We are quite excited to announce that A: Thanks to some dear friends and family, we have raised the funds necessary to make it through closing, which B: will be on March 16, assuming that C: we actually make it all the way through to closing and get the full apprval for the mortgage because D: the offer was accepted. As my realtor said:
"They accepted your offer. It looks like you are buying a house!!!!"
Holy shit. That is my response.
Thank you all so much for your input, support, and help (and really, not just on this...you guys always give me great advice!). Keep those fingers crossed...still have a hurdle in front of us!
Now I'm all into looking up how to put up a fence, what kind of fence we want, being shocked at the cost of said fence, and being excited that we have these things to consider. And paint. OMG, paint. I am researching faux finishes, and considering colors. And how to refinish hardwood floors. I am so excited. Excited to not feel terrible about drilling a hole in the wall. Excited to PAINT THE WALLS! Excited to no longer have roommates. Seriously. Done with that!
Oh, wow...March is turning into a big month for us. Closing on the house on the 16th, moving on the 17th (St. Patty's day and our 5 year Dateiversary), and P's 1st birthday on the 20th! I see drunk movers...EEP! Last time we moved it turned into an all night party...oh, boy was that next day rough, LOL.
You guys, we are BUYING A HOUSE! What???? Wow....
Why does this feel more adult that having a child? Whatever the reason, I have not been this stressed out since IVF 2 years ago. Not quite 2 years ago.
Keep sending those well wishes our way!
And just in case you missed last week's post, here is our house-to-be! Check out that kitchen!!!! Woot!
