Since my last post, we have found and pre-leased a new place! It's not a rental house or a townhouse -- like I originally set out to find -- but, it's a larger apartment in a great complex! Again, Brian's voice of reason reigned me in. I could not find a house that would fit into our budget, or if it did, I didn't like the feeling the landlords gave me via the phone conversations I had with them. He suggested I look at some complexes "just to see." :)
We will have a much larger apartment: 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath. 1200 square feet instead of our less than 900 in our current 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath. It will be so nice to have a little extra space! Brian will have an actual office with a door that closes, and I won't be in his way when I'm home on school breaks.
The complex sits on 64 acres of land. There are nice wooded areas, open fields, and walking trails throughout the complex. It's close by, so my commute to work won't change terribly; and we'll still be close to the stores we frequent.
Our move day isn't until the end of May, but I have already started packing and flipped into hyper-planning mode. I enjoy organizing and planning (I'm a weirdo, I know), so it's exciting and fun! I have been pinning lots of things on Pinterest for the new place. Many that probably will never get done, but are nice to think about! I am enjoying online window shopping for new furniture and have already drawn out tentative furniture arrangements...
I'm excited about our next
