Life Lately

 
 
 

Just a few recent snapshots of our life lately via instagram (@linleyshea). 

Last week was incredibly busy - to say the least. Not only did we work 8+ hour days, but after work each day we had appointments and meetings related to house hunting. Monday we looked at four homes; the very first one we looked at caught our eye, and that night we found out another couple was interested in the house and was putting out an offer. Tuesday we looked at one house, then went back for a second viewing at the first home we saw Monday. 

It was in our number one neighborhood and just felt right as we walked through it the second time. 

That night we found ourselves in our realtor's office, signing an offer. We went up against another couple and ours was accepted! 

It took two days for us to find a house. Crazy stuff. 

We've met with our mortgage company, had an inspector view the house, and turned in our requests of the seller. They are currently getting quotes for our requests and pending all that goes well, we will close on the house in mid July! 

You guys, this is all happening so quickly, but it's so exciting and we are in love with the house! 

So all that happened last week. This week I have been mentally planning our move a few miles down the road. We actually have a month and a half between closing and our lease ending where we currently are - so luckily our move will not be rushed. I've also been mentally painting rooms, prioritizing DIY projects, and pinning every inspiring home photo available. 

Needless to say the next couple of months will be busy. Super busy. I've already decided I won't be able to blog daily (yeah, I haven't been doing that since starting a job last year - I know), but I do plan on blogging when I can and I plan on sharing the journey with you as we go (and as I have time - let's be real). 

Happy summer time!
