Condo-Mondo!


Big News: As of this week, we are officially home owners! Thursday night we closed on a great condo in North Orem. We are SO excited to be getting our own place. We love the complex and its great location! Not to mention, we're excited to be staying in one place for more than six months! The plan is to live in the condo until we head off to graduate school, and then we'll hang on to it as an investment property.

Right now, we're set to move in December 1st. We're doing a big round of home renovations before we move in. The condo is in great shape, but we have some things in mind to make it a little more 'home sweet home'. And we've had a blast doing "grown up stuff" like picking out new appliances, shopping for paint colors (no more white walls!), new fixtures and flooring. We're got some great plans for the place and I think its going to turn out fabulous! The not-so-fun part has been haggling with realtors and dealing with the ridiculous utah county real estate market! It's been a long month and a half, but it's all been worth it in the end.

So, no pictures to post yet. But I'll definitely be giving lots of updates over the next month and pictures will be posted once we are completely settled and decorated. At that point, you are all welcome to come pay us a visit!
