The finish line is in sight!

We got a call from our realtor this morning informing us that we are officially in underwriting and we'll close on the house some time next week! I am so excited to finally move into the house I've been daydreaming about and space planning for and driving by at least once every other day. We've been lucky to only have a few little hiccups along the way so we can close quickly.

It's been so hard living in this apartment knowing that a spacious five bedroom house is sitting vacant just a few blocks away. The kids are so cooped up and it's getting worse every day as we get more and more buried under mountains of moving boxes. It's also been difficult not really knowing when we're moving. I'm such a planner and it makes me crazy not having an exact moving date.

Now that we know we're for sure closing next week I'll be spending my weekend packing and buying drapery rods and researching which fridge to buy. Fun stuff!

I'm so excited to finally be in our own home! It feels like such a long time coming and part of me can't believe it's really happening. I feel so grateful that Sean and I can purchase a house for our kids to grow up in and that we'll finally have enough space to spread out!

This is probably the last post I'll make until we move. As soon as we get somewhat settled I'll post an update with pictures of our new place. Wish us luck!

I love it, I am so happy for you, I have always loved moving. It's so much fun setting up house, finding a place for everything to go, decorating, (even though it took 6 months to get pictures on the wall when we moved up here :) Have fun and don't stress out.
