Okay, this post will be mostly pics, and not so much gab. I would like to point out that this is in no way a complete tour, as our home is still a mess. We moved in literally 2 days ago, so you get the cool stuff. So far. I will also point out that this is a memoir to the reasons I bought this house.

Aaaaaaaand now we will commence the long awaited picture-fest of the new Cutler Casa. Enjoy. (The pics aren't in order. I'm too lazy to do that... Deal with it.)

Sorry Carrie, here's a shot from the front!
Fire pit. WOOT!
Original hard-wood floors. I'm in love.
Bathroom. It's actually bigger than is looks. Bead Board. YES.
Thanks again Momma Gili for the new bed spread!!!
The bedroom. Looks country, right?
Old, jacked up walls are the best.
Door to Matt's domain, aka shop. Don't mess with his space.
Bet you wish you had a box car on your property? It's not the shop, in case you were wondering...
This thing is seriously sweet.

Everyone's go-to favorite flowers. The daisy. :)
Can you spot one of our chickens hiding in the foliage? :) Hint: it's grey and looks like a rock.
Door to the garage. Is anyone else waiting for Emma Smith to walk out?

I love the established landscaping. There is some work to do here and there, but the perennials are awesome!
Random, but I also love the kitchen drawer handles.
Red. Kitchen. Door. Obsessed.
AND THIS IS IT. I love this house because it's 100 years old, and all the hardware stayed! I've always wanted a home that was old and had TONS of character and a story, but you can only find those back east nowadays. Well, my friends, I found it. Woot!
This is the view of the front walk from the front door.
Eastern Idaho Sunsets..... Mmmmm. From the front porch.

A couple more shots...
And lawn...
And lawn. We've got big plans for this lawn though... 100 ft. slip n slide in the backyard, and in the front, volleyball net. Eh? And all of those shots are completely separate parts of the yard... Whew! 2 acres of AWESOME.
HUGE maple trees. They shade the house in the afternoon. Keeps the place COOL. And Stacie, I already told Matt that he's not allowed near these at night.... We know what happens...

So that, my friends, is the beginnings of something wonderful. We are absolutely thrilled at our find. There were a few criteria we were looking for in a house: land, in the country (so we could keep our chickens), on a quiet street, old house, shop, yada yada.... Point is, we got EVERYTHING we wanted, and so much more, and for such a great deal! We are definitely blessed, and we are reminded of that every time we turn on the water and feel that crazy awesome water pressure.

And..... The end. Any questions?

I'm not dead. Well, I feel dead after the past couple of days, but I can assure all of you, I'm well. :)

I've had a post in the draft section for quite some time, but I wanted to ensure the enjoyment of all readers by adding pictures as well, but I haven't gotten around to it. But I will......

Matt and I just bought another house, so we are working VERY HARD on getting it all fixed up and ready to move into next week. We've pulled 15 hour work days on that house for the past week. Luckily, Matt has pretty much the greatest family ever, and Susan, Jess, Lindsay, GENTRAL, Kaitlyn and Christian have been so gracious (and patient) in helping us get this house situated. Oh, and thanks Mark for sharing your wonderful wife with us. :)

I'll go ahead and post pics of the house soon too. Lemme just say.... It's freaking awesome. 100 year old farm house. Hence, the work. But it is going to be worth it. Three words... Skeleton key doorknobs.

So, that's what I've been up to lately. I hope that suffices for now, Kellie. :) I'll get those pics up soon....
