Jake is graduating with his Bachelor's in 20 days.
In 28 days we are moving.

So we need to find housing.

Otherwise we might have to live in our tent and become professional campers.
And honestly, I hate camping.
Too many buggy bugs invading my personal space.

So for the past few days I've been searching the Arizona valley for a place for us to call home.

And I really didn't realize how emotional of a process this would be.

Provo is a special place for us. It's where Jake and I met, dated, got married, had Rhett and have some of the best friends we could have ever hoped for. And we've always been blessed with great housing so I wasn't going to settle for any old apartment.

At one place I started to cry because the laundry room wasn't big enough for Rhett and I to "fold" laundry together.
Crossed that one off the list.

At another apartment, I got a bad case of the giggles because the tile work in the bathroom looked it....something inappropriate.
Also crossed that one off the list.

So after 3 days I only had 3 places left that I felt OK with.

Option #1

9ft ceilings
Large closets
Playground/pool/racquetball/gym on site
Accent wall could be painted for us before we arrived for free

Not located near shopping etc

Option #2

Large coat closest
