House Shopping

is torture..

I don't think it's any secret that I've been dying to own a home.
I think I mention it in roughly 7 out of every 10 posts on this little blog of mine.

We've been looking for over a year to find the perfect house...
which might I add does NOT exist.

If there was ever a time to buy, it is now. So the pressure is on.
The trick is that I'm not actually buying the home, Justin will be doing that.
I guess the process is a little more relaxing to me.
However, we would be splitting all the bills but my name will just not appear on the mortgage.
I'd be silly to do that without a ring on my finger & I know that. 

Back in December, he put an offer in on a house. 
Since there was already an offer, it went in as a backup offer. A back up offer is when there is already an offer in but if the buyer backs out at anytime, you're the next offer they look at. 

The chances were slim, but we got a call on Tuesday telling us that the other buyer backed out!
They countered his offer back to the listed price (BOO), but after taking another walk through the house, Justin signed. Now we just have to wait for the final approval.
In as little as 3 months, we could be decorating a home. 
How fun to think about. 
Of course, I've been scouring Pinterest for all sorts of Home Decor ideas so my apologies if you're a follower :)
