I have the itch to go house hunting!

Well I do have a house but not in the town we live in.  LOL!  We have renters in our old house and are not selling due to the value dropping so much the last couple years.

Last year we found a house we liked and went to the credit union to get our credit score and to see if we would qualify but unfortunately we were not approved.   The house we found was a foreclosure but now I have been seeing more and more houses for sale or foreclosed and I think we could have a cheaper mortgage and utilities with purchasing then living in our apartment.  We have a friend who is a Realtor and I get his daily emails of the properties that are on the market.  I have been seeing several houses that make me want to go take a look since the price tag is under $50,000!!  :)  WOW!!!  I know with the interests as low as they are it would be so nice to find a good property and lock in a rate for under 5%!  :)

So should we go ahead and do a free credit score to see if we improved since last year?  I know we have paid off debt and we have some savings now so maybe they will give us money???

The only scary thing is having two houses.  Last year in the fall we were searching for new renters and that was stressful but if we found a house to buy that would be cheaper then the apartment we are living in so I would think that would be less stressful.

God will direct our path so I will keep trusting him.  I just have a desire to get out of this apartment but then other day's I don't mind it.  I like not having to do yard work but I think I would prefer to have my own back yard and do yard work.  I guess you make your lists of pro's and con's and then ask God for direction!  Who knows the door might be closed right away if we do not qualify for a loan.

We are having the house itch too! Have you looked into owner financing or land contract? Those are good options for people that are unable to qualify for a loan.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
