I Sold You So

Remember when I told you about my favorites of May?  Well, I forgot to mention something.

That something being (no, not my inventive hair part but)…SELLING our house!!

Here we are, moments after signing the paperwork, with our realtor Dustin.  My enthusiasm was a tad overwhelming for the poor guy but he was a good sport during the self timer pics and even mustered up a “Woohoo!” to humor me.

I’m not sure if it will be turned into a historic house (after all, this is the humble beginnings of thecandace.com) or if it’ll just be just someone’s home sweet home but regardless, we are now stripped of all home ownership.  We are so totally house naked!


After almost a year of being on and off the market, this house selling roller coaster (specifically the ones where you get sick on afterward) has finally come to rest.  Phew.  One day, if you’re waiting in line somewhere and your phone is low on batteries so you can’t play Angry Birds and are looking for five minutes to kill, we’ll tell you the story of how it all unfolded.  But, what you need to know for now is that we were right smack in the middle of making the most elaborate and aromatic Indian dish on the planet when the surprise showing ambushed us.  As we rushed out in a frenzy, I had to laugh at the horror we were forced to leave behind….until I realized the horror we were forced to leave behind and then I cried.  But, those people bought it anyway!

We have a few weeks to pack up our lives and find a new place.  Hopefully our friends will think back fondly on all of the nice memories we created together because we’ve been banking those just in case we have to move into their basement.  I’ll keep you posted.

We did take a self timer chest bump pic (which takes more coordination than I first anticipated) but it turned out slightly scandalous so I thought I’d spare you.

  1. Yea!!! Congrats on being house naked!! :-) And mi basement es su basemenet (hmmm…I think something got lost in translation there; but you know what I mean!)

    • Your basement sure is nice, thank you for the offer! Also, you have a cute roommate that I’d like to get to know a little better.

    • Doh! I wish so too – house selling is *SUCH* a pain. I’m sending along lots of luck and good house selling vibes to your place!

  2. Congrats! Now comes a even more stressful time….buying a house. :) What a wonderful time to be house searching – Good luck!

  3. After a year of keeping our bed made, waiting for the onslaught of showings that never arrived, it’s been a relief to finally let our inner slobs come out again.

    We’re just hoping the buyer loves the Camellia Crib as much as we did (and still do)!

  4. Yahoo!! I am so happy for both of you! I am also a little envious too. Someday I will muster up enough self-loathing to put ours back on the market. I am happy to know there is a little glimmer of hope out there. I hope you find the house of your dreams and it goes smoothly!

    • Thank you, Faith! I wish nothing but good things for when you do decide to put your house on the market it again – it’s not a fun process!

  5. You do have the best bloggy friends!! Congratulations to you both. It has been quite a journey. The story of the sale cracks me up. Personally, I think it should be designated as a historical house. And Penelope thinks the same. I can just imagine the sense of relief the sale caused. Love mamap

    • Now Zack makes our “lucky Indian dish” every other week! It’s delicious and reminds us of how things all worked out. :)

  6. congrats! and love the pictures….Dustin’s face cracks me up…he is SO EXCITED for you guys! ;-D Our basement has some openings for you, the rent is very very cheap even…though you have to spare one room as we got water in one room over a week ago so it is a bit torn up at the moment…and then in the mornings you guys can wake up to Ryan’s freshly roasted and brewed coffee!

  7. I have seen your stellar dance moves and I know Makenzie would benefit from the instructional video you could put together for her. ::)) FUN!! I have room for you also. We can make the hairy dog go visit g & g for a while. love mamap

  8. Congrats!! If you don’t mind commuting from NC you can come stay with us. 😉 Otherwise feel free to come down for a vacation. Miss ya girl! And I’ll miss the Camellia Crib. Good times…

    • The commute would be long, but worth it! We made lots of memories in the C Crib, didn’t we?? Miss you too, sweets!
