I must repent for neglecting my blog

Hello everyone! I want to repent for neglecting this blog, I know it's not that hard to post things every once in a while but it seems like we have just been so busy. So i am just going to update you on the big stuff and I will put pictures up soon. Starting in January we realized we needed to sell this condo. So we got a great agent (Diane Hull) who told us that we needed to get this house on the market as soon as possible. The market is so bad right now that she wanted to try and get it sold before it got worse! Yikes! On that happy note (not really) We got new carpet, got a storage unit to put most of our clutter in and had my mom come down to help decorate it. We spent about 3 weeks just focusing on the house and practically nothing else. So we had our first open house in the middle of Feb. and luckily the first people that went through wanted it! Yee Haw! We were so thrilled. We agreed on a price that we were both happy with and started into escrow. They wanted a 12 day escrow which was scary seeing that we are a family of 6! But luckily we worked it out so we are renting it back from them for the next 3 months. We officially closed escrow with them on friday and so we are now renters! We are so totally thankful that it turned out this way, we are still pinching ourselves.

Stu is excited about his job he has waiting for him in Salt Lake and we are now in the process of looking for somewhere to live in Utah. We are thinking of the Highland area and are going to Utah in two weeks to look for a good rental. We want to rent for the first 6mo. to a year so we can get a feel for where exactly we want to end up buying. So anyone reading this that lives in that area, if you see a great house for rent, let me know! I will officially be moving up to Utah in the beginning of June and Stu will follow at the very end of June when his program ends. Mack is just doing great. I cant' believe he is almost 5 months now! Over all we feel so blessed and things just seem to be falling into place. We are excited to start a new chapter of life in Utah but will totally miss our California experience. We have really loved it here. I hope I have updated you enough. I promise to be a better blogger and as soon as I find the right cord (even if I have to go to the storage unit!) I will be putting pictures up. Don't count me out! I am going to be better! Any advise on a good area to look in Utah will be happily accepted! We love hearing from you all. Segura fam

Yay! Congratulations on the sell of your house! That is great! Dan & I were just talking about if we could make it out to Stus graduation (which I don't think we will be able to). But he pointed out that next time we are in Utah we will get to see you guys!!! I've missed you! I will try to give you a call this week! Hugs!

You are so cute Christine. I am really going to miss you guys when you leave. I'm glad that you have a blog so we will be able to keep in touch. Girls night sounds great to me. I will take any chance I can get to get away from those cute twins you want to eat. :) I'll give you a call and we'll plan something out.

I am so happy that you sold your condo. I bet you are completely thrilled that it went so fast. I'm so happy for you and Stu. Can you believe we are almost done. It's almost scary!

Oh Christine you are so adorable.

I already got a full and complete update from your mother about getting your home sold, what a blessing, but it was great to read your blog and here it in your words!

Thanks for looking at my blog and for being so sweet. I just love you and I'm so excited for you to live by me!

We'll keep our eyes out for a good rental (we are always on the look-out for new homes). I can't wait to spend some time with you and your adorable children.

Take care!

Oh my gosh, such great news about the house, especially in this market. Your family is so cute and I can't believe how much your little men look alike.

I can't believe that it's that time already for you guys! Everything does seem to be falling into place for you guys. That is so nice, isn't it? I too have neglected our blog for a bit, but am trying to be a little more attentive. We'll see ;)
