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?
Our 4th of July Manager BBQ Friday evening.

Now head on over to Dana,
Leeann& Sami's blogs to link up & not be anti social.
And don't forget to catch the Bachelorette tomorrow night so you can dish with us for Meg & I's Tuesday link up par-tay. We're even planning to have tequila shots. I mean, what's a party without tequila followed by nakedness? Not my kind of part, that's for sure.
Hope you all had a relaxing weekend full of sunshine & ice cold cocktails!
