Well, we've decided to change things up on our house hunting plans.  Instead of buying our "starter" dream home..  we are going to start shopping for some investment properties!  Possibly buy two town homes, and rent one out, or maybe buy a duplex and rent half, until eventually we are able to afford to buy our home, and then rent both halves.  We discussed it with our Realtor last night, and he really thinks it's a fantastic idea for us.  That made me a little more excited.

He also mentioned how women tend to be more opposed to the idea of start with investment properties, because it delays building the "home".  Which is SO how I feel!  I'm trying to be smart and optimistic about it.   Daniel was telling us about all of the properties that him and his wife have as rentals and how if we play our cards right, they could pay for our children's college.  How wonderful that would be!  So, i'm trying hard to push my selfish, homemaking desires to the side.  I'll still be able to do that, just not with a big house and yard quite yet.  I just have to keep reminding myself that it's better for our future.  

On a side note, I've had no desire to blog much lately.  I'm not sure what my deal is.. I have a serious lack of inspiration in about every aspect of my life right now, which is not good.  I think it might have to do with diet and exercise, honestly!  Over the holidays, eating lots of carbs and not enough veggies, and yesterday was my first day at the gym in two weeks.  So, I just need to remember that and get back on that train to feel good again.  Get those endorphins flowing!
