Moving Right Along

Well, it's official! We have a house! 

On Friday as we were driving to Florida, our friend at Leavenworth got called that there was a home available for her to look at for us. She headed over to the house and we linked up on Facebook video chat so we could see it. We had heard that there were a few homes in this neighborhood that had hardwood floor, as soon as she opened the door we could see that this was one. 

She walked us through the whole thing and it's beautiful!!! It is 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, with a partially finished basement, tons of closets/storage, and a fenced in backyard. Once we said yes, she headed back to housing and they told her they would email the documents to us so we could sign them. We virtually signed everything, paid the deposit, and everything was good to go! I received copies of our documents yesterday and they processed the payment. Woo hoo! We are so so grateful to our friend who was willing to do this for us. I hope I can return the favor for someone in the future.

This our new home and I couldn't be more excited!


Of course now that we have an address, it means ordering moving announcements. This is something that I always look forward to doing. I chose these ones, they are postcards which is awesome. Vistaprint never disappoints with their selection. I also ordered Emma and Fishy their new tags so I can switch them out once we arrive.


I can't believe that we are about 13 days away from moving! We have family photos scheduled for this weekend and then movers arrive on Monday! Time has flown by that's for sure. We went to a BBQ yesterday with Kyle's intel team and they did a little impromptu farewell for those who are leaving. It was nice to say goodbye to everyone.

Here is to making the most of our time left in Louisiana!

  11. I love that you got a house already! We have never had a place set up before we arrived to a new location. I would love to have it set up to avoid staying a hotel and waiting, and to get things done like change your address. I'm so excited for you!!

  17. That is SO exciting! We're in such limbo right now, since Ryan's deployed, and he just dropped his packet for 160th. Our fingers are crossed for fun things ahead for us, too! <3

  21. Amazing technology that allows live video so many miles away. Looks like a nice house. It's on base? So happy for you and enjoy what's left of your time in Louisiana. We just got home from a trip to the coast for a few days. So fun. Now I need to unpack my clothes etc. Thankful to have Phil bring in 2 suitcases. Have a good weekend.
