The NC house hunt!! Spoiler alert: We bought a house!!

We bought a beautiful house in NC!! I can hardly believe we pulled it off! For the interested, you can see pictures of the new house, which is not yet complete, here!

 I am tired, so I am not going to go into excruciating detail here, but suffice to say that house hunting with a 2-year-old and 3-year-old is just not a good idea. Add in that you are trying to sell said 2- and 3-year-old on the place by making the trip fun, and you have totally exhausted and stressed parents. We saw lots of houses--Nicholas more than I since I took kids back to the hotel for naps and resting two of the three days. And we did lots of fun stuff--swimming in the hotel pool once or twice a day, going to a great park called Pullen park that has a train, carousel, kiddie boats, paddle boats, playgrounds and picnic areas two evenings. And we ate out a lot, which the kids didn't get sick of! And most importantly, we found a house!! It's in Cary, NC technically since the area of Apex where it is located has been annexed by Cary. However, it still has an Apex address. Nicholas and I have signed all the paper work, so it is just a bit away and we will be the proud owners of two houses! (Please sell, Northport house!!)


  1. I'm so excited for you. Get some rest (even if it's just sitting for 10 minutes in a dark quiet room) or do 10 min of yoga.

  2. I second that!
    Congrats on the new house!

  3. Yay for a new house!!! What neighborhood is that in - it looks familiar??? I used to work in Cary!! And we love Pullen Park. Crazy small world :)

    1. It's in the Park at West Lake and I would love your input on preschools and fun things to do if you have any!!!

  4. Congratulations on the new house! House-hunting can be very overwhelming, especially when you have kids involved in the process. House after house, they all start to look the same. A lot of things go into looking for a house, but once you've found the one you know it's all been worth it! Congratulations again on finding your dream home. Good luck!
