Finally!


So yesterday Derek and I finally signed the contract for our new place. I am so excited. I don't even care that it's further away from BYU and work. It's like an extra 5-10 minutes depending on traffic. So worth it. Can't wait to leave Cambridge Court. It has been one of the worst places I have ever lived. Some of you may know about the issues we had this summer with some lovely bugs. I will spare you the details because I don't think you really want to know and I don't like to retell it because then I have to relive it. 

Ok so here are the great things about getting to move:
  • 150 more square feet
  • 2 bedrooms
  • Washer and dryer
  • New carpet and tile floor
  • New furnace
  • Updated bathroom
  • Located in a 4-plex (Only 3 neighbors is a bonus)
  • Trash only comes once a week
  • Great Landlord
The downsides:
  • We finally made friends in our current place. We have dinners and game nights with them all so we'll just have to continue after we move.
  • No covered parking 
  • More money but for what we get we feel it's fair
So we officially get to move in to our new place on December 9th and hopefully be out of our other contract on December 14th. Thankfully, if everything works out, we are only double paying for a week of time.

I am also excited to move in before Christmas so that we actually have a couple weeks to have a Christmas tree and decorations up.

Everything really fell into place for this move. Nothing was working out at any other place we had looked at. We feel so blessed to have a great place to move in to. There were many other applications submitted but the landlord really liked us so he bypassed everyone else and selected ours. I'll post pictures as soon as we move in.

  6. I didn't know you guys had a blog! I'm glad I found it. :) This post makes me sad and happy. I'm sad you guys are moving, but I'm happy you found a good place. I'm also sad because I'm slightly jealous of your new abode... :\ I'm sorry things were so poopy for you guys here. We definitely need to still hang out once you guys move. Let me know if there's anything we can do to help with packing and whatnot!
