We Found Our Place!!

This weekend was a WHIRLWIND!! Ryan and I went to Grand Rapids on Saturday to look for a place to live when we move this summer. Starting at 9:30am we met with a different person to see a different apartment every half an hour until 5pm! Yes, we are insane!

Other than the occasional kitchen sink in a bedroom, pink porcelain toilet, or drunk guy (who we took a picture of) sleeping in his bed while we look around his apartment, it was a great day.

We knew we wanted to be close to the hospital and around 3pm we FINALLY found a place that would be great for us! We were so excited, we filled out the application and payed the $20 fee so they could run our credit checks and celebrated as we drove away to our next appointment. We had a few more scheduled, even though we had found our place we figured we should probably see the other places since landlords were waiting for us.

So, the crazy thing is, we were so set on the place we saw at 3pm that I didn't even take my camera into the last places we saw.

So, I don't have any pictures to show you. We are so excited. It's a great little duplex a few blocks away from the hospital where Ry will be working, with wood floors, all new appliances and a gloriously clean and white tub in the bathroom! Yippee!

You can all come and visit sometime. We'll grill burgers.

Hi Amber! I saw your blog through Kate Podjan's and thought I'd say hi! Your posts crack me up! Also, you probably already know about this but I've heard incredible things about Mars Hill church (in Grandville, MI) -

God Bless!
