Well, I took a “big girl” step yesterday. Now I can’t decide if I now need a big drink to calm my nerves or a trash can to catch them. In some ways I feel like I started the process of signing my life away, but hopefully it will all be worth it.
Obviously it is only the first step of many to come, but I have actually put in my very first offer on a place that I could eventually call my own. As I write this, I am still sitting on the edge of my chair waiting to hear back from my agent. It is stressful. I have always loved looking at homes and how people decorate their spaces. When it is your money and signature, though, it is an entirely different game. You have to weigh your original “must-haves” and “likes” a little differently when you are no longer playing with Monopoly money.

In other news, my Wednesday morning started off with a great surprise. Before even getting to work this morning, I received an email from Beth of Eat. Drink. Smile. (one of my favorite blogs) to find that I was the winner of her latest giveaway! I am thrilled and can’t wait to try out some new things from Alison Lewis’ 400 Best Sandwich Recipes. Be sure to check out Beth’s blog! You won’t be disappointed that you did, but I can’t promise that it won’t make you hungry for great food.
