A CraZy StoRy.....

You might have noticed I have been a little lo-pro on the internet lately.. and there are quite a few reasons for that which I will likely share over time. ( I am NOT pregnant for those that are curious about that tidbit) HA I got some texts about that.....


Anyway.. ONE of the reasons is because there have been a lot of things in the works and I can't talk about them publicly which is difficult for me since I am no secret keeper.
 First on the list of " No longer top secret" is that Grizaland is MOVING. ( new house below)






It is a long story but if you remember, we put our house on the market 1.5 years ago and then took it off because it was such a frustrating ordeal ( loading up a baby and 2 dogs for showings and trying to keep the house so clean all the time). Well recently we started going to church at Judson Baptist and I sit with this older lady named Sue. She was asking me all the "where you from, where you live what you do" kind of stuff one Sunday and then she grabbed my hand and said " honey I am gonna pray for you to find a nice house in Brentwood".  
Not even a week later, I get a call from a friend who says this chick in her zoomba class wants to look at our house if we are still interested in selling and I said sure, not really thinking much about it. 
Two days later, our realtor called and said they wanted to buy the house. I was shocked and unprepared. Last week was a WHIRLWIND of looking at houses in the area/school district we were after and was pretty emotional. Too may details to get into it all but WHEW. 
( Not to mention that the 1st house our realtor Sara showed us, she fell and broke her foot! I felt terrible about that ordeal , especially because we kept looking at houses afterward and then she went to the doc and it was broken!)


New Living Room:






Anyway, long story long, we have contracts on this house and our new house now and are moving mid August! Its crazy, exciting and very emotional. I will not miss a 2 story house one bit, but we have had so many great times in this house, and our wonderful neighbors on all sides! That it will def be tough to leave. Thankfully our buyers seem to be in love with it as well so I am sure they will make many wonderful memories here too!


I just think its a perfect example of God's timing and plan that this all worked out so easily, and in record time when we least expected it. Within a week of Mrs. Sue praying for us a house, we got one and within about 1.5 months of her prayer we will be living in it. If you would have told me it would happen like that I would have laughed in your face. It's just so crazy, and so neat.


Stay tuned for details!

I don't think it is as much crazy as it is inspiring! How exciting for the Grizas!

(And would you believe it is giving me a boost of faith at a time when I need that more than anything?)

Can't wait to see what you do with the house!

Wow! So exciting...and now of course I'm wondering what else is going on. :) I've been very lo-pro lately too, seems like a summer thing maybe? Real life is happening!? I miss blogging but am not sure if I'll really be back or not. :/ Anyhow, congrats on the house and the big changes! We close on our house next week (need.to.pack) and move in two weeks after vacation!
