Under Contract X 2

It's been such a roller coaster of a week+.  We're under contract on our house that was for sale and also on a new one to buy!!  I still can't believe it and I am just waiting for something to go terribly wrong after the past week of hoorahs and FMLs.

Last Tuesday we had buyers fall through and had to cancel our offer on the house we wanted to buy (it was a contingent offer) and we were so bummed.

Thursday we got another offer on our house and sent off our 2nd offer to buy the same house we've been eyeballing.

Friday we found out our new buyer's financing fell through.  They were still scrambling to find somebody who could get them a loan because they really wanted our house, but in the meantime our Realtor put our house back on the market, and pulled our offer on the house we want, aaaagain.

Saturday morning our Realtor held an open house and a family went through who really liked it, and... offer #3!!  Under contract again thus we drew up offer #3 on the same house we want, and sent it off!

Snip snap snip snap.
Everything in my whole life reminds me of The Office.

I still watch it daily while making dinner.

Our house we're selling was inspected yesterday and for the most part it went okay, just a list of a million nit picky items that we're waiting to hear back from the buyers about, so we're not out of the woods yet, and Monday we have our inspection on the new place.

But NOW it is time for a road trip down memory lane of our first home!!

We moved into it in May, four years ago, and it was very yellow and extra wallpapery.  We changed that all and it took awhile, but it was so fun to do together.

^The curtains were really nice and custom, but the previous owners had dogs and they had been peed on a lot.  They must have had male dogs.  :P

Brought our first little baby boy home here!

Had numerous holidays and gatherings here!

Swam the heck out of the beautiful pool!

And now I have made myself sad.

It has been the best house ever and I am going to miss it immensely!  It is beautiful and chuck full of memories, and the new soon to be owners will be very lucky to make more here.

Here's to a smooth next month so we can move into the next beauty.

I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but it is hard.


  1. It's always sad to leave a place, but you'll have lots of new memories to create in the new space soon!!
