Home Sweet Home!

My husband Rick and I have now been in our new home for a year!! Just goes back to the previous post about how time flies!! Now, it definitely did NOT fly by during the building process, but I have to say it was all well worth it. We have a long way to go though in the decorating department as I am making up the time I took off to build the house and catching up at work! I will be adding a slideshow from start to finish in the next few days. Needless to say until the good Lord takes me home, I AM NOT MOVING AGAIN! I've said that countless times being in the construction and real estate industry for the past 19 years and have moved 18 times during that period. This is actually putting nail holes in the wall because I'm not having to worry about selling it! That's all for now.....

Days Going By Too Fast!!

My, my.....took a look at the date on my last post and realize I am not blogging often enough! It has been crazy at work, was out of town for a Coldwell Banker Sales Rally (pic on the right of post is me, Janice, Steph and Robin, 3 of awesome team members at work!!) and then back home for hubby's 50th birthday party....time just flies and the older I get, the faster it goes. I always heard that but realize it more and more! The birthday party was a smash! Rick (above) was born on St. Patrick's Day so naturally we had the green beer and other green drinks and had karaoke/dance music which was hysterical AND tiring! Some of my best friends Carrie, Lynne Michele, Sara and Suzy and I did a play on words with the song "Oh Mickey" but of course changed the name to "Oh Ricky" and I sang while they did a cheer - it was fabulously fun and I have to say, felt like the old days in high school.....we are definitely not to old to have a blast! I am glad it's over though.....I could barely walk to the truck that night my feet hurt so bad and the next day the legs were sore from dancing and running around all night! The things we do for love......Time to go watch the first basketball game of the day even though I should be painting........

Watching the Snow

I am sitting glued to the couch and have been since 5:00 am! The snow is falling and it is breathtaking - I wish we got more snow but it doesn't happen often. I can't quite make myself get up and get something going........watching the snow is so relaxing when you don't have appointments to go to or work calling! My sweet hubby had to run in to work for a bit so he took the grocery list and is stopping on his way home to pick up everything so I don't have to get out! What a peach! I think he's just doing it so I don't have to drive......if I don't go 5 miles UNDER the speed limit, he thinks I'm reckless! Some of my friends and I call him PAPA when he moves slow.........he's hot and fixing to be 50 so he thinks he's getting old already!! I need to be working on his party since it's the 15th of this month!! He was born on St. Patrick's Day which is appropriate being the biggest beer drinking day of the year next to probably the Super Bowl!! We are having kareoke night and should be lots of fun. It's hard hitting those milestone birthdays.......but it's much better than the alternative! Must remove myself from the couch now and get something accomplished - enjoy your weather today and all we have been given!
