well, klayton and i have an accepted offer on a house in idaho falls! it's in our old ward, right by the temple and melaleuca field and downtown IF. i love that area and i'm really excited about the house. it's a duplex too! which means that we will rent out the studio apartment basement to help us pay the mortgage! yay! it has a big yard, a dog run with access to the outdoor garage (yay! i want a dog!), 2 bedrooms (in the part we will live in), an unfinished basement, and... well... it's just perfect. our realtor (and future bishop) let us know that the callings of the family in the ward will have to be passed on to us if we buy it. the current owner is the Relief Society President. GULP.
you may be asking yourself, "mandy, when did you and klayton decide to move and go house hunting?" my answer to that is, "yesterday, about 3 hours before we found the perfect place, submitted an offer, and signed the papers." wish us luck!
