Our New Residence in Georgia (as of Aug. 1st.)



Thanks to Monika Peterson, we found this AWESOME home at the last minuet! REALLY last minuet! We were supposed to go sign papers yesterday on the brick house below (2 postings down, the white one was taken) and then we went and looked at this house yesterday morning that Monika had found on Craigs list the day before. It is INCREDIBLE! The pictures don't do justice. And there are only 4. These are the pictures that were on the listing. When I take some good ones, I will post them... The basement is awesome! It has a "Media Room/Theatre" with surround sound allready in. A huge pantry w/ a bedroom and full bath plus a big open room for a play room or whatever. The back yard is the biggest I have seen and it is a FLAT useable yard!!! It looks to be almost a 1/2 an acre! All of our neighbors have swing sets which is a good sign of kids. It is 6 bedrooms 4 full bathrooms and is beautiful! (Plenty of room for visitors) The kids will have a "Jack and Jill" bathroom off their rooms upstairs. The master is awesome with his and her walk in closets! I love all the cabinets in the kitchen and it has Corian counter tops. I was hoping for Granite but Corian is a good material too! The only down fall is, it is slightly farther away than the other house from tims work. It is 12 min away insted of 8. :o) In rush hour traffic, it may be more like 1/2 hour. Unless Tim moves to the other office in which case this house will be more like 20 min away or 40 in rush hour. Oh well!!! Tim said it would be worth it for this house. I agree! It is on the border of Alpharetta and Cumming. Our address will be Cumming in Forsyth County. E-mail me for the address. I'm nervous about posting it on the blog for the world to see. We move in the 1st of August, just in time for school to start. YAY! Im so excited to finally have a home and one that I am happy with! Thank You Monika Peterson! You should check out her blog to see their awesome house!.....

Tim will be down at the end of the month to supervise the movers as they move our stuff out of storage in Queen Creek and into the "big truck" to ship here to Georgia!!!
