Self Promotion

One of the things I am not very good at is self promotion. With that said, I am working on this skill and am going to take this post to do just so. Last summer I studied and got my real estate license in the state of Oklahoma. Real estate has been a passion of mine since I was in college. Before moving to Oklahoma I even got my real estate license in Virginia while living in the DC area. I never had a real opportunity to take advantage of a license until recently and I jumped on the chance. One of my good friends owns a new home construction business and I market and sell his homes. I am very thankful for this break and that I have a great broker to learn from.

My ultimate goal would be to work in real estate full time, right now I still have my full time job at the Postal Service while working in real estate is my “hobby”, as my husband likes to call it. I used to say that I “wish” I could make real estate my career, but I have now realized that I need to change that “wish” to a “goal”. One step at a time I honestly believe I can reach this goal.

So, if you would like to help me reach my goal… a house from me! I kid. But really, if you are in the market for a new home or know somebody that is, definitely send them my way. You can see my current listings here. Enjoy!

MK Inspired Outfit

I just sat down at my desk, opened my inbox and saw this picture in an email from Michael Kors.

What is funny is that this is my outfit today. (Ignore the grainy iPhone picture and awesome (not) work bathroom background.)

Am I good or what?

Safe and Sound

Last night we had some crazy storms and tornadoes in our area, but I am happy to say we are all safe and sound here in Norman. We did have a few minutes of fright as a tornado was headed straight toward our home and we headed to our neighbor's storm shelter. Luckily the twister took a turn and missed our neighborhood.

On a much lighter note I thought I would share a few pictures from my phone.

I snapped this picture this morning while walking the dogs.

You can't tell what it is from the blurry picture, but it was a possum, looked just like this:

This morning as I was headed to work I noticed this huge web a spider had spun from my dash to the front seat. If you click on the picture to enlarge it you can see how crazy cool the web is.

And last but not least, I put some pretty bows in Owen's hair last night, doesn't he look pretty :)

On My Nightstand

I thought I would share with you the books I currently have on my nightstand. Okay, they are really not on my nightstand, they are in a basket on the floor in my bedroom along with my never-ending stack of magazines.

My dad bought me this at Anthropologie this past weekend. I have read many reviews on it and can't wait to sink my teeth into it.

Another book I have read good reviews on. If you ask me we could all use a little help living more savvy.

I snagged this from One Kings Lane along with an autographed bookplate by Gwyneth herself. As soon as this book arrived I sat down and devoured it like a novel. Cannot wait to make some of the recipes myself!

Another book I received for my birthday. I started reading this on the plane to Ohio last week and can't put it down. I love Bethenny's humor and sense of reality, she is really down to earth.

Summer Beauty Secrets

I tore this page out of the latest Harper's Bazaar and have been holding on to it until the sun decided to finally stick around. I love the travel pouches, might just have to make a special trip to Target and check out the Calypso St. Barth collection. Speaking of trips, I am headed to Ohio this week to celebrate my sister's college graduation and visit with friends and family, praying the sun is out there as well. Cheers!

A Word to the Wise

I recently came across these tips from financial guru Suze Orman and thought they were good enough to share.

What to Ask Before You Buy

Can you pay for it outright?
If not, consider the real cost of charging it; within a year, a $250 dress,
billed at an annual interest rate of 20 percent, becomes a $300 dress.

Are you already in debt? No treating yourself until you’ve paid off
student loans, home equity lines, all credit cards – and you’ve started
investing in your retirement. In the long run, the money in the bank will
bring you far more enjoyment than any item you can wear.

Have you banked eight months’ living expenses? That may sound like a
lot, but that’s low long it’s taking people to get a job these days.

I am all about finding good deals, but to be honest sometimes I don’t always have the extra cash for another pair of shoes. This puts it all in perspective, just what I need. Guess that means I need to put my Neiman’s card away and pass on these juicy Prada shoes.
