WE ARE OFFICIALLY HOMEOWNERS!!!



OKAY. I've written and re-written this entry several times. I guess blogging takes practice and I'm a bit rusty. :)

But, after a month of not posting anything, I'm sure you're all dying to know what happened to us. :) I apologize for not being the blogger of the year, but when things get busy, something's got to go ... I guess my blog was it! We've had a tumultuous month! Let's see... where do I start? Since the beginning of March we've been looking at homes, and we finally found one in Riverton, UT. It couldn't have come at a better time, since Jon's parents decided it was time to kick us out, and staying with my parents for a couple of weeks was TONS of fun. But it's a fabulous rambler with a cute little yard. My favorite part is the walk-in closet!!! Jon's just happy to have a new lawnmower. (It's red... I think it's cute!)

Between packing and unpacking, and running to the store several times to get things we forgot we needed, we're really enjoying being new homeowners. We even planted some flowers in the front yard!


Our ward rocks, our future friends (some people call them neighbors) are pretty nice, and it's less than ten minutes to drive to school. I'm just thrilled to be in our own place that we can call home!

(and a HUGE GINORMOUS thanks to our friends who helped us move: Caity and Bob, Lynae and Tyler and Tyler's brothers, and my dear, darling family!)

It was super fun to help out! I think the boys worked harder. It felt like I just sat there and kept you company and asked you where to put stuff every two minutes.

Oh and I mean I did a good job of rearanging those letters! I think we learned a valuable lesson that night. Bonnie please remember that when your family becomes all about "MY" it will "FAIL" and then what does that spell? That's right "My Fail" :)

I laugh so hard whenever we hang out!

So exciting! I'm so jealous that you can plant flowers and mow a lawn! Now you need a dog.

Bonnie said...

Amen Molly! We're dog shopping right now... but I don't think we could get a great dane. We'll leave that one up to you!

You guys are spoiled rotten! Your house looks great and I'd love to give myself an uninvited tour (how about around June 28th or 29th?That's the next time we will be in Utah). I am jealous you have a house already since we just got our first one after 6 1/2 years of marriage, 4 college degrees (3 for Paul, one for me) and 3 3/4 kids. By the way, my vote is no dogs--just kids!
