Time to upgrade!

Rob and I have been talking for a while about getting a bigger house. We have been causally looking on Zillow. Our house needed a few things done before we wanted to sell so we weren't really in a hurry. One day I went and checked out a house and I think it got me excited to start looking for a bigger house. 

The next weekend Rob had off, we went and looked at 2 houses on Sunday. One in Lodi and one in Galt. We looked at the Lodi house 1st and fell in love! It has everything we need! So much space! But we still wanted to check out the house in Galt since it had a pool. It was nice, but we really liked the Lodi house. 

So on Monday our amazing realtor, Eileen Schamber, contacted the seller and they weren't going to take any offers since the house was somewhat pending. So we were bummed. But later that day, they decided to take an offer from us! So we sent one over and they accepted! We were ecstatic!! So over the moon excited! But know we knew we had to get our house sold before we could get this one. 

We were in a mad rush since the photographer was headed over on Tuesday. I don't think I have ever work that hard to get the house picture ready in a day! It was crazy! We moved a ton of stuff into storage but we had it ready in time. 

The house went on the Market on Wednesday- yes... that same week! We had our 1st private showing on Thursday and 2 open houses over the weekend. We accepted an offer on Sunday or Monday, which put the new house into escrow! 

All that was done in a WEEK! Yes, just a week! Now we are a the end of the tunnel and just waiting for the closing date on our current house and our new house. We are so lucky to have Eileen as our Realtor not just because she is amazing, but because she knows us. She knows our kids and all about our crazy life. I knew she wouldn't let us buy a home that wasn't a good fit for us. 

Until next time- hopefully from our new house!

We started school a month ago--- Finally getting to this post!

School is back in...FINALLY! WE have been back in school for a month and I life has not slowed down! We had a great summer but I am happy to have the kids back in school! But first a little about our summer break.

We had a busy Summer! I have gone a little quite due to being worn out from all we have been doing plus working and Mason being a night owl! I might need to get him the book Go the F**K to sleep by Adam Mansbach. He has hit a rough patch and wants to go to be late.... and I mean LATE! I just put him to bed and its 11:05PM. He is wild from start to finish with 1 nap during the day. If you know some tricks or some vodoo shit.... I will take it gladly!

The kids took a Jiujitsu summer camp for 2 weeks at Valley Fit in Stockton and they LOVED it! Great people and great training all the way around! The kids are begging to go back.

Then at work I had an Internal Audit.... Which is always fun! If you are a UPSers, then you know the joy of always getting ready for KETER! But, I get to spend time with some great co-workers when they are here so I don't mind!

Then the kids went up to Truckee for a few days! Lucky kids! They got to go swimming, and crawdad fishing and all kinds of outdoor stuff! Auntie Katie and Papa Jack are the best! We love them and are so thankful that they love our kids just like there own grandkids!

Last but not least, we celebrated Masons 2nd Birthday! I can't believe he is 2 already! He is such a wild boy at heart and always keeps us on our toes. Especially since he can reach inside the sink... HELLO knives!! He is such perfect fit to out wild and crazy family!

Towards the end of our summer, we headed off to Burney Falls at McArthur-Burney Falls Memorial State Park  for our annual Mooney Family camping trip!

And guess what?!? We are selling our house! But more about that on the next post!

Until next time!
