Move over Barbie...this is my dream house

I remember when I was little and I would play with my barbies and life seemed so simple. Barbie had it all. She had a corvette, Ken, cool clothes, and a kid sister Skipper which even I had in real life ( I actually had 2 and a brother...but Barbie understood the challenges of being an older sister). The best part about Barbie though was her dream house! I used to dream about having a house with a cool elevator, entertaining guests in my fabulous kitchen, or curling up in front of the fireplace with my real life Ken. Fast forward 25 years, and I found my Ken but finding the "dream house" is proving to be a little more difficult. Is it Barbie's fault that I seem dissatisfied with what the houses seem to lack instead of what they seem to have? It all seems so easy when you are five: you grow up, get married, have some babies, and live happily ever after in this fabulous home. But nobody talks to you about mortgage, taxes, insurance, school districts for these hypothetical babies, and so on...talk about your mood kill! Tomorrow we will go look at 10 potential dream houses and hopefully I will report back that we have found a place we can call home. I doubt any of them have an elevator though......
