I just wanted you all to know how much we appreciated your well wishes last week on finding a home. I’m happy to say we are no longer living out of an extended stay hotel!
Once we arrived here in El Paso last week, we immediately felt at home. I’m guessing it had something to do with the dryer air, the addition of Jack in Boxes/the absence of Waffle Houses everywhere, and the sight of these beautiful mountains!
Once we did our little happy dance over the fact that we weren’t living in humidity, we immediately hit the road to hunt for houses.
Due to a long waiting list for homes on Fort Bliss and the lack of decent rentals here we opted to check out the homes for sale instead.
Yup, we went house shopping!
After two days of looking at newly built homes and re-sell homes we finally agreed on one that will be perfect for us. We put in the contract and now we wait until everything closes!
This is not the house we picked, but definitely one of my favs.
We are buying our first home! I can’t even believe it.
Here is a sneak peak at the master bathroom in our new house. One of the only pictures I managed to snap during our epic house hunting adventure.
As we sit and wait for at least 45 days until closing, we found ourselves a cute little furnished apartment that offers a short term lease.
We are literally camping in our own temporary home now. We have whatever items we managed to fit in our cars (just the basics: bed sheets, pillows, one pan, two spatulas, 2 mugs, a coffee pot, three towels) as the rest of our stuff stays in storage until we move into our real house.
Again, I’m a happy camper as I have everything I need. A nice comfy couch to sit on, internet access and my husband close by. 🙂
I have quite the week of exciting things happening over here. Check back tomorrow for a sweet giveaway you won’t want to miss!
