Asheville Update

This past weekend we went to Asheville for one reason and one reason only- the food!!

Okay, not the food, although we did find a couple places we'll HAVE to take you if you come and see us. One was a Caribbean/Mexican restaurant that was awesome!

But the real reason we went was to get a house. And while we were not expecting to find anything right away, we did!

We had been looking online for a month, and had 9-10 places picked out. We hoped no one got to our house before we did! Finally, after a month of looking online, it was time to see them in person.

A few of the houses that we liked previously left a lot to be desired when we actually got to see them. A few we ran from. There were 3-4 that we really liked, and after seeing 10 homes in one day, we settled on 2 for Saturday.

Either one would have been great. One was closer into town, but wasn't as nice of a home. The view was incredible, as was the back patio, but we didn't like it as much as the home we found.

We put the offer in by 4 pm, then by 8:30 pm we had a house!

It's 18 minutes from the hospital. We really debated if that would be an issue, as we wanted at least 15 minutes or closer. We decided this house was too awesome to pass up for just a few extra minutes. Plus its a nice drive by a river- how often do we get that?

Here's a link to 40 of the pictures.

If you go to that site you'll find more explanation on each aspect of the house. Hope you like it as much as we do.
