House Pictures Finally!

I am going to go ahead and write this post and hopefully I can figure out how to schedule it to post if I am not able to write a post tomorrow. Deaner and I are planning on leaving the hotel a little before 7:00am to take me to Frankfurt International Airport. I am really torn about going home. On one hand, I CANNOT wait to get there and to see all my friends and family. I can't wait to sleep in a comfy bed, in an air conditioned room, in silence (because the windows won't have to be wide open!) On the other hand, I am really going to miss Deaner and I feel bad about leaving him here for a week by himself. There is no way in hell I would ever let him leave me for that long! It just didn't seem logical for BOTH of us to only be able to go home for 4 days for this wedding. The plane tickets were $900 EACH and it seemed silly for both of us to have to rush through the weekend. SO, I get to go early. I mean someone has to do our winter shopping right?

Anyways, I figure that I owe y'all the rest of the pictures of our house. Beware, these aren't as good. It is hard to take pictures that show the WHOLE room at once. The first pictures are of the master bedroom. I use the term "Master" very loosely! This room needs a lot of work and will definitely be painted immediately. I also think I will lose the scale in the corner! No need to be reminded of my weight everyday!We even have a balcony off our bedroom!Also, you aren't seeing things. The current owners of the house lived in the U.S. for a year many years back and they fell in love with CLOSETS! We are lucky enough to have not one, but TWO closets in our room! This is unheard of in Germany!Guest bedroom #1. Keep in mind all the carpet in all the rooms is being changed.Guest bedroom #2. This room is huge but semi awkward. Originally we were thinking it would be the main guest bedroom but now we are thinking it might be better as the 2nd guest bedroom or maybe eventually a baby's room. There is no really good place for a big bed. And yes, that is a swing.Guest bedroom #3.And finally the view from the 3rd guest bedroom balcony.So, as y'all can see, I have my work cut out for me. I think that the whole house needs to be painted and new carpeting put in every bedroom upstairs. I am not a fan of carpet but hardwoods is out of the question. Plus, the rest of the house in marble floors so that might look weird anyways. I have a feeling that I am going to HATE painting by the time all is said and done. But I promise not to complain as long as all our stuff arrives here and I get it SOON! I just realized that I left pictures of both upstairs bathrooms out by accidently. They just look like plain ole bathrooms! I promise!

Lots of work to do, but it looks like it has lots of potential! I love the balcony off the master and all of the (rare in Europe) closets!

That house is going to look great when you get it all done! I can't believe they have a swing in a bedroom!?! How strange!

Have fun and be safe coming back to America!

That house is so stinkin' cute. I know you probably have tons of things that you want to do, but it really has good structure :-) Congrats!
