We're Moving! Again! To a house!

It's true! Here's the new house! Just in case you guys have no idea why I'm using so many exclaimation points.... there has been lots of drama, trying to find a house.
We've been looking for a house since the beginning of the year (before then, actually, but that's when we got really serious and got a realtor) and couldn't find anything right. We could find it, and it'd be sold before we could do anything, like the next day! Finally, we found a short sale in Lehi at the first of April and put in an offer right away. After waiting over TWO MONTHS to find out, we didn't get the house. It was neck-and-neck with some other people and they barely won. So we decided to book a cruise (to bring our spirits up...can't wait for September!). The crazy thing is, we found out last Wednesday that we didn't get it. We immediately jumped into looking at houses again, but our realtor was swamped and couldn't take us until Monday. On Monday we saw our house, Tuesday evening put in an offer, heard back from the realtor one hour later, and started our negotiations. By 11:00 am today, they accepted our offer and the paperwork started rolling! So here we go! We definitely know good things often happen fast, so we're so excited to start this new adventure. Anyone want to help with the move??? :)

****Oops, forgot to mention, the house is in Herriman :) Thanks Chantel*****
