We Are Moving!

I am thrilled to announce that this weekend we signed the lease to our new place! We will be moving at the beginning of February to this super-cute townhouse close to the one we live in now. I am excited for something new. I love our place now but the rent was getting ridiculously high and it's time for JC and I to be on our own with the kids. I will miss having my mom live with us but it's time. She won't be far from us though because she is looking for an apartment in the same area and my sister lives in the next complex over. Family sticks together (or at-least close-b right?)

Our new home is a 3/2 on the second and third floors. It is a corner unit so we won't annoy too many neighbors!! I only have the pics from the listing but as soon as I take my own pictures, I will post them.

This is the view of the courtyard from our front door. The landscaping in this complex is impeccable!

The kitchen. It's brand new to us since the owner just remodeled it.

This is the view from the door that leads out the balcony. That door that you see at the end is the entry door. To the left is a half-bath and the laundry room and to the right is the kitchen. 

This is the hall at the top of the stairs that leads to the three bedrooms and there are also 2 bathrooms up here.

This is the master bedroom complete with a walk-in closet. 

I can't wait to move in and decorate. Decorating a rental can be fun and I will make sure to show the progress here on the blog. 

Just in case you were wondering why a rental, it's because the Miami housing market is insane, think about $250,000 for a decent starter home. Homes are super expensive and on top of that property taxes and insurance are sky-high. We are renting now and saving little by little and hopefully we can purchase a home within the next 3-5 years!

Oh and we already went furniture shopping and JC fell in love with this sectional at Rooms to Go. I still need to measure to make sure it fits nicely but I think this might be a winner!

Our new complex also has grill areas, a kids park, a pool and a gym so we plan on taking full advantage of all of it! I'm so happy to share this news with you and if you have any decorating suggestions, please feel free to share!!


  1. How exciting to be moving! It's great that your family will still be close by. New follower via #epicmommyadventures #turnituptuesday

    1. We are excited to move! Thanks for the follow!

  2. This is so beautiful! Good luck with everything!! :)

  3. Ooh, I love the sectional.
    I didn't realize you lived with your mom but that must be so nice to have some space too. I lived with Cassidy's parents for a bit but that was very challenging because they weren't my parents.

  4. Oh how exciting!!! And I LOVE that view you have from your door, you're right the landscape is impeccable! I've heard how expensive Miami is so I can totally see why renting and saving is probably the option for most people there. Hopefully this year I will get to visit south FL for the first time and I can't wait! Congrats on your new townhouse, I can't wait to see what you do with it (and I LOVE that sectional! Beautiful color!).
