Whew…what a week.

January 30, 2017 12 comments

This past week has been crazier than usual for us….and that’s an understatement.

Everyday I would trek up to Costa Mesa after I dropped Remi off at her TK school, and have exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes to look at houses/schools before I would have to race back down to San Clemente to pick both girls back up.

We found one house we loved. Like, lovvvvvved, loved. There were already three applications in for it when we applied as well, (we found out early on in our search that people would offer more than the asking price to get one up on all other applicants–this is something we decided we wouldn’t do for just a rental property) so we didn’t think we would get it.

After 3 more days of searching and coming home, honestly, quite disheartened each day, I got the call that the house I loved was ours if we wanted it….I was SHOCKED! I really didn’t think we would get it. I was prepping for a month (or longer) of a grueling search, and this was only the first week–I am so happy and relieved, I really can’t even explain.

There was a catch, though…it’s ready for move in now. Like, right now.

So, we started packing like maniacs.

Everything feels a bit like a blur…it’s all happening so fast. We leave for my brother-in-laws wedding in Utah this week, then come back home for one week, then move.

Does this seem fast to you , too? It feels fast.

BUT! I’m deciding it’s best this way, because that in limbo, unsettled feeling sucks. This way, it’s a bit like ripping off a bandaid quickly…Less painful.

Anyway, that’s that.

As for now I’m living in a land of boxes, clutter, and half finished to-do’s…But I really can’t wait to show you our new spot.

I have to say, your family is the cutest! As a side note, I met Dallas Christensen way back in 2007 or something at CSU with my good friends Ashley and Jason Sandry. Dallas stayed at my apartment for the week. We all listened to Tom Petty and had a good ole time. Super coincidence! Haha! You’re the raddest! Sending good vibes to you and yours!
