We kissed off that short sale house we were waiting for due to safety concerns after that car went through the fence. Then we were totally scrambling to find something else. What we loved about our short sale house (pre crash) was how unique it was and how it wasn't just another track house like the one we live in now. We searched and searched. We looked at everything in our price range. When I say everything. I mean everything. My husband and our realtor dragged Baby Posh Play and I (in 100 degree heat) through every ramshackle foreclosure in our budget and price range.
Then we found a little gem in a sea of houses that just weren't us. A custom home built in 2004 that just got flipped with new paint and carpets. This house sparkles from floor to ceiling with new hardwood (not laminate) flooring and a jetted tub in the master bathroom! Can you say Mom time away from the boys!
The house was a foreclosure that some investors bought at auction. A great deal only we put in our offer over a week ago and just finally heard back last night! We got a counter offer to our offer and we signed it this morning! Next step. Appraisals and inspections.
I haven't been blogging this week because I was totally wallowing in self pity for days. The thought of schleping me and Mr. Posh Play and Baby Posh Play to our parents houses or friends houses or who knows where until we got a house just wasn't the ideal situation. Especially in the peak of summer heat. One move with a baby is quite enough for this new Mom!
(Here are the barstools I am really hoping Mr. Posh Play agrees to let me buy. Another piece of furniture for my Pottery Barn list).
