Got a new computer


I am so excited that we finally picked up a new laptop for me today. My Dell died a sad death last week! While I was super sad, I love being able to know that this one will be working next time I turn it on:) I will be posting pictures later of my journey......

This is a picture of my old, scratch that, VERY OLD, Dell computer. While in the middle of listing a Princess TV and DVD player for sale on E-bay, it decided it was done. Just like that, silent, black screen.....gone!

And no I am not one of those responsible people who backs up her work, I am hoping that my brother Curt can pull the hard drive and get the info and pictures for me so that I can put them on my new shiny Sony Vaio laptop.

Everything so far is wonderful, but (of course there is a but, it's a computer) I cannot figure out how to configure my outlook to my works exchange server. That could be because I am a computer non-genius, or that my office is running Office 2003 and I am on Office 2007 but in my world that shouldn't make a difference.:)

Anyway, I am so excited to finally have a new laptop and that I am off the "will my computer work today" roller coaster. And yes, that is a pink keyboard protector.

The Wild Women of my life

What happens when 16 women from different states, backgrounds, and generations come together in an amazing house for one long weekend?

One Wild Weekend! I think any woman would be excited to have a weekend away.

This annual trip for me came about when my friend Cindy told me I was going with her. This is Cindy and her loving husband Tim:

Isn't she just beautiful?
Since, this is my blog, and Cindy isn't here to dispute it, here is how I remember the story's beginning.
Cindy is my friend and was my girl scout co-leader. We met at an info meeting for scouts and I asked her to help me out with the troop. Because I am a bit of a control freak, I wanted a co-leader to be a fun lady who would have a blast with the girls, and do what I needed done. Which was basically show up and go on fun trips with us. Cindy is always a blast and she loves …

Kitchen re-do.....done?

So I really did have better intentions of blogging more this year, and well as you can see I have it's been a while...

I have been abundantly blessed in my job this year. The real estate market is gradually picking up and interest rates are still so incredibly low. It has been a blast helping people sell a current home and buy a new home. I wish I could put into words how excited I am when I see "that look" on my clients face when they walk into "their" house. It's like the desire to do cartwheels tempered with the prospect of making a offer that crosses their faces at the same time. It can almost make me giggle. Then comes my favorite part...the negotiation. I LOVE IT! So, if you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell please pass my name along.

I wanted to share a bit today about another question I get quite often...

What should I upgrade in my house? How much should I do?

I am always happy to come have a look to determine what needs done and how much t…
