guess what....?!

we just got back in town from the wedding, and it was AMAZING. and deserves it's own post... but i just had to share some amazing news.

nicholas and i have been looking for a new home for the last month or so... with lots of viewings, but never found anything we loved. lots of places were missing the washer/dryer... or they had the washer/dryer, but no garage or storage. or, no place for our dining table... or something.

well last saturday, we found a listing for a darling 3 bedroom house in san jose. it was updated and had a garage and washer/dryer and central air conditioning/heat and a dining room and it's so cute! (yes, all of those things seem given when you're from texas... but that's not always the case here!) they were having an open house from 1-4pm... and when nicholas and i arrived at 2pm, there were already 6 strong applications in... per the property manger. not good.

we fell in love with it! we submitted our application, complete with a personal bio, and said a prayer.

as we were driving up to portland on wednesday, we got the call...


we'll be moving next saturday!
the house is ours!!!! :)

here are a couple of pictures from the listing of one of the bedrooms and the back arbor:



needless to say, nicholas and I are going to have a busy week of packing! 
ahhhh, i am so thrilled we'll be in our new home just before our first anniversary.
