Hopefully that post title gives a little hint as to why I've been MIA. After some marathon house-hunting, soul searching and money stressing, we are UNDER CONTRACT in Truckee, which means that soon we'll have a house in the Sierras near Lake Tahoe.
Did I mention that we feel like the luckiest kids in the world?
Wanna see the house? Here's a little preview...
I'm too superstitious to talk more about it, lest we jinx the deal, but assuming it all goes through, I'll have TONS to share about DIY updates in the new house (on a new, more frugal budget), furnishing it on the cheap, figuring out what to move, living in the mountains, and so much more.
Oh, and for those of you who are curious, we're keeping the place in LA. (Hence doing everything on the cheap now, or even cheaper than what we're already in the habit of doing.) We're envisioning splitting time until we figure out if we can do small town life full time. If we love small town life, then we'll sell the LA place and make our monthly budget more comfortable. But for the time being, we'll be those jerks with two places. (Which I'm so crazy excited about. Not the jerk part, of course. Just the city-near-the-beach and the mountains-near-awesomeness part. It makes all the coupon clipping worth it.)
Hope you guys are all doing well! I have SOOOOO much catch-up reading to do!
