Third Time’s a Charm!

I received great news today… my dream of owning a house is coming true this week. I know I posted that I was supposed to close on April 1st, well April 1st came and went… and no closing. ūüė¶

I began to think it wasn’t going to¬†happen,¬†when I got a phone call today. It is official, I will be¬†a home owner on Thursday Friday! Looks as if I have had a change in days… I should be closing on Friday now… It is that pesky little government wanting to know what the left hand is doing, or something like that. While I have a time and a date, I am still afraid that something will go wrong.¬†However if I go with the old saying Third Time’s a¬†Charm, everything should¬†come together on Thursday. This is the third house I have had a contract on, however, none of the other houses did I have an actually closing date and time.

If you are looking to get¬†a house-warming gift for me…

This cute Tiffany & Co. Key Ring would be a lovely give for my new set of house keys.

 

A bottle of Jordan Winery Cabernet Sauvignon. I want to have a nice bottle of wine to enjoy on my first evening in my house.

 

 

And if you are stuck for an idea… gift cards are always welcome ūüėČ Any home improvement center (Home Depot, Lowes or Menards), home decor store (Target, TJMaxx¬†or Walmart)¬†or grocery store (I’m going to have to stock the kitchen)

Truly, I can hardly wait, I am a little worried about buyer’s remorse, but the movie Under the Tuscan Sun taught me a little about buyer’s remorse, I would add in a movie clip, but it isn’t working. So if you have not seen the movie check it out.

Wish me luck on this great new adventure, owning a part of the “American Dream.”
