{MAY DAY}
Follower Fest&Giveaway

 Welcome to Baxtron{Life}
I'm Courtney.
I'm not a fashion blogger…
though sometimes I still like to play dress-up.
This blog is about 
and 
everything I love:
Family
Jesus, 
Food
Beauty, 
& other 
This is my husband, Jerry.  
He's kind of a big deal.
 And this is our daughter, Zion.  
She has monopolized the real estate of my heart.
 We live in New York City.  
Where do you live?
It's totally crazy not always easy living in this city.
But, we're pretty settled…for now.
Thank you for visiting,
We're so happy you came by.

    ReplyDelete
  52. :) What was the tipping point for you?

    ReplyDelete
  53. The prices for entire homes - 4-5 bedrooms with pools and everything...the mortgage would be what we are paying for rent now...that's unreal. 

    ReplyDelete
  54. Ahhh yes. That is most likely the thing that will have us leaping ship eventually. Unless we come upon a ridiculous sum of money.

  58. I love the cost of living grid.  We're in South Carolina...so I can sympathize with you!!  SO SO SO expensive to live here compared to when we lived in Texas.  That said, I'm not moving back to Texas...ever!
