Also, I’m incredibly excited for my sister & her husband: they are buying their first home! Their offer was accepted over 4 competing offers. I’m so happy they’ll have a place to call their own. And I’m living vicariously through her, since we won’t be able to buy a home for awhile; in fact, I just read this article on USAA about why military families shouldn’t buy homes. *sigh* Anyhow, here’s a pic of their new home, provided all goes well until closing! I figure I’ll have a lot of free-time on my hands with Jon gone training, so maybe I’ll help them move & organize. It’s so nice! 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, office, fireplace, and it’s on 1/2 acre…plenty of room for gardening & kids to play!
On that note, any creative housewarming gift ideas?
