New House Update

I am so ready to be in our new house.  Ready for more space, for the new neighborhood.  To be in the mountains out of the heat.  To start this new stage of life.  But...  They still haven't started digging.  Our permits have yet to be submitted (but maybe this week!).  It's all been quite frustrating, especially as my pregnancy hormones get to me more & more.  We're still unsure of when exactly we will put our current house on the market, and uncertainty is so not my thing.  It gives me anxiety & stress.  I'm such a planner, and unfortunately, this whole process is hard to plan for and time perfectly.  Let alone throwing a birth into the whole mix.  I'm expecting to go into freak out mode shortly after our 4th of July vacation when I'll be 33 weeks.  So we all have that to look forward to!



This past weekend we were itching to just go up to the house site, even though not much exists except for a road & sidewalks.  But we wanted to escape the hot temps in the valley and perhaps fly a kite since it's quite windy up there.  There was a brief mention of hiking between Conor & I, but I thought that plan was squashed, so I threw on my boat shoes and off we were to the mountains.  Well apparently we were hiking.  A good couple of miles.  And it was kinda steep.  So yeah, my boat shoes were just awesome for that, as was my balance that is completely thrown off now that my belly is getting larger & larger. 



But complaints aside, it was gorgeous up there!!!  A summer storm rolled through bringing huge drops of rain while we were also covered in sunshine.  Wildflowers everywhere as well as trails, it was hard to choose just one.  I'm still in awe of the fact that we will literally be able to walk right out of house & down the street to numerous different trailheads, wildlife, & adventures.  My little explorers will love it!  And this may just be the winter that we finally buy some snow shoes, because again... we'll be able to strap those on right from our front door.



While we will be tucked up from the valley a bit, there is an adorable restaurant, market, coffee shop, & snow cone stand (priorities!) sitting a top the mountain just minutes from our house.  We have plans to check that out later this week.  Everyone we have encountered up there is so so friendly, I want to start spending more & more of time there.


I know the wait will be worth it!  But my goodness, I will be one super sad mama if we are not moved in before the holidays!  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

  5. Wow oh wow are those views amazing. I know it's so hard moving or building while pregnant. I can't imagine with two little ones at the same time. Glad you got up there to enjoy your space a bit though!

  9. Sounds like 100% the most perfect location for you guys, how cool. Hoping they start digging soon..!! How big is your lot (or is it like a regularly developed neighborhood?)? Looks like such a beautiful space.
