I haven’t written an ActiveRain blog post in almost a year…. because I’m not as much of a Realtor as I used to be…I was a FULL-TIME (and then some) Realtor for 8+ years. I built a reputable business and had established my name in the St. Louis Metro East area. I helped a lot of buyers and sellers...
Here’s my highly anticipated year-end reading summary… complete with a picture of me in my pajamas standing next to a pile of books.I have to start by saying that this isn’t a very complete pile… or list.In our last house, I always cleared off a section of shelf in January – and throughout the ye...
We did something truly terrifying this past weekend… we bought a bed!  I have had SO MUCH anxiety over this purchase.I stalled as long as I could, but with our closing day less than a month away (and my mom coming down right away to help us move) we decided we really couldn’t put it off any longe...
I’m sitting here in a brand new house feeling nostalgic…It’s my first full day sitting in the new Mockingbird Crossing model home, and I have all these mixed emotions.  There’s still a lot of work going on in here… painters are doing some touch-ups… movers are adding and subtracting furniture and...

As many of you know, I just got back to Florida after spending THREE WEEKS in Illinois.  (Obviously I'm not all that busy with work just yet...)  But, it was nice to be up there... I was there in time for my new niece's arrival.  I helped my mom cook (one) Thanksgiving dinner.  I spent lots of ti...
Our swinging doors and opening windows have been installed.  (Our sliding doors are still piles of glass in the garage, and I imagine our mitered glass breakfast nook window is in that pile, too.)  But, here’s the interesting part.  I think our doors were installed inside-out. The vast majority o...
When Matt and I walked through our house yesterday we noticed there was a mistake in our master shower.  When we remodeled the bathroom in our first house, our two shower heads didn't turn out quite as planned, so we are determined to get this one right.  We're supposed to have two shower heads -...
