Today (I’m scheduling this post, so this post is actually Saturday, Sept 10) Mathew and I found an apartment! We are SO excited!
Mathew and I were going to go on our 3rd round of apartment/house/duplex hunting this weekend (as you all know). We had been looking for a place at the beginning of summer, then last weekend, and then again this weekend. With the wedding swiftly approaching, we knew we needed to start seriously looking and get something fast.
There were only 6 weekends available to look (up to the day we wanted to move in) which wasn’t a lot of time for us to really look all over town (especially when you take into account that real estate offices are closed on weekends and apartment complexes open late and close early). We had been talking about moving in during Thanksgiving weekend. Yeah, that may seem like a bad weekend (and I’m sure it’ll be hectic) but that’s exactly 1 week before our wedding and we’ll already have our family in town to help us move! It was perfect for us.
We picked out a nice 1 bedroom apartment and they have a great big pool, work out room, free club room (most here you have to rent to use them per hour), and the apartment itself has a nice sized bedroom with beautiful bay windows (perfect for a chaisse in front)!
I am seriously so excited you guys. WE HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE! We signed a pre-lease today and we are just waiting for our credit approval. YAY! Thanks so much everyone for your kind kind thoughts and prayers that were sent our way.
