We Bought A House!!!!!

Click for more pictures ...

We just bought this house! Its on Chancellor Dr, which is in Woodmen Point, near Woodmen and Austin Bluffs. It was only on the market for one day and we had to race 6 other people to get our offer in first. I couldn't sleep until after midnight last night and I pretty much held my breath all day. I didn't really think we would get it, I was pretty shocked when our realtor told us the news this afternoon. Unfortunately it is just barely out of the 9th ward boundaries. But it is in District 20, and that all we could ask for with a house like this!!!

Its about 3500 square feet, with an unfinished walk-out basement, so its about 2500 finished square feet, built in 2006. It was a bank owned foreclosure, I can't believe the last people lost it after putting so much money into it. Very sad for who ever they are. It needs appliances and landscaping but I never thought we could afford such an amazing house. The upper level has all four bedrooms and the washer and dryer hook-ups (which I am so excited about, I HATE dragging laundry up and down stairs). Plus there's an office on the main level. We absolutely love it!

OH MY GOODNESS! Congratulations! I am so happy for you. It looks absolutely beautiful, and will be such a great home for your family! I wish you could have been in our ward, but I am so glad you got to stay in D-20, and you can always keep coming to our playgroup. What ward is it in? I know a handful of people in 10th. That is just fabulous. I am SOOOOO happy for you! Congratulations again!

Congratulations!! I am so jealous! It looks beautiful. Be sure to post some pictures when you move. Also, I still play NUTS and always think of my roommies when I do. Aww, those were the days, weren't they? My sisters and I always play when we get together. It is way too fun. And I don't stay so thin. You are too funny! I still LOVE snickers but have given up the Coke a long time ago. I spend many, many hours on the treadmill and in the weight room. You are sweet, but I've still got about 20 lbs. to lose from having Emma. And she's almost 6 months old! Yikes, I better get working, although I workout everyday, I think that 30 year old curse is working its evilness on me. Oh well, what are you going to do? Okay, this is a novel, sorry, just wanted to chat for a minute about some of the things you left on my blog! Congrats on the house. That is SO very exciting!!

You are living right by Prairie Hills Elementary! That is the school Dallin attends and we've loved it. And, the 10th ward, I've heard, is wonderful, too. But, we'll miss you in our ward, for sure. Glad you aren't going far, though!
