I’m Shopping at the ActiveRain Point Store Too!

I’m Shopping at the ActiveRain Point Store Too!


Far be it from me to turn down an opportunity to go shopping so I’m taking my ActiveRain points and I’m ready to spend them.


However, as many others have said…how can I possibly pick just one??? 



Golfing at Pebble Beach Resort would be fun even though I can’t play golf and Larry hasn’t in years. However, I’d go just to see Carol Williams!!!


I wouldn’t mind buying my own offering (unless someone else invites me) because I love seeing what the Property Brothers can do and I love Ina Garten. 


And then there’s Dinner in Paris offered by  Endre Barath, Jr.. I love food, especially French Onion Soup and key to this...I get to meet Endre.

Montana Secluded Ranch Resort from Kat Palmiotti. I might pass on the mountain hike (I don’t do heights) but I’ll take all of the rest, especially the fly fishing and lake fishing. Kat…you had me at on-site chef!!!


Mr. Crappy’s Good Gas from Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist. Even though gas prices have come down a bit here I can’t remember the last time I bought it at $2/gallon!  THIS is no doubt the most practical use of ActiveRain points!!!  


I could use the Lake Adventure in North Carolina as well and it would give me the chance to meet Debe Maxwell, CRS , and Ray. I’ve seen the sunsets on Lake Wylie on Facebook so it would be so much fun to see them in person.


And finally… Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!’s Silo and Nerdin Gardens have intrigued me so the  Silobration Experience would be a fun choice. 



I just realized I spend 160,000 of my points so I need to start doing some more blogging and commenting to make them up. 


There’s still time to participate! Head to The ActiveRain Point Store is Open. Let the July Challenge Begin.

Is there any way I can spend my points on getting my co-op agents to start filling out out all their paperwork? Now I would spend all my points very quickly.

Hi Kathy,
I'm glad you'll be coming to Pebble Beach. We're going to need a beverage cart driver. Would you be willing to do that? 😊

All of the offerings have been very generous, so I decided to partake in each one after hosting the Silobration, Kathy! Looking forward to seeing what The Property Brothers have in store with designing our separate Casita space. See you soon!

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I'm with you...I really don't enjoy paper work. 

Joan Cox Just think of all of the road trips you could take...maybe you could buy a BananaRV.

Doug Dawes you could!  They don't have to be used all at once. 

Carol Williams I actually did that many years ago. The local O&G people had a golf tournament and our staffing company drove around the liquid refreshement.

So we really do need to make the point thing a real thing. It would be pretty cool if we could actually cash them in!

That's clever. Since I haven't been blogging consistently since the early years maybe I need to write more blogs so I can go blog shopping. Great post.
