May 1 (today)

And as of today, there are 24 days until my closing date.

Remember how, when this all started, I had my eye on a townhouse that was still being built and was the same price as the house I'm actually buying? Well, I found out yesterday that they increased the price on that house and I wouldn't have been able to afford it. At first I questioned my choice to buy the house that I'm buying instead of waiting for the newly built house and now I'm so freaking glad I didn't wait!

Dear Guardian Angel, YOU ROCK!

ALSO, I forgot to tell you all yesterday. Until tomorrow, you can take 20% off your purchase in my shop by entering the coupon code YAYSPRING at checkout. Go on. You know you wanna!


  1. whoa! I remember home buying being stressful, but I don't remember millions of meetings! They do things differently in the south.

  2. I didn't have to take any classes to buy a house! I would have stayed a renter. :)

  3. I'm going to be renting for the rest of my life......

  4. That sounds stressful as hell. It will be all worth it though!

  5. I have mail for you, but I think I'm going to wait and send it to your new house. Obviously because that would be exciting and not because I am lazy.
