Well...Eric and I are going to look at a house tomorrow. It is really scary to think that this is where we are at in life. It is a huge commitment since we are debt free! We really do like it here, and he has a good steady job and so do I so that is a huge blessing. A family in our ward is moving...and wants to try to sell without listing their house. I hope that it is nice...I know it is a fixer-upper, that is what makes this all so hard! Do we build and get what we want and wait to finish a basement...and build equity that way? Do we rent and pay like $1600/mo? Do we buy pre-existing and hope and pray that it is fixable in our budget? Everything is still pretty high priced here! People think I am crazy when I tell them that this home is 3000 sq. ft., but seriously...it is one of the better deals for our price range. Most homes around 250-300k are either new and super tiny, or big and old. This one happens to fall into the latter category...but it also has about 3 acres which would be nice I suppose. I am just ready to feel settled in one place. To feel like we can start a family because we are not moving soon (I guess moving like 9 times in a year and a half can do that to you). I guess I am finally feeling like putting roots down, color on my walls, and money in my own pocket (kind of...at least its not being given to someone else to put into their pockets). Anyways, I will update when I know more!!
In May of 2005 I married my husband Eric, and eternally banished the Murphy's Law curse. We met at Idaho State University in an Institute class, he was a recent transfer from a private college where he was playing basketball. We have begun our real life in the mountains of Wyoming, where Eric is a High School PE teacher/Head Basketball coach/Head Track coach, and I work in Special Education with K-1 kiddos. We love to travel, be with our family and friends, be involved with sports, and the outdoors. Eric loves to hunt, fish, play ball, design antler art, and workout. I love to do creative things like scrapbooking, crafting, decorating, and doing photography (as shown by my other blog). Hands down though, I am a total scrapbook junky!! We have a love for life and for eachother that has withstood a lot in the few years we have been married, but we know that the lord only puts in our path what we can handle and so with faith we keep on going. Through this crazy life we're just trying to enjoying it as it comes, we hope to continually make amazing memories that will get us through the hard times and keep us moving forward.
