First of all, I had a baby. Duh. That is obviously a huge life change. I posted about the first few weeks and the first 3 months already, so I won't go into that a ton. In summary - a HUGE change in the BEST kind of way.
Next, the house. Eric started a new job in January in OKC, which means that he has been spending a significant amount of time commuting. Because of traffic, it takes him about 45min both ways to get to work. He really loves his job, but the constant driving in crazy traffic has been annoying. Combine that with the fact that our house is starting to feel cramped (2 beds, 1 bath, huge dog) - we decided to move. We actually sold our house in February, kind of by accident. Short story: we listed on the "make me move" option on Zillow and it had a full price offer the next day. Suuuuuch a huge blessing since cleaning and showing the house over and over with a newborn sounded pretty miserable.
We thought we would find our next house relatively quickly and we had over two months before closing so we weren't worried. BUT it ended up being a pretty intense ordeal. The market is good... so good that the houses we wanted to see would go off the market after one day of listing them (which is what happened to us... we should have known). Anyway, after looking at over 30 houses with our INCREDIBLE realtor (if you're local, I would be happy to recommend her) we finally found one. We put in an offer 2 days after it went on the market and even though it had multiple other offers, we got it!
We are so stinking excited about the new house. Since our house was small, there will be so many things that are new to us that might seem normal to other people - two bathrooms! a garage! a separate bathtub! We can't wait. We are moving in a couple of weeks and I haven't done much packing at all but I'm relatively un-stressed about it.
I'm sure blogging will fall on the back burner for a little while once we move (which made me just now think about the fact that we need to get internet set-up at the new house...). But I'm around! And I am so excited to share the house with you soon!
