Last Night of Puppy Sitting - 09/30/09 06:34 PM
We've had a guest by the name of Payton for the past few weeks and tonights our last night with him. I'm sure he'll visit in the future, but my kids are sad to see him go. We have two dogs of our own, but that doesn't seem to make it less difficult for them to say goodbye. I've never had a puppy of my own before, so it was definitely an experience I will not forget. From day one I learned that puppies are very much like toddler's and can never be left alone, but I also learned that they are (7 comments)
What You Need to Know about Credit Scoring - 09/29/09 09:58 PM
Below is great information about Credit Scoring written by Larry Bettag. Via Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage: Credit is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES IN getting a loan today. My client tell me all the time that "I PAY MY BILLS ON TIME, BUT MY PEOPLE SAY MY CREDIT STINKS. Maybe I'll just pay off my credit cards today.....Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!" Truthfully, there is more to a credit score than just making your payments on time or paying off your credit. In fact paying off all your credit today could be a bad move. Needless to say, I've broken this down so that the (2 comments)
It's never too late...... - 09/27/09 07:37 PM
It all started a week ago as my husband and I sat at a child's birthday party together. After being married for over a decade and having two children I found out something about my husband that I never knew before.As we sat together at the bowling alley watching the kids have fun, my husband and I discussed his upcoming birthday. During this conversation I found out that he never had a birthday party. I had a few birthday parties that I still remember to this day and couldn't believe my husband never got to experience a party just for him.So (14 comments)
Speechless Sunday: Who broke the rules? - 09/20/09 09:21 PM
Not so Speechless Sunday: Can you tell by this picture that dogs are NOT allowed on furniture? I'm not sure who broke the rule first, our Pug Ace, Payton the beagle we are puppysitting or if it was a joint effort. Not only are they both on the sofa, but Payton's baby blanket is between them.
Seller & Buyer Beware: Friends Don't always Save you Money - 09/15/09 02:16 PM
When it comes to a real estate transaction hiring a friend may not always be the best choice. I often hear: "My friend is a mortgage broker and is going to save me money if I use them.""My friend is an inspector and is going to save me money if I use them.""My friend works for a title company and is going to save me money if I use them." Just because they are your "friend" doesn't necessarily mean they are going to save you money or are even qualified to do a successful job. Did you know your mortgage broker "friend" is constantly (13 comments)

Are we Born Competitive? - 09/12/09 07:27 PM
I LOVE SOCCER! I love coaching it, I love watching it and I love seeing my children excel at it. Practice for the fall soccer season started last month and today was our first game. I was like a child on the first day of school wondering about all the unknowns. Who will listen?Who won't listen?Who will get tired?Who will run until their little feet can't run anymore? Although after three weeks of practice I usually know what to expect from children. However I NEVER know what to expect from their parents. There are parents that cheer their child on. (4 comments)

Napping, What's going on? - 09/06/09 10:37 PM
This week was a blur for me, I'm not even sure if I ate or slept. Between writing offers, receiving offers, showing properties, coaching soccer, puppy sitting and having a sick husband it flew by in the blink of an eye.I'm not sure how I survived, I must have been running on pure adrenaline because the crash was soon to follow. Yesterday, I decided to take a break from working and watch a movie with my family. Needless to say I missed the entire movie and it wasn't even dark out yet.Then today as I was getting ready to attend a clients house warming party (13 comments)

FOTO FRIDAY - How can something SO small cause SO much trouble? - 09/04/09 11:18 PM
My husband and I agreed to puppy sit for the cutest little beagle. Our dogs were not puppies when we rescued them, so I didn't know what I was signing up for. Well, within minutes of Payton's arrival I quickly realized puppies are much like toddlers, always getting into something and always on the go.
How can one little puppy get into SO much trouble? (20 comments)
