I'm sure you know this if you've bought a house before, but wow, it's a little stressful, isn't it? ;) I'm so excited so it's not a problem, but the week has been going by fast and all of a sudden we're trying to schedule a home inspection and buy our loan and fax and scan all kinds of things back to Realtor and lender... yikes!
We are dying of excitement, though. I can't wait till we have our inspection next week (hopefully) and get to see the inside of the house for real. Last time I shared pics, and last time I went inside, we had cabinets and some floors but not much really, and there were no doors on the cabinets. Now, the doors were all locked last time I was there, but look at it coming along! (through the window...)
I have also spent literally hours on Craigslist in the past week, shopping around for the perfect... well, almost everything. I also sold our leather IKEA (via Craigslist) couch and our cute vintage table and chairs, and listed some other things, too. So I'm still coming out way ahead, but I've bought dining chairs, bar stools, and more dining chairs. You'll see, it's gonna be great! I think.
It's sooo hard to pick things out before I've ever seen the space completely done, so it's probably pretty stupid of me to try, but I'm so excited and want it to look as done as possible as soon as possible! I am planning to wait before buying the big ticket items, although I have my eye on the perfect couch from Macy's and the perfect rug from Overstock, just not sure if they'll work. And if we'll have any money left after buying the house. J/k. I think. ;)
But, the house is almost done, and less than a week till I get to see the inside and all the colors and finishes. It was exciting to see through the window because I think we have our floors in already, though covered in protective paper. Oh! And we have landscaping!!
Cannot wait. Aaaah! =)
