Another weekend comes to a close...

But this weekend was one for the books.

After viewing the house for the third time Friday eve, put an offer in Saturday morning and after back and forth negotiating, he accepted our offer Sunday afternoon.




We bought ourselves a house, folks.

And I have to admit, I'm full of anxiety as I type this up this quiet Sunday evening while the dog & Jon snore it up next to me.

I know it's right. I know we love it. I know we made a very educated decision. But I just have this lingering anxiety thats hindering me from taking a breath that step one is complete, and we're well on our way to making it official. Maybe because the process (so far) has been eerily smooth? Maybe because it's a big chunk of change? Maybe because it's a super permanent commitment? Maybe because I'm fearful of the financial commitment that being a home owner brings? I don't know...I can't quite put my finger on it.

One thing I do know is that I have ALWAYS been a nervous nelly, al-ways. And not to get super religious on ya 'all, but the only thing that gives me peace is spending some time talking to my main man up above. As my Mama always says, you gotta let go and let God.

So for all you homeowners out there,is this a normal feeling that I'm having? Just a reaction to the home buying process? A little bit of nerves?

Nerves and all, what we have decided is that if everything is meant to be, then the next 7 weeks will be seamless and we'll close on the house August 31st. So keep the hubs and I in your prayers that the ride continues to be smooth as butta!

Enough with the seriousness...geez, Anne.

It's FOTO time!




My BFF in Seattle spotted this lamp & thought of me. For the new house? Maybe the living room?

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend full of sunshine & ice cold cocktails!

What an exciting time! I think it's totally normal to be nervous. Being a homeowner is such a big responsibility but it offers such big rewards too. Good luck with the rest of the process. I hope it all goes super smooth for you all :)

Cute pics- Looks like y'all had a great time at the BBQ!

Such a sweet pup. Oh, and that lamp!!! What a find!

My hubs and I are in the process of buying a new home and it's always stressful...it's not just you. But once you're in, it gets easier. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a smooth transaction for you!

Congrats! Not a home owner but I can guess that the feelings you're having are completely normal as they arise with any big change.

YAY. The house purchasing process was so nerve racking. The worst part...going to the bank to get the check needed for the signing. I mean that was too much money for me to not be nervous. Best of luck!!!

Alyssa said...

I am SO excited for you!!! All of those feelings are totally normally, by the way. It's an exciting/nerve racking kind of thing.

Sam said...

It's normal to get a little nervous :)It sounds like you have done your homework. Congrats!

Congratulations!!!! I don't have any good comments about home ownership since we are way upside down on the house we own back in Indiana while renting here in FL. We got screwed by the housing market, bleghhh. But renting now I miss lots of things... especially painting walls... and putting nails in them, LOL. There is so much opportunity when you own!!! It will be a great experience, and I can't wait for pictures!!!!! And definite yes to the penis chandy.
