Exciting shtuffff

SO... we think we got our first home. Ahhh so many emotions all at once. If the inspection goes smoothly and we still decide to proceed, than we can be in as early as December 19th. Just in time to install wood floors and paint the entire inside right around Christmas time which should be interesting! We are so beyond excited for our "little brown turd". Everyone that sees the house thinks we are crazy because it is definitely a "fixer" but it was love at first sight for us! Its a 3 bedroom on over a half of an acre in Meadowview Temecula. (Meadowview?! Yeah our dream location.)
Bryan and I eloped after 3 weeks of dating, lived on a sailboat for a few weeks, then moved 5 times in 3 years, had a surprise baby girl, we both finished school and launched new careers, got 6 animals, and now we have another baby on the way... can you tell we like a certain amount of CRAZY in our
lives?? No but really... we get stir crazy if we don't have a significant amount of change and adventure in our lives so the fact that we will always have a new project and a new possibility to dream about is seriously a dream come true in itself! I have never liked the idea of owning a track home, I would trade the nice new amenities for some space and freedom any day! The more we talk about the way we want Marley and Lennix to grow up the more we are 100% confident in our decision. Bryan dreams about go carting in the yard with his kids, an archery range, getting a horse. I dream about a big porch, a garden and spending most of our time playing outside. SO... wish us luck! Operation "little brown turd" renovation... commence!  
Here are a few ideas of the little projects we will be taking on in the next few months or years:
We will be painting the house white and adding little black shutters. We will also add a little white fence,  some landscaping (lots of english tea roses, ground cover, some grass and lots of red maples and other trees that turn colors in the fall). Eventually we will maybe add a little interest to the roof line with a cute little front stoop.... voila! Face lift.   
 On the back of the house we are going to add a porch, my dad is Mr. handy man so he will helping us out a lot with this one! 
We are just going to paint the cupboards white for a temporary fix, but eventually we are going to extend the kitchen out and build an an inexpensive but lovely Ikea kitchen... with white subway tiles!  
My style is very minimalistic... so think lots of white and lots of light (I may even get brave enough to put my dream floors in... white!!) SOO happy I get to create it from scratch I would have never justified making improvements to an already beautiful (but not my style) house.

No longer does a music lover need to bother about traveling out of range when a
fantastic song comes on over the vehicle radio. Hardware mechanisms used in
the manufacturing of a Wi - Fi internet radio system is
less complicated and the point of ergonomics is kept in mind
by the manufactures. Many people will be happy with replaceable batteries for home use and occasional outings.
