It’s official! We are moving at the end of the month. And I didn’t break anything on closing day! When we bought our first house, we drove over to the house to soak up the “new homeowners” excitement, and I stepped in a hole in the backyard and broke my ankle. The very same day we bought the house! Yes, moving was not easy.
When we bought our house back in 2013, we always said it was going to be a 5 year house. We’d stay 5 years and then we would move again to something more long term. February 28th will be exactly 5 years since we bought our current house. The timing worked out perfectly. We have been looking for the ‘perfect’ house for many, many months and I’m so happy we finally found it!
We will begin moving in after we get back from Disney World! We are going to the 2018 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration! The celebration will take place February 20-26 and includes a 3-night stay at the Walt Disney World Resort and a 3-night voyage aboard the Disney Dream.
Our girls still have NO IDEA we are going to Disney. We are planning to surprise them with a scavenger hunt at the new house the day before we leave. You can see pictures from our previous Disney Social Media Moms Celebration here.
We plan to stay in the new house until our girls are grown and out of the house. We aren’t moving very far from our current house, but the girls will be switching schools and the lot itself is much larger than the house we’re in now.
Plus we found out that our new neighbors next to us and across from us have girls about the same age as our girls so they are excited to make some new friends. It has the basement that my husband has always wanted. He’s determined to have a home theater. We are also planning on building out a basement apartment area for my mother in law to live in. Huge thanks to James (our realtor) who has been such a big help with the entire process.
