Holy moly...

So I wrote this post about a month ago, but was too much of a chicken to post it.
I'm a firm believer in releasing "stuff" into the universe.
It's healthier for me to put "it" out there rather than hold "it" in.
"It" being anything.
Due to fear, I have held this in because I was/am scared to release it into the universe.
I'm afraid it's not going to happen...
But today is the day I conquer this fear and release "it" into the universe and hope for the best!
We are pre-approved.
For a loan.
In a neighborhood we LOVE and is a 1/4 mile from Lake Norman.
To build the house of our dreams in an established neighborhood on our desired lot... ahhem, Lot 262 please!
Although we've been working with a realtor for over 6 months now,
I didn't expect for this to happen and I really didn't expect for it to happen so soon.
My genius of a husband, on the other hand, knew this was going to happen.
He knew we'd find a house early this year, but he didn't know we'd be building our dream home.
I have so much anxiety over this.
Anxiety and Excitement.
At this point, more anxiety than excitement.
20% down is scary stuff!
And being pre-approved is kind of a joke.
I want final approval.
Until final approval, I don't really believe it's happening.
I feel like such an adult :)


  1. That is such great news!!!! Crossing my fingers for a final approval!!

  2. Aww congrats!! I can remember when we purchased our first house and we were freaking out and then with our second and current house, we doubled our mortgage and tripled our space and I am not sure which one was more overwhelming, but soooo exciting!! Hopefully things run smoothly for you!!!

  3. Congratulations! That's huge! I am always afraid to put stuff like that out there, in fear of 'jinxing' it... I know, it's silly!

  4. Yay so happy for you!!!!!! It is a very adult thing but its an amazing feeling :)

  5. thats so exciting!! I would love to build our own dream home!!

  6. Congrats! That is so exciting. We have made the decision to build as well! It's so nerve racking....updates now or later, deck now or later, are we picking the best lot, landscaping, so many questions running through my mind every second!

  7. Congrats! The whole building process is crazy and stressful, but it will all be worth it once you get the keys in your hand!
