A Wife Loved Like The Church

One Week Before We Move

Posted on: March 24, 2011

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how we found a house, put in an offer and had the offer accepted in less than 48 hours. As with a lot of other life things, housing buying can be tricky. Between finances, paperwork, inspections, schedules, etc., anything can go wrong at any time. So, in an effort to not put my hope in the wrong place, or to hype anything up, I haven’t written about our move.

But it’s happening.

While we haven’t signed the closing paperwork, everything is set {finances approved, money in the bank} and ready to go for next week. We are having a few scheduling issues arise, but we think they should be smoothed over {for those of you who want the boring info – the short of it is – we are set to close on the 31st, but our locked in interest rate ends on the 30th, so we need to figure out which day to close}.

Here are just a few pictures of my favorite things in the house:

Look at that beautiful {big} kitchen! It overlooks the living room and backyard. Sigh.

The girls' room. Already painted girly pink and everything!

A playscape! Heart be still, the playscape stays! I am one happy mama {with two happy little girls}.

While we still don’t own the house, we are pretty certain everything is going to go through as expected. Which means, come this time next week, we will be in our new home, starting some wonderful new adventures! I cannot wait!

*If you’d like to see the rest of the house, let me know and I can email you a link to the tour {it has our address and I don’t want that on my blog}.

Beautiful! I love it (especially the kitchen and the backyard!).

All the details that go into buying a house boggle my mind. But I’m glad it’s going smoothly so far, and hope that the scheduling issues all get worked out. πŸ™‚

Wow! It’s beautiful! What a kitchen! Sounds like you’ll have lots of natural lighting for good food photos!

Haha, I was thinking the same thing…’cause I have ZERO natural lighting in my kitchen! πŸ˜€ Yay, Sarah!

SO excited for you!!! The house looks beautiful, and I know how excited you are since we are in the same boat πŸ™‚ Good luck figuring out the interest rate timing–my husband has many new gray hairs from the whole should we lock/when should we lock? dilemma… Ah, being a grown-up–so scary and exciting at the same time!

love the kitchen!! ps. when i worked in the mtg business they often could “extend the lock” for a few days with a small fee. that was so like 10 years ago πŸ™‚ but they might be able to do something like that again? ?? not sure. just a thought. i’m sure you will have the entire place unpacked and settled at the end of the weekend πŸ™‚

Thanks ladies! Oh the kitchen is my favoritest room of all! πŸ™‚

L – we are looking into “buying” a day, but it all depends if our broker can get it or not. He was looking into it today, but I haven’t heard yet.

Oh my goodness, I am SO in love with your kitchen-to-be! Seriously, all that space! LOVE!

We have bought two houses in the US since living here in the DR. You know that there are lots of papers to notarize. We have to use the US embassy to have them notarized and they charge $50 per notarized paper!!! Not to mention the hoola hoops of waiting at very specific hours and only on 2 certain days. craziness

oh and beautiful home!

Any kitchen with granite and an area for bar stools is a dream kitchen for me! Bonus that it overlooks the backyard! The backyard play stuff and fenced in looks AMAZING too!! How excited! Happy for you!

YEA!! I am so excited for you all. The house is beautiful. I would love for you to send me the link so I can see the rest of it! I know the girls will love that backyard!

Wow! The house is gorgeous!! I’m sure you are thrilled!
