Super duper good news...
It was a bit of a scary situation since we are really pushing the envelope. The lender requested more documents than I could have ever guessed and honestly, if she had asked for blood I wouldn't have been surprised. Since I am a stay home mom and we are going to be on a very tight budget, I had to write a letter explaining that I was employable and if needed that I would return to the working world. The loan officer prepared me that they may say no or ask me to return to work before granting approval. So, when she called and told me that we were approved, contingent only upon the house appraisal, I was beyond ecstatic!
On Monday, we get to go pick out flooring, countertops, millwork, doors, plumbing and more. It is going to be a busy day, but the day that we get to "create" the look and feel of the inside of our home. Sure wish I was a designer, lol.
