So I’ve been keeping a secret….sort of. We’ve been house hunting for the past few months. Even going so far as making an offer only to be outbid or not chosen out of a list of others. I was recently talking to a friend about the stress of buying the house and he had the best idea….”Can we just date the house?” I mean that’s what we do to find our significant other and buying a house is just as important. Hower, unfortunately there is not yet an app for that. So this house buying expedition wwe’ve been on has been a little crazy. I knew more of what I DID NOT want than what I wanted. I had a huge list of things I DID NOT want.
Anyways, when I was in Chicago Brian called to tell me about this house that was PERFECT. It had everything I wanted and was just the right size. He sent me video and pictures. I too loved the house and we talked about looking at it when I got home. Then an offer was put out. SO in between my meetings in Chicago I got a message from Brian saying he was “thiking” about putting an offer down on the house…..a house I had yet to see in person. When I finally had a chance to listen to my voicemails he THEN proceeded to tell me, “Well Kas I upped the offer.” PAUSE. My husband went from “thinking” about an offer to “upping” the offer. On Feb. 13th which just so happen to be my birthday I got the message, “WE GOT THE HOUSE!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
So to recap we bought a house. A house that I have YET to set foot in because I was on a different trip when they did inspections. I have seen every inch of the house due to technology including: pictures, video, and FaceTime, but have yet to see it in person……and I’m totally ok with that. It’s literally not even 2 miles away from both the kiddos’ schools. We close in 9 days. We are in final closing now so I can SCREAM from the rooftops about how excited I am. We have been living with my mother-in-law to save for the house and to help them out with HER mother-in-law, but now we are getting back to our family and I couldn’t be more happier…Now who is ready to see the house? Check out the pics below and all I can say is #ThatWoodFloorTho (FYI The pink room is Gabe’s and will be painted Slate Grey and the baby room is Bela’s and will be painted Turquoise)
