When we first saw the listing for rent I got a feeling that it was the house for our family. I fell in love with the big windows in the dining room, the hardwood floors, and overall it felt like a little home to us. My husband and I are both Peruvian, born and raised and have been together since high school (almost 15 years). We have two boys and very recently we welcomed our little girl.

Once you graduate college, you're handed a diploma and—most likely—a mountain of debt. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find a job where you make enough to pay off your student loans and then, maybe, move on to the next big investment of your life homeownership. Unfortunately, according to a study by Credit Sesame , the state in which you live may affect your ability to pay your student loans. The study found that residents of West Virginia and Mississippi have the highest number of people unable to pay for their loans (as measured by student loan delinquency rates) at 18 percent, followed by Kentucky, Nevada, Oklahoma, and Arkansas at 16 percent. On the other hand, places like North Dakota and Massachusetts were the easiest places to pay off loans: These two states had the lowest rate of student loan delinquency, at six percent; followed by Utah, Washington, New York, and Illinois, which had the next lowest rate at eight percent. Since student loans are such a big obstacle for millennials achieving homeownership, is it easier to save up and buy a house in these states with low delinquency rates? I asked real estate agents in two of these states—Utah and Washington—how the economic environment in their state favors homeownership for millennials. Here's what they said: READ MORE »

I threw two holiday parties this past Sunday—a brunch with close girlfriends in the morning and an evening get together for some work friends. No, I'm not a total masochist. It's just with everyone's insane holiday parties and travel schedules, somehow this made sense to me. The earlier your party is, the better the attendance. Never again, but I think the one big thing that got me through it was Trader Joe's (and the fact that the second party was a potluck). Good old TJ's has so much holiday fare, I just went HAM there the morning before and was pretty much was set. While crushing the aisles, a little bit of what looked like burl wood caught my eyes, so I had to divert. And man, was I glad I did. Because, you guys, Trader Joe's is getting in the decorative serveware game with a few olive wood accessories. And I'm into it. READ MORE »
