My husband and I recently started looking to purchase our first house. Right now, we have a little condo on the lake. We’re spoiled. It’s beautiful here and although I don’t want to leave, I can’t keep making teaching materials on the couch with my laptop. I need an office – a real office. So, our search has started.
It’s horrible. In the past few weeks I’ve learned that house hunting is nothing like HGTV makes it out to be. They don’t give you 3 beautiful homes within your price range and let you talk it over in a cute little cafe until you choose one.
So, we went to meet with a builder today. It would be great to be able to pick out everything I like right? Well, this particular builder we went to meet with will not be the one to build our house. “Oh, you want a roof with your house? That will be an upgrade.” “Ohh….you want door knobs on the doors? That’s an upgrade.” “You want a wall on your bedroom? Upgrade.”
(Okay, I’m exaggerating. But we’ll just say…I was frustrated haha!) Needless to say, we are taking a tiny break until I convince the Property Brothers to become my best friends and renovate a house for us. 🙂 🙂
I was touched by all the positive feedback I received from my daily schedule ribbon that I created last week for my room. Many of you asked where I got it from, so I wanted to take a minute and share with you the pack I created to go with this.
