Never Grow Up

So we put an offer on the house last night! It went really well, my dad loved it which really made me excited! Our Realtor shared some information that made us feel better about the short sale, she seemed to think everything was going to work out fine as long as were patient. I guess the average short sales takes 4-6 months. For us this is actually perfect because I graduate in March, and who likes to move in the winter? 

All this house stuff really started to get me thinking and realizing how fast time has gone by...It literally feels like yesterday that my only worries were if mom and dad were going to say yes to a sleepover, and if I would get cookies after dinner. Now I am dealing with buying a house, graduating from college,  getting a "real job" soon...its really exciting, scary, sometimes I don't believe it....

I know my parents are excited for me, but at the same time I could see in my dad's eye that he couldn't believe his little girl was signing papers to buy a house with the man she will be marrying in less than a year...everything just really hit me.

I recently got Taylor Swifts new album, which is great! There is a song on it that really reminds me of my this. It's called Never Grow Up. 

"Don't lose the way that you dance around in your pj's getting ready for school.
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up, just stay this little.
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple.
No ones ever burned you, nothings ever left you scarred. And even though you want to 
just try to never grow up"
