Queen of the Day!

YAY!!!! I'm the Queen of the Day at DST today!! :) :) :) I am so excited and so flattered. Stop over and drop a line or feel free to ask any questions you want. Here is a little gift for all of you as well just because I'm SO excited! Use the coupon code queen627 for 50% off my entire store through Friday (6-29).

SO busy with house stuff...
We are still trying to sell our house and looking to build a new one. We spoke to a builder and have it narrowed down to 2 different house plans with some updates. The Lexington and The Jamestown. It's just amazing how much all the upgrades come to and once you figure in the cost of the property, it is just obnoxious!!! We need to figure out what we can afford and then go from there. We're going tomorrow night to see a Jamestown that is under construction to try to get a better idea of what it looks like "in person" and not just "on paper". The home builder had a model of the Lexington at their site and it was SO pretty! We actually didn't like it "on paper", but loved it "in person". Now we're seeing pros and cons to both plans and need to figure out where they fall money-wise.

Speaking of money...
Just a quick rant... Why is everything so gosh darned expensive?!?!? I swear, it is unbelievable!! I'm lucky enough to be a stay at home mom, but the "play money" just isn't there, KWIM? It just amazes me what life costs.... Okay...rant over! ;)

That's it
Just a quick blog post today. I still have to download the camera to get off the camping pictures to show all of you. I promise I'll get on that today! ;) (ooppssss...did I say that DAYS ago??!?!? LOL) Thanks to all of you for being such wonderful friends!! {{HUGS}}

Congrats on Queen! I completely understand what you mean about the money - being a SAHM just doesn't pay enough! :)

yes, the money is not there, but the rewards are, so hang in there! and building a house is a great investment of money, try to stretch to get those things that will make your life easier when you are in there, but i know it is expensive... are you looking at $100/sq foot or is it more than that??
