Devon's Choice + Cash Giveaway

Devon's Choice (1)Devon's Choice Life holds no surprises for Devon Murphy. Her life consists of keeping tabs on her aging Irish father, working part time at a coffee shop, and building her online graphics design business. Devon’s only tricky situation is a shallow relationship with the pampered and affluent Michael Turner, who sees her as just another woman to conquer. Following his father’s death, Brandon’s only goal is to expand the family business and live life on his own terms. That is, until he walks into the coffee shop one snowy evening and meets the enchanting, red-haired barista behind the counter. But can Devon and Brandon’s attraction for each other be strong enough to help erase their deepest disappointments and renew their faith in God?


 Excerpt: Brandon looked over at her neutral expression. Whatever kind of relationship she had with Michael Turner didn’t seem to be making her happy. At that moment, all he wanted to do was to make her forget all about the jerk. As if sensing him watching her, Devon turned her head enough to make eye contact with him. The faint, milky glow from the streetlight showed enough of her features for him to see a soft blush warm her cheeks. Under her dark lashes, he watched her sea green eyes glint invitingly as her soft lips turned up at the corners. In that moment, his resolve to keep the date on a friendly level came crashing down.

The Benefits of Refinancing

Refinancing your mortgage means you pay off the mortgage you have now and get another one. There are a lot of good reasons for refinancing a home, and getting a loan with a lower interest rate so your monthly payments are also lower is one of the best. 

The Most Common Reasons to Refinance
• Shortening the term of your mortgage. Without changing your monthly payment by much, with a lower interest rate you’ll be able to get a shorter term on your loan, which will save you a lot in interest payments.

• Switching to an adjustable-rate or fixed-rate mortgage. If you have a fixed-rate mortgage, and the interest rates drop, you are paying more for you loan that you need to. If you refinance, you can change to an adjustable-rate and get the lower rate. The opposite is also true. If you have an adjustable-rate loan and the interest rate has gone very high, you can change to a lower fixed-rate loan. A fixed-rate loan at a low interest rate is your best option because you don’t have to worry if the interest rates rise. 

• Accessing equity to get a large amount of cash for big expenses. These expenses may include college tuition, home remodeling, paying off debt or taking a vacation. The money can be spent for anything, but the homeowner should be careful about taking cash for large expenses. Home remodeling is considered good because it actually increases the value of the home. Paying off high-interest debt is a good idea if the homeowner doesn’t immediately incur more debt once they have the available credit. If they simply get into more debt, it could result in bankruptcy.

A Good Financial Move
If you can reduce your mortgage payments and shorten the term of your loan, or build equity more quickly, then refinancing is a good move. You should carefully consider your options and ask yourself how long you plan to continue living in your current home, and calculate how much you’ll save by refinancing. Remember to include any fees charged by your current mortgage lender. If you plan to move in the next few years, refinancing may not be your best option. 

Homeowners should take the time to define their financial situation and objectives. When they have a clear idea of these, they can look into refinancing as a useful tool for improving their finances.

Look Ahead to Baby with Outlook + Giveaway


Whether you are expecting your first or fourth child, you know there will be things you will need to help you make it through those early months with ease. Outlook has everything your baby needs to make those newborn months easier. New moms often need those little things the most. Things that add just a little extra peace of mind, safety or comfort are usually the ones moms love the most.

We love the Outlook Sleep Pod for new babies. This cover works on car seats, strollers and baby carriers to protect your baby from wind, rain and sun. This is a great adjustable cover that works to shade your child, give them dark for rest, or simple protect them from the elements as you go in and out of stores. While it is most often used for infant seats, it is adjustable to fit on strollers for children up to 4 years old! This is a great investment that will give you peace of mind, and your baby comfort.
Another great addition to a new mom wish list, are the Cotton Stroller Liner available on Outlook. If you like to offer a bit of extra cushion and fashionable flare to your stroller, these are perfect. Available in multiple patterns to match the hottest looks in baby gear, they are simple to change in and out. Strollers are often rather hard and uncomfortable for your toddler to sit in. These cotton stroller linens offer some extra comfort while upgrading the stroller to a more fashion friendly look. Not only do they work in strollers, they are perfect for car seats and baby carriers too!

As long as you are looking for ways to keep your baby or toddler comfortable, don't forget the Car Window Shades from Outlook. These were favorites for summer sun when our kids were younger. Nothing is more important than keeping your babies happy and safe. These shades in various sizes will fit perfectly into your car window. Not only do they offer shade for an easier ride, they offer protection from the sun’s rays. No sunburn or irritation for your babies when these are on the windows.

Outlook has all of your much needed accessories for that new baby. Not only can you give your children a safer experience, you can make it comfortable for them in the process. Invest in these and other great baby and child care accessories on Outlook.


One winner will receive an Outlook Sleep Pod, Cotton Stroller Liner and Car Window Shade Single.
