State Fair of Texas and its list of crazy new fried food! - 08/29/08 03:25 PM
The State Fair of Texas is coming very very soon with all the fried food you could want. If you have read my blog for very long, you know that I LOVE the State Fair. It is my favorite time of year. I like it better than Christmas. I know that is crazy, my husband reminds me every year. The State Fair has announced its list of new fried food for 2008. Fernie’s All-American Fried Grilled Cheese Sandwich. White bread sandwich with American and cheddar cheeses dipped in egg-and-milk batter, coated with bread crumbs, and fried. Chicken Fried Bacon.

What is Rotary? - 08/29/08 03:13 PM
So, have you ever wondered what Rotary is? As a member of Plano West Rotary, let me try and explain. I've only been a member for 4 years. I'm still a "newbie" in the club compared to some of our club members have been involved for 20, 30, 40 and even 50 years!! Amazing. Rotary is the world's first service club organization with 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries.

Plano, TX is the center of the Gymnastics World - Congrats Nastia Liukin! - 08/15/08 12:17 AM
Congratulations Nastia Liukin on the GOLD medal for the Women's All-Round in Gymnastics. I loved it!! America first and second - the first time in history that this has happened. NBC mentioned twice tonight that Natsia's gym in is my hometown of Plano, TX. Our city can't pay for better advertising than that!! The 2004 All-Round Olympic Champion, Carly Patterson, also worked at the same gym in Plano. So, I think this means if you want to win gold, you need to move to Plano, TX.
AMAZING - Men's Olympic Swimming Relay - 08/10/08 11:51 PM
I hope everyone was able to see the Men's Olympic 4 x 100m Swimming Relay. It was AMAZING. The commentators were saying it was the best relay race they had ever seen. It was incredible - I was jumping off the sofa, like an idiot. It is amazing what the Olympics will do to you. The French were the favorites to win the race and had been talking smack that they were going to "crush the Americans". Well, that didn't happen. The Americans beat the French and crushed the world record by 4 seconds with a new World record time of (8 comments)
Why I love Plano, TX - 08/10/08 05:44 PM
I wanted to share with everyone why I love Plano and think it is a great place to live. I have really enjoyed living in Plano,TX for the past 8 years and can't imagine living in any other city locally. 1. Location - Plano is close to Dallas without having to deal directly with big city Dallas problems and politics. Plano is the southernmost city in Collin County so we get to enjoy the best of both worlds. To the south, I'm 25 minutes from downtown Dallas and to the north only 20 minutes to the county seat of Collin County (12 comments)
I write about living and working as a Realtor in Plano, TX and the surrounding cities of Frisco, Allen, McKinney, Richardson, Murphy, Dallas and Little Elm. I hope this blog helps educate buyers and sellers in the metroplex. And I enjoy writing about other things that interests me including community events, neighborhood updates and more!
