Maybe I waited so long to write about this because I am overwhelmed by it. And, by overwhelmed I just mean super excited. So, excuse me if it’s brief. For some reason, I tend to punk out on big posts like this.
So, we bought a house. Sight unseen. I pulled a Dwija…
Turns out we love it, so that’s good. We are going to leave most of the colors just the way they are because, well, they are nice. I will admit to being slightly bummed about not painting because I was looking forward to it, but the previous owners just have similar taste to me. So, you know.
To make up for the not painting, I am in the process of looking for area rugs, a new kitchen table and arm chairs. And, um, turns out Walmart and La-Z-Boy are where it’s at. Who knew they were hip now?
Enough talk. On to pictures:
There are also bedrooms and bathrooms. Don’t worry. I just left those out because they are, well, bedrooms and bathrooms.
So, funny story about this house. We were still in MN, and we hadn’t seen the house, but we were considering putting in an offer. Ellen and I were FaceTiming with my mom one night, and my dad ran into the room with my mom saying, “Jenna! Your house is on TV.” So, my mom turned on their local news, and I watched it from MN over the iPad. Turns out the pregnant woman who lived in the house couldn’t make it to the hospital in time, so her husband emergency delivered the baby at home.
Would it be weird if I asked them where she delivered it? I can’t not.
So, there’s the house. We are in love with it.
Look at me – all grown up.
p.s. Is $400 too much to spend on an area rug? Even if you really really love it and promise to never buy another one?
Some of you were wondering why we be so crazy. Why did we put in an offer without seeing a house? Well, here’s why:
1. We wanted to be in a house before this baby gets here, and house buying takes a long time, obvs. As it stands, we will only get into the house about 4 weeks before I’m due. Eek.
2. Being the real estate blogger I am (no, really, I am), I know that inventory is low and buyers are abundant. Houses like this don’t last long.
3. Confession: We did send my parents, armed with an iPad for FaceTiming, to check out the house to make sure we weren’t buying a piece.
Crazy people, I tell you.
