I have lots of exciting stuff to share with you on the blog front as well as in my personal life... WE ARE BUYING A HOUSE!
Steve and I have been lucky and renting for dirt cheep from a good friend of ours for the past 5 years. The time has come though where we have out grown our small 3 bedroom home and need to upgrade. After years of saving for a down payment we are taking the plunge!
We have been looking for months but finally found one home we are in love with. It's a 4 bedroom post and beam house built in 2000 to replicate an 1800ish farm house.
I am a huge fan of older homes the charm that comes along with them. My husband on the other hand hate the idea of the maintenance that comes along with a home built in the 1700 or 1800's. This home is the best of both worlds! Not only that it's on over 8 acres of wooded land..... set deep inside the woods with no neighbors visible. LOVE.
We put on offer on it and waiting to hear back. So please everyone cross your fingers and toes that the sellers accept our offer and we get our perfect home!
As you can imagine all this excitement has me a tad side tracked I am behind on my blog schedule.
To make it up to you.... I have sweet giveaway from my friends at Keep it Sweet Desserts! Keep it Sweet Desserts is an online bakery specializing in desserts and event catering located just outside of New York City.

All three of the cookie varieties I tried were delectable! But those Smoked Sea Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies were love at first bite! They were the perfect chewy cookie with a mix of sweet and salty.
