Finally! Our home!

Nate and I finally got the key to our new home yesterday. We have been so anxious with this process for the past 3 or 4 weeks, so we are seriously grateful to have it done.

We started packing our apartment up a couple of weeks ago, so we've been in a state of disarray since then, while not being able to use the things that were in the boxes and eating fast food and frozen pizza for the past few days.

But finally last night we were able to start taking some of these boxes over, and tonight with the help of some AWESOME family and friends we will take our heavier items over, with the help of a Uhaul truck.

We will be sleeping in our new place tonight, and I can't wait!

Our new home is still in Orem, and although its a little farther from the freeway and fast food, its even closer to work (at Heritage), and will shorten our drive from about 12 mins, to about 4 mins.

It is in a great area, where everyone seems to take great care of their homes and yards and we've even met a couple of the neighbors who seems super friendly.

We fondly nick named the home the yellow dellow.

The home is on the corner of a quiet culdesac in a quiet neighborhood.

It has a fenced back yard with a big tree in the yard for shade, and a huge storage shed.

we are going to build a fire pit using these big bricks
We will have a two car garage now, so we will no longer have to take turns with the misery of having the cold car in the winter, or scraping off the ice from the windshield. Plus the garage gives us even more storage space.

It has a doggy door from the kitchen to the garage and from the garage to outside, which seems perfectly designed for our pup. Now we just need to teach him to take himself out to tink.

The home has 4 bedrooms, 2 full bath, a family room, a living room, an office, and a laundry room. The home is about 2,100 square feet and we got an awesome price for it too.

Ps. A big shout out to my uncle Lance who was our real estate agent and helped us find and get the home.

Pps. A thank you to my parents for giving us a chunk of money so that we could make our house payments a little cheaper each month.

Ppps. I will post pictures once we have all our furniture in and things unpacked as well.
