We did it.

It's sort of a long story and I still don't have time to write it. But we ended up buying this house this weekend. AHHHH!! The longest part of the story is that we're not sure it's the right house. We've known for a while that we wanted more space, but this UnAuction DR Horton was having forced us into making the decision a bit quicker than planned. The prices were pretty amazing on two different houses that we loved. Two different neighborhoods but same builder- same sale. So we're in the process of figuring out if this house is going to stick, or if we're going to rescind, and do the process all over again this weekend and fight for a different house. Sigh. The most exciting and exhausting thing we've done in a while. It's sort of a big decision, buying a house. Turns out I don't really do so well with big decisions. Wish us luck!

WOW LILLIE, That is crazy HUGE!!! A big congratulations from us. The girls could totally have their own bedrooms to decorate all cute, and you will still have room to spare. Good luck choosing the right one. You know that I would totally encourage you to stay in our Ward. :) I am really not good at the big decisions either. I stew over all of the little details, but what a completely FUN big decision to have to make.

You guys are on house number two already and we're still living with the in-laws...hhmmmm. Maybe WE should move to the desert. ;) Good luck you guys!

Yay! How exciting! That house is very cute, too, you guys have good taste. We've bought three houses in the last two years, and it still never loses it's excitement! Keep us updated with lots of pictures.

I love it if that is any consolation. Congrats on the big decision.

What a beautiful house! So excited for you guys. More space is always nice with the kiddos.

Have you sold your house?

Lil, wow!!! How are you and Missy on your SECOND homes? I'm still a renter living in a sorority house. This house is beautiful - I agree, love the door and the detail by the windows... and mostly little Sophia walking down the driveway. Tell us what you decide, but how exciting in the meantime!! (can't wait to have a sleepover there!!)

craziness!! I hope it works out. keep your stress level down, if that's possible. eating cupcakes does the trick for me, so you're in luck with that one at least. :)

Crazy, which neighborhood is it? I love DR Horton, we just went and looked some out here, the prices are amazing.

The outside IS very fun! Minus the desert lawn :) Love the arches and the little holes and the window thingers and the shutters. Looks like there is a ton of light inside too!! :)
