Good News!

I have news!  On Saturday our fourth counter offer was accepted by the seller and we are officially under contract! Woo!  Our home inspection is on Thursday, and if everything goes well we should close in May sometime.  I was completely shocked when Dar called me on Saturday to say they had accepted our offer.  We were so far apart price wise, and he didn’t seem to be budging but I guess he was as tired of the process as we were.  The place needs a lot of updating, but the floor plan is great and the basement is finished here’s my favorite room.

The kitchen and living room are one big open great room with huge vaulted ceilings and skylights, which will be perfect for entertaining.  Eventually.  I’ve already started remodeling that kitchen in my head, I have big plans for it.  This is the basement,

And along with the house, that 9 ft pool table is also now ours.  We figured we might as well see if the seller was interested in getting rid of it, and apparently he was.  I absolutely hate that wood paneling, but I figure that’s not too difficult to do something about.  Anyway, so fingers crossed nothing huge turns up in the inspection!

The rest of the weekend was pretty eventful too.  Friday night I met up with Kacy, we had dinner and drinks and then wandered into Trader Joe’s and did some drunk grocery shopping.  I ended up with some really random crap, but it’s all good.  I’m sure I’ll use it eventually.

Saturday I took myself on a date to see The Hunger Games.  It was my first time venturing to a movie alone, and I have to say I didn’t hate it.  I didn’t need to share my skittles with anyone, and no one tried to talk to me during intense moments.  The only weird part was trying to find my seat in a dark theater when I had to run out to the bathroom.  There’s not other person marking it, haha.  Anyway, the movie was really good, although the book is  better but I think they did an awesome job with it.

Saturday night, my roommates and I ventured out in the rain for a girly night of entertainment.  It was a “Passion” party, and was absolutely hilarious.  I don’t think one girl left the house without buying at least something.  Good times. Yesterday, I did nothing except sit on the couch relaxing.  It was fantastic.

Now here I am back at work, anxiously anticipating Thursday. I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!
