This weekend we threw a giant, but exciting, curveball in our house hunting adventure. On Friday, we heard back about our offer on the house.
It was actually GOOD news; however, suddenly I realized that I NEVER thought the seller would accept our offer and I actually had been subconsciously hoping that they would reject it because I was not feeling good about it. The house was cute, but it had REALLY tiny rooms–I mean teeny tiny. I worried that we would feel “trapped” in a few years.
Last week, I often found myself secretly lusting over another house we saw. Granted, this house, which I lovingly termed “The Ugly Ducking,” did not have quite the curb appeal–but it was a total SWAN on the inside. (It is what is on the inside that counts, right Mumsie?!)
So here is our “Ugly Duckling” House:
It looks small from the outside right? Well it is GIANT. It has 5 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 guest baths and oodles of closet space.
And, it has a GREAT kitchen with a gas stove (the most important part!)
Chase stole all of the pictures off the camera last night, so I only have a couple. I promise I will share more later!
So we rescinded our offer on the first house and put in an offer on this house! Lots of paper signing commenced–yet again:
We then had a double celebration of both our Engagement Anniversary AND our 2nd House Offer!
(Worst picture EVER. Can you tell I was going on about 5 hours of sleep?)
Thanks, Chase for “putting a ring on it” 5 years ago!
Also I would like to give 2 Birthday shout-outs! Yesterday was Erica’s Birthday from For the Sake of Cake. I am so glad I have had the pleasure to actually meet Erica in person! I hope you had a WONDERFUL day!
And, in the non-blogger world, yesterday was also my father-in-law’s birthday:
We are SO blessed to have you in our lives! I WISH we could have been there to celebrate with you! We love you!
