Hello, Hello, Hello! Happy September! I am excited to be back, and I have some amazing news to share with you.
We bought…wait for it…a POT HOUSE!!
Mmmhmm, you read that right. While beautiful to look at, our new house was filled with the odor of weed, or Mary Jane, Ganga, cannabis, whatever you want to call it. It smelled like my old high school friend’s car after she tried to hot box it at 4:20 on Friday afternoon.
It took me a minute to distinguish the smell…it’s been so long since I have been around it, and honestly, my realtor and my husband had to fill me in.
I’m still trying to figure out how Mike and Zach knew that smell so readily…hmmm…haha. Just kidding! They are both a little too straight laced for that…
The housing market is COMPETITIVE in California right now, and we had put offers in on several other houses before this one.
Those offers (some edging (uncomfortably) on a half million dollars) were blown out of the water with cash buyers. Crazy Californians.
We lost a beautiful house that I deemed the vineyard (it had a gorgeous grape covered arbor), and then there was a one story home that would have been perfect had it not been for that hefty price tag. We are beyond thankful for that loss.
So, what made us buy the pot house?!
There were three things:
- There are two beautiful, well producing, sweet red cherry trees in the backyard.
- Location, location, location.
- Price – because when you buy a pot house, you don’t have to beat anyone out with a higher offer. 😉 Pot houses are funny like that.
Mike and I are pretty handy, so we figured we could solve the issue of the smell, and we were right, but it has taken us ALL.SUMMER.LONG. We’re still working on the garage…yuck.
No worries, though, blog friends! The delicious recipes will be coming your way again soon, along with some fun DIY house posts!!
