Home sweet Home in Vegas??

I NEVER in my life thought I would bring those 2 words together, EVER! Home and is still very surreal but quickly happening. I can honestly say that I am happy about it but still really scared at the same time. I am completely trusting in God on this one though, Brian and I both are. This trip to Vegas was pretty emotional for me. It was SO exciting and SO fun, but it was also crazy driving around KNOWING that we were going to live there....WOW...what an emotional rollercoaster. We sat at the Bellagio the last night we were there eating dinner on the patio and watching the amazing fountains and I was just thinking that wow...I am going to live this...we can come here and have a super nice dinner ANYTIME we want...Vegas is like another world....there is NOTHING like it. I don't think I will want to live there forever..but it will be fun....IF ONLY I can TAKE ALONG my family and friends!! Man...that is THE hardest thing for me! I build such close bonds with the people I love the is SOO hard to be so far away and not to be able to drive to see my parents over the weekend, for my niece and nephew to be only 5 hours away, to be able to drop everything and go to my sister's have lunch with my BEST girls, dinner with my Jr League girls, going out with my fabulous gay friend Phillip, shopping with friends....UGH! This is the HARDEST part of all....BUT....I KNOW you ALL will want to come visit and YOU BETTER...DANG IT!!! Our DOOR is always open....Speaking of doors....WANNA SEE PICS OF OUR NEW HOUSE????????????'s a little background on the house before I show ya pics!

The house is about 4 miles from the strip in a secluded perfect neighborhood. It is a 24 hour guard gated and that was very important for us. We wanted to be close enough to the strip but far enough so Brian can escape from the strip world. The neighborhood is quiet, has TONS of trees, a pool, tennis courts, walking trails and a clubhouse. Our house is a little strip of a street with about 8 houses in this rectangle. The house was built in 1978, its 3330 sq ft. , 3 bedrooms, 3 bath, an upstairs patio area, 2 outdoor living spaces downstairs, a built in BBQ, mini sink, fridge, pool and spa. It is the perfect house for entertaining and for that we are SOO excited!!! are the PICTURES for you!! There are bare with me! :o)

This is the courtyard and front doors to the house...the courtyard is closed off by an iron gate.

This is the the front doors taken from the inside of the house by the stairs.
