If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen in my stories that we were packing and then moved out of the Poway house we lived in. I received a ton of DMs asking about our move so I thought it would only be fair to do a blog post with a life update for those that care to know haha. So where are the Elegados now? We’re in Temecula! We are 90% done unpacking and we just need to organize all of our stuff. My mom has offered us her place many times before but we declined the offers because of the crazy drive we would have to commute. But after weeks of talking it over with Leo, we decided it would be best to make that sacrifice (AKA the drive, because my mom’s house and the Temecula area is super nice so they’re not much of a sacrifice lol), to save up for a down payment for our own house. We figured that this is the best time to do this now while the kids aren’t at school. My parents are now empty nesters since all of my sisters are officially in college so they have room for us in their 5 bedroom house. Our ultimate goal is to purchase a house in San Diego, which is super expensive. So your next question probably is… so are you quitting your job or making the commute? I’ll be making the commute! Thankfully I’ve been able to keep my part-time schedule where I only work 4 hours a day and the times I would be on the road is not the traffic times. My car is a hybrid so gas isn’t too much either. Next question you’re probably asking is how long are you staying there? We’re open! Definitely for a few months at least but we’ll see how it goes. We really love the area because it’s so family-friendly! Well there ya have it! Thanks for following along and being a part of my family’s life!
P.S. We donated about 70% of what we had in our house! It’s crazy to think how much stuff just sits around that you don’t really need. Our whole driveway was filled with things for donation lol.
