Loretta's Giveaway Prize

  Hi everyone, hope this day has been a Blessed one for you. I finally got out of the house to get some shopping done. My intentions were to drive to Shreveport 50 miles out to shop at Belk Dept. Store to catch their hot jewelry sale, 70% off!  However, I got held up and was running about 45 minutes late for everything! So, after taking care of my pending appointment, I ended up shopping at Bealls here at home and caught their 70% off sale which wasn't as good! I 'd rather Belk, but, this is the way it happened.
  First, the prize for naming my two new dolls that my son sent me from PA. I have a set of 5 bracelets actually bangles for the one who give these doll appropriate names. They are dubbed 'kissing cousins".

The contest ends May 3rd and I'll post the winner May 4th. Come on now, let's see some more names, I'd love to give these beauties to one of my friends! (Click on all the pics to see them better).



   Now, for that project I've been working on.  Let me tell you, this was the worst time ever! We were working with so many people on getting this loan, sending this and sending that, we almost gave up!

  Then, on the day of closing, this past Monday, can you believe this, there wasn't a closing! After having all of these people working on this loan app., they made so many mistakes, until the Mister told them to forget it!
  Well, that about shut that down...but leave it to me to save the day, those folks got busy and all of that paper work was redone in less than one day after having to wait...3 months to get it done!
  Today, we were promptly at the Credit Union at 9:30 a.m., but, we had to wait on the room where we could have privacy! Those folks never came out of that room, so, not to be outdone; because I told them this wouldn't do, we pulled up and went to the realtors office, bless her heart!
 After signing our lives away and a couple of our grand's to boot, she's ours! This is our new home!

  If this is any indication of what they have done to the system, then I feel for those coming after us to buy a home. This system is awful. But, patience paid off in the end, when over ten thousand was deduct from our paper work!
  We were bless and we are happy! Never under estimate the power of prayer, plain good sense and good old-fashioned reading, writing, and arithmetic! LOL.
  My Mom's home has structural damage that's too costly to repair, so we decided to buy our own. The family is undecided what steps they want to take next. But, somehow, we plan to save her from a tear-down!
 Have a Happy and safe Holiday and if you don't hear from me, I'm moving!  Luv to all!


  1. Congrats on the new home!
    I'll have to think of a few names for you.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. What a beautiful home! Congrats

  3. Loretta! Oh my goodness! Congratulations to you and your husband on your new home! I had no idea you were looking for a new home -- but I am so, so happy for you. Wow, it's a gorgeous home. Love the New Orleans scroll-work stantions/posts on your porch. And I love that covered car port too. Wish I had one of those! Oh, I am very happy for you. One of my favorite sayings that I constantly repeat that my Father always said: The Good Lord Provides! Please extend my congrats to your hubby.

  4. P.S. I am going to have to think up more names for the 'kissing cousins' and go to your other blog again -- I can picture those bracelets on my wrist! LOL! And the funny thing is, I am not one for jewelry, EXCEPT if it is for something like NUMEROUS bracelets like that! Hmmmm... I gotta put on my thinking cap for more names... :)

  5. What lovely bracelet! Congrats on your new home I know the gardens will be beautiful when you are done!

  6. i used to sell real estate and i know your pain! the lending process is riddled with so many rules and regs and everyone is afraid of getting sued or fired. what a lovely home you choose, i love the front yard!
