In the past week Zach and I got pre-qualified and have since been house hunting like nobody's business. We are super excited to announce that we found ' the one' I don't want to say too much, in case I jinx it, but here are the facts. Facts don't jinx, right?
We put an offer on a historic 3 bedroom 2.5 bathroom house, built in 1923, that hit pretty much everything on our 'wish' list *Hint: It's got a pool AND an outdoor fireplace* Seriously. It's awesome. Like, on the national register of historic places awesome. Plus, there is no reported paranormal activity- I asked. :D
Of course the listing agent thinks I'm a freak for asking, but they have to disclose it, you know! There's a legal precedent! (Holler for friends in law school!)
That offer was accepted (Sweet!) and we just had the home inspection yesterday. Things are moving along, and while there are still so many moving parts and things that could fall through, I am just so so so hopeful that this is our house. We didn't see another one that even came close to what we want, so if it ain't this.... it's rental city for the next who-knows-how-long.
So please send your finger-crosses/ 4 leaf clovers/ wishbones this way!! P.S. If anyone wants to make this their birthday wish when they blow out their candles, let me know and you totally get a pool party at Casa Schaffer (that's my last name, by the way, did you know that?) next year! I pray to sweet little baby Jesus that this will all go through.
OK, back to sending up those house prayers.
