Much to my surprise there wasn't even one single complaint muttered the entire day. Your prayers worked, friends! I ended up learning so much from our kids during this process. It was incredible.
The market in Dallas is hot right now and finding a house is going to be a challenge. Three of the seven houses in the last post were under contract before we even made it to town. We're really at a disadvantage trying to do this long-distance.
I had to kiss these doors good-bye before I even managed to step foot through them.
Some of the homes we walked through were doozies. I'm talking avocado green stairs paired with orange patterned carpet. Oh, and did I mention the mold growing on the wall? Yikes! Not to be outdone by the house with fire engine red sinks and a fully mirrored bathroom. Floor to ceiling, friends, and all 4 walls. Wowza! I really should have snapped pictures so you could fully appreciate the beauty but we were feeling the heebee jeebees and couldn't get out of these places fast enough. Pass the hand sanitizer please.
These doors gave me a little hope though...
Then, after we returned, this house popped up on the market...
Remember my love for trees?! We've never had a tree this large in our yard.
And here's what's just beyond the fence...
Our realtor promised to swing by and preview this house to see if it's worth another trip up. I have a sneaky feeling we're going to need a new car when all is said and done. Lots of miles between Austin and Dallas and our car has 180,000 miles on it already. Hold on, Betsy!
So, staying true to John and Reed's hunting adventures, not every hunt ends with a prize. This just helps build the anticipation in hopes that the next hunt will yield the trophy.
