that's right folks. we are officially homeowners! we ended up living with my parents for just at a year. we finally closed on our first home in September. We LOVE having a house of our own. It's four bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, big fenced in backyard. We live in a swim/tennis community, we are close to all the things we love and are only about three miles from my parents. We could NOT have gotten a better deal on this property, so to all you utahans, MOVE TO GEORGIA!! Our mortgage here, is close to what we paid for RENT in utah. It's WONDERFUL.
There are a few things we don't LOVE about it, but I have the most amazing handyman husband EVER! :) We will painting the cabinets something OTHER than black. We have started painting the walls, put up wainscot, tiled the fireplace and built a new mantel, put in built in cabinets, gave all the windows a new face lift with new sills and molding, and we have just started with the crown molding... wait. I say "we" like I helped, but let it be known it has been ALL jace. Everything is looking amazing and I don't mind living in a construction zone AT ALL! (Pics of the remodel coming soon.)
I just want to give a shout out to my amazing parents for putting up with our family for a WHOLE year. They were so patient with our kids, so giving of their time & space, and so supportive of our decisions. We owe them BIG time and LOVE them more than they could know!
