Change of plans~

As most of you know, Skyler and I were planning on moving to Utah at the end of this month. Well, that didn't exactly work out according to plan. Skyler got a job offer in Pocatello with his company that will be a little more permanent and stable, which is just what we want. Am I excited to move to Pocatello? Not exactly, but we are buying a home there and its only 2 hrs from my moms house, so I can't complain much. We went and looked at houses last week with our realtor, and there is actually some beautiful areas to live in Pocatello. I'm starting to think I might really like it there. We still haven't decided if we want to build or buy yet. The rates for building are great right now, but you just can't beat the prices on foreclosed homes either. You can buy a home right now that was originally over $350,000 for $250,000! For those of you who are wondering what "my type" of home is, ill give you some examples. These are pictures of some of the homes we have looked at. We are still trying to find the "perfect" one.

vaulted coffer ceilings...GORGEOUS
Grand stone fireplace..gotta have this right?
Grand Stone Entrance
beautiful doors and entry way
granite counter tops- beautiful cabinets of course..
Grand room w/ arched entry way
Jetted Tub and Double Vanity
Large Master bedroom w/ Tray Ceilings and Picture Frame windows

These are just a few different houses we have looked at in Idaho. When we find one that has everything we want, it will be "THE one." Buying a house is not only exciting but also very nerve racking. I cannot wait to finally live somewhere more permanent, and raise Cayman and our future kids in our home. BUT, I am also nervous about having another large bill every month and having the commitment of being married to our house for 30 years! I am so grateful that my husband has worked his butt off for us so that we could have this opportunity.  We are lucky he even has a good job in this economy, and if that means we have to live in Pocatello, then I guess thats not too bad. :)
