In real estate, the number one question I get asked during the winter is “Are you busy?” The answer is always yes. But, it isn’t always the most obvious things. Sometimes being busy can be planning new things for my clients, continuing education, restructuring how I do things, and thinking of innovative ways to improve! But I don’t care who you are, everyone has off days where they want to sit around and ...Read more
This past year was probably my favorite year ever. My girls were such fun ages and we finally got into a flow, work was great, and my family and friends were overall healthy! Plus, I really discovered what I like to do and did it more often. My 2019 goal is to continue a lot of what I did last year. To do that, I decided to look back on the top five things I ...Read more
It is, in my opinion, another great week of the year: Shark Week!! *dun dun dun dun dunn dunn!* Is there anything more relaxing than putting on Discovery Channel and learning about the ocean? And you can have it playing 24 hours a day for a week!
Because of my own excitement for this week, I thought to myself, “What are some great ways to incorporate my kids into ...Read more
It’s officially the best week of the year in my opinion, and it’s time for parade season! They are such a great way to get out and see what Mankato and our neighboring towns are all about. All-ages fun, summer sun, and that small town feeling. What more can you ask for?
I absolutely love local town days! If you need proof of just how much I like carnivals and parades… I made ...Read more

If you are a lucky one who got quite a bit back, let’s talk about great ways to spend that refund. Since, let’s face it, it kinda ...Read more
Lately it feels like everyone I happen to run into has a giant list of things they are trying to do. Don’t get me wrong, I am definitely a hater of boredom. But every once in a while I run into a friend who says they aren’t up to anything, with such a calm about it, that I know those are my favorite people!
I can definitely turn into a very run-around-like-a-chicken-<wbr/>with-my-head-cut-off ...Read more
How long is your ideal vacation?
We’re in the season where it seems like so many of my coworkers and friends are heading on vacation. It’s definitely the time of year I most crave a sunny vacation and a little vitamin D! Unfortunately for us, my husband is an accountant and it is the worst time for him to take off.
Instead, I’m already considering where we should go next and for ...Read more
The holidays: when downtime seems to be acceptable by everyone. While that time was so relaxing and enjoyable this past season, a slight dread has definitely set in this month. I felt like I needed to get back to everything I have been “putting off.” I started thinking of all my expectations for this year, and it is only January! No wonder resolutions can be so hard to keep!
One thing I am trying this ...Read more
I don’t know about you, but I become obsessed with all things Olympics whenever they are on. And, if you’ve been living under a rock, the winter Olympics are less than a month away!
Suddenly I start thinking, why didn’t I try that random sport when I was three… I could be famous by now! For instance, the luge where they sled down a track. I’m sure it is hard work ...Read more
