My followers on twitter already now but now I must tell the world. I bid on the condo & THEY ACCEPTED!!! I have officially bought my very first home!!! I’ll admit I pinched myself about 50 times after I signed the paper placing the offer on the table & starting the paperwork for the mortgage because I was petrified that I’d wake up…but it’s real. The previous owners came down in price & I snatched it right up. I got pre-approved for my mortgage, one of my best friends father’s agreed to be my closing lawyer & the rest is history. A new chapter of my life has begun. CJ told me he was proud of me, it made me so happy.
Somehow in the past 2 months my whole life changed. I wrote how I needed to find a new guy, new job, a place to live that isn’t my parents house, & basically a new life. Well I can check some of things of my list. I never thought this year would be the time I’d move out on my own. I’m still in shock. It’ll hit me when I move in probably. I should be able to move in some point early September which is great because it will be so much cooler. There is so many possibilities that I can do with the space that I can’t wait. I promise this won’t turn into a design blog but I will be tuning in what I do every now & again. The store Home Goods is going to be my new best friend. Also CJ is a very handy man & I gave him privileges to help me around the house. Hehe.
I can't believe I'm going to have my own place just like Carrie Bradshaw!! I got so many people to tell so much to do omg! I already started looking at furniture prices & home décor stuff. I can’t wait to get decorating ideas & see what the labor day sales are going to be & search tag sales & thrift stores for some odds & ends & go to Home Goods and…*Whew* I have to remember to breathe. I can’t believe it. My Aunt Mary said I can use her driveway to do a garage sale because she lives on a very busy street so I’m going to start on getting rid of my pack rat junk. I really don’t need every tv guide & every nick nack I have found on my travels. I gotta pack but the great thing is it’s right down the road in walking distance from my parents. Yeahh I know *RED FLAG* going up that it’s near my parents but in the past year I’ve had surgery for my gall bladder removed & fibroids removed so I have to accept I will be always be near my parents but it’s my place & that means the world to me.
I feel like a grown-up. I want to stand a lil taller, smile a lil brighter, & dream a lil bigger. It’s such a wonderful feeling to do something like this. Thank you everyone for your encouragement here & on twitter. I needed the help & I’m truly grateful that this is happening. Ohh so much to do, so much planning, & so much smiling. WOOHOO!!!! I hope everyone has a great week & I’m pushing forward, never backward. Can’t wait to see how this all pans out. Til Tommorrow…
