Update: News About the House!

OK, OK... You're never going to believe it... remember the house that we lost because of the inspection? WELL, NOW WE ARE BACK UNDER CONTRACT! 


I got a message from my realtor last week saying the sellers were ready to do what they needed to do to sell the house. They've cleaned the chimney, fixed the rotted wood and put on a brand new roof! So, we made a deal and are back under contract with the closing date being in October. 

What happens next? Getting the loan approved. I went to the bank of Friday to sign the mortgage papers, then I had a huge emotional breakdown because of all of the papers I had to sign, then my boyfriend took me to eat Mexican food because it's the best stress food, then I calmed down again because cheese dip can solve all problems.

It wasn't until today that I got excited for the first time again since making an offer on the house the first time. I know we still have to get the house appraised and loan approved, but the idea of moving into a house that is MINE is exciting. There's also a lot of stress about packing, moving, needing to paint, decorating, being able to afford to buy new things for the house, etc. All of that will work out like it should. 

For weeks I prayed that God would bless me with the right house I was supposed to buy and I really think this is it. It was kind of a fluke that I went to go see it when I walked in it felt like home, and it has all the space and room that we need. It even has a fireplace which I didn't even know I would want until I saw this house with one. 

This also means I get my office back that I blogged about the first time we were under contract! 

Going from a baby room to a chic office look! 

Does anyone have any house advice? Any DIY blogs that you follow? Let me know!
