it's not a BFP

But it's pretty darn awesome if I do say so myself.

I know you thought this would never ever happen, but Mr. and Mrs. Misfit are officially under contract on a house!!! Mr. Misfit doesn't even know because he just went for a run (yes, we keep odd hours - I have a cake cooling for my book club on Thursday. What? It's not like we have kids getting up at 6AM) and I just got the email from our agent.

It is a short sale, so the sale still has to be approved by the bank, but we offered full list (with just a smidge of closing costs) so I think that will probably happen (though not necessarily soon). We probably won't move for a couple of months, but I am going to start packing and clearing out the shed (and perhaps shopping for furniture?) immediately.

Here is our baby:


I have to admit, I had (and probably still have) mixed feelings about this particular house, but right now I am ecstatic. I often feel that exciting life developments are something that happens to other people (you know, people who can have kids), but I guess sometimes they happen to me too :).

  11. Awesome!!! It's adorable! Can't wait to see pics of the inside :).

    Hoping everything goes through and you get in the house quickly!
    We just saw our neighbor's house go on the market for a ridiculously low price and were flabbergasted, then looked it up and realized it was a short sale. At least they don't affect market prices - that had me worried for a minute!

  27. So sorry, I thought I had commented before about how awesome this is, but I guess I didn't. My bad. I am so excited for you and your DH!!!! I can't wait to see more and all of your design updates. I have been watching a lot of HGTV lately. Do you watch that channel? I think you would be a great host of show on there as you have great taste and know a TON about this kind of stuff.
