um, so yeah...

i've been a little stingy on the blog here lately. call it whatever you like, but i haven't shared all of our family news. where do you draw the line on your site? how much is too much? how much is too little? seeing as i have roof shingle colors, tree pruning books, and support beam prices on my brain, i thought i should finally let the world in on one of our life decisions lately...


we bought a house. 


ever since ty and i started inventing a life together, when we talked about our "dream" home we both wanted a few things:

1) old 2) fixer upper 3) lots of land.

well, we are very humbled and grateful to say that we bought a home that is:

1) old  2) fixer upper and 3) lots of land.

can't you just see my goats and chickens running around already?
i think i might start another blog just to follow us during all of our projects.

and yes, for all you valley ladies, it's in o-town : )

where is this haven of peace ( and WORK....LOL)??????

I can see it now Annie, maybe its easy to picture when you have your own goats and chickens running around (pooping on everything) :) It will be so fun. I am so excited that we are going to live in the same valley again. We will have lots of DIY ideas, trail, child rearing, weight loss, and the good ol' day memories to share.

SA-WEET! Is it in the valley?!

Austrie said...

Congrats! That's awesome, especially since you found just what you were looking for. I have the exact opposite hopes for a home someday. I want something new that needs nothing to be fixed (neither of us are handy at all) and while it would be nice to have a lot of land, I'd be very happy with a nice-sized back yard with enough space to have a play ground and a garden, and then I'm good.

Incredible! I love all that land.

Carrie said...

Wow that is HUGE!! I know how stressful the home-buying process is, so congrats on getting through it alive!! You are so gonna love having your own place and the girls will be so happy there!

Congrats! That is awesome. I can see the many animals running around for sure.
I love the fixer-uppers. It is so fun to create your own haven. Keep us posted with the before and after pics and all the renovating along the way. Good luck!

When are you guys moving? We need some details....:)

That is wonderful, I bet your parents are glad to have their kids and grandchildren back in the valley. You will have so much fun fixing it up. Maybe I'll see you there for the fair.
