We're In Escrow!

So, after months of big talk and no show, we finally have some show! Officially now we have signed for a house, and we've never been so excited about our own signatures before! Here are just a few pictures to let all those who aren't around get a glimpse at our castle-to-be!


The front of the house. That tree in the upper, right corner is actually quite pretty.

Another front view, this time looking inside.

The living room as viewed from the kitchen...

...and the living room, viewing toward the kitchen.


A real, already remodeled kitchen. Once we put a fridge and stove, (and faucet, garbage disposal, etc), this will be Melissa's first, REAL kitchen as a wife...she is pretty excited about that.
The bedroom pictures turned out a little fuzzy, but this is one of the bedroom closets. That may seem uninteresting to most people, but once the doors are reinstalled, (they were taken down for the new paint job administered to the whole inside of the home...nice!), this will be the first home to have real closets that we have lived in as a married couple. Apparently Hawaiians do not believe in such luxuries?

The bathroom. There is only one, but it sure is cute! (There are two bedrooms, in case you were wondering).

Here is the back of the house, looking at it from the end of our yard...

...and here is our amazing, quarter-acre lot. It needs a little help, but we are more than willing to lend a hand! We're just excited to watch Juno and our baby run free in our beautiful lawn, someday!

All in all, we are greatly anticipating moving into our 948sq foot, new home. All the inside needs is new carpet, which we'll take care of. Then our attention will go to nothing but moving in, growing baby, and working on our very own yard! Can you tell that we are just a little excited??!!

    Congratulations on your new house!!! It looks really cute and is just the right size for you right now. I can't believe that you have a quarter acre, especially in California! You two inherit a million or two?
