Friday Confessional-House Hunting Round 2 and Vacation DayDreaming

Huh, what’s the matter? You don’t like my house? Does my house stink? That’s right it stinks! –Rocky

I confess…

That Match and I went house hunting yesterday and it was exhausting but exciting all at once. We found a realtor we love. No more bitchface! This guy knew his stuff. He wasn’t pushy, and he took time out of his day to show us the downtown area and restaurants he thought we’d like.

I confess…

That there was one fireplace that was big enough for me to live in. Look at the size of that thing!

I confess…

That I’m sad that Sassy Couple won’t be our neighbors, but this is a better town for us. I made Sassy Girl promise they’ll still visit.

I confess…

That it amazes me how badly some people will abuse a home when they’ve been foreclosed on. Check out what this toolbag did to their house when the bank took it back. Like it wasn’t their fault they defaulted on their home loan…some people are so lame.

I confess…

That there were some homes that were too dirty to even go inside. I would have had to spend a lot on musty odor removal austin and cleaning just to make it livable. No matter what we end up buying we’ll definitely need to lok into and get the place professionally cleaned. Who knows what or who has been there before us?

I confess…

That I cannot wait to be a homeowner. It is such an emotional process and I’m trying so hard to not just fall in love and instead be logical about this. I’m trying to stay grounded people. It is not an easy task!


I’m also doubling up this post with a Friday Day Dreaming meme hosted by R We There Yet Mom

It’s a fun little blog prompt where you post one of your favorite vacation pictures and tell a little about it.

Right now I wish I was here:

This was taken in Emerald Bay in Lake Tahoe last summer. The weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. We drank bloody marys and rode around in Tahoe Couple’s boat. Unfortunately they don’t live there anymore and they sold their boat. 🙁 But I would love to go back to Emerald Bay sometime in the near future and rent a boat for the weekend. But I think that will have to wait until after we buy the house. Where is my money tree when I need it?!



    Holy crap! That’s a huge fireplace. You could roast an entire animal in there. LOL Happy Friday.


    That is a big fire place. And it is crappy that they painted on the walls in blue, but at least it’s a nice simple good bye and not a much worse saying or nasty picture.
    Good luck house hunting!

    I hope hope hope you find a cute non-dirty house to buy in that town!! Get it all fixed up because I’ll be visiting soon!!

    I wanna be on a boat somewhere but it’s too hot here. So I’ll wish we were at Lake Tahoe too. I bet it’s not too hot there!!


    I have heard horror stories of people ruining plumbing and other things on foreclosed homes! Horrible what people will do out of anger! I hope you find a nice, clean place you love! That was a huge fireplace bigger than my living room i think!

    Thanks for linking up that looks so cool & refreshing!!!!

    And those houses- YIKES!! So sad what people will do!

    Have a great weekend!



    Househunting!!!! Yay!!! My mother in law manages foreclosed homes for banks and you would be shocked at the way people leave some homes!!! I mean gross doesn’t even begin to describe somethings 🙁

    I hope you find a wonderful home you both love. So exciting!!!

    Buying a house was tough for me. The paperwork and hoop jumping was crazy!

    Good Luck finding your dream house!

    Great picture. I miss our boat…

    I can’t wait to go house Hunting and fantastic you found a realtor you like! Good luck:-)


    That’s the biggest fireplace I’ve ever seen! And what a shame that the previous homeowner felt the need to do that to the walls 🙁 But very exciting you guys are shopping for houses! Keep us posted!!

    Finding a home is exciting AND stressful! Boy, that fireplace would be dangerous in my house. My husband likes fire. Scary.

    You’re going to find the perfect place! Don’t let it stress you out too much. You’ll know the right place when you see it.

    And I know ALL about what people do to their homes when they get foreclosed on. FL was hit pretty hard by the real estate fall-out, so when we were looking for a house there, our price range pretty much put us looking at ONLY foreclosures. It was a bit of a nightmare, but I’m sure it was worse for the people who had to lose their homes.

Your comments make my day!
