When I got dressed Saturday morning, I stood at my dresser and said what says I am going to buy a house today. I needed some good ju-ju. I put on jeans and one of my favorite long sleeve black shirts and I wore my real people boots as opposed to my Uggs. When I got down the stairs, Brandon did a double take. If nothing else, I knew I looked good. He said to me "Mama, I am going to buy you a house today". We had a good laugh about it while both holding out hope that he was right.
We had a showing on Saturday at noon. When we show the house, we have to remove the dogs. Since our recent discovery that Gemma gets carsick, we have been opting to creep on the house from the car. For quick showings, this works well for Natalie. For showings that take any length of time, this is brutal. We didn't want to take any chances, so I bundled Natalie up and we went to run errands. I needed an oil change anyways and wanted to pop into Target for a new thermometer and some diapers. Before Natalie and I got home, Brandon called to let us know we had gotten a formal offer on the house. Eek!

Things are starting to fall into place and I could not be happier about that!
