new house pictures

we are homeowners squared!! instead of buying our second home in the hamptons (ha ha!) we purchased one in annapolis! it was built in 1958 and to steal the words of our appraiser, "it's in pristine condition...just like dick van dyke still lives there!" we have a lot of updating to do.

the house is in a wonderful location across from the navy football stadium in a neighborhood called admiral heights. when we went to closing, i received 2 gifts. flowers from the sellers (how sweet is that??), and a nice bottle of wine from the title company. we left the closing and ken and i drove over to the house. and yes, my sweet husband carried me into our new house...thankfully for his back, i'm only 4 months pregnant and have only gained 2 pounds! i was telling ken how sweet the housewarming gifts were. then, playfully, i asked him what he got me for a housewarming gift. he paused for a moment and with a big smile he said, "a house!"

uhhhhhhhh right....good point! :)
