Married Life: A New Home Wishlist

Created using Canva - All Free Resources

One of my big goals this year that hasn't been forgotten is a big next step in Craig and me's marriage...

Buying our first home together. 

Currently we live in my tiny studio apartment of a lil under 500 sq feet. I swear it's not a tiny home, lol, it's just a small condo, which I've been happily living in for the past 5 and half. Two Years alone, Three & half years with Craig and his two fur babies Angel & Gabby. It's a tight fit but it's time to say goodbye to my lil home. 

I've started the process of looking and it seems like I've been going to Open Houses forever. I'd say I've seen at least 40 homes and it's just...Nothing feels like Home yet.

It's definitely put a gloom cloud over the whole process, but I can't give up.

My New Home Wishlist

Budget: under $300,000

Town House/Condo

2 Bathrooms
(At least 1.5 baths)

High ceilings

Big Kitchen w/ a dishwasher 
(Dishwasher is a deal breaker! As God as I my witness I never want to wash a dish again!!) 

2-3 bedrooms
Common Charges (HOA Fee) under $400

Finished Basement
(Aka for the Man Cave)

Ample Visitor Parking

Oh how I want to say open concept, if not that's okay. Perhaps I need to take everything more seriously and narrow down my wishlist a little further?  I don't know...I'm going to be extra hopeful this Spring/Summer for the right place to come along! =)
