We are moving in together!
So when we got engaged I was excited to start looking for a home. We don't plan on having kids any time soon and we will have my mother living with us so it made sense to look for a house/townhome/condo on the small side.
We don't need a lot of space and my mom only wants a nice kitchen Well, we've been looking for a while now but nothing really jumped out at us. We even went as far as looking at apartments because we had no problem renting. 2-bedroom apts were so expensive in the area of southwest Miami (it's called Kendall). I could not see spending $1300+ a month on renting, so we kept looking.
A week ago my cousin tells me that friends of hers at work have a villa that will be vacant by January. Would I be interested in looking at it? I said sure, I've seen a ton of villas in the Kendall area and many were nice just out of our price range. Well, this one was amazing. It's on the small side, but the master bedroom is huge and it had a completed patio that is fenced in and huge! It was surprising to see that in a complex that looks like a normal apt complex. So we jumped on it and told the ladies that we would love to move in.
The current residents will be out by January 5th. She said she needed a week to clean and then we could start moving in. I'm so excited, Danny and I live at home with family now so this is a huge step for us! He's so excited but doesn't show it, lol. He's that strong silent type
So this puts a dent into our savings plan for the wedding but we have worked on our budget and figured out a way to pay for 75% of the wedding in cash. I have a nice savings and Danny has gotten a second job so we'll be ok
