I just put an old lady's maxi pad through the wash and all I can think is this is my life...

A Big Step Towards Becoming A Grown Up.

Turkey Butt and I have discussed finances with my bank's financial advisor with the purpose of seeing if we can afford a mortgage! Turns out we can :) Our only issue is finding a way to save the potential down payment (5% + lawyer fees). Oh, and finding our home! This is my life!


  1. Hi Elle! (Is your name actually Elle, or is that part of your fabulously clever first letter thing?) Thanks for your comment on my blog! Were you reading A Walk in the Woods? I haven't read that one yet, but I love Bryson!

    I've been reading your blog; love it! I've always wanted to venture to your part of the world.

    I thought I'd let you know, after reading your posts on Apartment Therapy and the possible reality venture you're considering, I'm a designer and I'm happy to shoot you some tips via email if you're ever stuck. Just gimme a holler!

    And good luck with the house thing! My hubs and I are in the same boat; saving, looking, saving, looking, saving and looking. GAH!

  2. Hey Lisa,

    If you ever make it up my way, let me know! I will give you the full scoop on the best places to see and the best things to do. I LOVE my home province!

    As for decorating tips, when Turkey Butt and I finally get settled into our new apartment (we move in Aug 15th) I will definitely be hitting you up for some suggestions!

    Thanks for following! Welcome to my life :)
