Blind Faith

I think my female friends will appreciate just how much faith I have in my husband.

He is in Houston making an offer on a house this morning. A house I haven't seen. The only house he looked at that didn't have pictures online of the inside. Go figure.

I've seen pictures of the outside and the floorplan.

My requirements for a house were that it be at least 4 bedrooms; have a room off the gameroom that could be used as a school room (in this case the media room); a park within walking distance and a kitchen open to the family room. This house meets each of those and then some. It's 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 2 1/2 car garage, 3563 square feet with a gameroom, media room & study. Ed says it has beautiful dark kitchen cabinets with dark granite with a built-in desk in the breakfast room. Lots of art niches, pretty decorative tile and nice carpet. Fortunately for me, he's very picky when it comes to houses & finishes; plus he's trying SO hard to make sure I'm happy - so I know it will be perfect! I can't wait to see it! He's supposed to take pictures and video of it today.

We're asking for a closing by the end of the month, so I'm praying the offer goes through. The sooner our family can be together again, the better. I miss Ed like crazy and being post partum doesn't really help with that! :-) Its been hard not having him here, but I'm glad he went and found a house so quickly! That makes it all worthwhile.
Hopefully by next week, I'll be writing a post about our closing and moving dates!!

First of all, I'm glad to see a post from you so that I know you haven't been washed or blown away by all the rain and tornados!!!

There is no way I'd let your brother pick out a house for us. You DO have faith and I'm sure Eddie is quite nervous about getting it right! The house looks gorgeous. Good job, Ed!

Love you guys and can't wait to see you.

Hey, how did the evaluations in Chicago go? I gather you survived your road trip with all FOUR of your children! :)

INCREDIBLE!! Maybe I should pastor in Texas so we can get a house like that! I'm very excited for you and super sad for us.

Beth - I had to admit my limitations when it came to Chicago - it was just too much too soon. Fortunately, NACD was awesome about it and I'll be able to do a video/phone eval at the end of July!!
