Hi Friends! Sorry for the missed post yesterday. Nick & I were getting house business taken care of. Oh, update on that for anyone interested! :) Our offer got accepted!! You sort of feel like a champ if your offer 'wins' over others. We've since gotten a home inspection and that guy basically told us we needed to call all these other guys in to get issues checked out. There were lots of issues, which we expected. Forgot to mention that the house we're looking at is a foreclosure and we're buying it as-is! They're not paying to fix anything. So that's bummer. But that is what we have been up to. I think I realized through this process that I am a really skeptical person. I don't know why.. We had a foundation specialist come out to look at the foundation, he crawled underneath the house and told us it was fine. But for some reason even afterward I still doubted what he said. I don't want to be skeptical! I think I just need to let go and trust. Anyway, yesterday we went to sign papers for the loan and it was all so exciting but scary at the same time. But I kind of felt like a real grown up ;) Buying a house is kind of crazy. It's cool life experience because once you get a house, now you know how the whole house thing works - it's really not as complicated as I thought it was. Honestly though, I'm not celebrating until the keys are officially in our hand. I haven't let myself get too excited about the whole thing. Don't get me wrong. I love this house! Nick said I treat it like a relationship. I don't want to get hurt by it so I've distanced myself. Our agent & Nick keep asking me, "do you even like this house?" haha. I love it. But I know a bunch of things could go wrong or fall through. So I just don't want to have my heart set on anything. Here are a couple more pics from the other day we were there. Nick likes the hallways and I like the porch! Thanks for sharing in this whole house journey with us.
ANYWAY! So that's that. Next week is reader appreciation week where I will show my great appreciation and love for all you guys - the readers! I hope you'll join in and check back :) There will be daily deals from my shop and daily giveaways and a couple other features.
This weekend we are headed to Sacramento for my grandma's 86th birthday! I'm excited to see family, we have a big family on my mom's side, we don't get to see them a lot but when we do it's a lot of fun. What are you up to this weekend? Any exciting adventures? Or perhaps staying close to home? Either way, I am sure it will be lovely and I hope you all have a splendid weekend! See you next week for the big reader appreciation extravaganza!
