So much has been happening recently (welcoming the first baby in our group, selling the condo, friends’ weddings and more) but I just haven’t had time to sit down and blog about it! I must make time though, so here I am during my lunch break, typing away! Hmmmmm….. which to start with first?!?!?!
Our home from 2009 to 2014! We made so many wonderful memories there!
- It was our first place together
- Our first time ever having the police knock on our door (darn neighbors filed a noise complaint and it was not even 10 pm!)
- It’s where the Mr. proposed
- We had Dexter marathons with my friends
- and so much more!
It was a great starter home for us. But, I knew when my parents and I first bought it that it was only temporary. I had bigger plans down the road to obtain a house once we saved up enough money. I wanted the white picket fence, yard, dogs and the whole nine yards! In 2014, we were finally able to buy our first single family home! Boy was that a roller coaster ride but with a sweet ending!
We held on to the condo for another 2 years so we could fix it up before selling it. Good ol dad was the one who did all the renovations himself! He truly is a master handy man, even if it takes him years to finish a project! The end result is always worth the wait (mom may say otherwise though hehe) ;)
While I’m extremely happy and grateful that the condo is sold, it is still bittersweet. After 5 years of living there and as much time and effort that my dad put into fixing it up, it really became a piece of me! None the less, on Friday September 2nd, we officially bid adieu to the condo! We wish the new owners, whom I nicknamed “Queenie,” all the joy and happiness as they start their new life in a lovely condo!
With the condo being sold, there was only one thing left to do….. CELEBRATE! The Mr. and I went all out – with a fancy feast at Morimoto’s! We ordered appetizers, salad, sushi, main entrée, dessert and coffee! The best part was – all that only cost us $40 because we had a gift card! Now that’s WINNING!
Thank you condo for all the memories!
And a quick shout out to our realtor at Island Realtors for helping us with the sale of the condo as well as the purchase of our home! They’re efficient, knowledgeable and easy to work with! Highly recommended for your buying/selling needs!
