Hello world! Obligatory, sorry I haven’t written or posted in like 4 months but life has been so busy!
To catch you up, I went on my honeymoon for two weeks and then came back and had SO MUCH to catch up and do with work. And life got in the way and I didn’t update the blog, oops.
Well I’m here to say I’m trying to be better, but I will admit I’m having a really hard time finding the time in between work and trying to exercise daily/be healthy/love my husband/walk the dogs/and everything else. I know, #firstworldproblems.
The other thing that’s been keeping me busy… is we are buying a house!
I’ve been keeping it a bit of a secret, mainly because I’m so paranoid something will go wrong and we won’t actually get it, but I think it’s the real deal this time. This is the 3rd house we’ve put an offer on so that’s part of my fear.
The first one we loved, it was historic and unique, but did the home inspection and found out the roof needed to be replaced (for $18k no biggie) among some other major things that would need to be fixed. The second one we LIKED and it was in a good neighborhood but weren’t obsessed with (and I liked it more than Matt did), we put an offer on it anyway because we thought that was as good as it would get for us, and the owner counter-offered literally a dollar above the asking price! WTF? No. Which was higher than we wanted to pay, and quite frankly I didn’t believe the house was worth that, especially when we weren’t in love with it.
Then the 3rd house came into the picture, in a completely different neighborhood than what we were looking at and basically brand new at two years old. We walked in and BOTH of us immediately fell in love! I didn’t think I was going to have that feeling looking for a house honestly. It was like wedding dress shopping lol. We knew this was definitely the one, it was huge, updated and modern and had the perfect pool and backyard. It wasn’t on top of the neighbors and had some privacy. And it is also literally 2 minutes away from my work!
We are set to close and move the end of next month, August. So please send us good vibes that we get through the closing process okay and we can get into our dream house ASAP! I’m like fantasizing about laying on my pizza raft in that beautiful pool.
