    Since Angie and 2015 won't have their questions up til tomorrow, I'll do my public service and help provide myself and others something to distract us from all the things we should probably get done today.

    So since I'm in full-on home-buying mode, tell us how you knew that your home was "the one". What about it just felt right? If you don't have a home, tell us how you knew that ISU was the college for you!

    If neither apply, you don't get to play. Or you can say your favorite Easter candy, but if the answer is "peeps", you are a terrible person.
    I knew whether or not I was interested in a house after just looking in after taking my first step into the house. It was just a gut feeling. There were houses that I would turn around and walk out after just taking a quick glance from the entrance. Luckily there was only 1 house that I liked what I saw when I took that first step, and turns out the rest of the house was not to shabby either, so I kind of lucked out.

    Re: Off-Topic Thursday!

    When we bought our current home, I only had three criteria:
    - driveway that faced south to help melt the snow
    - flat driveway, for a basketball hoop
    - no privacy fence - just don't like them.

    We ended up buying the first house we saw. By the way, it has a sloped driveway that faces north, and we have a privacy fence.

    Jelly beans, regular or spiced, as long as they aren't Starburst.

    Only the original flavors, not tropical or anything else.

    The Reeses Eggs are pretty dope too. Higher peanut butter to chocolate ratio make them a change up from your standard cup.

    Well if you get here after next Saturday you would have the place to yourself. Heading north on the 26th.

    And for the last 10 days there had been NO East wall/glass facing the ocean. Just big plastic and spring clips with the hurricane shutters closed most of the time. It's terrible, almost like a cave. I have to open it up just to get some light.

    The view the other direction (over the intra-coastal) ain't half bad either. If you see that sliver of a bridge - that's the Jensen Beach Causeway. You should be able to find the place from that.



    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: Off-Topic Thursday!

    Built my first house 12 years ago (got everything a 23 year old single guy could want)...........the mrs and i just had our first kid and just bought a new lot and will be starting the design process and probably be moving in a year. I have a feeling it is going to be way more expensive than i want it - but i figure if i am spending the next 20years + there, i better make it the way i want it.


    cadburry eggs have a special place in my heart.
