Filed under Junk Drawer.


OMG, my mom is a hoarder. I didn’t realize it until all the kids got together to fix up her place. She has been in the hospital for back surgery and then at rehab center, but now in order to be released to come home they need to do an inspection to make sure her… More

James and Heather

Filed under Junk Drawer.


Went house hunting in the morning. Saw four places and none of them were remotely purchaseable. This might be more difficult than I thought. In the evening got together for dinner with one of my favorite couples. Thanks for dinner James and Heather! Can’t wait to hang out again soon.

Pink Papaya Spa & Cocktail Party

Filed under Junk Drawer.


I love me some Pink Papaya! This is a cosmetic line that you purchase during a home event, similar to scentsy candles or Tupperware parties. But with this, you get to try samples of make-up and be all girly. Now, I don’t wear make-up that much…as a matter of fact due to all my allergy… More

Filed under Junk Drawer.


Hot Damn! We are getting prequalified to purchase a home. Initial number crunching and our loan person said with our credit, we could afford a castle.

Happy Valentine’s Day! JH was planning on coming to work for lunch, but had to reschedule for Friday. I have partners in town and a lunch meeting I can’t reschedule. Boo. Although I do enjoy seeing my partners I was hoping for a romantic lunch mid-day.

Job Interview Prep

I have to prep for a job interview! I wasn’t looking to jump positions within MS, but had lunch with an old acquaintance and as we were catching up found out my skill set matches a position she is hiring for…turns out I’m going to interview for it. I am nervous. It’s been five years… More
