We Sold Our House!

God is amazing.  I am always in awe of how he works and how perfect his timing is.  I am so grateful to him.

We sold our house yesterday!  We signed the papers this morning!

You see, we decided a few months ago that we were ready for a new house.  We love this house, but we have absolutely grown out of it.  And, it was just time.  Hubby bought this house 7 years ago, a few months before we met.  It has become "our home" over the years, but I am beyond exciting to have a hosue that we chose together!  I've never bought a home before, so this whole process is really new and exciting for me.  We went to the design center picked out all of our colors and custom choices, and I can't wait to see everything put together!

Listing it was hard, and showing it with a baby and a doggie was a challenge!  We spent many evenings and weekends sitting in the car, eating Sonic (super healthy, right?), and then parking in the new neighborhood and walking around with Jaxson and Bandit.  There just are not a ton of places to go with a baby and a doggie!

But, we prayed and prayed that if it was in God's timing and plan that we would sell our home.  Everything has just worked so perfectly and I trust God completely.  And in that trust, he sold our home for more than we thought we would get in only 5 weeks!  Thank you, God.  You are amazing and we are so grateful!

We have to be out of this house on June 17th, and our new home won't be ready until August.  I think we are going live with Hubby's family in the meantime.  I am very concerned with how that is going to transpire.  What is it that Ben Franklin said?  Houseguests and fish both smell after 3 days?  Oh my is going to be an interesting couple of months!!!!

Any tips on being great houseguests?  Have any of you had or been a guest for an extended amount of time?

Here are a couple of pictures of our lot, and our frame for our foundation.  The new neighborhood is so cool - everything is built around a huge lake.  We couldn't afford a home on the water, but our house is only a couple of blocks away from the lake, so that's exciting.  I can't wait!

Congrats, that is so exciting!!! What a big step to make a home together and build a place for Jaxson to grow up. I can't wait to see the new one go up....and I'm totally coming to visit when it's ready! :)
