I never EVER make any mistakes... but I thought everyone else would appreciate this one! Hah... I kid. ;) I make more mistakes than I care to admit! Anyhow... I wanted to drop in and remind everyone that today is the LAST day to purchase your art prints from my etsy shop at 40% off!! :) Tomorrow everything will be back at full price.
The sale really has been a huge success! It brought us closer to our dream home... but unfortunately at this time the odds are not so good that we'll be buying the house. There had already been an offer made and accepted but the buyer backed out, so we put in an offer and apparently they accepted another offer that came in the following day without giving us the chance to counter.. have NO idea why any seller would want to do that? Why not say "hey, give me more money and I'll sell to you instead?" But anyhow, we're still hoping that the other offer may fall through, and we can grab it then. Is it bad to wish that on the sellers? lol So anyhow, that was a big dissapointment. I took quite a few pictures of the property and house when we looked at it on Thursday... when I'm feeling better about the whole thing I'll share them on here! :)
We're just trying to stay positive, thanks to the sale we are even more prepared... and we'll have more time to squirrel some extra money aside for an even bigger down. Our little town is loaded with suuuper cute Craftsman Bungalow's and victorian style houses, something else will come along. We're also debating on just selling our house. We'll see. We're picking up exterior paint tonight and I think we'll be having a new roof put on as well. That needs done wether we rent or sell.
Well, how was YOUR weekend? The balloon rally was fun! I'll post some pictures today or tomorrow. :)
