Queen Creek Here we Come!

We have a house!!!! We put in an application on Saturday and just found out this afternoon that the house is our's! We will be getting the keys on May 15rh. The house is my dream house!!! The inside looks straight off one of theose TLC remodel TV shows!!! The only bad part is that it is in Queen Creek :( This is NOT where I wanted to love. But that is where the house that we fell in love with is, so that is where we are moving!!!

The house is 3200 square feet, 5 bedrooms, large lofts, 3 bathrooms, formal livingroom, formal dining room, family room, granite counters, stainless steal appliances, tile all downstairs, cherry wood floors upstairs, master suite with sitting room, a mountain view from the back, a fire pit, and 3 community pools! Yay!!!!

Here are a few pics I took on my cell phone...

The kid bath....with granite counters...

My dream kitchen!!!!!

Change is in the air.....

I have lived in Casa Grande for the past 21 years. Scott has lived here for 23. We aren't good with change......but it is time!!!!

We are moving!!!

But since we are not so great with change, we decided it would be best to not move too far away! So we are moving to the Chandler/Gilbert area. It is only 45 minutes away. But so scary!!! We are saying goodbye to our house!!! I love my house! My kids love the house! I thought I was going to die in this house. I thought that because Scott told me so!!!

We do not have a house in Gilbert yet. We will be renting :( I am only 28 and I have already owned 2 houses. Kinda stinks to go back to renting.

Or does it? Owning a house hasn't done us any good or saved us any money! We are so upside down in our mortgage that owning our home is no longer a good investment. Now we will have a house that is about the same size and pay less. That sounds like the way to go for me!!!

Plus we will be closer to Scott work, family, friends, a church community, and so much more. I think we are gonna love it!!!

But first, a house for sale, packing, garage sale, finding a new house, moving, and unpacking!!! Anyone want to sign up to help?! lol

We had a FANTASTIC Easter this year! I think it was our best ever!!! Here are some shots I got real quick as we were heading out the door to church.....Danika...




After church we had an Easter egg hunt.
Then the kids played in the backyard (gorgeous weather!!) with the new toys that the Easter Bunny brought for them. They also helped me make bunny cupcakes and a really cool bunny bread!!!

Then Scott's parents came over for dinner and we had a DELICIOUS ham, scalloped potatoes, asperagus wraps, devilled eggs, veggies, bunny bread, and bunny cupcakes!!! YUM!
Of course I took a million pics......but honestly I shouldn't even be taking the time to post right now! I started 2 new classes today and they have twise the homework of any of my other classes and it is my first time taking2 of them at the same time (3 if you count the photography class at CAC!). But I just wanted to take a moment and share a few pictures of my sweet family on Easter!!
And if I am posting a little less during the next 6 weeks than I usually will know that I am actually doing my homework!
