The Waiting Game

03/16/11

Happy Wednesday, Style Nation! I made it through my March 15th deadline at work, so I'm breathing a big sigh of relief there!  However, I'm still on needles and pins because we are waiting to hear from our realtor about the condo.  We submitted an offer yesterday morning, received a counter offer last night, and submitted a new offer last night.  The new offer is the most we can comfortably afford, so I'm really hopeful that they'll accept.  But in the meantime, the suspense is killing me!

In other news, spring has arrived in Chicago!  It's a clear and sunny morning here, and it's supposed to get up to the upper 50's this afternoon.  To get ready for spring weather, I'm sporting a new dress that I picked up for summer and the California trip (if it looks familiar, it's because rlutz was sporting it over at Not Just MOM a couple of weeks ago).

  7. Glad to hear you are getting some fine spring weather and sporting a denim jacket. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you hear some good news about the condo!

  9. Well, I'm assuming this is the new E-Jo-esque striped dress... 'cause, holy crap, do I love it. I particularly like the pairing with the purple tights and denim jacket. Seriously, I have this dress up on Target's website on another window -- I'm totally going to go try it on tomorrow.

  17. Oooh really? You have to post it! An E-Jo copying Anne copying E-Jo post would blow my mind.

  18. I'm definitely planning one. That dress is going to get a lot of blog face time I suspect!

  19. What is up, home-buying sister? Are you a condo owner now, or what? I'm dying to know! (We're going out on the home hunt, again, this weekend.)

    Also, that striped dress is awesome. And its looks great with the jean jacket. In a few short weeks, maybe, a jean jacket with a jersey dress and bare legs will be enough to keep us warm, no? How I long for that time!

  20. I'll share tomorrow, but you could probably find an answer to that on Facebook :)

    Good luck this weekend! Are you looking at houses or condos? Or both?
