IN ESCROW BABY!!!!!




We are so excited! We are getting a house!!!!! We've been looking a little here and there but nothing serious. Especially with the prices the way they are here in California. But one just kinda fell into our lap. So, we found the perfect house for us (not to mention we got a killer deal). With that being said...it needs love. It is a bank repo and the previous owners took NO PRIDE in it. We are so excited to fix it up and make it ours. It is in a great neighborhood, truly this house is a "diamond in the rough". The paint is so ugly, I can not wait to paint to our liking. The floor is disgusting, we (romney) are going to install wood flooring. The kitchen faucet is busted, the tub leaks and did I mention that there is a doggy door in the middle of the living room wall? Yes a doggy door in the wall not in a door, but in the middle of the WALL. So there will be some patching up too. It is so fun picking and choosing what we want to do. We are so excited about this and can not wait. Oh, and the perk...its around the corner from my parents house, litterly. SO fun!!!!!! SOOOO here's to ESCROW!!!

Hi Erin! Thanks for sending me a comment and congratulations on your new home. That is really exciting! We should get together sometime or at least have you guys over. My kids are asleep by 7:30 so it would be fun to have you over after they are all asleep...the best time of the day.

Hi Erin! It's so great to see your family blog. It's so funny I was looking at our friends Tanya and Tyler's blog and saw you there!! It is a small world in the mormon community isn't it! They are great people you will have fun getting to know them and I know Tyler will do a great job with your house!! Well feel free to peek in on the Davis family, we're doing great! Glad to see you guys are doing well and CONGRATS ON THE HOUSE!!

loubige said...

Hey Erin! Congratz! And I LOVE the new background, very cute and fun just like you!!! Ahhhh.....
Hey, check your junk mail--I just sent you an email and HOTMAIL apparently hates me, I always get sent to their junk mail for some reason.

SHIRLEY'S said...

WOW!! thats so exciting! thats great! cant wait to see this doggy door in the middle of a wall... thats just crazy... maybe it was a dog that was blind and only knew that spot... Just trying to justify it... but cant... Hope things go well. you'll have to post a before picture, and then after pictures! we just put an offer on a house yesterday and should find out tomorrow whether or not we got it.

Steve and Jaclyn said...

Hey! I am not sure if you remember me, but this is Jaclyn Bitz. I am good friends with Ryan Wilcox. It is awesome to see your blog! I wondered where you ended up? Congrats on your new house!

Griffeths said...

Well as of last Thurs I was not dialated, but that was five days ago. I am having tons of braxton hicks. But no real ones. BOOOOOO!!! I don't know what I will do if I go over. Meg went 10 days over with david.

Trevor and Marie said...

Congrats on the new house, good luck with escrow!!! If you need any help Trevor will be there LOL jk We will be there.
I have another bottle for you at my moms house, so the next time you think about it, its there for you!!!

jorgstyle said...

Holy freaking comments batman! We got your loan docs today, so you're almost ready for the next post on your blog, "Holy crap we're homeowners".

JonandLo said...

yes, we are still on for friday! but what about a girls night...i forgot Fatty will be in town that weekend so we could do something the three of us? Do you work on Friday? Could u come down for the day even?

Shannon said...

I'm thinking about your floors. If you don't love the dark ones it might be worth it to splurge on the light ones. I think it would bug me if I didn't love the floors I picked. It effects everything else you bring into the house. Good luck deciding.

Lyndzee Ellsworth said...

How is that going? I havent talked with you in a while. 29 comments???? Wow, you are one popular blogger my sister!

Alison said...

The 20% comes off at checkout. The sale goes through the 21st. I think that is Sunday. =) I didn't order yet..

Griffeths said...

So when are we going to see some real pictures of your new house?

The three of us said...

Yeah, I really need to update, but I'm sooo not in the mood lately!! lol!! I'm sick and it's poopy and needs to stop. I can't wait to see pictures!! I'm sure it's not the "ugliest" house ever. And hey...it's a house that is YOURS!! That's all that matters :)
