Closing Drama {Our House}

Happy Tuesday!

Did you have a good weekend?

We did - after a super rocky start!

On Friday, there was a chance we weren't going to close on the house on time because the mortgage company procrastinated after approving us (and confirming the closing date several times) and didn't get their paperwork together to send to closing. I thought that people handing in their work late was just a problem with students, but apparently it is a problem everywhere!

After lots of stressful moments on Thursday "yes, we are" "no, we're not", which left us looking and feeling like this.

And Friday was more of the same. The closing got delayed more times that I really want to count, but finally, we were at the title company!

And after an hour and a half signing a million and a half papers, we found ourselves here!

We originally wanted to stay at the house Friday night, but because we closed so late, we didn't have time to go get any blinds, and all of our windows are super visible because the house next door hasn't been built yet! So we decided to stay at the apartment one last night, but not before we celebrated with some prosecco in our new kitchen!

Even though we had to leave Friday night, we were back bright and early Saturday morning so the movers could come. They were awesome! They had everything unloaded and ready to be unpacked in just over an hour!

Then, it was time for our first trip to Home Depot as home owners! AJ didn't understand why I needed to take so many pictures to document this trip...

But you guys get it, right? What we really needed was blinds, because none of the windows had any! We spent the rest of the day putting them up - it took practically all day. I think it might be AJ's least favorite thing to do, ever.

But its done now, and we can walk around our house at night without feeling like everyone can see everything we are doing!

Sunday, would you believe AJ had to go to work?! So I spent the whole day unpacking. And putting up window film on our front door. But that's a story for a different post ;)

There is still a lot more to do - like finish unpacking, get the rest of our furniture delivered/built, and getting the internet installed. But we still got a lot done this weekend!

What were you up to?

Your home is beautiful. Love all the woodwork and the your fireplace.
I agree with AJ blinds are not fun to put up, but what is worse is getting those extra slats out ;)
