Weekend FUN!

WE had a very exciting weekend. Here it is in a nutshell. We have been contemplating for a while now if we should buy a home here in Texas before our house in Utah sells. Right now, we are renting an apartment, and to say the least, it is small. We spent all day Saturday looking at homes, and then decided to make an offer on a smaller home right here in McKinney. Sunday, our realtor called us and said that there were SEVEN other offers on the table. After some serious pondering, we decided that this is the Lord's way of telling us not to undertake the 2 mortgage deal, and sign another lease with the apartment complex. :) SO here we are. I actually feel really great about it!

Also on Saturday, the PACKERS WON!! Yipeeeee! I have been a Green Bay Packer fan since I was growing up in Wisconsin. If you live in Wisconsin, you HAVE to be a Packer fan. Did you know that the GB Packers are the only non-profit, community-owned professional sports team in America?

AND, to make it even better, the GIANTS beat the COWBOYS last night, so the NFC Championship game will be IN GREEN BAY next week. The only downside? I'm going to be on an AIRPLANE during the GAME!!!! How unfair!!

I hope your weekend was extra fun!

I think that's a wise move with the mortgage! Last thing you want is a double mortgage! Yuck!

I have a girlfriend who just moved to Allen a few weeks ago!! I think her husband works in McKinney (Ratheon). They haven't sold their house in Phoenix yet either and are going through the same debate. They are renting a house but are itching to "settle" in Texas and make it feel like home which is sometimes hard to do when you're renting. I think you're smart to avoid 2 mortgages since you never know what can or will happen. I'm sure everything will work out perfectly when the time is right!
