Wednesday nights right now are the only night that we have with nothing going on. No kids to drive around and no commitments! Check out our calendar...

I have had to color code every person in our family. For example, I am pink (of course), Superman is blue, My pumpkin is green, and Noodle is purple. Then family/church stuff is in orange, Birthdays are in aqua, and immediate things to do is red.

Seriously? It's super chaotic! Some weeks I don't know how we will accomplish everything and others run smoothly. The usual hiccups come when something extra enters the scene. For example, a meeting at school for one of the girls, or kids that want to decorate a couch (more on that Sunday), or, well, anything that isn't a already known about!

Wednesday's are 2-3 cups of coffee days. (Mostly because I LOVE coffee an unhealthy amount.) While say, our busiest day, Thursday, is more like 5 or so cups of coffee. I am doing my best to balance my coffee with water but Thursday's sometimes known as bathroom days (wink face)

The problem with Wednesdays? Because I don't have anyplace to be.....I often deem them PJ days. I can work in my Jammie's, I make phone calls, update web pages, and plan out the next steps to take for work and family. It's an all around planning and busy work kinda day, usually from my sofa. So....that's all fine and well, but lets say someone rings the doorbell or wants me to meet them out someplace; yep that's the problem with Wednesdays. I wake up knowing there is no plan to leave the house and therefore throw on some sweats and a t-shirt or clean Jammie's. I often just wash my face, brush my teeth, and throw my hair in a pony tail. Not, really my best look and I have come to realize that I need some cuter Jammie's. But, I have worked out the sweat pant vs. the husband battle. I don't think any hubby would love to see his wife in sweats on a daily basis so I have some hubby approved lounge pants that work for us both. Success!

All this to say.....Wednesday is my favorite day of the week.

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. From schedules, requirements, stress, and laundry:) I look forward to this week almost as much as I look forward to date night with my Superman. 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…
