103 degrees...mini vacation at Sonic with my grandbabies! - 07/23/08 10:50 PM
Dear Diary, It is July 23rd, 2008 and it is 103 degrees here in Huntsville Texas. What does one do in 103 degrees in July in Texas? Well, they go eat outside of course! Ask Marchel...she knows. When you're a Texan it shows in your eating habits. Air conditioning all around us and we decided to pick up my grand-babies and take them to SONIC! Yum yum. Greasy burgers and crispy onion rings! Yee ha! We had a good time. This is pure quality.
Meet Cecile Alayne my first grandbaby girl above! Cecile is 11 years old and going on (25 comments)

Marchel May Hurt Me For This! - 07/18/08 09:19 PM
Yes, she may. I had a closing today in the Woodlands Texas. It seemed appropriate for my friend and myself to get together while I was there! Marchel Peterson of Results Realty and myself met at one of Marchel's favorite Pubs on the water at the Woodlands Mall. Gooses Acres Irish Pub by Marchel Peterson.
We had a great visit otherwise called a ball. It was of course, 100 degrees, but the two of us ate in our favorite place...outdoors. We watched the gorgeous air conditioned yachts float by in the channel while tooting their horn at us each time (14 comments)
Please don't fry an egg on my head! - 07/16/08 06:01 PM
Please don't fry an egg on my head! Here I am in Texas. "Whew". I love showing properties but this is definitely the most trying time of the year. AND, WHEN YOU'RE TRYING TO SELL A HOUSE IN 100 DEGREES? It's just plain annoying. The other day I was showing a lovely couple from Houston a few lake houses. Wonderful conversation, strong buyers, lovely people and me. It was going pretty well even though it was a cool 108 degrees in the sun. Not to mention the humidity! Wow, and they think we have it easy! I drive a lake that (37 comments)
Wake Up On Lake Livingston...New Take On Localism Part II - 07/04/08 03:00 PM
You pour your coffee, step out on the back deck and sit under the shade of your Oak tree. You begin thinking back to the first day you learned of the treasures of Lake Livingston, Texas. It really was like a treasure hunt without the hope of finding the treasure...but low and behold, here you are. "How did I get so lucky, you think to yourself?" Oh, sure. Just happenstance. "I remember now."My honey and I were driving back home to Houston from our weekend trip. We had decided to take the back roads instead of I-45. We hoped the views (11 comments)
Wear Flowers in your Hair! - 07/04/08 12:24 PM
EVERYONE DESERVES TO GO! To Inman Connect in San Francisco! The time is drawing near...our final announcement for the top 3 teams is on Monday July 7, 2008. We're biting our nails and twisting our hair and jumping up and down waiting for the final announcement. The Makeover2Takeover contest has been a real hoot! It has reminded me a bit of what a "virtual bootcamp" might be! "Drop to the floor and give me 200 push-ups!" Thank goodness this is virtual. We have learned that there is nothing we can't do when the desire is there to do so! Active Rain (5 comments)
