The kids...

This weekend we had the pleasure of dog-sitting our friend's LARGE chocolates lab Jake. He and Layla are buddies and love to chase each other around furniture and lick each other's face until their tongues go numb. We had him Thursday night to Sunday afternoon. We went on a long walk around our new home in Stapleton late Friday afternoon and the next day we rompted around in the dog park. Jake stayed the night on Saturday night and I even caught them sharing Layla's bone. Poor Jack-the-Cat was exiled to the loft were he reigned as King all weekend. Its not too bad as he stays up there most of the time we are gone at work. Jake's brute strength was something Jack didn't want to take a chance on. Its a good bet too because he is a strong dog. Hope everyone is doing well, and remember, we are still taking applications to help us move...

This Is The One...FOR SURE!!!!!!

This Is The One....Hopefully....

Yesterday, after a long day of searching, we found what will hopefully be OUR FIRST HOME! WOO HOO! It is in a really cool area called Stapleton. Stapleton used to be home to the Denver Airport. After a ton of revitalization work to the land, a community has been developed fully equipped with shops, restaurants and a "downtown" feeling without being right downtown. It's great!

The house that we put an offer on is called a Carriage Home and is designed after what many European homes look like: two floors, one family on top floor, one family on bottom floor, each with their own entrance and garage. Think duplex but vertical. :) Anyway, it is really cute AND is BRAND NEW! We are pumped! The house has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and a huge living space that flows between the living room, dining area and kitchen.

We went back today to take some pictures. The house has been decorated because it was the model and unfortunately, the only thing we will get to keep is the Picasso print that the sales agent tossed into the deal (thanks to Chris!). If all goes well and our offer is accepted on Monday, we will be closing by the end of the month!

Enjoy the pictures....and hopefully they will be filled with visitors soon! :)

The Latest

Well, it was a weekend filled with lots of happenings. We spent yet another Saturday house hunting with our realtor. We found out that someone placed a bid Thursday on the house (pic in previous blog) that we really loved last week. Bummed out, we decided to really hit the hunt hard. This time, however, we didn't see anything that jumped out at us like last week. Houses out here are so expensive and much of what we are looking for is just out of our price range. Thus, we have decided to expand our search to townhomes to help with our problem with having to stay in the city. Just tonight, we found out about a great townhome in Park Hill, a neighborhood just north of the captial, that seems worth checking out. Keep your fingers crossed and we'll keep you posted! :)

In other news, Chris and I have ordered the Billy Blanks Tae Bo Bootcamp series to work ourselves back into shape for the summer! If Billy can't do it, then I don't know who can! All I can say is, watch out for my round about kick and Chris's flying fists!

Have a great start to the week!
