Most of my birthday day was spent organizing paperwork to get approved for a mortgage loan. LOTS and lots of paperwork involved (and I'm truly not as organized as I should be!). I did get a pedicure later in the afternoon, and it was wonderful!! I should have written down the color I picked because I love it.  It's the perfect mix of wine and berry with a hint of shimmer.  A great fall color.  We have a black tie wedding this Saturday, and I think this color will look great peeking out from my shoes!

B came home from work, I opened my presents (jewelry and Tory Burch heels that are amazing!!), we went to see our friends ultrasound pictures, and then went downtown to dinner at Wildfire.  I must get steak on my birthday, and we had a gift certificate that needed to be used asap, so it worked out well for us to go there.  The dinner was great and it allowed us time to talk about the houses we saw, the paperwork we needed to complete, and our offer we wanted to put in.  We were easily preapproved for a mortgage, and we've got enough for a down payment, so it's really just gathering all the crazy paperwork that is going to be the hard work.  It's good for me though- forces me to continually purge unnecessary paperwork and file old paperwork that is necessary. 

Tuesday night at 10 p.m. we actually put an offer in on a house!  I can't believe it.  It's a wonderful house in a great school district (I don't want to jinx anything so I'm not posting pics yet).  We didn't hear ANYTHING yesterday, so needless to say we're both a little frustrated.  The seller has to get back to us by noon today, so we'll see what she counter offers with (or if she counter offers).  Apparently another family went yesterday for a showing, so we think she's holding out as long as she can in case they also put in an offer.  Once we hear anything, I'll let you guys know!  And, if we get it, I'm going to need some major decorating help (so much fun!!), so we'll definitely have lots of blog posts about that :)  Wish us luck today!!
