House Hunting and Veg Fest

Good Monday morning everyone.

This is gonna be short and sweet.

House hunting is a pain in my ass!!

I found that home by my aunts and had a showing scheduled for 11am the day after it went on the market.

On my way out there, my realtor called saying there were multiple offers and our showing was canceled.


Went and saw 5 houses yesterday. One is a possibility. It is overpriced but is sitting on the market because of that. Rooms are small and really needs an addition off the back to expand the kitchen/dining/master bedroom BUT it sits on almost a half an acre, has two play structures PLUS a play house PLUS a two car garage, a shed with a loft AND a walk out basement. OHHH and there is a walk up attic area that is the ENTIRE length of the house.

Waiting to hear on getting in to see two others. If I cant find something this week, I am basically screwed for a bit. Double UGH!

Yesterday though I went to VegFest. It was an awesome time. It is a way to try vegan foods, get coupons, try different products and just have some fun and learn about the vegan culture. I didnt even eat lunch yesterday because we were fed by almost all the vendors. Yummy!

I also went in and listened to two speakers: Comedian Carol Leifer who talked about compassion and comedy and then John Salley (former Piston basketball star) who was even MORE funny than the comedian and spoke about what does it mean to be healthy. Excellent and I plan on going back next year.

All in all a great time. I bought a tube of vegan pizza cheese that is supposed to melt and stretch just like normal cheese. That is one of the things I would really miss with being vegan. Cheese...and eggs. But I bought it to see if I could fool my husband and kids. LOL.

Ok thats it for now. Keep the prayers coming that I can find a house this week. Otherwise we are gonna be living in a van down by the river. LOL.

Have a great day!

Tip of the Day:


  1. Dammit. I was hoping you'd say you got the house!!

  2. They're both very funny people! And still hoping for a good outcome for you! The house sounds like it has a lot of square footage, even if the rooms are small.

  3. Hope as the week goes on that you are having better luck finding a house and will have a couple of options to consider!
