Bitter Sweet...


Well today our house (203) OFFICIALLY SOLD.
When we get home there will be a SOLD sign to replace the C/S (conditionally sold).
And for me that is a little bitter sweet.
{Trust me I am SO thankful it sold so quickly and I am happy we sold it to newlyweds who love it as much as we do.}

But this was our first home together.
We have lived in it almost 5 years.

(house warming party)

My first time living somewhere other than my parents house.
We slept on a single futon in the living room for 3 weeks waiting for our mattress to come in.

We got engaged while living in 203.

(engagement party)

We planned a wedding and got married while living here.

We had some pretty fun and often (at times) crazy parties in 203.

(Golf Pros and Tennis Hoes Party)

We hosted Christmas dessert nights.

We have approx. 867 photos of Blake & Justin posing in this house. 

We brought Cruzie home to this house.
She peed on the carpet about 500 times in this house - don't tell the buyers!

We had many a game nights with our closest friends.

We hosted New Years Eve twice.

We posed in front of the fire place every Christmas Party we went to! :)

We had Logan and her beautiful kids come stay with us many times in 203.

We had impromptu dance parties.

Justin built a garage.

We babysat Emerson here numerous times.

Lily claims the spare room as her own in 203.

And as of the end of November another couple will be making memories in this home and that is ok with me because wehave so so so many memories in this place it is unbelievable.

Today we are going back to look at the 2 homes that have been on our mind this week.
One more so than the other... :) I pretty much have ants in my pants.
But no matter what happens today, I know we will find 'the perfect' home for us.
A new place to make memories, host family and friends and make it our Home Sweet Home.

Happy Friday everyone.

And Happy Turkey weekend to all my Canadian readers.
