Signed, sealed, delivered

Yep, we're official. We now are proud owners of two keys and a garage door opener to our new duplex. We'll be moving in ASAP. Good times. It's an older place so definitely not a lot of the bells and whistles of some places (uhem, no dishwasher or AC) but it's a cute place none the less. {happy dance} We'll be in our own place yippee!

All systems go

So far all systems go on the Santa Clara Duplex. We meet with the agent this evening to go over the lease and give our deposit. Woot! This will make the move super easy as we are just moving across the street :) Here is a pic of the outside.

Just waiting to hear if we got the duplex or not. Basically we got it, it's just our lovely managers went out of town without telling us and all the other tenants so the agent is having a hard time getting my rental reference from my current residence. Thankfully I got a hold of the lady covering for them and asked her to pull our rental history and have it ready for when the agent calls in a few minutes...because hello!...we don't want to lose our spot because of one stupid little thing. They are sticklers about credit and good rental history which is why the property is still available. Because let's be honest, $1500 for a 900 sq foot duplex with a garage and washer/dryer hookups is a good deal in Santa Clara in this neighborhood and they have a LOT of interest in it. When I looked at it the agent told me they had a lot of people interested but thus far they either had shady credit, or poor rental history or both. So they were holding out and waiting for someone better... TA-DA!!! Here we are! Fingers crossed.

Blog fart

Ever go to say something and then completely have a brain fart? Well this is my blog fart. Cause I went to write something.....and then BAM...nothing. Blackness. Nada.

Well, in randomness my brother, his wife and kids will be here this weekend for a whole day. Yipee! I finally get to see my newest nephew. Awesome.

Also, I love and hate craigslist. You can get such great things for amazing deals but at the same time I get so sick of every third post being some sort of scam. I am a pro at recognizing them now that so many have tried to scam me. boo

Tay's early bday and the Fair

This was our trip to the ALameda county fair last friday the 3rd. WE had such a fun time. It was BLAZING HOT during the day but cooled off nicely for the concert and fireworks. fun fun fun. I swear I put on 15lbs in one day due to all the fried food I ate

This is the gun I bought for Taylor as an early birthday gift. He's like a little boy on Christmas morning. hee hee
