::Celebration:: [Feb. 4th, 2003|11:22 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Yay! I just talked to the leasing agent at the Celebration in Celebration, Florida. We locked into the moving date of Tuesday, April 8th! She is going to send us the lease to sign via FedEx, so it should be here very soon. I'm so excited! We are in the unit I mentioned before - the lakefront one. Hehe, I'm so excited! I assume we will leave KC on April 7th and drive down, probably spend one night in southern Georgia, and get an early rise to move everything on the 8th. It's very strange not getting to see the unit before I move in, but I assume it is nice. The other floorplan we looked at was gorgeous, and this one is larger and even on the lakefron, so I'm sure that it will be great. I was toying with the idea of flying down by myself (or maybe grabbing one of my sisters with me,lol) to look at it, but I don't think I'm going to have the time. I'm trying to save money too, and I know I'd be too tempted to go spend money at the parks and stuff, hehe.
I'm excited! ::dance dance dance:: Matt's at work, but I'll tell him the good news when he gets home. Wow - only 62 days! Argh, I need to start getting rid of all this stuff I'm not moving. We're giving away most of our furniture and buying new stuff when we get there. I am going to have a huge "moving" sale of stuff on eBay - clothes, art prints, paintings, etc. to help clear everything out. I'll post details on that later. I desparately need warm-weather clothes - I tend to wear my clothing into the ground, and most of my summer clothes are definitely worn out. Eep, so much to do......

Thank you very much!!!! I'm very excited =) I've been looking for a place where I can take pride in where I live, and Celebration seems just right. I love Disney an awful lot, and I've always read about how Walt had wanted to branch out into planning cities and communities (like his original plans for Epcot). It will make me very proud to be kinda a part of his dream. Wow, I sound like some sort of Disney cult member now...

Anyways - nice to meet you!!!

Hehe - I'll let you know if I think of anything!

I've been scoping out a lot of the 360 degree views (there are a few of them out there on assorted apartment/real estate sites) that show the actual building, which is pretty cool. We took a bunch of pics on our last visit down there (we weren't sure which building we were in yet, so I just took lots of photos of them all, lol). At my sister's house tonight we looked at Celebration with EarthViewer 3D which is a neat program showing the earth with high-resolution satellite photos stitched together. We could see the whole town pretty clearly - it was a lot of fun.

We're so excited about moving - we've both pretty much lived here in Kansas City our whole lives. We've got a lot to do before we move (and only about two months to do it in). Our new place is going to be about twice the size of our current place too, so that will be very nice as well! Ok - I'm rambling, I'd better try to go get some sleep =)
