I wish, I wish...

Our home we are selling is officially "Under Contract"!!  With one big step (almost) complete, it's time to start looking for a new place to call our own.  I have been cruising the online listings but quickly became overwhelmed.  Maybe because we didn't have a clear idea of what we needed and wanted?  No... me being unprepared could not possibly be the reason for my distress. (You just keep telling yourself that Christina)  To prove that I am the ever organized, always prepared, individual that my husband says I'm not, I have a list.

Wants for our Homestead
10-20 acres  part wooded/part pasture, fenced
4 bedroom, 2 bath
outbuildings for animals 
private well
maintained road w/mail service (we are looking way out in the boonies)
wood stove or a place to put one
wood cook stove or a place to put one
and all within our budget!!!

I understand that having a limited budget will not allow me to get all my wants.  This list just gives us a starting point.  Somethings however are NOT negotiable like wood stove, maintained road, and 10-20 acres.  I have big plans.


  1. Yay! I will pray for your needs.

  2. I am seeing more people posting about their wood cookstoves. I thought these were a thing of the past; but am finding out that people are using them more and more.
    We heat with wood-- and I've cooked on top; but it doesn't have an oven.

    I hope y'all find what you're looking for.
    Thanks for the input about my washer...


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from my readers.
