road trip

Kate spade car
Lately, I love holiday weekends.  I used to stay in DC and feel obligated to work. Except nobody else is in DC. This weekend is summer's last hurrah and people are taking advantage of the three day weekend by escaping.

Fall-trends-that-make-me-cringe
There's certain fashion trends that should never be resurrected.  Leisure suits and polyester comes to mind.  So does neon and leggings.   The "fashion" of the the 90's is another.

riveting rooms

New zealand house
I'm still dreaming of an amazing vacation and this house in New Zealand takes the cake.  It's for sale, not for rent but wouldn't it be amazing if you could rent it? The home is on the edge of a nature preserve and includes this beautiful indoor swimming pool.  Can you imagine your view after your morning swim?  Click here to see the rest of the house.

We're dog sitting this weekend and it's so fun to have this big galoot around the house.  I've wanted a dog forever but we have an ancient cat who wouldn't take kindly to a puppy.

novel novels

I love a good thriller.   Finding two that I wasn't able to unravel immediately makes these two books must reads.

It's the last two weeks of August and DC is a ghost town.  Congress is on break and the city is on vacation.

diy disaster

Diy-disaster
In my mind, I'm a Picasso.  In reality, I have a tiny bit of creativity and occasionaly, I produce a good project. In this case, it was a DIY disaster.

lunch break

Lunch-break
Last week, I had a really bad day.  A deal was blowing up.  The agent on the other side of the deal was being a nightmare.  I had to get my broker involved.  Plus my client wasn't happy because the deal was blowing up. Yea. Doesn't this sound fun? Days like that frustrate me.  The good news:  it worked out for my client and we're under contract again.  With an agent that is sane which is always encouraging.
