We're MOVING!

It was all sort of a spontaneous blur, but today we signed a lease! We actually intended to simply check out different local apartment options in Chapel Hill and scope out the possibilities, but anybody can do things the rational way. We will be moving an entire three-minute drive down the road, so get excited.

Our current lease is up at the end of July, so there's no immediate move on the horizon, but our new apartment is definitely something to look forward to when the ants here start to eat our crackers at the beginning of the summer. We have been happy with our current little home, but the managing company is a royal pain and we are ready for a bit more space. The new place has a fireplace, two bedrooms (the master bedroom is very spacious and has a massive walk-in closet) and two bathrooms, a good-sized kitchen and its own washer and dryer. I know that for most of you that seems pretty basic, but for us that is palatial. My only question now is: how will we fill it?

Luckily, we have six months to fit in a trip to Ikea.


For those of you living in the Chapel Hill area who are considering a move at the end of the summer, come live with us at Shadowoods! One of the clinchers for us was that there is currently an incredible move-in deal, and we will be paying $200 less than the going rate for every month of the one-year contract (almost $2,500 savings). I think that the deal is up in a few days, but please give us a call if you want more info. I'm so tempted to put the price here because it is so good, but I'm constrained by my internal tackiness censor...


So, maybe not the dream house yet, but we're making progress! Here's a picture of the pool area, just because I like the tiers:

Yaaaaaaayyyyyyy!!! I'm so excited for you. Wow!! It is so cute and SPACIOUS!! Once you're all moved in and decorated, you'll definitely have to put some pictures up. It looks so nice. I bet you can't wait for summer. Now, I think we'll really have to come visit so we can say in the GUEST bedroom!! Congrats.

Nicole: I'm excited that you're not moving too far away. And did you know that the IKEA in Charlotte opens February 18th? Nick and I are going on the 20th. I've been getting my list together in anticipation. AH, IKEA. It merits a blog entry, and don't worry -- it will get one. Congratulations on leaving good old Louise behind.

Wow, I feel like I've never known so far in advance about a future move. That's cool. Congrats! I enjoy having a small place, easy to keep clean, but I look forward to more space down the road, for sure. Specially when the baby's here, taking over the house! Your new place looks very luxurious to me! No more laundromat! Woo-hoo!
