Vitals Stats

No, this is not a birth story (although I love a good birth story). Don't worry, that will come once I get to know you guys a little better... in the meantime, here's one of my all-time favorite photos of my boy when he was just a little wee-man, at one week old.

So getting to the point now: I told you all about how I found our house, and that Ben and I decided to take a leap and go ahead and purchase it before we moved back to Nashville. Now for the boring stuff - unless you are a real estate nerd like I am, in which case you will relish these factoids :)

Year Built: 1979

Square Feet: 2,700 (about 1,700 on the main floor, plus a finished basement)

Garage: Yes! 2 Car! This was never on our "must-have" list, but we looove that garage now. Even if it's currently still filled with boxes and furniture that haven't found a home since we moved in last summer.

Bedrooms: 3 on the main floor, plus a guest room downstairs

Bathrooms: 3 full (2 on the main floor, one in the basement - interesting tidbit: the downstairs bathroom has a HUGE pink jacuzzi tub with gold fixtures. It rocks. And I'm not being sarcastic, we really love it.)

Lot: 1.15 acres (lots of mowing and weed-eating for Ben). And oh do we have stories to tell you about Ben's epic battles with the lawnmower and our hilly yard!

Rose Bushes: at least 6 - we were so grateful this house had mature landscaping. Even if it's not what we'll keep forever, at least we don't have to stress about it much until we're ready. I love our knockout roses - we do virtually no maintenance, and have happy hot pink blooms all summer long. I love any (100% free) way to add a little pizazz to the kitchen table!

So there you have it, I think that covers the basics! We don't have a floor plan, but creating one is definitely on my to-do list. Anybody know of a good, free online program that would let me do this? Leave a comment if you do! Otherwise, until tomorrow!
