Happenings.

1. Thanks so much for all of your input. It is helpful and I enjoyed hearing your stories of how you found your house.

2. To answer some of your questions, we are pre-approved already and we do have the month-to-month option. As well as a three-month and six-month option. Decisions, decisions.

3. We actually found three houses we fell in love with. The first house went pending a few days after we saw it, the second house we loved went pending yesterday, and the third house was beautiful but needed way too much work. New windows, new roof, new heater, and not to mention new carpet (just say no to mustard yellow). If we wanted to sell in 5 to 10 years it just wouldn't be worth it.

4. To clear up a bit of confusion, the house I posted here was the house actually used for the show. It is not the house we are considering buying, it just slightly resembles the DC house. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

5. The Dawson's Creek look alike house is still on the market and we are scheduled to see it next week. As much as I love it, I'm not sure it will be "the one." It's a foreclosure and is being sold as is which makes us hesitant. From the pictures online it seems to need work, but we'll check it out and keep you posted.

6. I have two big events this weekend and I'm getting stressed. I have some 14 hour days ahead of me. UGH.

7. I watched Invictus last night with my rugby-lvoing South African and it was so good! I didn't expect to like it because I'm not a big fan of Clint Eastwood's movies but I loved it.

8. It was really neat to watch this with Garth because he was in South Africa when these events occurred. It took him back and made him miss South Africa.

9. Today is my little brother's 23rd birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRAD!

Happy Birthday little brother Brad!!

I want to see Invictus too - we wanted to see it over Christmas, but never had a chance to go.

I can't wait to hear about the DC house!

How exciting that you are going to look at the actual DC house!
Look on the bright side - no matter how that turns out! Not too many people can say they have been in that house!

I know that things will work out with buying a house and it sounds like you have a little of what happened to us going on. We would have our heart set on something and then it would be pending because of another offer. We just told ourselves that it wasn't meant to be. Good luck with the hunt and keep us posted! I know you will find something perfect for the two of you.

Happy Birthday to your little brother!

Aww happy birthday to him! Also..just wanted to let you know that I am super excited for you guys to find the right house. I havent commented much on your house posts because I am somewhat jaded on the whole HOUSE thing right now, but I am THRILLED that you two will find the right place for you! I just dont have any advice...because, well, I clearly know nothing about houses.

Don't lose heart and keep praying for God to give you guys the perfect place for you. As always being mindful of finances, family, preferences and mostly - not jumping into something without thinking it through.

Praying daily you guys have clear guidance and very open or very shut doors on your house hunting!

Happy Birthday to your brother!

You never know what God has up his sleeve, this how could very well be “the one”. You just never know. So glad you’re going to check it out anyway! Happy birthday to your brother!! :)

I'm still so excited for you guys finding your new house! I know it is such a process, especially when houses you fall in love with go before you can say, ooh love it, but God has your house out there, that just means those houses weren't the ones! Happy Bday to your bro :) and I hope your weekend goes by so quickly!
