Stilettos and Diapers: Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?


Have you ever tried sleeping with a broken heart?

{Well, you could try sleeping in my bed.}

I found the perfect house.
I walked in and felt it.
That feeling that I was so wanting to feel in "the one".

My hands were shaky as I sent the hubs pictures.
He was out of town, but it didn't stop me.
I made an offer.
Then I put in an escalating offer so we would beat anyone else.

We knew the house was going into foreclosure,
But were told our contract would stop that process.

This kitchen wooed me.
Our offer was accepted.
Hubs saw the house and loved it.
Pictures were sent to the family.
We went looking at furniture.

Then today, we found out there was a mortgage company
that hadn't been paid,
and the house went into foreclosure.
Just like that.
Nothing we could do to stop it.
No one cared that there was a contract.

Now my little heart is sad,
And all hopes of being in a house by Cooper's 2nd Birthday are gone.
I can't look at more listings, because nothing is perfect like this one.

Hold me. Or send wine and chocolate. Or a perfect house. Please?

{So tonight, I'm gonna find a way to make it without you.}


  1. What happens once it's in foreclosure? Can't you buy it then? Sads for you and your perfect house....

  2. boo.....SO CLOSE....and then it was just gone?!? that stinks!!

  3. ugh! that is heart breaking! :/ is there a possibility of getting it even after foreclosure??

  4. I'm so sorry :( That is so horrible of everyone!

  5. Househunting is so frustrating. I'm so sorry you missed out on this one. You know, it only means one thing... and you probably don't even believe me right now,

    But an even BETTER house is out there waiting for YOU! Good luck in your search...

  6. I am so sorry. That is just awful.. I would be just like you that kitchen is beautiful.

  7. oh im so sorry. if you email me I could get you your Herb prize :) you're my winner!

  8. Wow that sucks! I feel like there should be some way you can have the house still!! I'm so sorry I would be sad too that kitchen is lovely!!!

  9. Omg! That stinks. I'm so so sorry sweetie, I know this is stressful for you. Hang in there, everything happens for a reason, right?? :-/

  10. I'm so bummed out for you! I hope you find another house that's even better:) And soon!

  11. that sucks! but you'll find the perfect house for you guys! everything happens for a reason!

  12. What a bummer. Househunting can be so disappointing. :(

  13. Aw honey bear, I'm sorry. That totally sucks. I still think you're going to find the perfect house for y'all though... give yourself a day or two and then make that house hunt your biatch. love you woman!

  14. Ugh, we went through something similiar with a house. Luckily, we ended up with something better only a week later. I hope things work out for you too!

  15. Oh no!! I am so sad for you, girly! It wasn't meant to be, because your house is out there waiting for you! Hang in there, sweetie!

  16. keep waiting; even if it goes into foreclosure it will probably be auctioned at the courthouse or sold by the bank. Seems like there should be more options. So sorry!

  17. So sorry to hear this... house hunting is a roller coaster huh? I know you will find the house you are meant to be in... stay strong! :)

  18. I am so sorry! Even if you had a contract and it went to the auction steps and sold, the people that bought it at auction get it... short sales and foreclosures just don't make sense to those wanting to buy the home. :(

  19. I love how your blog is so girly! :D :D

  20. LOVE the name of your blog!! :)

    YAY you were my 100th follower. That's so exciting for me! :) Thanks for stopping by and good luck in the giveaway!

  21. What a bummer! House hunting is for sure the most stressful and emotional thing....ever....Keep your head up, you will find your home sweet home soon enough! :)

  22. awww i'm so sorry! i hate having my hopes set on something and then it not happening! Everything happens for a reason. Maybe there is a better house that you haven't found yet!

  23. Aw Molly I'm so sorry about the house.....

  24. So sorry to hear this. Hopefully you will find a very close second soon!

  25. SO sorry about the house! Something similar happened to us before we bought our current home, BOO :(

    I'm a new reader and your blog is adorable!

    Take care!

  26. wow that really sucks! :[ can you get it at all since its in foreclosure?

  27. oh babe, i'm so sorry...i know exactly what you mean. the first house me and the boy bid on was accepted but then the bank wanted to play games and we ended up losing out. a month later though, we found an even better house.

    stay'll find another one.


  28. my heart hurts a lil for you hun :(
    that would be such a big let down.
    it must mean it wasn't meant to be though, right?!?
    i know you will find the right house....home, for you and your family!!
    keep up the faith! it will happen!!! :)

  29. Hi, I just came across your blog from Kelly's over at 3 kids, a mini van and alot of love....

    Anyways, when we had our old house on the market we looked at a few houses and found a couple we wanted to possibly purchase once ours was sold. They sold before ours did. We were very sad but now today we are greatful! We have driven by some of those houses we loved and talked about what we loved about them but then laugh and think how we'd of already out grown the house or remember why we love the house we did get to buy so much more.

    So I guess what I am trying to say is this might be a sign that there is a BETTER much CUTIER house out there you're going to love even more!!!

  30. Awww I'm so sorry! I know what you are going through. When we bought our home a year ago we went something similar and it is so hard!

    I hope that you find something even better!

    PS-I have a motherload of wine and chocolate ;) Where to?

  31. I love love LOVE your blog...I only wish I could be this creative! I just obsess over my daughter on my blog-maybe as she gets older, I can dig a little deeper, ha! Keep writing! I am so sorry to hear about the house you wanted...that is terrible. BUT, you will find one to mend your broken heart-I PROMISE!

  32. Awww man!! :( No good!! I'm so sorry!! The perfect one is still out there!!

  33. That is SO SAD!!!! :(

    Is there any way to buy it as a foreclosure sale?
