Looking forward to watching the All Stars game.
My hero, Tomas Vokoun was selected as one of the three goalies for the Eastern Conference. Also, my sweetie, Kimmo Timonen, is a defenseman for the Eastern Conference. I love these guys and miss them much. Wish they were still here.
So, guess which conference I’m cheering for? LOL
Valentines Day is so close to my birthday, I have always loved the holiday. Plus, I’m a romantic at heart.
All the stores have candy on their shelves – there’s no escaping the holiday. Even though I’m single this year and don’t have a sweetheart right now.
Just clicking around on the internet, I came across a really cool site that takes photos and changes them up into this awesome artwork. Somebody looking for great valentines gift ideas could make one and have a unique special gift. Now THAT’S romantic.
If my future sweetheart is reading my blog, this is your hint, darling.
I was in Houston so much on business a couple years ago that it feels like a second home. I love the Woodlands area, and the new Sugarland area is exploding with new stores and new homes.
The last time I was in Houston, I made a little side trip through some of the neighborhoods around the university. I stopped in a liquor store to pick up a small bottle of vodka and Kahlua to make White Russians, but changed my mind when I saw the gigantic display of tequilas on the shelves. I have never seen so many different brands and bottles!
I ended up buying four different kinds of tequila and we spent the rest of the night doing taste test shots. OMG – so much fun!
Just got an email from my friend, Annie. She is planning a trip to Disney for Spring Break with her son and his girlfriend. They’ve gone twice a year ever since he was 3 years old.
Â Her son actually attended Disney University last year and is hoping to get hired full time there. They have a thorough program that focuses on customer service and safety issues. Sounds like a great opportunity for him if it works out.
The Disney hotel she stays at charges $800 per night. OMG! That’s a house payment every night!
Now that I’m making plans for my trip to Florida, I’m thinking that a condo or little vacation home might be a good investment for me. I seem to end up in Florida at least 4 or 5 times a year on business. It would be nice to have my own place instead of being in a hotel every trip, and it would give someplace to go when I want a quick getaway.
WhenÂ the IFA is over, I might start looking for aÂ Florida villa or condo to buy while I’m there.Â I can rent it out to tourists when I don’t want it for my own use. And maybe even retire there someday – although that is at least 12 years away. By then, it might be close to paid for!Â I think I’m talking myself into this new plan – I like it!
