The Moving Chronicles: The Offer


While we spent most of today as a holiday should be spent  – relaxing and getting our FREE Chick-fil-A sandwich for wearing a team t-shirt, we also took one large step in the walk of life.

We put an offer on our first HOUSE!

Just last week I was talking about house hunting. And now we put in an offer. It’s exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time. I feel like those couples on HGTV’s Property Virgins and My First Place. Anxiously awaiting an answer.

While it was nice to be able to go into our real estate agent’s office without the day to day hustle and bustle of office life. It’s also a holiday. A day off. People aren’t answering their phones as quickly as when it’s a “regular” work day. So our fingers are crossed. Toes too. In fact, I think if I could sit with my eyes crossed without the threat of them getting stuck (as my mom would say), I might try that too.

Home ownership is such an exciting thought. Like crossing the threshold into being a “real” adult. Personally, when I think of the word mortgage, I think of my parents. Because that’s what grownups are always talking about. I guess we’ll be included in that pool of people if all goes well! And a reason to buy a shiny new keychain.

And because everything’s better with cupcakes, look at what I made last week:

Happy Labor Day!

    Yum! Those cupcakes look heavenly!

    Chick-fil-a is my favorite fast food restaurant – I just wish there was one close to me. The closest one is 35 miles away. :(

    Good luck with the whole house hunting thing and congrats on your first offer! Sending positive thoughts your way. :)
