More About ME than you probably want to know!

By
Education & Training with Advantage Solutions Group

Thanks to Rosemary Brooks of
EVOLVE Realty & Funding Group

for tagging me! She is one cool lady!

Here are my 5:

1 I lived in a teepee for 18 months in Colorado with 2 small children. you can see a picture on my website and now that I think about it...that page has way more than 5 things you probably didn't know about me! But to be a good girl and do this right...here are the other 4:

2. My mother was Miss Arkansas 1938 and she was only 5 ft 3/4"   !!!!!

3.I ran a mini-triathlon (5 mile run/3 mile hike/5 mile bike) to raise money for the American Liver Foundation in 2003. It was physically the hardest thing I have ever done!

 4. Last year I founded a giving circle: http://www.webwomengivingcircle/ Thanks to hundreds of contributions mostly from within the real estate industry, we raised almost $24,000 and won an incredible working volunteer week in Peru with CARE and the editor of More Magazine. It was an amazing trip!

5.  I have 2 granddaughters which give me more joy than anything I could have imagined. Lily is almost 6 and my work gets put on hold when she comes to visit. I LOVE seeing the world through the eyes of a 5 year old! Her cousin, Julia, is just 5 months old and I know we are going to have lots of fun with her. Right now, she hasn't decided if I am OK or not!  

I'm nominating: Dorie Rivera-My new friend in Florence, AZ

Mary Pope-Handy- A Blogger extraordinaire in Los Gatos, CA!  

Bob Nachman- A cool man in Scottsdale AZ who is always teaching me things

Hi Brian  I love the thinking that at the end of your life you'll be more disappointed by things you didn't do than by those you did! I'm aiming for no disappointment . Thanks for sweet words about the girls-you know the way to a grandmother's heart!

Thanks for coming by

Perhaps Lily will someday run in a pageant too.  I was a Miss and then my daughter 33 years later holds the same title.

 Nice to meet you .
