It's true what they say...

Everything DOES happen for a reason!  As you know, we sold our house and close May 30th.  Last time I wrote we had recently found an amazing house, put an offer in, and missed out on it by a day.  Last Friday we went to look at a house that had very few pictures online, which is always a bad sign I think.  When we got there, we found out it was a foreclosure and it was completely trashed.  We didn't even look at the whole house because it was that disgusting.  We didn't want the kids in there.  So we left that house on Friday and told our realtor we were taking the weekend off of house stuff and were going to regroup on Monday.  It had been a stressful week and we needed a little break.

Then we got an email from our realtor at 6:07 AM on Saturday with the subject "CALL ME, CALL ME, CALL ME!!!"  The email said that the deal fell through for the house we loved.  I thought I was dreaming to be honest.  So much for our weekend off of no house talk!  But it was SO worth it.  Long story short - we put a new offer in and they accepted!

We have a house!  We close on that May 30th too!  We have officially started packing and our house is now in shambles.  I'm still not sure how the moving is going to go since we have to be out of our house that Friday morning before closing and can't be in the new house until Friday afternoon after the closings.  So we will be living out of a huge truck (assuming our whole house of stuff will fit in a truck) for a day.  But we will figure it all out!

We are so excited and now these next 40 days need to speed up!  We can't wait to get in our new house.  There are definitely some things we'd like to do to it.  It's not perfect, but it's pretty awesome :)

I have started a list of things we need to buy, want to buy, and little projects I want to do.  It will be fun!  Anyway, just wanted to update you all.  As much as I hated Tyler saying "Everything will be fine, it will work itself out," I have to admit, he was right.  I'm the worrier of the family, that's for sure!

Hope you all have a great Easter!  I went shopping for the kids' baskets tonight and can't wait for Sunday morning!
