Noodle can sing?

I'm not really sure why or when we started calling her Noodle. It could have been when she was still a squirmy little baby or because she was a lanky toddler. Or honestly because her name starts with an N and I was cooking spaghetti for dinner one night and called her that by mistake and it just stuck. Noodle, actually has many nicknames, noodle, nattie, nat nat, nattie no butt (she really hates that one), etc...

Regardless of what nickname we call her by, she almost (she's a teenager) always answers with a smile and willing attitude. At the beginning of this school year, superman and I were really worried about how high school would affect her personality. You see our other daughter, uh hem Pumpkin, was quit the punk freshman year. And we were sincerely hoping to not have to endure the frustration again. Much to our surprise, Noodle, has had no suck punkish qualities so far this year. She is loving freshman year and getting involved with band, FCA, theater and orchestra. She will have an "extras" role in the fall plan and to our surprise auditioned and made it into the schools talent show. Surprised because, SHE NEVER SINGS FOR US.  I've been known to listen through her door when she is practicing guitar, but still she would sing so quietly that I could barely hear her.We hadn't seen the act or really met the girls she would be performing with as they had only practiced after school before theater rehearsal. 

So with much built up anticipation, Superman and I sat smiling as tears rolled down our cheeks while watching her for the first time sing beautifully with her friends. I'm such a proud momma I wanted to share it will you.

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...
