Our Home (pics. included)

We were able to finally move into our home on Friday, April 9th, the day after Matt's Birthday! This is us pictured on Saturday morning about to head off to Pahrump for Megan's wedding (Matt's sister.)

Megan looked beautiful in her dress and I teared up watching her walk down the isle. She looked so grown up and so stunning. Just like Catherine Heigl in 27 Dresses, I love to look back at the groom and watch his expression while everyone first lays their eyes on the bride. Jerry was smiling ear to ear!
This is my favorite picture of the night. This is Megan dancing with her dad, my father-in-law. I love her expression - so dainty!
The typical "Matt and Tanya" shot. Aunt Carolyn informed us that we are now a household name and whenever they take pictures of themselves, they are called the "Matt and Tanya."
We totally predicted this. Haha!
We plan on making walks a regular part of our Sunday afternoons. There is a beautiful park right by our neighborhood that has playgrounds, grassy areas, and walking trails up mountains.
The view of our community from the top of the mountain.
Cookie and Rockie almost died. Cookie was carried most of the way and poor Rock Dog was dragging just a bit.
I'm not sure if this is Penn or Tellers house but one of them owns this house located just on the other side of the mountain you hike. This is the view of their house from the top.

The view of the strip from our side of town. I love that the strip is just 15 mins away but yet a long distance off.
We are in love with Mountains Edge. So peaceful and quiet yet modern and perfect!
Matt loves history and we couldn't leave to go back down the trail until he had the chance to read everything these plaques said about the history of the Mountains Edge area.
Our new home!!!
We're just glad Rockie fits right in.
After our little Sunday walk.
One of Matt's friend came over and the second he saw Cookie he asked if a Ramba came with the house. I pretty much died. Truer words have never been spoken.
So happy!!

Your house looks bomb, you look bomb, cookie.... well she's the bomb for tolerating my kid pretending that's she was her real furry baby this summer. I wish I could come visit before we head out. Miss you friend.

Congrats on your house!!! It's so pretty! And I love your cute hiking outfit. How do make the outdoors look fashionable?? haha I need to get some tips from you.

I don't think that is Penn and Teller house. You have to go further up that mountain where it says "no trespassing". It is really modern looking and has a skull painted on the top of the roof.

The house looks nice! I can't wait to come visit. I am glad you guys settled in Vegas!

You guys look so adorable! Congratulations on the house! It looks fantastic. I can feel that this house will bring you many good memories. Are you staying in this house for good? How is the stay since you’ve moved? I’d love to see more postings about your house. Good luck!
