I have never participated in #ASKAWAYFriday and thought it would be a great way for my readers to get to know me better. For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Mrs. Tee asked me and I hope that you enjoy my answers.…

Hurrah! You did it! You are twenty weeks pregnant!
Congratulations on reaching this important milestone on your first ride on the pregnancy roller coaster. You have just ricocheted out of the loopy and bendy bits of the ride and embarked upon the long, steep climb before the sheer vertical drop.
Having suffered through the early stages…Continue

After I started getting myself together after my divorce, it came the time when I was ready to start dating again. It had been almost a decade since I was out there so I was obviously clueless. Luckily, I had great friends to support me. A girlfriend of mine convinced me to try online dating and gave me a few pointers before I jumped in. She warned me that…Continue

It doesn't feel like it’s been almost 4 years since I was divorced, but I do feel like I've come a long way. Working on remodeling my interior during my transition was outrageously more difficult than Eva 2.0—The Exterior.…Continue

I had been seeing this guy for the past few months. Let’s call him “McDreamy.” Just so you know, this man is the package. He is smart, successful, motivated, honest, romantic, health-conscious, and fiercely hot. I thought that we instantly clicked, and we were on the same page on a lot of things about love and relationships. When I told him “I believe a family…Continue

2 Sleeps Peeps; that’s all.
I’ve lifted up my shirt maybe 5,793,421 times because every twist, lift and crunch feels like I released 497 stretch marks. And then, No. Not so… Not one… YET. They’re there though; I feel them…Continue

I wanted to call this post I know best, but thought it might be a bit too presumptuous. So, I disguised myself as a Mother. Which I am. Since getting this honorary title, I have discovered it comes with so many responsibilities. The famous line of from J.F.K. comes to mind, somewhat altered though: "ask not what…Continue

My husband surprised me with a 50th birthday party this summer. He invited all my friends throughout my many stages of life to come and share pictures of me when they knew-me-back-when. It was really fun to watch the slide show and reminisce about the good times with old friends.
There was one of me on my father’s sailboat that my…Continue

When starting my research for this week's topic, I came across this BRILLIANT advice from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons posted under "Preventing Back Pain: Tips for New Moms" and I quote:
Raise your hand if this did not magically happen for you. I have both…Continue

I feel like agents at my office are often times on similar wavelengths. This last week I had some similar conversations with a few different agents. What made the experience unusual was that the subjects were brought up to me in the course of the conversation by the other person. You know that feeling where you say, "that's so funny, I just had that same conversation with so and so." Yeah, that was me last week.
As some of the newer realtors are becoming more comfortable, me…Continue

The first day of school is just around the corner and parents and children everywhere are preparing anxiously for their big moment. This is especially the case for children who are going to school for the first time. The thought of school with “big kids,” teachers and the vast unknown of “school” is overwhelming and downright frightening for the uninitiated. It’s equally as…Continue

I'm bringing this question to my virtual audience because I'm trying not to get my lunch friends all riled up!
History: I broke my leg on Memorial Day and was just released by the Dr last week. He said to keep babying it some until it stops hurting; maybe another month of support when driving or on longer walks.
I think of myself as a very optimistic and positive person, stopping just short of "Pollyanna". I think that my healing during these past few months was helped by my…Continue
Transitioning back into a working mom came with a few obstacles. Child care was the biggest one I had to overcome. We no longer live close to family so searching for the right person to watch my only child with the schedule I have took plenty of patience and persistence. I thought I was good to go. I had a full time day care center for the week and someone else for the weekends. What I didn't think of was who to turn to during unexpected times when either of those two options were…Continue
As a parent you question how you are raising your child and you hope at the end of this journey your child grows up to be a well adjusted, contributing member of society. My child didn't arrive with an instruction booklet or a pair of glasses the see into the future. So I don't know if what I'm doing now will result in a positive thing or negative thing. My daughter is going to turn 2 in two months and she is a Toddler with a capital "T". There are days that she makes me so frustrated…Continue

I can't decide when to purchase Izzy her first bike/trike. Once in awhile we make a trip out to Toys R US to play. It gives her the opportunity to play. We make a two hours of it just to window shop and try things out. The last time we were there was the first time she wanted to sit on a trike and was…Continue

I've had an epiphany. A pretty huge one. I've had that moment where you realize you absolutely love what you do, but then realize you've fallen in love with (what might be) the wrong thing.
It is amazing…

Every job has its parts that we could live without. For me, there is a significantly large part of my job that I am not a fan of. I mean, I really, really don’t care for it. College counseling. Its not for me and is by far, my biggest pet peeve. Which is unfortunate, because it takes up a large chunk of my time I feel would be better spent doing other things.Continue
