      Krama - where in Coventry are you? That's where I live too!! LOL! We're just a couple blocks in behind the Future Shop off Coventry Hills way.

        I don't think we're too far from you! Just up Coventry Hills Way, past the park. Too funny. The commute downtown has been hard for me to get used to. We moved from Westgate in the SW and I could get from my door to my desk in 20 mins...now it takes me about 45!

          LOL, you totally pass by my street every day then I'm sure! Do you drive downtown for work or take the bus?? We've used the 116 express sometimes but I hate that it doesn't travel in the opposite direction (clockwise) through our community! Otherwise we take the 301 which is about 25 min in the morning so not too bad. the evenings are still long though

          I hear you about the faster commute from the SW though. I used to live just up Bow Trail by Walmart and it was SO fast!! I miss living in that area and we may look back there when we're ready to move again in a year or two.

          If you're ever driving around there and see a brindle boxer with a coat and dog booties on then stop and say hi because that's me!!!

            Thanks everyone for the congrats! We've been wanting to buy our own place for a while now so this is a long time coming! Lots of saving for the down payment and things like that, but it's finally happening. :)

            We bought in New Brighton, the brand new area in faaaar SE. LOL. It's by Cranston and Copperfield. The nice thing is, it has a direct bus to downtown!!! And I've heard from my friend who takes it that it's great and there are always empty seats all the way to downtown. I'm hoping it will work out well. I currently take the C-Train...and I hate it!
            It's a 2 storey home, corner lot and has a 2 car attached garage. It's got a really nice bonus room on the 2nd floor (one of my favorite parts.) :)
            Can't wait to move in!

              Is it a Cardel home by any chance? A brand new build? I just ask because my girlfriend works for Cardel and I know that she's been busy with homes down there for a while :) That'll be awesome having a direct bus from your area too, especially one that has seats! That's a rare occasion for my ride home.

                Cara, I have some good friends in New Brighton and Mackenzie town so we're always doing the commute from far NW to far SE! You house sounds exactly like the one we bought! Corner lot, bonus room, everything.

                  I love having a corner lot!! Honestly I've almost always lived in one, since I was about nine years old! Okay there was the odd year in the middle there during school or when I was living on my own that I had an apartment or something but aside from that, always been on the end. Our backyard is SO much bigger than our neighbors too which I love :)

                    For some reason I didn't get all the auto. updates on this thread today to my email.

                    Congratulations Cara! That is so exciting!

                    Kayley and Meghan...creepy. We've been in Harvest Hills for 5 years, and I also lived up here during high school...too long ago to mention. I'm sure we've bumped in to eachother a time or two. I also used to work at one of your local bars during school (o-kay, and for 5 years after I finished too).

                    When are we all going to get together? Maybe when the Feb. brides get back from Jamaica?
