Happy Halloween!


Pinterest Monday Link Up & Pretty Little Liars Special Surprise!

Hello Monday!WHAT IS UP WITH THE WEATHER IN KY?It is winter outside and I am not happy about it :(Ok let's dive right in shall we?  I've made a mistake ha.
 I made an error in my previous post about the PLL Halloween Special that aired last Tuesday ... that didn't mean the season was actually starting back :( sigh!!! It was just the Halloween Special. I am so sorry for all of you who's hopes I got up! I was just as upset as you ha, I was SO ready for it to be back every Tuesday!

The REAL 3rd season won't start until January 8, 2013 to be exact ;)
I am now counting down the days let me tell you!

How crazy was that Halloween episode??
I mean I literally screamed outloud twice and Chris was making so much fun of me and my "Nancy Drew" show, which is what he calls it haha.
(However, somehow he always ends up watching it with me and then will ask me a question from a part he didn't understand ha!) Love it! 

Soooo.... to make up for my mishap on the season start da…

Sunday Recap

Still waiting for Sandy here in RVA. Yesterday, we spent most of the day indoors. Here are some quick pics from the day. 

 The kids are out of school and it is barely raining but maybe it is to come. What will we do today?

Pinterest Link Up, Best Chili Recipe & Sunday Funday!

What a weekend... and boy did I need it! I actaully got to get some things done and rest  :) I got my nails done ... 
OPI "Pink Friday" 
I played with my babies while taking pics to list their momma & daddy's house this week sometime, anyone looking for a ranch in Hamburg? ha. :) 
We fed the baby and observed the usual "milk coma" that he falls into as soon as he eats ha Then we had York Peppermint Patties and got them all stuck in our teeth (well Connor did at least ha!) 
This HAS TO STOP!  My Orange Leaf obsession is still reallllly bad.  Strawberry White Chocolate is the BEST flavor there is. Period.  Reese Cups and Marshmellows totally seal the deal too.  YUM. 

I enjoyed a nice Saturday ... around the house, cleaning, doing laundry, grocery, Chris built a fire, I bought the new The Knot in hopes of skimming through the 850 wedding dresses to find one that I like because I STILL have not found a dress :( Then I bought a bag of my favorite Halloween/Fall candy ... C…

Sandy's Menu Planner

I am early on my menu planner since it appears that we are going to have monsoon rains the next couple days. Thankfully, we have a generator that is hard wired to our power box so I am hoping if we do loose power in the storm, I can do some crock pot cooking. Here's my plan....

Saturday - Chicken Cheese Steaks with French Fries (cook extra chicken to use later)

Sunday - Chili in the crock pot

Monday - Chicken Caesar Salad (use extra chicken from Saturday)

Tuesday - Whole Chicken cooked in crock pot with carrots, onions & potatoes

Wednesday - Ghost Individual Pizzas (found this recipe in the current issue of Richmond Family Magazine)

Thursday - Alyson & Michael on their own

I am off to brave Martins....yikes! It could be ugly.

Tenant Operations Overview

Operations Overview for Tenants(Action Plan from Tenant Perspective) The company will be well thought out and utilize time saving technology such as a website that allows potential tenants to go thru the entire process of becoming tenants without ever having to come thru an office door. The website will start with a list of available properties, these properties will be advertised on other real estate websites as well as our own. The potential tenant can view virtual tours of the properties, get rental information, school district info and more. At this time the tenant can come into the office and check out a key for the property after placing a small, refundable key deposit. If the potential tenant likes the property, they can go online and fill out a digital application and use a credit card for the application fee. The fee will be 35.00. This 35.00 covers a credit and background check at a cost of 20.00. The additional fifteen dollars covers the expense of the website an…

Executive Summary

Executive Summary46% of millionaires invest in real estate. Thousands of books are published every year that support real estate as a way to grow financial wealth. In these books, the number one piece of advice you will find, is to place the properties you buy with a property management company.

This business plan outlines the ambitions of a company that aims to be Mobile's largest residential property management firm. Our goal within the first year is to aquire a  minimum of two hundred properties. Two hundred properties at an average rental price of six hundred dollars a month will be one hundred and twenty thousand dollars of gross rent collected per month. At an average management fee of 9% this will be ten thousand and eight hundred dollars of gross profit for the management company.

In addition each property will be charged a setup/leasing fee of one hundred and fifty dollars.  This will amount to an additional thirty thousand in income.

Other additonal cash creators for us wil…

Bird Love?

My mom and I attended Realtorfest on Tuesday of this week. It was great and I loved hearing the keynote from Mike London. After the morning session and trade show,  I have to admit  my mom and I skipped out and we hit one of my favorites, For the Love of Jesus Thrift.

Here is what I found....I think my total was around $10.

The owls were $1 for the pair of bookends.

One is missing an eye.  I can't decide whether to paint them or not? And to be honest, I am not even sure where to put them but I liked the look.

These birds were a little pricier at $4 each. And even though they are a little scary looking, I was still attracted to them. I think they are brass but I am not sure I will try to polish. That is so much work and honestly I don't have that kinda time these days....I may just paint. My mom liked them as is so maybe that is how they will stay.

And because I am also very attracted to glassware, this could not be left in the store for 50 cents.

I thought it would be good for silve…
