I don't think I've written here that we decided that instead of just doing the easy thing and buying a house in Boise, Idaho, we'd hire someone to build one!
This is what our lives have looked like for most of the summer. Jeff, me and usually my mom looking at house plans, making decisions and planning, planning, planning.
Finally today, the house is done and it is ours! I don't have all-the-way-done pictures yet (I'll take some when we get there next week) but these will be nice to remember and will give you an idea.

The view from the back...the main reason we decided on this plot. I hope that neighbor never moves and always keeps his yard looking that awesome.

So excited to have a fireplace, even more excited that we will be there in time to hang stockings on it this year! :)
2nd most exciting thing(s) about the kitchen: window cabinets and walk-in pantry!
There are many more photos but they are all in PDF form so I'll have to do a house tour when we get there. I must say that it is all such a dream right now and I can't believe we are actually going to live here. But we are...next week!
In the meantime, I'd better get back to packing!
P.S. My parents have been so amazing through this whole process. They have loved us and taken care of our girls while we traveled to and from Boise to make important decisions, spent long hours helping us make plans and listened to endless conversations about kitchen cabinets, paint colors, etc. Oh yeah and WE HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH THEM FOR ALMOST 9 MONTHS! That was definitely not our plan when we came but none of this could have ever happened without that fact. Their support, love and confident encouragement have really made this dream of ours come true.
More to come!
