Beautiful depiction of the Turkey Feast leftovers (there were hardly any) paired with a nice glass of white wine. This was a great Thanksgiving Holiday this year. The food was delicious and the company was exquisite. I was not up to any Black Friday shopping the day after this meal, that's what Cyber Monday is for, right? (3 comments)

Holiday Hours - 11/23/11 02:36 PM
As much fun I have in Real Estate, I will not be available for business purposes on Thanksgiving. I have received phone calls in the past on both Thanksgiving and on Christmas from people asking about properties either for sale or rent. The most mind boggling phone call was at 7:30am on December 25th last year. I like buyers who are motivated, but those who are that motivated that they will call while I am enjoying the holidays with my family are stepping over the line. What I don't understand is the sudden urgency to find a new home in the (3 comments)

FHA Bridal Registry - I'm doing it! - 11/22/11 11:54 AM
I read a blog about the FHA Bridal Registry here in the 'Rain a while back (I can't remember who wrote it or when) and I just thought that was the neatest thing ever. I told myself that if that day comes that I will get engaged I will surely be setting up my own FHA Bridal Registry. Now, as I posted in my blog yesterday I'm Engaged!! to the sweetest man ever. My first mission before I go tackle anything else, is to set up my FHA Bridal Registry. I called my trusty loan officer, the one I trust the (2 comments)
I'm Engaged!! - 11/21/11 05:07 PM
My boyfriend just proposed to me this Saturday, it was a bit unexpected, yet not out of the blue and of course completely welcomed and of course I said YES! We had discussed getting married one day, but I was not expecting the proposal yet. We have been together for 7 months and in that time he has become like a father to my twin daughters and we fit together so well. We have set the date, it will be in about a year and a half, giving us pleanty of time to prepare and plan. I just wanted to share (6 comments)
