Tom was offered a transfer from Rent-A-Center to a Dallas store. Well, its technically in Dallas, but borders the city, Mesquite. I'm pretty sure the date Tom picked out to start is January 20th. Briggy and I will follow him down shortly after once our lease is expired--I'm hoping we can reunite right around Briggy's first birthday!! (Feb 15th) Tom and I have never spent a night apart, so it should be.....very sad :( I have friends and family that I am going to make stay with me, so I'm not too lonely--plus preggo lady over here has to pack (how fun!?) We've been looking at houses in a town outside of Mesquite--Forney, TX. I just think that Forney is an awful name...I know you all are going to think I'm horrible and a shameful Molly Mormon...but whenever I hear "Forney" I think of horny....isn't that dreadful?
Anyway, its a really quaint town--it is actually the "Antique capital of Texas" pretty neat, huh? Well, I already have my HEART set on a house. At first I had one picked out that was suuuuuuuper nice....huge--but it turns out it was a 'short sale' which can cause a lot of drama and time we don't really need. So I was searching a lot today and came across this cutie thats pretty good sized too.
Its just shy of 2700 sq. ft, 4 bedrooms, has a gameroom, 3 car garage...is in a planned community with tennis courts, soccer fields, basketball, bike trails, recreation/picnic areas, pool, huge playground and there is even an elementary school for the community...very family orientated.
Here are some pics!
It's in our price range, very very affordable, has everything we could ever want....so please keep us in your prayers that if its meant to be, we'll make this house our home and our move will be successful!
It's going to be hard living far far away from both our families, but I am sure Texas is the place for us to be right now.
Not to mention, Briggy will make THE CUTEST COWBOY EVER!
