We're Moving!

Well, I haven't posted anything in a while because I've been running around like a mad women ever since finding out our family is MOVING TO UTAH.

Dallan got a job with Ancestry.com in Provo and starts work on Monday. Yes, this Monday. We are actually packing his car (cat included) and sending him to Utah tomorrow.

You know that image of a giant rock that gradually starts rolling down a nice little hill that eventually turns into rolling down a mountain? Well, I think we just reached the edge of a mountain, and we're rolling fast now.

We got back last night (Dallan and I) from a house hunting trip to Utah. What seemed like 50 houses later, we found one that I think is absolutely dreamy! We will only be renting not buying, seeing as we own our house in Mesa and aren't fully sure what to do with it. But this is a house I could see living in for a while. It's in the foothills of Provo, tucked away in a beautiful neighborhood, it has a beautiful yard, TONS of space, it's 5 minutes from Dallan's work and he never has to leave our street to get to work, just has to go down a mountain on his way to work. :) Anyway, I'll post pictures when we get there and have pictures to post. But now that we have a place to live arranged it all seems much more real.

Dallan leaves tomorrow.

Movers are coming a week from today.

In two weeks we'll be at the homestead for a brief family visit, and then...

Utah.
