Today's The Day - Perhaps?

Today we will be putting in an offer on our first house. I'm so excited!!!!!!! I can't wait. Did I ever tell you how much I enjoy filling out paperwork and reading long forms? My whole life has been leading up to this day right here.

I don't know what to expect. We have a great realtor and he is going to call me this morning before 10 to get the ball rolling. It was a little touch and go there for awhile because he set us up with another realtor in his office and I didn't really get the best feeling about her. She didn't locate a house that we really wanted and I just happened to drive by it and call the realtor on the sign and the house was still for sale! Who misses that? She was like "I can't find the house anywhere on the MLS. It must have sold and they never took it offline." Shhhhhya right! So in my eyes she's coming off a bit flaky and I finally told the owner that our trust is in him and not her so if he could help us out that would be great.

Later today he will be walking us through how to negotiate a great offer on the house. If all goes well, then I will be going by there today and taking tons of pics to post on here. I don't want to do it yet just in case we don't get the place and I don't want to be the weird lady who takes pictures of a house she doesn't own.

If this works out, you will soon be meeting the newest addition to our family. Jump for joy with me in a big group hug!! Hooray for putting in offers on a house!

Just Breath...

Okay so today is a great day. And here is why.

Awhile back (almost 2 years now) we have been wanting to buy a house and as of today, we are officially really truly honestly in the market and actively searching for a house.

WOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!

I can't believe it and I am still coming to terms with it. I just got off the phone with our lender not even an hour ago and can't wait until Michael comes home so that we can celebrate somehow. I am sick and currently not in the mood to celebrate but at the same time I am bursting at the seams with excitement. I can.not.wait. until we find that special place to lay our heads at night. That place that has eluded us for so long. The spot that we can paint, tear, nail, and stucco to our hearts content without fear of losing our security deposit. Haha!

Well that is my big news for today. Mark this date. Tuesday Dec. 20, 2011. The day we started growing up.

Giggle.
