My House

Here is the promised pic of my new house. I absolutely love it!! The bedrooms are big. My kitchen is big. My pantry is big. I finally feel like we have a house big enough for our huge family. We don't feel crowded. We are comfortable. I also have a master bathroom- FINALLY. Although when I have to pee I know Sei can hear me while he's laying in bed... Romantic, I know. :P
Anyway... I need to get back into the swing of things in the blogging world. I have a million blogs to catch up on and posts to write. I'll still be doing blog ads, but I will post my "real" posts at the top.
I am happy to be in Texas near family, but I have to admit there are things about Utah I really, really miss. Like... being able to afford rec flag football! It's like $70 a kid here and it was $30 in Utah. I guess it's not the "norm" in Texas for families to have 40 kids like it is in Utah. :)

I've missed y'all!!

omar said...

Nice looking house!

I read "My pantry is big" and thought it said "My party is big." I was thinking, "Wow, Tori, you've been living there like 10 minutes and you're throwing big parties?"

LOL at Omar's comment.

Nice house. How did you get a brand new house and a lawn, too? THat's a great deal.

Tori :) said...

Aubrey- Brown is in. LOL. It'll be green in the spring and then I'll kill it in the summer because I won't be able to afford to water it. ;)

Omar- Oh yeah, my party is HUGE!!! I'm having a blog party right now!!

K- House, lawn and it's fenced in. YAY!! The houses are so inexpensive here, but the property taxes are high. Although I'm already impressed by the schools, so I don't feel bad for paying high taxes... :P

BEAUTIFUL! I'm sooooo happy for you! Your new home is wonderful!

I've missed you too; so glad you're back!

Mel said...

I love the house too! It's nice having you back:)

swampbaby said...

Can't wait to see it in person!

Amanda said...

So glad that you are back! I love your house! Brick looks so nice! I am so happy for you and your family!

Our grass is usually always brown because we are in a drought and I feel guilty watering it too much even when it is our "scheduled" days to water. :(

Yvonne said...

I LOVE the house and am so glad you are all happy. What can be better!!!

We have white grass until the end of April, but, hey, at least you don't have to mow, water, or rake!!!

Nancy Face said...

The house is beautiful, and I'm so happy it's big enough for all your needs! HOORAY! :D

I'm also excited that you're back to your blogginess! YAY! :D

Dana said...

And Texas is glad to have you back!

$70 for football? That is nuts. Must be a metroplex thing because it is only $35 where I live!

PJ said...

Love the house! So glad you are settling in...Welcome Home:)

Millie said...

Hooray!!!

They have bricks in Texas? And are you guys still at that honeymoon, "Don't listen to me pee" stage?

Tori :) said...

Stepherz- Thanks! I'm glad to be back.

Mel- Thanks Mel. I need to play catch up on your blog.

Swampbaby- Yeah, why didn't you see it while y'all were here? We're dorks.

Amanda- Yeah, Sei isn't diggin the brown grass. He's used to our way green grass in Utah. But he forgets that we wouldn't see it 1/2 the year due to snow...

Yvonne- I hear ya about the white grass!!

Nancy- YAYs all around!!

Dana- I may need to move out to where you are so I can afford flag football!

PJ- Thanks!

Millie- Not really, it's just kinda funny that he can totally hear me and then I come out and he still is a typical male.. ifyou catch my drift. ;)

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

Welcome back! The new house is so beautiful! Glad you are comfy there!

S said...

Eric's Mommy said...

LOVELY!!!!

tara said...

You know, Football is BIG in Texas, especially in the metroplex area, so it's a serious business! Your house is cute, and yes, the lawn will be green and growing come spring. I didn't know they had brown "sod" too, lol.

We'll have to plan to get together, what are you doing for Spring Break? Ours is the 3rd week of March.

Lauren said...

Your house is babe-alicious! OK, it is beautiful. I love it! I am so happy for you!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

Turn on the fart fan. Ooops I mean, the "exhaust" fan. That covers up stink and the sound of tink both!

elasticwaistbandlady said...

I want to have a Laura Ingalls moment and run wildly through your yard with my arms outstretched.

I need to buy a better bra first, though.

carronin said...

Congratualtion on your big beautiful house! Yay! Room for everyone.

No Cool Story said...

I love the brick! And the shutters on the windows! :)
Sweeeeet!
