Money Can't Buy Happiness, But it Can Buy Marshmallows...And that's Sorta the Same Thing!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Heritage-New Braunfels

This blog post is not about real estate.  I repeat, this blog post is not about real estate.  It's about life.

I love summer in New Braunfels.  Because I live close to Schlitterbahn, The Comal River, The Guadalupe River, San Antonio and Austin, I have no shortage of visitors during the summer...and, I LOVE it!!!

I always try to have my nieces visit at least once during the summer.  We like to catch a play at the Circle Arts Theater, hang out at Gruene Hall, get lots of trinkets at Got Toys?, go to Schlitterbahn, float the Comal River, make ice cream sundaes...and s'mores.

One night we had leftover marshmallows and decided to play "Chubby Bunny."  The point of the game is to place a marshmallow in your mouth and say "Chubby Bunny." Then you add another and another and another...each time trying to say "Chubby Bunny."  The winner is the person with the most marshmallows in their mouth at the end.

I hope you're enjoying summer.  It's so easy to get busy during this hectic time of year for the real estate business.  We tend to want to "make hay while the sun's out."  It's important, though, to take time off to enjoy your life, whether that's a weekend or a day. Because life isn't all about the money.  Sometimes it's just about marshmallows. And, the person with the most marshmallows at the end always wins.

Laurie: Summer time in our area of New Braunfels and Canyon Lake certainly is the time of the year for lots, and let me say again lots of company. Seems everyone wants to come for a visit. Why not, this area and The Texas Hill Country is such a great area to live.

Even though it is an extra busy time for us we can still sell and inspect homes and eat marshmellows at the same time.

Have a great Sunday.

Thanks Carla!  I went back and added the links.  No reason why a fun post can't provide a little information.

Laurie, your niece is so cute.  Did she win the Chubby Bunny contest?  It is nice to stop and enjoy your surroundings if you don't what is the point in working all the time.  I hope you enjoy a wonderful rest of your summer with friends and family.  --Krystal

Krystal-  Ha ha  Thank you! She did win.  She has an abnormally large mouth, and an equally abnormal amount of determination!

SaraMana- Thanks for stopping by!

Mary- She's too funny, isn't she?!

This post registered 12 stars on the C.U.T.E meter. Smart money says that neice will give some poor dad gray hair by the time she turns 16....(phone is probably already ringing).
