We did have a few close calls. An offer here that got beat and a house there that we stepped into, fell in love with, and then found out 10 minutes after leaving it that an offer had already been accepted with several other offers already made as well. Complete bummers but we're still hopeful.

I've also been inspired by a few things I've read recently about people who took a big leap of faith and wound up finding home. Their home just happened to be New York City but I could still relate and find comfort in some aspect of each these stories (remember my love and fascination with New York? I've got an entire Pinterest board dedicated to NYC - whenever I get the chance to visit again.
Ann Hood recalls her first apartment in New York and her experiences floating from one apartment to the next. I thought it was interesting how her less than ideal living conditions helped her discover what she wanted in a home.

Pregnancy-wise I've been feeling great. I'm exactly 25 weeks today which is nuts-o. It's going really fast. Emotionally the house hunt has been tough (with added hormones thrown into the mix) but I've been able to handle everything well so far. I had no intentions of posting any type of belly shot, but today is your lucky day friends...this was taken over the weekend (don't mind the bath towel thrown over the shower - that's how we roll around here).
