Big day.

So, I made it back from Colorado Saturday night. I was so tired, I crashed as soon as I hit my pillow.

Today, Josh and I got up way too early and dropped off signed papers to the selling agent of the property we had made an offer on. We walked through the house again, and although there is a lot of work to be done (it's sort of a "fixer"), I still really loved the place and saw quite a bit of potential. After walking through the house, we ran some errands and grabbed lunch.

I headed off to Wan's baby shower at the Altadena Country Club. The shower was beautiful, the hostess very gracious, the food delicious, the paper products splendid, and the honored guest glowing! Sadly, I have no pictures, but I have a sneaking suspicion some will be posted on a few other blogs, soon.

At the shower, I got a call that ... the sellers accepted our offer!!!

Josh and I are so excited. I have to admit, I did get pretty nervous, though, after we got the news! Aaahhhh! Okay, I am mostly excited. :)

A little about the house: It is 4 bedroom/2 bath with a formal living and dining room and a family room. It's a cosmetic fixer and needs some paint and cleaning. Also, the kitchen and bathrooms could use upgrading. Buuut...it's located on an incredible almost half-acre lot with hill views in a great town with a great school district! It's kind of a commute for me, but it will be worth it.

Here's a pic of the backyard:



Anyway, that's the scoop! Now we have to wait a month or so, and if all goes well, we may have a house soon!
