We Have a House!!!!

I am so excited to share some news with my blogging family!! We have been assigned a house in San Diego!!! Ryan and I have never considered base housing because it's just the two of us. Financially, it's been much more effective to find a smaller apartment out in town versus somewhere that takes all of our BAH.

Now that we've been married a few years, I feel like our "requirements" list in an apartment/house is getting longer and longer. With our first apartment in Oceanside, we were happy with a bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom. Now we want a 2 car garage, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, a private entrance (meaning not like we enter into an apartment building and walk down a hallway of front doors), washer/dryer or hookups, and animal friendly obviously. To top it off we don't want to pay our his full BAH. Well, we found a few navy housing options in San Diego that meet this criteria. They have a flat rate option so we will not "lose" all of the housing allowance.

We applied for a house a few weeks ago, and they already have called us twice with offers. We were able to accept yesterday!! I am so excited!! I have been looking at the floor plans nonstop, and trying to decide how we want to decorate. I am so relieved to know that we will have a place waiting for us! That's one less thing we need to think about now!!
