The new home buyers to be....

So operation Denver continues on and I could not be more excited.  Since rent is pricey (and by pricey I mean ridiculous) G and I have talked about buying a little place for the next few years.  I have no idea how to do this.  I called a Denver realtor yesterday who looked nice in her picture and she answered saying, "This is Marie, how can I help you?"  I said, "Hello Marie, I would like to buy a house."  As soon as I said it I realized that you probably don't buy a house like you order moo goo gai pan from a Chinese take out. I have been learning a lot about the house buying process and Marie and I are probably going to get best friend necklaces after this whole thing is over.  Anyway, she asked what we were looking for and so I thought of a few things on our very limited budget that were a "must" (ha).
  For starters, G and I love porches and fireplaces. Why not combine them? Duh. It's a no brainer.
How do people NOT have a lazy river in their downstairs? Talk about genius. You can cancel your seven peaks pass and save money. This is far more economical in the long run. 

The classic slide/stair combo is imperative for those wanting to make their transportation to different floors more enjoyable and also out of respect for those guests who may have recently had knee surgery and can't climb stairs.
Now here's an economical idea, an underground garage with a secret car.  Why waste garage space filling it up with cars when you can have one of these? 
Washing hands is fun again with real live goldfish in the sink.
How do more people NOT have an inflatable lawn tent? Think of the possibilities...

What about a bowling alley in the basement with faces of everyone in your family painted on the lanes? Talk about family night activity deluxe.
Why not celebrate valentines day all year round with a little love pool in the backyard? 
Obviously Marie was not prepared for all my exceptional suggestions so I kept them in my brain for later.  Even though we may end up just having regular old stairs instead of a slide and a normal garage for our cars, it's still exciting to think about owning a home.
Unless Marie can find us the indoor bowling family face ally, we may have to settle for frequent trips to the public park for our recreation... 
Have I mentioned that I love the two humans with me in this picture no matter where we live? I do.

  1. Congrats on the hubby's new residency and good luck on the house hunt! I'm sure you'll love it there! Our old pals from nursing school Laura K. and Lindsay D. both live in Denver. I can give you their contact info if you want to talk to them about neighborhoods, etc.
