will also be listing our house and making a big leap to the island of Oahu. And of course, we just finished the kitchen cabinets! LOL!

    Blessings, Juju

    Well think of the bonus not having to keep everything in order for months on end. Looking forward to seeing the new place and the It’s Overflowing stamp you put on it.
