For Christmas John and I bought a house :) Since BYU hired John almost 3 years ago we have known we were going back to Provo and have been looking for awhile. It is very handy to have your parent's living there and an uncle who is an excellent agent. We have looked and looked. Since the drop in the market and interest rates we have been looking for places close to BYU because it won't be long before we can't afford anything in Provo. We were greatly blessed to find this place. For those familiar with Provo it is on Dover Ln. Dover is up Timpview drive and a short left on Foothills. The house is 3 miles from BYU and is in a great neighborhood. Driving, it is a mile away from my parents but if you cut through my parent's next door neighbors yard (which we do all the time anyway) it is about a 5 minute walk. We sacrificed updating for location and yard. The house is not updated, my student housing apartment here is more updated but the location and the yard cannot be beat!! What's purple carpeting and purple sinks when you can have an big, amazing yard? Plus, it has everything...master bath, walk in closet, pantry, storage room, 2 car garage, laundry room, 2 fireplaces, two playrooms, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a craft room and of course, room for a basketball hoop! My favorite is the yellow marbled counter tops :) The house won't close until the end of March or beginning of April. The family wants to stay in the house till then and that is great for us. Everything is done now. All we have to do is wait and hope something crazy doesn't go wrong.
