No Place Like Home

So lots of stuff has been going on here.  For starters, we sold our house!  {YAY!!!}  But the new buyer wants to close in 30 days {BOO!!!}.  So that meant some rearranging at our end a bit since 30 days isn’t enough time to build a house like we planned.

Its so strange how things pan out sometimes.  We had a whirlwind of a week with several showings.  Even with all of the showings, I was skill really negative about the whole process, mostly just because after several months of having our house on the market, I was tired of the right buyer NOT walking through our door.

But it happened…and it happened FAST!  The buyer came, looked and sent us an offer almost immediately!  Moral of the story: There is a buyer out there for every house. You just need to have the patience to stick it out until he/she comes through your door!  I was truly ready to give up and accept our fate of staying in this house forever!

Once the excitement wore off, we had to get down to business and had a marathon house hunting day last week.  We saw many beautiful homes but in the end, the first house we looked at turned out to be “THE ONE”.  Here’s a little sneak peek:

It was really the only house that didn’t need anything done to it…move in ready 100%.  We were nervous to put our offer in since the house wasn’t even on the market for 30 days but in the blink of an eye, the big move was in motion!!!

So excuse any lags in posting for the next few weeks.  There is tons of stuff to pack and things to arrange {like inspections and movers, etc} before we head out of here into our new abode.  And I’m almost 26 weeks pregnant…I definitely don’t move as quickly as I would like these days!

Have a fab Tuesday!  Be sure to check back tomorrow for an Inspiration Board Wednesday Rewind!
