That 70's House

We were able to walk through the house tonight with our Realtor. What can I say? We love it even more now... so we're definitely what you would call "motivated sellers". The things about the house that were questionable aren't as bad as we thought, and the things that we liked about it, are even better. We still have to sell ours first, of course, but going into the house tonight answered any questions about whether or not it would be a good investment (and we have learned many things about fixing up a house... the hard way).

I didn't take any photos because I had the camera in the diaper bag and didn't feel like getting it out, plus Lucy was really squirmy and tired, and I also felt weird about photographing the house when it isn't ours. It's a bank-owned home, so no one lives there, but I still thought it would be unnecessary. Besides, we saw what we needed to see, and having pictures to stare at would only add to the obsession. Okay, so this is definitely THE house. I hope all the renovating that would be necessary scares off other potential buyers. I don't know what is in store for us, and maybe this house isn't where we're meant to be. I still have faith that we'll find the right place. However, it's all too easy to get caught up in your own desires, and I can't deny the fact that we both love this house. All we can do is wait for an offer on ours!

Mindy! What church do you guys go to over here? Ryan and I are going to start checking some out and I'd love to bump into you somewhere!

we go to spring valley community church in allendale (near GVSU). on lake michigan drive.

they have not yet built the CHURCH itself - so it's at allendale middle school, and sometimes in a nearby park! but it's a great place, lots of young people, very casual, non-judgemental, optimistic approach. we have a hard time going on a regular basis with our crazy baby, but we've been talking about getting back into it. it becomes a habit either way... let me know if you want to check it out and maybe we can meet up!
