I just can't seem to escape the drama. I was in tears this morning because I am so overwhelmed. I...
Ok, so it says Wedding Planner in the Subject because WBC wouldn't let me put anything else....weird.
But, I have the best news,.....we bought a house!!!! We had started looking awhile back, but decided not to get TOO serious until after the wedding. We both had "demands" for the house, so it really limited our search, lol. But hey, when you're spending that much money, you need to get what you want!!
We had looked at quite a few houses, and then we looked at this one. We both loved it so much, I even pictured little kids running around, lol. That was on Friday. On Monday we had my Mom go with us, and she loved it too. We told the realtor we were VERY interested and he said he would call the selling realtor and we could probably get the ball going the following week. Only half an hour later, he called with the answers to a few questions we had and told us that another couple was making an offer. WHAT!!!!! At this point we had decided it was our house, so the thought of someone else buying it about killed us. So we sat down and talked, and put our offer in. That night was awful waiting. But at 8:00AM our agent called to tell us they accepted it!! We got it for $5000 less than asking price, and I guess our offer was $2000 less than what their lowest point was, but the lady said when we came out Friday and she was leaving, that I talked to her and was really nice, and since we were a young couple starting out, that the money meant more to us than to them. Isn't that just amazing???? Gotta love small towns. :)
So about the house. It is on 2.5 acres with mostly yard, but some timber/woods. It's 3 bedroom, with a MIL/bonus room above the garage, so could be 4. 2.5 baths, huge front porch, parlor. It also has built in bookcases(huge to me) and pocket doors. Biggie for me was porch and Philly wanted 2.5 car garage. We both got our wishes. And we wanted in the country, it def is!! It's in the outskirts of the town my Mom and two siblings live, so I will be close to them. We close in 45 days, we are beyond excited. Just goes to prove that when you know, you know. I've posted a few pics, just wanted to share with you all. Hope your planning is going well!!
OH, for my facebook buddies, we haven't posted it yet on there, only family and now you girls know for now!!!! You'll see when the cats out of the bag. :)
