Thanks for the info. I think we?ll come do some driving around in your neighbourhood & surrounding area this weekend. There?s so much out there we?re trying to learn as much as possible.
Ryan just got a job offer in Etobicoke which is what?s brought on the sudden move stuff (before that we were in limbo b/c we didn?t want to buy while he was planning on switching jobs). He wants to be 30 mins or less from his work. And I want to be less than an hr from my work so we?re definitely looking in all of your areas.
Rebecca, thanks for the scoop on the buses, it?s nice to get an opinion from someone who actually rides it everyday!
Andrea, I looked at the pics of your house on Facebook, it?s gorgeous! It really looks like a nice place, and the backyard! No wonder you choose it! There?s once house near Erin from the nest, which is really nice and we like it, but the yard is a bit smaller than we?d like so we?re not sure. After seeing what you managed to get it?s inspiring to keep holding on to find something that?s a perfect fit!
And total other random coincidence, I was looking through your wedding pics too on FB and one of your BM?s Beth is a grad student in the department I work in! I see her in the hallways all the time. As I looked through your pics, I was like she looks familiar? and then I clicked her name and it says she?s a grad student. She works in the lab right above my office! What a small world eh?
I?ll keep all you ladies in the loop about our house adventures I?m guessing it?ll be a few months before we actually buy and move into a place. I am so excited though! And who knows, I may up being one of your neighbours (I hope so!) it would be so nice to know someone in the area we choose.
On that note, since the 4 of us are all so close we should
definitely all get together for a bbq and some drinkies this summer. I think
all 4 of us are within 15 ? 20 minutes of each other. We?d of course bring our
DH?s, and any other nesties in the area (I can?t think of anyone else off hand
who?s around here though?).
Anyway, I?m sure my house questions have just begun, but we?re definitely on a good start! Your help is all very muchly appreciated
