Holy Guacamole WE OWN A HOUSE

C and I knew moving out here that we wanted to buy a home, and relatively soon. With the wedding coming up in October, it would be easier all around to have the house situation settled down before that got too close.

We'd been looking online quite a bit, and went out with a realtor the first weekend we were in Gilbert. By that Monday, we were making an offer - the house was one of many of the same floor plan for sale in the neighborhood, but it was ABSOLUTELY the nicest inside and we didn't want to lose out on it.

Part of our goal in life is to never have to move again after this - both of us have pretty strong "anti-schlep" policies about our lives, and moving is definitely the biggest schlep of them all. So, we were looking at houses that could house future potential children (no, not yet, no one freak out yet), and in the mean time all the family and friends that we have basically at once.

Well, today, just about one month later, we closed on that house! It's ours! We own it! Who let us grow up so fast?!? Aren't we still the 17 & 18 year olds we were when we first met (ok I guess being older than 17 & 18 has it's benefits)???

Hi hello this is us and our house!

We're moving in this weekend - the truck and movers are booked and C's storage units will be delivered! Granted, we will need to still buy some (ok maybe a lot) of furniture to fill the many new rooms we now have (including, as I described it to C, the "Christmas Tree Room").  But, we have a decent start considering we used to both have our own places.

So, now, as of May 27, 2015, we are home owners. We have a lovely (large) home in Gilbert, Arizona and everyone is invited to visit us whenever they want. So really, come to Gilbert, we would love to have you :)
