Thank you for welcoming me here on CWH, everyone has been really great. So as a newcomer I have a lot more people to meet and I hope I see a lot of you come by and say hi!!!
Some of you are lucky enough to be living in milder climates, still soaking up some sun and wearing summer clothes. I envy you all!!! It has turned into Fall now where I live, and though it is pretty, I’m not happy with the change in temperature. I’d love to be feeling warm weather all year round instead thinking about if I really need a scarf or not before I leave the house 🙁 Though one good thing about these colder months is Christmas. I LOVE CHRISTMAS. I love giving people presents, decorating the tree, baking xmas goodies, seeing all the decorations put up everywhere, all the lights on the houses and trees and most importantly spending time with family and friends. I’m already thinking about my Xmas shopping as it’s almost November already!!
So after Christmas I’d love to take a nice vacation to somewhere warm for a week or two. I have a credit with an airline that needs to be used up so I think I’ll take a little trip to Mexico and relax on the beach with the sand between my toes and cold drink in my hand.
Other than that all i think about is buying my first home which is a huge ordeal in itself as i live in a ridiculously expensive housing market. As a first time buyer it seems like such a daunting thing to do but recently the housing prices have fallen 10% in th last few months. If they fall a total of 25% then the prices will be in line with the average median income here which is insane. So I am saving, saving, saving, saving. Goodbye shopping sprees and random spending, it’s penny pinching time. Though frustrating, when I hold the keys to my first home, it will have all been worth it!!!
