House Update

We got the papers back today that we were waiting for the other bank to sign. YEA! Then I turned around and sent them to the other have her forward them to our loan processor! Now we wait again. Hopefully not to much longer, only 23 more days till we are suppose to have closing. Our apartment has been rented so we really have to truly get out now. We spent the weekend packing and packing some more. Not to much left to pack mostly the everyday items now, aside from a closet. Tonight we picked up some bar stools that I found on craigslist. They are going to go in our kitchen at our little breakfast nook! I can't wait to get over there and start making it our home!

Crochet Love

So I thought that since my last several posts have been about the house, it was time that I put a crochet post out here. I finished by Granny Stripe blanket that I had been working. There was a lot of yarn left over of certain colors so I went ahead and re-ordered the ones that I got low on and now I am going to make a zig zag afghan out of the rest of them. Today in the mail I got the new Herrschners fall catalog. When I am done with this post I am going to sit with a nice glass of iced tea and pour through it. I already found several projects that I want to make while I was doing a quick browse. Back to my Granny Stripe, I haven't taken a photo of the blanket completed yet, but as soon as I do I will be sure to post it here. I will also post a photo of the zig zag too, I had always had problems with this pattern too, but I think that I finally get it. With the exception that my two end have about 5-7 extra stitches, oh well, trial and error. I have about eight rows done and I don't want to have to rip to I think that I am just going to go with it for now.
Well I think that is it for tonight, I am just too excited about the catalog! I will let you know what I find. Hope everyone has a great night!

Moving Right Along

So tonight we met with our bank and it went really well. I was really nervous about this but our mortgage lender that we are working with quickly put me at ease. Now the next step is to send out the appraiser and then off our paperwork will go. Our payment is going to be less than we original thought that it was going to be which is a great thing, and we qualified for a great discount that the bank is currently running so we won't have to pay any closing costs! We have now started to pack a few things up and are readying ourselves for the big move across the street!

Another Step Closer

I know in the last post I wrote that our offer was accepted, well tonight I got the call that we have our executed contract back! This is great news! Now no one can out bid us on the house. We were a little worried about that since it is a foreclosure. As I said in the last post too, our inspection will be done next week, we are keeping our fingers crossed that it all comes back good. I am hoping since my Dad came with us both times that we looked at the house that everything will be ok. We are so excited, nervous, and scared all at the same time. We can't believe that this is really happening. So without further ado here is our new home.
