Some Housekeeping

Hey y'all!! Happy Tuesday to you!! I am officially a slacker as you can all have guessed by now. I did take my photos of my winnings and Fall Swap package from Michelle. I will share those. Promise.
Mama Llama asked about the swag in the background on my mantle. Emilie, my Halloween swap partner, made that for me. Her friend, Jenny, made one and has a tutorial on her blog, Lipstick and Laundry. The Nester also made one.
Nichole brought up a good point about McCain having met his current wife when he was still married to the previous one. Yes, I did know that and think it is wrong, certainly. I have to agree with another Michelle on this point. We are voting for the lesser of the two evils here. In my personal opinion. Though I did say that I really wanted Huckabee for president. I do have another interesting link for y'all to check out. You may have seen it by now. It does pose a good argument. Ok, done with politics now.
In house news, the funds have been allocated. I think we got the funding number yesterday-I can't always understand what the lender is talking about. Our lender called and said there was a test we had to take. A test?!?! Can we possibly fail it?? Not sure what's up with that. If all goes well, we should close the 30th of October.
That's all for now. I will(I think) come back and post about all the fun mail I have been getting lately!! Promise. I hope...

My husband & I watched the video together~Unreal...Just unreal.

I'm happy though to hear that getting your home is getting closer-I hope the test is really nothing (?) It would be nice if this was all taken care of and you could move in and be comfortable by Christmas!

Amen and amen, again!
You've said it all --

Congratulations on being another step closer to being in your beautiful new home! I am just too happy for you and your sweet family!
