I had big plans to write a well-crafted blog post about all the cute lace items I’ve been seeing around stores. As much as I love lace, I’ll admit, my personal life is clouding my thoughts. It’s all good stuff, but my family and I are stuck in a big state of limbo right now. I’m trying to remain positive, but I absolutely hate this feeling. I’ll explain in a minute…

Before I begin blabbing on, I’m going to get the outfit details out the way. That was the purpose of this post in the first place so I might as well talk about this cute lace top. This pretty off-white beauty can easily be dressed up or down, worn underneath a sweater or on its own as a statement piece. There are only a few sizes left online, but it is currently on sale for $32. Can’t beat that price for such a pretty piece.
Alright, here’s the scoop. We are moving! Don’t get too excited because we aren’t moving very far. We are staying in Scottsdale and are only moving 10-15 minutes or so away from our current house. But that’s precisely the problem because we aren’t 100% sure where we are moving just yet. We already sold our house (well, it’s under contract), which is AMAZZZZZING. That’s the good news. The bad news is we found another house we like, but we’ve been going back and forth with the seller. We are submitting another counter today, which I already know they will counter again. Just make it end already!
On top of that, the house we are looking at is a total 90’s fixer upper. 90% of me is excited about doing our first remodel, but 10% of me is absolutely terrified of what could go wrong. I’m a total pessimist (my husband can’t stand that about me), so I always worry about the worst case scenario. Like right now, all I can think about is what is going to happen if we can’t come to an agreement on this house. We’ve been looking for about a year and haven’t found exactly what we are looking for. Even this house isn’t perfect, but we can see huge potential in this 90’s beast. But this feeling of limbo is awful.
I’m sure we will have some clarity within the next couple days, but I’m so ready for this nerve-wrecking negotiation process to end. Has anyone else been through this before? Also, if we do end up buying the fixer-upper, would you guy be interested in following along with our remodel? Any and all advice would be appreciated!! I’ll update you guys as soon as I know more!
