Surprisingly the Hunt is over..

So last night I was looking and looking. I looked at so many sites my vision blurred. Finally around midnight (after talking out my frustrations on the phone with Ryan) I decided to give up. (PS - thanks to the anonymous commenter who left padmapper.com... it was a huge help!) I was looking on padmapper and I had found some that looked ok. As I was searching I found my way back to googlemaps. As I was seeing the location of one I curiously typed "condos for rent" in the seach nearby option.

And it popped up.


It was in our budget. It had good reviews (minus one or two about hot water issues in SOME units). It has a bus stop right in front to the metro ten mintues away. You can walk to Old Town Alexandria. Utilities included. It has a separate dining room, kitchen, bedroom... big closets. Hard wood floors. Space!

I emailed Ryan immediately and he went to visit today.

He loved it.

We have a place to live! We applied and should move in April 14th.

Thankk GOD!!

Ryan is trying to upload the video he took on his schmancy new phone and if I can I will try and put it on here.


  1. Congrats I hope it all works out and the move goes smoothly!

  2. Your gonna love Alexandria...it's awesome. So much to do! I just found your blog, and am now a follower. I also have a deployment blog, Goodnight moon! I write to my deployed Marine.

    Good luck with your wedding! It will be here before you know it:)
