Trials & Tribulations of Home Searching

I'm sorry, readers, but I'm just not in a posting mood today. The Boyfriend and I spent a good portion of the weekend home-searching, and even put an offer in on a house, but sadly did not get it. This was our third try (on two different homes, if that makes sense); and I know the average home-buyer makes five offers before they land one, but it's so frustrating! Especially in Seattle where, even in the recession, houses are ridiculously expensive.

Feel free to post a comment if you'd like to vent about your home-search process! I'd love to hear about similar situations!

*swoon* (or *sigh*)

P.S. On a good note, I went to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yesterday and found a pair of Joe jeans, black trousers, and some black flats, all of which had been on my checklist! At least I had a good day in terms of shopping!
Another good thing is that The Boyfriend and I consolidated our workspaces into one room so we now share an office and are slowly cleaning up the living room to just be a living room and not my office!


  1. :( you'll find the right one soon! i had fun shopping and bbqing with you!! xoxo

  2. We are doing the exact same thing! Our offer wasn't accepted on our dream house, and now no other houses can compare to that one. It is really frustrating to see something promising and have it not be right. But I try to just have fun looking, and getting ideas for when I finally find (or maybe build!) the perfect one again.
