Our Big Move

This post will be really short. Friday and Saturday are the big move days. Jon thought it would be so smart to start at 5 a.m. Friday and get as much into the house by 10 a.m. YEAH RIGHT!! I am now busting my bottom to get everything packed and ready by tomorrow morning. I hate moving. I told Jon I am not moving for quite awhile. It stresses me out!!

Remembering The Good Ole' High School Days

Ok I wanted to start this tag that I got from a friend. I hope all my high school friends do this to show our true high school pride!! GO HAWKS!!

1. If you could go back and tell your teenage self one thing, what would it be? To know that guys aren't worth your time then. I would tell myself to go live your life and not have stupid boys control it.

2. Did you do any extra curricular activities in high school? Flirting

3. What did you do with your free time? I played with my friends ALL the time. I loved those carefree days.

4. Coolest thing you did as a teenager. mooned people ALOT (ha ha)... well thats not the coolest but maybe the dumbest.

5. Did you have a boyfriend in high school? I flirted with alot of boys and dated lots. I had one serious boyfriend my senior year named, "Gooch" aka Ryan.

6. Songs that come to mind: "Who Let The Dogs Out?" by Baha Men "Oops I Did It Again" by the infamous Britney Spears "Bye Bye Bye" by NSYNC "Lets Make Love" by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill "Whenever.. Wherever" by Shakira and "I'd Do Anything" by Simple Plan. I do remember though from the year we graduated Kelly Clarkson won American Idol and her popular song, "A Moment Like This" was huge!

7. If you could change one thing, what would it be? I wish I would've have expanded my friend bubble and made friends with LOTS of people in my graduating class. I did come from the biggest graduating class in the state of Utah so I have to remember it is hard to know everyone.

8. What did you think you would be when you grew up?I always have wanted to be a teacher... Now I am one!!

9. Picture of self - Sorry I don't have one with me right now. I will tell you though that in high school I looked the same as I do now, but with long hair to my lower back.

10.Craziest thing you did in high school. Well I was actually a pretty good girl except with boys. But I think my friends and I did stupid things once in awhile that we still laugh about. I think my favorite night was when we went and put that Christmas tree on top of Durf's house. That night will live forever!!

My Messy Life

I cannot believe that we are moving in only 9 days. April 26th is our big moving date!! We are so excited and we will be very happy to get into this house and get uncluttered ( atleast I would be). Our landlord informed us last week we were to be out last Saturday and so I paniced and in two days I packed pretty much my entire house excluding the kitchen and our closet. He called a couple days before our expected move out day and made us aware that we wouldn't have to move until the 26th. Oh man what a breath of good news that was. We were going to have to move in with my in laws and I just know what craziness that would've caused. So now since then and for the next week or so we are living in complete chaos. Our house is torn apart, some in boxes, and I have given up. Why clean and tidy the place when it is partly in box and will be moved and cleaned in a week? I am one to not handle messes very easy and so I have had to just close my eyes and keep telling myself to just ignore the chaotic home I am living in. So please no one come over to my house. JUST STAY AWAY!! Okay.... Fine you can come by but please close your eyes!

Okay lets try this again!

Well, as many of you know we were moving into a great home but it fell through because of the poor inspection and appraisal we got back on it. Well we kept on our adventure to find the perfect place for Jon and I. Well, we found it!! The sale of this house is pending and like the other one I am not going to get my hopes up. Yes, I hope it all goes through because this new home we found is even better!! We are set to close on this house on April 22nd. We are very excited to have found something as wonderful as the one we found. We now know that the other house fell through because it wasn't the right house and we found something even better!!

Our home is located in Power Ranch (if you are familar with Arizona) which is located in south east Gilbert off Power Road and Germann. It is 2600 square feet and has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. This house is just perfect. We went out looking the Saturday after the bad news of the prior house hit us and we were walking through home after home getting very tired. I was suppose to be leaving Jon and the realtor to run to my cousin's baptism but Jon said lets pick one more from the pile and go look at it quick. I literally picked a listing from the pile without even choosing and that was the one! We went through it fast and it was so weird because we knew right then it was the one. It fell into our hands and worked out cause it was a banked own foreclosure and they are asking a lot lower than the home is worth.

We are very excited and we are still trying to decide the exact move in date. As I said below our closing date is Tuesday April 22nd but we are having it painted shortly after that and they told us 3 to 4 days to paint. Which would put us to Saturday or Sunday. I would love to move on Saturday the 26th but we might be pushed to the following weekend.
