The Leap

We are homeowners. For finally! It took 4 months from start to finish, but Brett and Corrine were generous enough to let us live in their Mesa house while we went through the whole process, so we are very grateful to them for that. Also, Adam, Frankie’s brother, was our real estate agent and we put that poor boy to work! So, we are really excited! Our first house! I think we got a screaming deal and it has all the elements we were looking for. We’ll start moving in hopefully by next weekend. Because I don’t have an income, the lender had me sign a disclaimer saying basically that I have no legal claim to that house. I said, “so, if Frank takes off on me, I can’t get his house?!” She didn’t think I was funny. They didn’t think I was funny when we started the process either. They asked me to list my occupation and I said, “trophy-wife.” Come on, that’s hilarious. So, my daughter and I will soon be living in Mr. Parmenter’s house. Sounds a little scandalous, right?


  1. Trophy wife is hilarious and true!! Don't fight the truth.

    Our home is actually in my name only (because I was the only one with a job when we bought it). So I could run off and sell the house and keep the profits for myself. MWAA HAA HAAA.

    Let Marcelo stay awake worrying over that one!!

    And congrats on the home!! I can't wait to see pictures of you cutting down that cactus. And the new paint. Because seriously, it's an ugly color.

    I love your house!!

  2. true story, Bing. it IS a terrible color, but a great house.

  3. Congratulations on the home! I never had to sign that paper, and I never had an income. Oh, well. I think the trophy wife job should get a little more pay, eh?

  4. trophy wife? more like .....nothing rhymes with trophy. i'm a loser. cant wait to see it and give it it's judd baptism. that means take a dump in it for those of u who don't speak judd.

  5. Hooray! Frank finally owns a home! I knew Frank could do it! Frank is a winner!
    I also love the house.
    Now all you have to do is learn to make tamales and to salsa dance, cuz you know there are going to be some kick-ass block parties!

  6. I am so glad everything worked out! It was a looooong process. I really do wish we were there to help you move. Frank was a lifesaver helping us. You too, watching Montanna. Yea for the new homeowners! I can't wait to see pictures once you guys get in and settled!

  7. I think living in Mr. Parmenters house does have a deliciously naughty ring to it.
    I'm so excited for you guys.

  8. I would have laughed at trophy wife, that is awesome! Those bank people are too serious. We are so excited for you and can't wait to come and visit!


tell me what you're screaming
