Officially HOME OWNERS!!!

Jake and I are officially home owners. We closed on our house today. It was pretty overwhelming, feeling like you're signing your life away. There were so many papers to initial and sign. I just hope we didn't promise the bank our firstborn child (we very well could have!) We are excited though to finally have a place to call our own. We get the keys tomorrow morning and then we are going to start moving what we have packed during the week. The "BIG" move is on Saturday at 9am... so if any of you are totally bored and have nothing else to do, come on over. We promise to be done by the U/BYU football game at noon, and we will have doughnuts and gatorade for everyone... is that bribery or what?!!

Dad and I are so excited for you guys. I remember our first house signing. I was happy and excited to have our own place but scared of the responsibility and all the papers we signed that I didn't quite understand! It will be great when all your stuff is put away and you can fix some things you want to with the house and get used to the area and what is close and available. Congrats!

HOORAY for you! I can't wait to see the place. We move in on Sat. too and you are right that moving time revolves completely around the BYU-Utah game. Good luck! Lets get together soon!

Hip Hip Hooray!

Hope to join you in the home ownership area club soon. We'll see what happens post graduation.

Have fun with the move... sorry logistics prevent my assitance... tell you what, i will do my part by eating lots of turkey and stuffing tomorrow.

That's such exciting news! Darren and I are just started on all the home buying junk and it is so stressful. You must be so happy to at least have that part behind you. Where is you guys' place? Darren and I are looking at closing on a place in a couple weeks in Draper.
