The last time I posted was before we signed on our house, so this is a little timeline of the events since. You will quickly realize why I was so anxious to move. This is what our apartment looked like (to some extent) for exactly 1 month.
Oh wait, what floor?
We loved living in that ward. The people were so wonderful, and the price was too perfect! I will miss my very first garden. Here are some freshly picked Sun Sugar tomatoes. (yes, they are supposed to be orange) They were delicious!
Finally, Aug 26th arrived, and we signed on our house!! Thanks Critchfield, for working with us!! We have a house!!!!
Our first Sunday in the new ward, we made some awesome friends! They have had us over for dinner countless times since we started attending this ward, which was before we moved in! They helped us pack and load the moving truck. We are so glad you guys are our friends!! This is Nancy and the lovely cake she made me for my birthday! It got a little crushed in transport...it has character!! Thanks again for the exclusive party. It was so fun! (now back to work!)
After a few days of mad unpacking/cleaning/whatever, we headed down to St. George for my birthday to see Aida at Tuacahn. We had such a FUN time!! This is Radames and...I forget his name. :( sorry! But dude, you were amazing!!!!!
We had to use KILZ paint in the basement. It "kills" the smell and bacteria, so we used a ton of it! This is Cutie Pants Matt painting the food storage room. Notice the hole in the wall? That used to be a coal chute!! Awesome, huh? Isn't Matt so cute?
This is my papa gearing up to fix this silly mess. The previous tenants decided to tear down this corner wall, exposing the brick, and a big fat mess. You'll notice we had to take the cupboards down to do the job right.
I swear this was clean the other day! This has been the working space for all our projects.
This is my cute Matt.

I love this wall! It's my favorite place. It's what you see when first walk in. Thanks mom and Janna for helping me decorate! I am so happy with how everything turned out.
Thanks again to all who have helped us so much, especially our parents! We are so excited to be in our very own house. We would love to have you over!
