New Year, New..... HOUSE!

So, as I celebrate my one year blogging anniversary TODAY..... the Semi-Homemade Family is also celebrating! We got great news this week - we put in an offer on some land and it was accepted! Moving 2010 is officially in motion!

Nope, this isn't OUR house. It's the house across the street! It's beautiful....

THIS is our new lot - woo hoo!! It's the perfect size and totally private in the back...


This is the view from what will be the backyard. Through the trees, down the hill... there's a pretty pond. It's so quiet and peaceful and pretty!



Construction starts soon and we're all really excited! Big Sis is excited about a new bedroom (thank goodness!) and she wants it to be purple. I am planning to use her existing bedding (and possibly switch out the birdies for something else), so I'm not sure how purple will play in, but... got some time to think about it. Just the thought of all the semi-homemade decorating ahead of me this year gets me excited all over again!

That's gorgeous... I need to chat with you about our housing plans as well... I think Mr. Sasha needs some advice from Mr. Fix-It.
