Move Out, Move In

Well friends, things have been CRAZY (the good kind of crazy). We put our home on the market and within a month, we had two offers. If you want need a fabulous real estate agent, let us know. The people buying our home needed to move in September 30th. This was great except for one thing- we had a ten day vacation planned for September 18-28th. We had found out the news and had three days to pack our luggage and entire house before we left. We flew home Sunday night and moved out Monday.

The really great news is this...
Before we got the last offer on our West Jordan house, we met our agent in South Weber on a Friday night and looked at four homes, just in case. There were two great homes in the same circle for sale. One was vacant. Now it's occupied by the Roos'! We were able to move our things directly into the new home. We are thrilled to be here. The neighbors already arranged a barbecue so we can meet everyone in the circle. Those of you who know me well, know how happy I am about this. HeRoos and I are really hoping that we can have a "neighborhood family" here. We've prayed long and hard for a place that we can raise our family and create positive memories.

We've had requests for pictures, so as soon as everything is unpacked and I can find my camera cord (and my make-up), I'll post a few. Also, we need to post about our East Coast trip. It was amazing!

Oh my gosh!!! Congratulations! It sounds like you had even more of a whirlwind move than I did! I got the chills when you said your neighbors have a BBQ planned for you to get to know everyone...becaue that is exactly what we talked about! I am so happy for you and I hope this neighborhood is just what you were looking for! I, on the other hand, am having a much harder time finding that perfect home...but know it will happen in good time! Cheers to living with the in-laws!! haha
