Mortgage Programs

I never advertise anything on here...ever.  But recently my brother referred this mortgage banker to us.  We bought our home in 2007 at the height of the housing boom.  Now like many Americans we owe more on our home than it is worth.  The government has come out with several programs to help home owners but how do you really know which ones to use or who to contact to help you through this process?  I highly recommend John Hoskins.  He is based out of Missouri but is licensed in over 40 states as a mortgage broker.  He is attentive and relentlessly worked with us to get a better mortgage while also lowering our payment.  These mortgage programs are only being offered for a limited time.

The motor on our air conditioner went out this weekend.  The A/C company didn't have the part in stock so originally they told us they would have it by Monday and installed Monday evening.  Monday morning they called and said they wouldn't be able to get it until Wednesday.  They installed the part at 8pm last night.  It's been a LONG week!

Updates on my New Venture

At the beginning of the year I blogged about my newest venture.  I'm happy to report that 6 months later things are going really well.  Just this week the site was featured as one of the best family event blogs in Florida!!  I have leaders in the community contacting me with information to share with families and have been building important relationships within our community.  I can't wait for this venture to continue on to bigger things! 

The lady who wrote the article about the site is the co-founder of Hatchedit.com and a contributing editor for Forbes.

Honored to be a Godparent

This weekend my nieces will be baptized.  I am a godparent for Addy and I so badly wanted to be there.  My plan was to book a quick trip over the weekend.  I came to the realization that plans don't always work out as intended and once you have children the simplicity of catching a weekend flight isn't so simple anymore.  I tried every avenue but the fact of the matter is there is no one to watch the kids.  I'm upset and felt horrible when I had to tell my brother I wouldn't be there.  Times like this I wish family lived close by.  I never realized how much I depend on my parents when they are here, until they aren't.  Thankfully at the end of this month they will be moving to Florida for good.  This means so much to me to have them close by.  I had very fond memories of my grandparents growing up and I want the same for our kids.

I'll be there in spirit for the girls at their baptism and am honored to be a godparent.  Love those little girls so much!  The good news is that when my parents are here for good, Brian and I will be heading back to Nebraska this summer to visit friends, family and hopefully meet my birthparents!
