Well, I don't have pictures with me, but I'll post a few later. Here is a recent update:
I did go snowboarding for the first time with Josh and it was so much fun!! Of course I fell a lot, but I did pretty well for my first time... (I mean I was on the bunny slopes, so hopefully I did good, haha). Josh was the perfect teacher, extremely patient and fun to spend the day with! Pictures to follow...
Now to the big news... for everyone who hasn't heard, we bought another place!! We were looking at houses for the longest time (over 6 months) and couldn't find much that we liked... everything was really big, like 4/5 bedrooms, which we obviously wouldn't need for awhile. So we reverted back to looking at townhouses and that same day we found our new home!! It's perfect for us!! It about 350 sq ft. bigger than our current place, it has 2 bed/ 2 bath and a garage! It's only a few years old and it's beautiful! I LOVE IT!! We figured with just the two of us still, 2 rooms is plenty for now. Once we have a little one, we still have the extra room for them when they come. It's less rooms to furnish, we can do a lot of nice things to it (i.e., new hardwood floors, yay!) and of course it was much cheaper than our price range, meaning we can save even more now!
It was seriously a steal of a deal and we jumped on it right away... we put an offer on it about 1 1/2 weeks ago on a Saturday and the offer was accepted same day. That Monday 2 more offers came in, so we're lucky we jumped on it when we did. We've been in the process of doing the inspections, appraisal, etc. and everything is coming back great! We are closing a week from today, Jan. 28 and can not WAIT to move it! The best part about it, is it's really close for Josh to work and really close for me, it's like directly in the middle! And we're super close now to Mike, Rebecca and the girls!! Another perk... our church building is on the same street, so we can walk to it every week!
We're still keeping our Provo condo and will just be renting it out for now, which is crazy to think we'll be landlords, haha. I'm really excited about the new purchase and hope you'll come visit us now!! I have a few pictures I'll put up soon.
I'm really excited to get moved in and do the little fix ups we want to do. With all of the money we didn't spend on a house, also means we have a budget for some new furniture! I can't wait to decorate all over again and design our new place! Of course I'll post pictures soon... but I want you to see what it looks like after it's done too...
Let's get started!
