The search is finally OVER!!

So, a while ago- we thought Chet had a job nailed! He had been told that he pretty much had the job in the bag- and that the company really wanted him, but they wanted to find a better fit for him. Vegas was the original plan, but it ended up not working out. A few weeks later we got a call asking him to come out to Mission Viejo, CA for an interview-- and he LANDED it! I'm SO overjoyed right now- after 5 months of job searching we are excited to finally actually have a solid answer, and KNOW where we are going. I'm sad to be leaving my "home" as my parents are a block away and I have 2 sisters here and 1 in College Station- and the many friends I have made since moving here almost 5 years ago-- but we needed this- and my dream to live in Southern California came a littler earlier then expected. Some of you may remember this post from when I took a trip to San Diego and was resold on living there... especially La Jolla. The weather is perfect- you get mountains and beach within 15 min. of each other- I mean seriously- WHO COULD ASK FOR BETTER?? ;)

I mean- SOAK it in!

And even though my sarcastic remark of "we are moving there!" after visiting last year- was just that-- wishful thinking... I guess the Secret DOES work! LOL! Maybe they should put me on their infomercial!

More info. to come as we find out more and when Chet starts etc... until then- I have a LOT of work to do to get this house ready for either renters or to sell. EEEKKK!

And a big thankyou to all of you who have kept our family in your thoughts and your prayers! We have felt every single one of them!!! (you almost have me crying;))

ps- all of you can start making your vacation plans to come and visit The OC and us--- NOW! We would LOVE to have you!

You should check out houses in Aliso Viejo :) I miss living there so bad. The ward is awesome and the area is *beautiful* and it's really close to Mission Viejo.
