Here are some fabulous books on decorating that I've purchased over the last few if I could only make some decisions on what I really want! Five years in the house and not one completed room, lol!

Decorate from my FB friend and blogger Holly Becker! Check out her out over at!

Check out Grace Bonney's website as well at

I adored Thom Filicia when he was on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy...

And last, a great book from what used to be one of my favorite magazines, Domino! Available at and a few I bought at Anthropologie! Good luck...I sure need some! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone!

Breakfast for a Friend

I had a bet with a buddy and fellow Realtor of mine, David Lorton at Exit...I graciously lost and he earned a much deserved win! The winner got breakfast brought to their office...

David was precious...he said "Oh, I was expecting a biscuit from McDonald's"...I laughed and said he deserved breakfast on a silver platter!

What a great guy to work with and to know! Good luck in 2012 David! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone!

White Chicken Chili

Recipe from my sweet friend Dwayne LaForce! Some of the girls asked for it this weekend, so I thought I'd just share it with everyone!

Ingredients 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1 medium onion, chopped 3 cloves of minced garlic Brown these in the pot you are using until chicken is done. Add: 1 can northern beans 1 can navy beans 2 cans green chilies 2 cans chicken broth 2 t. cumin 2 t. curry powder 1 t. oregano 1 t. white pepper 1-2 t. cayenne pepper 1/2 t. chili powder You can spice to taste of course, but this is just perfect! If you like it a little more soupy, just add either a cup of water or more broth! I serve it with Monterrey Jack cheese and fresh flour tortillas! Enjoy! - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone!

Starting the New Year Out Right...

Well so far I've managed to give up some things I love, but know they aren't good if you are trying to shuck a few pounds!  Coke, white anything, chocolate (will splurge on the weekend!), chips, junk food  and a huge fave, french fries...Strictly drinking water with lemon...the girls laughed at me at work since they know I don't like lemon in general!  I've found this from Jillian Michaels via Pinterest and thought I'd try it...I can tell you this, while drinking the water hasn't killed me, I have realized that there is no way I can drink 60 oz. a day!  I've had it all day long (following coffee before I can speak civilly) and only managed half the gallon...will keep trying though!

If you haven't discovered Pinterest yet, I warn's highly addictive!  You can find anything and everything and it is great for discovering new things and inspiring you!  You have to have an invite (for some reason, lol) so if you need one, message me on Facebook or here and I'll send you one!

More From Eden Isle...

Well, it's back to work today...the start of 2012 and we were all pumped up in sales meeting this morning!  Just thought I'd take a second to share some more photos from the weekend it's back to the grindstone!

Please also keep in mind that if you or anyone you know is interested in an Eden Isle property, I can help!  Have a great day!

Eden Isle...

While taking a walk yesterday, I of course drug my camera with me!  The architecture up here in Eden Isle is very diverse...I love it...especially since it's located on the lake...very peaceful up here and a wonderful place to explore!  Here are a few pics...

This home is my absolute favorite...and not because the owners are the folks who have IO Metro (one of my favorite places to shop!), but because I'm a modern design freak as you well know!

These exterior glass lights are fabulous...very unique and something to see up close as this picture does NOT do them justice!

This is a photo of Hillside Drive...and trust me, it's WAY steeper than it looks, lol...quite a hike for someone who is totally out of shape!

All the streetlights in Eden Isle are like the one depicted...Not great lighting at night, but definitely original and quaint!

And not to be morbid, but I guess I am...a reminder that animals that have been shot may wander for a while before dying...this one was laying in between where I was walking and the golf course...glad there were no kids around!

This is Stoneflower, a home designed by E. Fay Jones.  It is absolutely awesome!  The pic below is from the Stoneflower website where you can read more details about it, as well as view the photo gallery.

And last, but certainly not least...the Lake Ice Lakehouse...thanks for the use of it my dear friends DJ and Michele...what a great place to get away from it to head home...back to reality and a new year!
