After Ryan got off work today, we drove about 75 minutes to a neighborhood in Ocala to check out the house we saw online that looked like our dream home. Ryan’s official start date with his new company is July 25, so we’re in a bit of a rush!
Before checking out the house, we stopped by Smoothie King for smoothies.
Ryan really wanted to order “The Hulk” smoothie from Smoothie King for dinner. He used to get The Hulk all the time in college and became quite excited at the sight of Smoothie King along the road.
I opted for a chocolate smoothie that was only okay. I almost shed a tear when I saw that the smoothie was nearly $5. My Vitamix was not happy about this decision either.
We sipped on our smoothies and polished them off right before checking out the “dream house.”
It had granite countertops in the kitchen, a fenced in backyard, a pool, office space, a gorgeous master bedroom and the location was in the part of town we really like. Plus, it was affordable!
Well, the house was just as amazing as it looked. The bad news? The owners still live there and have yet to find a new place to live…. and they’re looking to buy a new home, meaning the process could take a long time.
Ryan and I were a little irritated because they didn’t explain the situation to us on the phone and waited until we drove over an hour to see the place to explain that they are tentatively planning to move out in September when they advertised that the place would be available August 1. Not cool.
We agreed that the trip wasn’t a total waste because we decided we officially like that part of Ocala and will actively look for homes there.
Plus, we found a gym!!!
The last time we drove through Ocala, we toured four different gyms and all of them were pretty awful.
The gym we saw today offers a bunch of group exercise classes (no BodyPump ) and has a large area for cardio and weights.
It’s a winner!
And now I’m officially exhausted. I think all the wedding fun from this weekend is catching up to me because I am pooped.
I hope I can keep my eyes open for The Bachelorette tonight!
