We're buying a house!!! (And a giveaway!!!)

Yep, that's the big news I referred to earlier. We finally found a house we like and can afford and fits our needs. Phew! I seriously can't wait to get back to Canby. Living in Silverton has been fun but it's time to go home now.
The family is seriously thrilled. Granny has clocked the distance between our two homes and we will be less than four miles away. She is so excited! :D

This is our new house. Well, it will be the end of this month. :)

Here's our shop. (Andrew loves this!)

The main bathroom.

The dining room and kitchen.

The ginormous (I kid you not!) master bedroom. Check out that door to the right. We'll come back to that door in a bit.

The master bath. The picture is a little wonky.

This is going to be Audrey's bedroom. I'm keeping the walls the way they are except I'm painting the brown dots and stripes green. It's a super cute room!Our back patio. (Nope, the Traeger doesn't come with it.)

The shed/dog house/dog run.

The back yard. Yep, there's a fire pit and a sitting area just outside those french doors which lead into the master.

Now, we're back to that door in the master suite. It's a ginormous walk in closet. It's almost the size of a bedroom and it has a window! This is going to be my craft room. There is a closet between the master bedroom and the master bath that houses the washer/dryer. Andrew is going to move those into the garage and that will be our closet.

We just don't have that many clothes and I do have that much craft stuff! LOL!

The house also comes with a goat. Yep, I'm getting a goat, finally!!! His name is Chuck but I think we're going to call him Cleatus. LOL!

Now for the giveaway!!! Since I'm so excited, I thought I'd share the love. Leave a comment here and you'll be entered in the drawing. Your comment can be anything you want. But please make sure that there's a way that I can get a hold of you. :D This contest will be open for entries until our loan funds. LOL!

Oh, you want to know the prize, do you? Well, it's a collection of five little stamp sets and some kraft journaling spots. (I'll post a pic of the goodies later!)

What a fantastic house and the master bedroom has me drooling on my keyboard. Wow! my jaw dropped when I saw the size of your closet...lucky you. You are going to have grand time decorating your new place and creating your scraproom. You must show pics of "your" room when your done. Good luck with your move.
