NFR: Property Virgin… no more?

October 6, 2009 at 8:51 am 25 comments

I can’t believe it’s been 3 weeks since I last wrote in my blog.

A couple people even emailed me and left me comments not to give up blogging. I guess 3 weeks is too long to go on hiatus in the blogging world, eh? Maybe it’s like dog years. One day is like 1 year. Wait? Did I just compare myself to a dog? Well… I suppose I can be a bitch sometimes. HA!

To be honest I forget I have readers. I forget that reading someone’s blog is like having permission to know what’s going on in their lives. At least that’s the way it is for me. When one of my blogging buddies stopped writing I feel so disconnected to them. Is that how you felt about me, Commenter #25? *smiles*

So I wanted to apologize for my lack of Tuesdays with Dorie posts, random non-food related and other food for thought posts lately. But there’s been a lot going on at mi casa.

Actually… I’m in the process of BUYING mi casa! Eek.

Whaaaaaattt? (I know my friend, April, is totally saying that right now.)

That’s right! No foolin’. In about 30 days I might be the owner of a brand new 2 bedroom/2 bathroom townhouse. And I’m totally freaking out! (Cross your fingers for me!)

This is the model’s livingroom. It’s already wired for flat screen above the fireplace. Obviously my husband is UBER excited about this!

So bare with me. This was very unexpected. We weren’t even really looking. It’s kinda like looking for a boyfriend. You look, look, look and find nothing but taken/married, too short, no personality etc but when you least expect it you find the one you’ve been looking for. Am I right girls?

I promise I’m not closing down my blog. I just might be preoccupied with mortgage, down payments, lenders, real estate agents, first time home buyer, tax credit, paint chips mumbo jumbo for a while.

But I know I’m a true foodie b/c I’m already planning my housewarming party menu!

Too soon? HA HA

    Well that’s good news :) I did that two years ago and I understand that the buying process is long… at some point you feel like lenders want to know the blood type of your great grand parents before the go ahead. Argh.
