It is amazing how much your life can change in 48 hours.
Sunday, 5:00 AM: Autumn finds out she is pregnant with our second child.
Sunday, 11:00 AM: We visit my parents along with Matt and Cameron. Mom tells us about a house for sale on the end of the street.
Sunday, 1:00 PM: The selling agent agrees to show up and show us the house. We love it. We make an appointment with our agent, Russ Warrick, to talk about it on Monday.
Monday, 1:00 PM: For 3 hours Autumn, Russ, and I discuss all the details with purchasing the house, selling our condo, and getting financing. We talk with Mom and Dad a few hours as well.
Monday, 8:30 PM: We meet Russ at his office, loan pre-qualification letter and deposit check in hand. We go over the offer he wrote, sign and submit it.
Monday, 9:30 PM: We head home, exhausted and dazed from the day's events. Meanwhile, the selling agent calls the seller into the office. They look over and discuss our offer.
Monday, 11:00 PM: Russ calls us to say that they accepted the offer. We call our family to let them know. Close of escrow is June 29th, roughly 3 weeks away.
We just bought a house, when we were not seriously looking 2 days ago. And we found out we are having a baby in that same time period.
The house is amazing! Everything we were looking for. Big and beautiful back yard, hardwood floors throughout, 22 second drive from Mom, Dad and Grandma, out of the city, inexpensive for the area, and much more. It is perfect! Take a look at the new photo album on the sidebar. Note that that is not our furniture inside.
