So take a look at this beauty!

Every Sunday for the past 3 months or so, we take a 'Sunday Drive." Greg and I try to have a plan of where to go, looking at different areas to possibly move to. The kids crab and complain and ask if we are going home yet. Occassionaly Declan asks me pull over so he can puke. It's good fun =) And since we are all confined in Maxivan, it counts as family time in my book. Well, this morning was no different. We headed out the door around 11:30 and spent the day tooling around the country hills.

I've posted on my Facebook page some of the houses we've come across. Most of them are either short sales or foreclosed. The past 2 foreclosed houses have been left unlocked, and we take a peek around. Well, today we didn't get lucky in that aspect, but we did gain entry to 2 gated communities that we would have wasted a trip out to the country for otherwise. Imagine my surprise when this is the house we pulled up to....

Hello LOVER!

Declan informed me it was 17 steps up to the front door.

I honestly could not decide which porch I would rather drink my glass of wine on.

I think it's been waiting for me to find it. It's totally the house I have in my mind. The only possible snag is that we don't think they allow any livestock animals... and since we would like to be as 'off the grid' as possible, we believe the house is not on a well or septic system. I've contacted our realtor to see what he can find out, he'll let me know Tuesday morning....
I think anyone that knows me would say this house is screaming my name!
Now, back to which porch for that much needed glass of wine...
