Options.

Our house has been under contract for the last 12 days, but I didn't want to jinx anything by sharing the news on the blog. But as of 8:00 p.m. tonight, the option period expired!  We will be closing in about 3 weeks.  Yikes!  To celebrate this evening, Justin picked up a bottle of champagne on his way home from work.    


The whole process (offer, inspection, appraisal, etc.) has gone super well.  And right now, I'm knocking on wood that I didn't just derail the process by saying that.  In case you're wondering where we're moving, that makes two of us.  We are going to find a short-term apartment by the weekend and be patient while we try find the perfect house for us.  We've looked at a few recently, but nothing we want to make an offer on.

So if I my posts are more sporadic than normal (if that's even possible), just know I'm likely having a blast packing.  Hope your Monday was equally as exciting!

  4. Emily!!!!!!!!!!! That's fantastic. I have been wanting to ask but didn't want to jinx anything either. Congrats. I knew it would fly off the market. It's too pretty to pass up. And good for you. Take your sweet time. . .I always feel like after you have lived in and loved a home.. you are better equipped to know what you really want in the next home.
