Some Pictures of the new house...

These are some of the pictures Brad took while inspecting the house. They don't really give a good scope of the size of the house...but you can see the "Lovely" decor inside. The house really has a lot of potential, but is in serious need of a decorative makeover. To describe the house, we borrow a quote from a movie we saw the other night ...Beauty Shop starring Queen Latifha(sp?) and Kevin Bacon. (It really was a silly movie but had some very funny lines.)Queen Latifha plays a beauty shop owner named Gina. She buys her own salon which isn't in the greatest shape. When she brings in her stylist to look the place over, one of them says,"It looks like someone swallowed the seventies and done threw it up in here." That would be our house (: !
The Front porch of our home...A whole lot of ugly (of course that's my opinion)... this will be the first project I tackle... this is the entry hall to our home. Is it a basement... or is it a bowling alley. Stuck in the seventies....
The front bathroom... check out the aqua blue toilet...

A small section of the kitchen...
I really like my new house and am so excited to have lots of room and most importantly 3 bathrooms. We like to pick fun at the decor of the place, but we will have so much fun making this home our own. We will try to get better pictures when we finally move in. Our official move in date is July 1, but we may get to move in sooner.

I think your new house looks WONDERFUL for your family! LOL on some of those special 70's touches, but those are all strictly cosmetic and most importantly - that big house will be an awesome place to raise your big family!

I know I'd leave that basement alone for awhile - tons of room for your gang to play play play and for you NOT to worry about any damage!! It really looks great.

Praying for the sale of your old home,

Jill
