Happy Friday

I’m not going to lie, last week was a tough one for me with Nina’s passing and Josie had her first stomach bug all week long. This week, I felt like I was playing catch up and now that it’s Friday, I’m finally feeling on top of it again. Just in time for the weekend.

I ran across this house from Trisha Troutz’ blog a few days ago and I keep dreaming about it…

house 1

house 2




Isn’t it fantastic?  To see more of the house, you can go here.  Unfortunately, it’s located in Texas so that’s a pretty long commute for Graham.  You want to hear some depressing reality?  The house is on the market for $1.1 million.  I decided to look in the area that Graham and I are interested in eventually buying and this is the house that is listed for 30k more…

81401423_2In case you think for some odd reason the houses seem sort of on par.  This home is a 2 bed 1 bath and 1,190 square feet, not in the best location.  The texas house is 4 beds, 4 baths and 4,352 square feet.  The local house will probably sell within about ten days of being on the market and go for well over asking.  Can someone please remind me how incredibly miserable the Texas summers are?  I’m at a bit of a loss here.

    Finding a ton in common with you today, Kate. My littles are in the throws of that same stomach bug now and it is not a nice one. I remember when they were really little and had the stomach flu. Just terrible. I feel for you and Josie!
    And the house thing. Yup. We just bought our first house — 2/1 at 1012 square feet. Not as bad a price as the one you show here, but still pretty dang outrageous and very hard won. It’s the price we pay, I guess for living in beautiful Northern California. Ever considered moving across The Bay?

    Well, I will agree with you that the Texas house is gorgeous…but yes, Texas summers (even springs) are probably hot and humid…but, yeah, I do hear you on the cost of housing. I can’t quite commiserate on the costs because the Bay Area is notoriously expensive. Someday I’m sure you will have a fantastic place of your own!
