Homeowners

It's official! We signed papers, escrow closed, and our loan funded. We are now the proud owners of one charming San Diego home. But not just any home - OUR home! That's right, we don't have to move! We convinced our landlord/real estate agent to sell the home to us and the price was right and we've narrowly escaped the sellers market that is consuming our area now. We are so happy, relieved, excited, etc. We have so many plans for this house and it has so much potential to offer us. We love San Diego, we love our ward family, our friends. We're just ecstatic. The boys are thrilled to be able to call the house ours instead of V's. :D I hope we see her around, though. She's the coolest. Every time I would see her, she would hand over a huge pile of kids' toys, books, and games for the boys. She is so generous and just plain wonderful!

So, without further adieu, I give you . . . The Bagel Factory. Ta da!!

Congrats!! That is very exciting. I wish we could afford to live in CA. I love a lot of things about CA, but there are a lot of things that I don't like too. Glad things are working out for you.
