I like spreadsheets

I admit it, I love excel. I use it for just about everything I need to keep track of. Time blocking, finances, real estate, and of course my menu and grocery lists.

I am on a quest to keep things at my finger tips because this year is going to be crazy with my pumpkin graduating from High School and then going off to college and my real estate business is really booming right now. So instead of re-creating my menu every week I plan to spend the next couple of weeks making a menu with a grocery list (my goal is 10 weeks) and then printing several copies of both. I will keep them in my newly made family menu binder, that will also include take out menus and coupons. 

The first two weeks I am taking from my current favorite cookbook "Now Eat This!"by Rocco Dispirito You can find it here on Amazon. I used his menu right from the book.

Check out my week 1 menu HERE

I will finish the menu for next week and get it to you next Wednesday. 

Our favorite recipe this week was by far the South of the Border Scramble with Chorizo and Salsa. I posted the recipe here so you can try it too.

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…
