I've Been Kinda Busy...

Yep, we're selling our home. We decided we need to take advantage of the extremely low interest rates and get into a more permanent home. We knew when we bought this house that it was our "starter home." At just 1523 sq. ft., it is pretty small and we are outgrowing it fast! I have a lot of mixed feelings about moving. I love our home - we have put a lot of work into it to make it "our home." There are a lot of memories within these walls. We also have great neighbors, and I have made some great friends here. Moving day will be a sad day. I hate change (which is why I live 5 minutes from where I grew up!). But, I am excited to get into a bigger home with more space and plenty of room to grow. It will be nice to be in a place where I can plant a tree and watch it grow for 15+ years.

Needless to say, life has gotten a bit hectic. We are in the process of repainting the basement and fixing a few things along the way. Hopefully we will finish it up tonight - maybe I should get off the computer and get back downstairs to help Bri :o) The sign went up on Saturday and it officially went on the market Monday morning. We have already had 4 showings, and #5 is tomorrow morning! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

On another note, Mother's Day was wonderful. I love being a mom - it is the greatest joy and blessing in the world. Brian made me a yummy breakfast and my kiddos gave me a necklace with each of their birthstones on it. We got to listen to my parents speak in their sacrament meeting - what a treat! After church, we snacked on some cheese and crackers, but not just any cheese and crackers - Brian picked up a couple of specialty cheeses, and they were delightful! Oh, how I love cheese. We also spent some time with both Brian's mom and my mom. It was a great day.

Aw, Happy Cheesy Mother's Day. He he. What a nice hubby you have.

And good luck selling your house!! It's a great time to sell if you're in the right price range. And it's an even better time to buy... Can't wait to see what you guys end up buying!!

What area are you guys looking to move to? I am excited for you and hope the house sells quickly and you find a place that just "feels" right! I am soooo jealous of your cheese and crackers, what a great way to splurge and you deserve every ounce of it!

I think you guys are smart; right now is such a great time to buy. Sure wish I could be the new owner of your current home; it looks so great and your yard totally rocks. Good luck...sounds like you won't have any problem selling it!

I am SO sad to lose you guys as neighbors! But I know it will be good for you guys - it is a great time to buy! But still, sad for me! I hope everything goes well! Good luck! I guess it's good we will still have our blogs to keep in touch. But we will miss you a TON!

That is so exciting! I can't imagine you would want to sell it with all the work you put into it! Amazing. Those new home-owners are L-U-C-K-Y!

Whoever gets your home will be lucky. You have put a lot of work into it. When we came to get rocks yesterday I was admiring your beautiful yard. It's so nice, I wish that our yard were that big.
I was not attached to our first home, or at least I thought that I wasn't, but I had a little breakdown as I made the final walk-through before locking the door for the last time. It's not really the house, but all of the memories that are made in the house and we had a lot of happy memories there. But, when the time is right to move on, ya gotta do it.

I can't believe it! I just popped onto your blog to catch up and you are: selling your house, have a new car, and still feeding your daughter dog food. We have GOT to get together! I'll be thinking of you- good luck with everything!
