Sandy City CLEAN UP

Sandy City clean up is a city SPRING and FALL clean up that you put all your trash and junk and yard clean up out on the curb and the city comes around and cleans it all up.  How Sweet is that!! Of course the previous owners left us with A TON of clean up and we still have a lot more to go but at least this is a start.

Bar stools remodel

Another one of the many new projects for our new home. My mother in law gave us her old bar stools so I have made them my own by spraying the metal frames to match our oil rubbed bronze hardware and replace the old leather seat with new fabric. I was pretty impressed with myself. Now on to the next five chairs and one more project will be done.

Update On Life

Since taking my new job a month and a half ago and moving into our house life has been absolutely nuts!  My job is A LOT more work than I ever thought possible.  Keeping up with both properties, making the owners happy and my boss, while learning new properties and the company has thrown me for a loop.  Also, once again, the main property I work out of is FOR SALE!  I feel like a can't catch a break.  I will be staying with my same company when the property sales but don't exactly know where I will end up. 
The house is AWESOME.  Parking in a garage is the best feeling ever.  Danny and I have been working on cleaning and updating the basement so that we can rent it out as an income suite.  I will post before and after pictures when they are ready.  It has been so fun to see how excited Danny gets about all the MANLY things he is learning and doing (like operating a power drill :) ).  This house has a laundry list of never ending updates and improvements we want to make but I am SO SO SO excited to do it all. 
Danny is working very hard to make sure we are taken care of.  His work is going great and hopefully pretty soon he will be full commission again and making even more than what he does now so I don't have to stress so much. 

We have been very blessed lately and love all our family and friends for all their love, help and support through everything we have been through!!!

Danny's 29th Birthday

I felt really bad this year because Danny's birthday just kind of came an went.  We did do dinner with all his friends which I didn't get a picture of but he planned it all and these are some pictures from his small family party.  I have been really busy with work and the new house and super stressed so I was not a very attentive, loving wife this year.  Next year it is my plan to make up for it 10 fold!!

Happy Birthday Honey!!! I couldn't live life without you!!!

Indoor Soccer

Danny's indoor soccer game on his birthday.  He scored 2 goals for the team and it made his night that I was willing to go to this 11PM game in Bountiful.   He is so cute!!

New Job!

I absolutely LOVE to keep life interesting and changing as much as possible for some reason.  I was told by a VERY reliable source that I should apply for a new management company.  So I did.  I applied, got the job and start in 2 days!!  I am super excited to finally make a job change that is MY choice.  The property I work on has been sold and bought and management has changed twice in the last year and a half and I am ready to make a change.  I will be managing two separate properties, one down town and one in North Salt Lake.  http://liveatridgeviewapts.com/  and http://www.liveatalliance.com/seven65lofts.  One is a brand new property and the other is an old one they are renovating to make it modern and updated!!  I can't wait to work for this new company and learn about two new markets and how to run two properties at the same time!! Life just keeps getting more and more exciting. 

Danny's job is doing fabulous,  we are buying a new house, and we are taking a 10 day trip to Costa Rica in April!  Life could not get any better right now!

House Offer Accepted...Now What?

We were informed today that our house offer was accepted in a record breaking 10 days!!!  We were told that a short sale could take from 6-12 months to go through...boy were we fooled!!  So now on to the 25 day cram everything into it and get it all approved process.  We have 25 days to make sure our loan is taken care of and approved, get the house appraised (hopefully it appraises for what we offered or even better, more than we offered), and get the inspection done.  The last two items are the ones I am most worried about.  If the house doesn't appraise for what we offered then we would have to see if they will lower the price or walk away.  And the inspection, who knows how that could go.  The house was built in 1974 and needs A LOT of work on the inside so hopefully that doesn't equate to A LOT of work everywhere else.  I feel like this is a little to good to be true but that is the pessimist in me coming out.  I LOVE this house and want it so bad.
