I am in love!!!!!!!

First of all, this is the third post in 3 days which is pretty good for me. I just have a lot to blog about I guess. I actually made dinner tonight. Totally surprised Jon and my little brother and I guess myself because I enjoyed doing it. Ramsey named dinner "hamburger burrito with cheese and sauce" otherwise known as Enchiladas :) hahaha Here is what he thinks about it. He is just being funny. He loved it!

So back to the title of my blog. I am totally in love and Jon and I are finally doing something we have wanted to do in a long time. Buying a house. I found it online a few days ago. We weren't even thinking about doing this yet, but it is an offer you can't pass up. We went to look inside tonight thinking that it was built in 1930 and probably has a lot of work that is needed. Notice the yard is pretty much in shambles, but the outside is great other than a cracked window in front. We walked in and all of us were shocked. The whole entire house had been remodeled. It is so cute. I love the old charm with the new updates. Wrap-around porch...high ceilings... awesome trim and moldings...A/C (That is a huge positive for an older home) It has 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. (3 upstairs and master on main floor) and there is even a little rock basement that you access from outside for Jon's "man cave." It has a pretty good size yard for JT and it is just plain cute. So we are going to put an offer on it in the next few days and cross our fingers that everything will go well. We are ready for a place of our own and this house just feels right. :) So here is my new love. I will post an update as soon as I know anything. For now I hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July. We are heading up north for Stadium of Fire and to spend time with Jon's family. Have fun and stay safe :)

I love that house! We looked at it before we bought our current house. It was re-modeled by someone who went to high school with us. You are going to be in my sister's ward. They will love you, and you'll have nice neighbors, too. I hope it goes through smoothly for you!
