Full Steam Ahead!

On Saturday we met with our realtor, it went really well. He feels we will be able to sell the house quickly and get what we want for it. We are very excited but pretty nervous. We need this to all play out smoothly to keep moving forward. Unfortunately we will probably have to move twice. It will be hard to stay in our house while the new house is being built. With the school year approaching people will want to get into the house ASAP so they can be in the school district. There are options of closing on our house then renting it from the new owners while our house is under construction. Again, this is all a wait and see game. I am trying not to get too anxious, it will all work out.

The house went up on the market today, I am curious how quickly people will want to come to the house. I hope it won't be too much of an inconvenience trying to accommodate people coming in and out. Eliza, Zander(the dog) and I will pack up each time and go to the park or something. My sister and I had planned on doing a garage sale this week but that has to be put off. I don't think people would want to come look at the house while we are sitting in the garage selling our junk.

I will say, no matter what happens with the house, I am very happy with how clean it is! Maybe with all of the people coming in and out we will keep it spick and span. The best part of cleaning, Eliza LOVES to help. I was washing the walls and she came over and grabbed a rag and started to help. Her favorite thing is laundry, I hand her things and tell her where they go. When she puts them away she says YAY and starts clapping, it is precious.

I have started updating Pinterest again, now that I have a house to plan for. Check it out.

Also, have you heard of Houzz?? it is kind of like Pinterest but it is all house stuff. You can search by room or material, I love it. I am currently searching for exterior colors. The exterior of the house will be siding, brick and stone. Trying to find the right color combination is KILLING us.
Here is one we love: http://www.houzz.com/photos/97944/exteriors-traditional-exterior-minneapolis (sorry no photo, I can't figure out how to pull it, they are very protective of their photos).

We leave for swim class today, hopefully no one tries to come while we are gone!

Wish us luck!
