Jason and I LOVE our neighbors and our home, and almost three years ago we were thinking about rounding out our family with a new puppy to make everything feel complete. Apparently God had another plan for us (one that most certainly must have given him a good laugh) because on April 1st (yes…April Fool’s Day) He decided that we needed another child instead.
Well, I had to smile while watching the end of the BMO Harris Bank Scavenger Hunt Sweepstakes commercial this week, as the man in the couple looks at the house for sale and immediately thinks of getting another dog, while the woman is thinking about a new baby. Here they are…don’t you just love their expressions?!
Needless to say at 40 years old, though the dog acquisition was in negotiation stages, I wasn’t thinking about another baby at ALL! And we for sure weren’t thinking about a new home, but life has a funny way of changing everything, doesn’t it? So, we didn’t get the dog, but instead were blessed with the birth of our third child – Addilyn Marie – a GIRL! (Named after my great grandmother on my mom’s side. Sorry – I just love sharing the reason for her first name. Shameless MOM thing to do, but oh well.) And it didn’t take too terribly long after she was born for us to realize that we really wanted a new “forever home” with a bit more space.
Tips for purchasing a new home? Yes, please! (And my husband was THRILLED that I had an interest! It had nothing to do with the chance to win $950…I promise.)

Wait…is THAT house for sale?? I have always wanted a backyard pool!
In all seriousness though, my husband and I both learned some useful information about our down payment.
