Wow It has been too long!

So its been I think over a year since my last blog post and I have no idea what is compelling me to write one today but here I am.  I am sitting at work wondering what I should even jot down and nothing seems to be coming to me.

I guess the best way to go is share what has taken place in my life in the last year.  Since my last post I was offered a job at my office Keller Williams Encino-Sherman Oaks as Agent Services & Marketing Director and I have now been doing that for 5 months and it has been good so far.  I still love doing my own real estate but at the same time I get the opportunity to train and help out new agents and season vets in the business.

Another major occasion was getting engaged to the love of my life.  In December I asked my then girlfriend to marry me and I was lucky enough to have her say yes!!!!  We are getting married in April 2014.

Finally I recently adopted a 9 month old Pit Bull/Golden Mix named Nola.  I am absolutely in love with her and I am so thankful that we got her.

Besides that not too much has happened.  I don't have much time to write so thats all for now.  But I will try to write more often so enjoy!!!

Moving Time

So as many of you might know I moved recently and I never realized how much it costs to move!  So since I am on a strict budget I made it my goal to find a place that was much cheaper to buy stuff.  Then I cam across and I found my spot.  First I was looking for cuddledown meridian coverlet and everything was so much cheaper there.  After finding this I decided to do all my searching on this site.  

Search after search and nothing looked promising to me until I started looking for dinning room tables and seats and I fell in love.  While searching for indoor curved bench seating to fit my new round table that I am love with I got almost everything I needed.  I also looked for curved dining room bench perfect for round table and found what I needed.  I am not searching on the site almost daily and realized it is pointless to over pay in stores.  So take it from me sigh up and search you will fall in love.

College Friends

Guest post from: Natalie Walter

Last night I stayed up late watching The Big Chill on Satellite tv for your family. I remember my mother loving that movie when I was a child and I never understood why. Watching it last night I understood the jokes for the first time, but more than that I understood the concept behind the powerful storyline. It’s only been five years since I graduated from college, but my best friends from school (probably the best friends I’ll ever know) have already begun to feel distant. What is it about college that bonds people together so closely? Is it that the people you surround yourself with in college are there beside you when you are learning to be independent, experimenting with alcohol, suffering from sleep deprivation and very rarely have actual commitments during the hours of nine and five? Whatever it is about my college friends that made them my friends, I miss that, and I miss them. The Big Chill made me dream of us all eating breakfast together in someone’s nice fancy house after a scandalous night. Sounds like the makings for an excellent party.

Great Place for Coats

      So winter is fast approaching and since I have been born and raised in California I have no cold weather clothes.  This winter all my friends and I have decided to spend a week in the snow, which means I need to shop for winter clothes and let me tell you its not easy to come by in our malls and if they are there they are way too expensive.  All the coats I was looking at were $500+ and there wasn't a big selection.
    I decided I wanted to look for men's parkas and came across Canadas Posts website (linked in the words Men's parkas) and I was impressed!  Not only where the prices responsible they have so many selections!  They have coats from all the best brands and all at prices I was willing to pay.  The coat I ended up buying was $120 cheaper online then in the store.  So if you are from a hot state and can't find the winter clothes you want for cheap just go to their site I swear you will order something!

A patio area we can be proud to call our own

Guest post written by Gabby Stark

When we moved into our house, one thing that almost made me feel differently about it was the ugly patio area out back. But we decided that we would fix it up and make it look really nice. Well, three years later we’re finally getting around to doing something about our patio.
I’ve taken it upon myself to do most of the work on this and figure out exactly what I should do for it. I was online looking up some stuff about how much we could expect to pay for some of the materials for it and while I was doing some comparison shopping, I saw the site I read through the site a little bit and after that I decided to sign up for one of the internet packages that I found on there.
I’ve decided to put a chaise lounge out there with a really comfy cushion. I just think that would be really great to use while I’m reading or just relaxing out there. Plus, that would make me more willing to use the area that we put a lot of work and time into.
