FINALLY...we found a house!
Seth and I have been searching for a house either to build/buy for months! It has been seriously so frustrating, and we had almost given up hope on finding one, much less before little Paisley comes into our lives. However, by some miracle we have found a house that will be ready for us to move into before she gets here! We were out driving around one day and noticed a neighborhood being built in north Provo (kind of behind the Walmart in Orem for those of you who know where that is). We drove in and noticed a sign with a number on it which we called to set up an appointment to walk through a house in the development. By this point, we were not very optimistic, but figured we might as well give it a shot. When we walked through the framed house we loved it and loved the price and included upgrades even more. I asked the guy when we could move in expecting him to tell me November or December, but he surprised me and told me he this particular house was scheduled to be done in a month! I was sold. Then, we went the same day and picked out all of the colors and such and wrote out a check, and voila! We have a house :)It is going to be three stories, but the basement is unfinished. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs and 2.5 baths and in the basement we will eventually add 2 more bedrooms, a bathroom and a huge rec room. It has a pretty big backyard which we are excited to use for many cookouts to come next summer. It's also in a cul-de-sac which I really like. It's going to be iron grey hardyboard siding with white accents, and the inside will be tiled and carpeted with granite counter tops. Although I am probably most excited about the huge walk in closet and separate tub and shower because for those of you who know me I am an avid bubble bather :) We are so excited to have finally found a home where we can raise our little girl and are feeling BLESSED beyond belief. P.s. Pictures to come soon... P.p.s. Come September anyone who is able and willing to help us move would be greatly appreciated considering I will be ready to pop at any moment and will unlikely be any help :)
