We really love this home. We are sad to leave Eagle Mountain however we know that this move is for the best. Finding this home has also made it easier to make the move. 🙂

So I know it’s been forever since I have updated the blog. I apologize. It’s been so crazy here with the move and traveling and then the holidays… I just don’t know where to start. So Ill start at the beginning….

 

We moved to Eagle Mountain, Utah on October 29th, 2008. As posted earlier, Garron got a new job that is based out of Orem, Utah, requiring us to move. We are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives and more exciting is that we can do it together. Oh the joys of marriage! Garron’s Company was so great to let Garron fly out of Vegas for about 2 months while we worked out the financial side of moving. After everything was settled and the truck was loaded, we were on our way to Utah.

 

The Move

We originally were going to borrow my dad, grandpa, mom and Garron’s parents, to help us move. My mom’s good friend, Anne, has a trailer that she let us borrow and my dad has a trailer from work. We had most everything arranged to use the two trucks and two trailers. Well when it finally came down to it, we decided to rent a truck (Penske) because of the weather and space concerns as well.

 

Tuesday morning we went down to pick up the truck and Garron made a joke to the salesman to let us rent a 22’ for the same price as the 12’ we ordered. Well I thought the guy would just laugh in our face and say “Heck No, You crazy?” But instead, the gentleman said, “I don’t have any 22’s but I do have a 26’ I could give you for the same price.” Holy cow we were so excited. So we took the offer. We felt so lucky and blessed that we didn’t have to worry about space. We just had to worry about filling it up with gas!

 

So Garron, my dad, my grandpa, and Garron’s dad all helped us load up the truck. Tuesday night we slept at Garron’s parents for our last night in Vegas, as our whole life was in the truck. Wednesday morning, after some hassle, Garron headed off in the truck around 8:00 am. I was planning on leaving around 9 or 9:30 and then, because I could go faster then the truck, I would either beat or meet Garron at the house about the same time.

 

Well I still had to do some final touches with the move and I was sure taking my time! I had to run the Post Office and forward our mail. In the mean time, Garron’s dad was so kind to load the little things we forgot from the house, into my car. By the time I got back to the house, everything was ready and I was on my way around 10 am.

On the way up to Utah, I stopped in St. George to have lunch with my sister Kallie. Well she wanted to eat at El Pollo Loco, which I LOVE, but it does take some time. We had a great time but I didn’t end up on the road till about 1pm. So then it was another 4 hour drive to our new home.

 

Meanwhile, Garron was inching closer and closer to our house and getting more and more mad that I wasn’t close. He ended up getting to the house around 4 and I got there around 5pm. I came with pizza as to offset everyone’s anger towards me. We had a huge group to help us, my mom, my sister and her boyfriend, my two brothers, Garron’s speaker Art and his two boys and then I came to see everything all loaded and boxes ready for me to unload.

 

Thank you everyone who helped us in the huge process. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Well for those of you who read our blog, you know that we are moving to Utah. I have been a little slack with posting details so I applogize. Here is an update.

We have been struggling with our Property Managers with getting out of our lease. I know that by leaving the premises before April 2009 we are in breach of our contract but they are being a little ridiculous. Once we mentioned the word “move” they started sending us emails and letters telling us that we WILL NOT get our deposit back (which I already knew), and we have to pay some additional fees. We have to pay to get the carpets cleaned which they told us would be about 100-200 dollars and also a “Releasing Fee” of $450!! I was so mad. I just thought that they were trying to get all the money they could from us before we left. Also, if we left the property and stopped paying rent, then they can hurt our credit for the what we didnt pay on our remaining lease. I was so frustrated and worried as to what to do.

I posted about us looking for renters a while ago at the slim chance we would have someone interested. Well, a long time friend of Garrons, Sara Young, contacted us and wanted to see the house. Both her and her hubby, Ryan, loved the house the minute they saw it. We were excited that we didnt have to worry about our credit and that we would have someone to take over or sign a new lease on our property.

After long talks with Garron and Jared, our brother-in-law who is an attorney, we contacted the property management with the Youngs name and number. The Property Managment company had the Young family fill out an application and they GOT APPROVED!

We also are getting our “Good Faith Deposit” back, thanks to Garron putting up a fight!

So we are moving to Utah in about 2 weeks. Its crazy to think that I wont be driving the streets of Las Vegas anymore. To think that we are leaving sun for snow and Nevada for Utah is very bittersweet. I think I will always love Vegas, for many reasons, but for the fact that Garron and I started our family here. We had our first home together in this area and experiences so many “Firsts” here. I love Utah and they are so many good things about this move, however, there are many sad things about leaving Las Vegas.

Here are some photos of our new home in Eagle Mountain, Utah. For all you family and friends, we will be having a house warming party in the upcoming weeks.

The view from the front. It looks small but wait till you get inside!

This is our Family Room, complete with hardwood floors and a fireplace! It huge too!

My BEAUTIFUL Kitchen! It is absolutely my favorite. (the fridge will be there when we get there). Also, the hardwood floors continue through the main floor.

This is a hallway that leads to the laundry room. The stairs lead to the basement. In the hall is this build in cabinet that has two computer stations with drawers. Great for when our kids start doing homework!

Last but not least…

The Laundy Room. The room is HUGE!! It will be really nice to have somewhere to keep all of our laundry soap and accesories.

Well thats the house. We are both really excited and cant wait to get all moved in and settled into our new home. I will post pictures once we move with the rooms and bathrooms and such. Enjoy for now!
