Dh decided to hold off on going to the bank to see about a home loan... He wanted me to research some local banks for rates and what kind of loans they offer. I found one that I liked!! They even offer a no-down loan for first time home buyers. We also looked up dh credit score ymine isn't needed since I don't work it won't be included) and he actually has a pretty good score! So we did a few mortgage calculators to see what we can afford and I swear there is someting wrong with them lol. They all say around 160,000 lol ummmmm if it's true great but we are looking way lower. I even contacted a realitor to go and check out a house down the road that is double the size we are in now. Hopefully we hear back from her soon as I emailed her. I'm really hoping for this... We need something bigger and I even looked to see if there are bigger rentals around and they are all tiny and way more than we pay for the house we are in. I feel as though the kids stuff has taken over and it's about to get a bit more crowded here in 2 months. Dh says if he goes and looks at some houses it will make him more excited to go to the bank he is worried because it's a very big step. So wish us luck I will keep everyone posted on how things are going! Crossing my fingers too!

I don't think it will take a year.... Luckly the area is small... There are 2 or 3 houses we like around here. And 1 that is big enough for the years to come. The other 2 are about the size we are in
