We found a home!… well sort of..

Awhile back our family decided it was time for us to purchase our “first home”… I’ve been renting for a long time, (atleast 12 yrs) and three kids later we need more space… I must say, I do love my apartment, its a good size and I’ve made it my own style and love the way it looks But its time to move on to bigger and better things…
I didn’t know that the whole buying a home was such a stressful, lengthy process, specially since I know what I want how I want it and so forth.. (I’m not settling) plus I also know we were ready to leave Queens NY… I’ve never been a city girl, I’ve always felt like a country girl stuck in the city.. I hate traffic and being so close to neighbors,  and not having a decent backyard.. I want grass, space, good schools, safety, no main streets, etc…
We first started looking out in Shirley LI, I really like it out their, big homes, space, yard, close to the Hamptons which is where we spend a lot of our summer.. then we started looking a little closer to the city in the neighborhood of Deer Park.(homes are smaller but neighborhood is great) we’ve been back and forth… and just as I was taking a back seat to the home search my mother approached us with a proposition…
She told us she was moving in with her long time boyfriend to New Jersey and wanted to know if we wanted to take over the house, (she doesn’t want to sell it) I was very happy with this idea because that neighborhood is the best {New Hyde Park} schools are a 9 out of 10, its beautiful, still close to the city, close to our friends and family and the kids already know the area and neighbors. So we decided to move into my mother home and now the process begins! Time to make it our own… stay tuned for all the before and afters.. (we move in, in February)
