Where have you been? No, it's not where have I been. Where have you been? So my resolution to eat less, blog more is not really working out, but I have decided to give it another whirl. A lot of stuff has been going on, and I have not had time to blog. I will catch you up on the last couple of months.
Twas New Year's Day, and I arrived back to my parents house (roomies!) from a wonderful weekend in Austin. My mom said that her and my dad found the cutest house in the city and we should go drive by. I was in the car before she could finish her sentence. It's safe to say I fell in love at first sight. We went to look at the house a week later, and when we left, I said, "I am going to live there. I don't care if you don't like it." (My roomie went to the showing with me.)
A week later, I thought it wasn't going to happen, as the house was built in the 50's, and I was unsure if the electric was up to par. We called an electrician to go take a look, and the housing got a passing grade. And here I am now. I made an offer on the house January 23rd, we went back in forth a few times and the owner accepted the offer January 24th.
It all happened so fast, but I am going to be a homeowner next Friday, February 25th. I reference this way too much, but it's a definite Jessie Spano moment for me. "I am so excited, I am so excited, I am so scared!"
I am excited to get out on myown again. I am excited about owning my first house. I am excited about getting my social life back and getting a Shih-Tzu, named Muffy Le. But I can't deny I am a little nervous about buying groceries again, doing my own laundry and keeping up a house. It's been real living at home again.
All I can think about is getting the keys and popping a bottle of champagne.
For the past month, my weekends have been spent planning the decor of the house. Heck, I started planning the night I drove by the house! To make this post a little relevant, I will show you one of my favorite things I have purchased so far. I found this amazing coffee table at Wisteria. It was a little out of my price range, but I found it's mini me at World Market.
Introducing my new coffee table on wheels! It's about $600 at Wisteria, and you can get a copy of it at World Market for $200. I have a black belt in bargain hunting. I am concerned that a night of wine might turn into me getting on the coffee table and getting wheeled around the house. Might even wear the Today Show gown.
Feels good to be back and let you know what I have been up to! Just buying a first home.
