It was definitely hard to top yesterday. We had so much fun in the Sonoma valley eating at a cute French bistro and visiting two car dealerships, and shopping at Costco. Today we get back to reality, although we have great memories that we'll ta... Read more

We had a great day today! We found a great deal on a truck (it's a Chevy, sorry KING_SLAYER) that was discounted nearly $7000 off the regular price. It's got all the bells and whistles, and will be great for boat-towing when the time comes. ... Read more

Day 93 - The Last Hole
Monday, March 02, 2015      8 comments

I put on a pair of cargo pants that I haven't been able to wear in a long time. They are loose! And to top it off, when I cinched the belt I usually wear, I had to put the prong into the last hole. When I bought this belt back in August, I could... Read more

Happy March 1st! February is our shortest month, and yet I'm always surprised when it's over. Why is that? We had a great weekend, even with the bad news of losing our home buyers. Our agent is still really stoked to find a new buyer f... Read more
