Let the house hunting begin!!!


North Aurora

We took our second round of house hunting this past Tuesday and fell in love with 2 different houses. The one in Montgomery that I love is 4 years new, has 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathrooms, a family room, dining room, full size basement, 2 car garage, sitting room, nice bright kitchen, nice professionally landscaped yard, a nice deck with a 5 person hot tub!!!! It is gorgeous- cute paint colors- it totally screams my name.... the downside is that it has a homeowners association fee and an SSA fee which brings the monthly payments just for those 2 without the mortgage to $200/month!!!

The one that we found in North Aurora is cute and has alot of potential but it does need some updating. I am posting a picture of it for those who would like to see it. If you want to go on, the mls# to type in is 06548637. There are a few other houses that we are going to look at this weekend- mostly in Batavia, Geneva and a few in Montgomery. We will keep you posted on what our decision is don't worry. Until then just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Sunday Night Scrabble Fun

We went to the Bodells this past Sunday night to play some scrabble. We ended up having a TON of fun- I think by the time we left at 10:30 my stomach hurt so bad from laughing I felt like I got punched. We really had a great time.

Bye Bye Allan's

So Monday was my last day of working at the school so I was looking forward to sleeping in. However, my good friends, Sarah, Matt and Eli Allan are moving to Michigan so I decided to go have breakfast with them thinking that I could just sleep in on Wednesday (yeah I didn't get to do that). I can't believe how big Eli has gotten since I sat for him last summer- he's a little man! He has a full head of blonde hair and is so adorable. It took him a minute to remember me but once he did, he wouldn't let me put him down. It was really a great visit and I am going to miss them but they are only 3 hours away so I can go visit!! I took some pictures before I left, Eli is so photogenic- he went crazy for the camera.

It's hump day!

Yea- it's Wednesday!!!! For all those who have been checking the blog here's what's new
  • I went to the 8-5 shift at the office- it makes the day go by a lot quicker
  • I am set up to tutor 4 students this summer, ranging from 2nd- 4th grade with another mother wanting my help with her 4 year old autisitc son- hmm, I don't think I will be able to squeeze that one in but I will keep her number for the fall. I think I should have just done tutoring this summer- it pays pretty good!
  • I am supposed to go back to the school I student taught at to aide for the next school year and they even gave me a $5 raise- which was so deserved. They are holding it for me but I am still hoping for a teaching spot!!!
  • House hunting starts next week!! We have about 5 houses that we are interested in seeing and there are even a few in St. Charles and Batavia!!
