dream home...

I found my dream home today! So I called Matt to see if he'd checked our lottery tickets, just incase we had won, and we could go buy it now!! haha! Well, we did win the lottery... $21. Hmm, I dont think $21 covers anything, in fact I think we paid more than that for the ticket! haha!
Oh well,
I wish we had enough money to buy THIS little shack on Narrabeen Lake. It doesn't have a price but I know it would be out of our league! We will just have to keep saving...
Its just so perfect!
4 Bedroom
lake front
In Narrabeen
It has a little granny flat for visitors
Oh, I love it!
Well, thats all... Just wanted to share my little find!
Xx Jess

ETA: So Matt called the realestate agent today out of curiosity of how much they want for "our dream house".... wait for it..... TWO MILLION DOLLARS!
I better continue buying lottery tickets!! haha
And my parents are trying to sell their BEAUTIFUL home/thriving business for less than that! far out, I should tell them to up their price by 200%.

baby # 2

Yesterday I went and had my 20 week ultrasound. It was so exciting!!! Im going public for this birth, as I did with Libby. So there are no extra check ups and special care (unless needed) but I was so happy that I asked the ultrasound lady if she could please print out a photo of the baby so I could show Matty (who stayed at home to look after Libby). The lady was so nice and said in that case she'd take a 3D photo from thier new machine... HOW EXCITING!!!!
So here are a couple of photos of baby #2 both in 2D and 3D. I didn't find out the sex, just incase you were interested!!
