The Birth of a Home (2)

It's starting to come together now that the walls are up. Rooms seem bigger for some reason. Love the arches!

Adventures in Dining - True Blue

Had a few people recommend the restaurant at the True Blue golf club, so we decided to check it out for breakfast. It's not the usual golf course 19th hole, and there's a nice size dining room plus a heated porch with even more tables. It was a nice day, so we decided to eat on the porch.

Gorgeous view of the 18th green from the porch
I decided to have french toast with a side of bacon. Was impressed with the presentation, and liked how they stood the bacon up like little flags! The bacon was nice and crisp, unlike the usual limp bacon restaurants usually serve. The french toast was perfect! DH ordered eggs and bacon and was pleased with his dish as well. Both breakfasts were less than $5 each, so very affordable!

Walked around the clubhouse after eating and there's a nice outdoor porch overlooking the 18th green as well. I can see golfers relaxing there with a beer after playing. Very inviting! We plan on going back for lunch, and may be back for breakfast as well!

The Birth of a Home (1)

Decided to buy a spec home, as we liked the location and the layout worked. Plus, this way we won't have to worry about replacing the roof, appliances, or water heater like the other houses we were considering. Hard to tell how large the rooms will be without the, it's a little drafty. *L*
