|The front of the house. The landscaping is GORGEOUS!|
|This is the 4th bedroom, or as I like to call it:|
My Craft Room :)!
|Downstairs. This will be the kids' play area! All to themselves!|
|Still downstairs. There is a built-in desk and bar area...|
this home is beautiful!
|This is the eat-in area in the kitchen that we will use|
for the kids' school area!
|Updated Kitchen overlooking the backyard :)|
|So excited I don't have to give up my gas stove!|
The owner's Son-in-law is the Realtor...he's awesome!

|Gotta love the pink bathroom!!|
When I called the next morning to tell the Realtor we wanted to put in an application, he informed me there were two other applications that he had and he would present ours with the others that afternoon. My anxiety instantly rose...this house had been calling my name and we might not get it! After writing a letter of why we loved the home and who we were and filling out the app, we sent it on. Just a few hours later Fabian called to say congrats! The owners loved the letter and chose us! We felt so incredibly lucky and blessed that they had chosen our application over two others!
We went by today to drop off our deposit check and meet Fabian...he is awesome! He told us more about the family and the area...this place reminds us a lot of Olathe...very suburban with all the shops you love! The town is right at the base of some mountains (the people here call them hills...LOL!) and there is a park down the street! We also found out that there is a national park and golf course just a few miles away in the "Hills"! We signed the lease for 18 months and could not be happier!
Ironically enough, we sold a lot of things in our garage sale, and now we will have to buy furniture to fill the house! I'm still in astonishment at how everything has gone so far.
Oh! Fabian's wife (the owners daughter) is an OB/GYN and can tell me who to go to out here! Seriously...who gets this lucky?!
I hope you guys are having fun travelling along with us! Brian's birthday is tomorrow (a VERY OLD 28) and he starts at Google on Monday! Lots going on and we have just started!
Love you all!
