Got approved!!! 11k Citi DC and 5K Nordstrom Visa Sig!

After seeing my score was at 803 now on Experian, I came on the boards for a million opinions because I am scared of conflict and disapproval greatly and I've never had a big boy score before. 😭
I wanted a new Citi card and a cool Visa Sig card, and after days of scaredy catness and begging for people to tell me that, "Yes Virginia, ... there IS Santa Claus" ...
I apped my way into two new cards! Citi DC seemed the best choice for a new card with cash back, and they took all of 30 seconds to say "Approved - $11,000. See you in the mail in seven days! Congrats!"
But said my EX score pull was only 798.
But, but ... 😳😳😳
I almost died!!! 😀😂🤣😃 Ahhh!!!
Then I snapped out of it and ran to my Nordstrom app to app, desperately wanting a cool Visa Signature to add to my victorious Mother's Day (I may not have kids, but I'm a mother-something ...)
And boom! Nordstrom Visa Sig, 5k. With that lil $40 thing to use today!
😝😝😝😝
Alrighty then. I'm gonna get myself a purty new watch, or shoes, or a instant pot ... SOMETHING!
Oh mah gawd. **SPAZ**
How you guys app this kinda stuff, you must be made of liquid awesome. ✌
Thanks everyone for encouraging my habit!!! 😎
See you in the garden. For, like, ... a year?
Yeah. But my birthday is in December.
Okay, a "sorta" year.
🥂 🍾 🥳 🎁
YAY!!!!!!!
😅😍🤗 *dancing and kinda crying* 😂😂😂

Why thank ya kindly, dear Sir! 😎
I love how after my initial super rush cleared away and I looked back at my 'muchness', I thought to myself , ... "you know that Instant Pot was on sale at Amazon. I bet THEY have a good card ... *rabble rabble*"...
LOL! But that made me think through for my next heist. 3 of my inquiries drop off by Nov. putting me below 5/24.
Mmm, "M-M-Merry Christmas" says Chase in my head! 🎅 😈 😆
