Jacksonville’s Board of Realtor’s election night-more photos to follow?

Standard

20130927-111158.jpg

The last few months I have felt like I have been riding the bench professionally during a great game.  I managed to pull it together for last night’s festivities which, despite the contractions and sore feet and being overheated, made me feel a little more myself for a night which was a nice change of pace.  Everyone is joking that “once the baby arrives, you’ll be exhausted and it will slow you down”- they’ve obviously not experienced a difficult pregnancy.

Looking forward to launching some new projects and ideas and having my new right-hand-man by my side.  Subletting my body for the last year has given me time to fill MANY notebooks. . .big plans and goals for the future!

Today is also my birthday.  I had a talk with baby Garrett- included the philosophy my folks instilled that early is on time, on time is late and late is unforgivable.  I buffered the delivery and birthday conversation with the pointer that with both his father and my birthdays close to the due date, it would be lovely if everyone kept separate special days.  Last week we made it through a harvest moon, a packed labor and delivery department at the hospital and his father’s birthday.  This week I cleared my docket and rearranged a few big plans in anticipation since we are making very slow and steady delivery process.  The average first birth is fifteen hours, so reaching mid-day on my birthday I feel I’m safe to guess that we are in the clear but ANY TIME from here on out would be lovely.  Baby G, I’ll take a rain check for a day with no nausea, and getting to take a quick nap on my stomach as a present from you.  🙂

Hope you have big things brewing too!  Cheers to planning for an amazing sis-bang-boom to send out 2013 and to putting things in place and in motion for an even more amazing 2014!

Pinterest, fine, I’m addicted.

Click above so we can swap ideas and frolic on the interwebs together.  I’m guilty of  “pinteresting”at baby showers skipping the games, slow open houses, waiting forever past a scheduled Dr. Appointment, waiting for movies to start.  In short, I’m terrible at waiting.  I’m sure most folks are but as a grown up, I have come to realize I have the patience of a six year old.  May as well use those powers for good instead of evil!

Find killer party ideas, nifty out door entertaining and party game suggestions (giant Jenga or Monopoly anyone?!), paint ideas, furniture lay out suggestions and of course – HEY, I’D LOVE IT IF YOU CALLED ME ABOUT REAL ESTATE!

I swear I’ll put down my Pinterest boards to take you call!  😉

Night down in Dixie!

Standard

Last night’s Second Annual Montessori Children’s School fundraiser seemed to be a big hit!  I’m not sure what the final numbers are (one of the few drawbacks of attending rather than planning these sorts of events) but there was a great crowd, yummy food and LOTS of bidding on the silent auction items as well as live auction items.  Thanks for a great night to those who had a hand in planning and putting on the event and thanks to everyone I met who was such fun that evening. . .though, next time I will rethink the 4 inch heels. . .concrete floor and lots of standing mixed with hauling art to the car. . .I attached photos of my wins!

The Cottages at Holly Ridge

Standard

I had to let you know about a beautiful new construction community in the Holly Ridge area, a hop, skip and a jump away from the beach.  The Cottages at Holly Ridge hosted a lovely open house for us agents to preview their beautiful new homes built in sort of a crafstman-like manner.  Attention to detail, fine appointments, great paint colors and cool floor plans await in this planned and peacefull community.  Contact me today for additional information, priced, floor plans and to set up a preview for yourself, though, sadly I am sure the caterers will not be there:

Check out the amazing folks at:
