Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

This animated movie – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – is a family favorite.  As a child, I would watch this once a year at Christmas time.  My children were fortunate to watch it through out the Holidays thanks to video!

Live Like You Were Dying – Tim McGraw

This is the time of the year when many people become a bit more generous.  They forgive a little easier and enjoy spending time with their families.  The Holidays tend to bring out the best in everyone and even music sounds more meaningful.

Here is a new song that I downloaded to my I-Pod from I-Tunes“Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw

My Life as a Realtor – Day 120

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 120:

It’s Friday – and I have to go buy my Turkeys – notice Turkey is plural – I will be roasting 2 medium-sized Turkeys – carving one and leaving the other as my table decor  – at least until it’s needed.

Stop n Shop in Danbury has Butterball Turkeys – frozen for .89 cents per pound – and fresh for $1.39 per pound – that is where I will be purchasing them.

In the middle of work, I was talking to my youngest daughter, Sara.  How I got into “It’s Raining Men” by the Weather Girls started – I have no idea.  Sara didn’t recognize the song, especially since I was trying to sing it and being that she is only 16 and this song and video was from 1984 – 25 years ago – so to You Tube we went and boy did we have fun watching this music video!

Then it was back to workdinner and time to get ready for Bunco with the Bunco Babes!  Right after eating and getting ready to leave for our monthly game, our power went out – my entire block had a black out!  Only 3 kids were home and Hubby-Hub was working through the night.  So, we lit some candles, listened to some music and told some ghost stories!  Then I left for Bunco – my sister picked me up and we enjoyed our evening.

Monday, Monday…

I couldn’t resist – The Mamas & The Papas – 1966 – Monday Monday

Just another ordinary Monday – work, work, work…  clean, clean, clean… cook, cook, cook – Ah – Life is Good!

Took a picture of our driveway – couldn’t believe that Joe had blown all the leaves – and we woke to the driveway being covered in fallen leaves again!

A Favorite Tune on my I-Pod – The Climb

My I-Pod is filled with so many different tunes.  I have so many favorite songs – from very different artists – styles – and decades.

Here is one by Miley Cyrus – she’s young, but the words in her song sound like years of struggling through life.

“I can almost see it ~ that dream I’m dreaming but ~ there’s  a voice inside my head saying ~ you’ll never reach it ~ Every step I’m taking ~ Every move I make ~ feels, lost with no direction ~ My faith is shaking ~ but I ~ I gotta keep trying ~ gotta keep  my head held high ~ There’s always gonna be another mountain ~ I’m always gonna want to make it move ~ Always gonna be an uphill battle ~ Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose ~ Ain’t about how fast I get there ~ Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side ~ It’s the climb!”

These words motivate me in life ~ as a wife ~ mother ~ and Realtor –

I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what?s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes they knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on, cause

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I’m going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes you going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

Keep on moving
Keep climbing
Keep the faith baby
It’s all about
It’s all about
The climb
Keep the faith
Keep your faith

Favorite Music & Songs – David Cassidy – “I Think I Love You”

The other day my daughter Sara was talking about different things and blurted “I think I love you”.  Of course I couldn’t help myself, and started to sing David Cassidy’s “I Think I Love You” hit from the 70’s.  I told Sara that when my sister was about her age, she had a poster of David Cassidy, and every night she would kiss him good night.  This peeked Sara’s interest, so we Googled him and I had fun going back in time and Sara totally agreed that he was hot!

Country Music Awards

 country-music-awards

Tonight the 42nd Country Music Awards aired on ABC with Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley as co-hosts. The two also performed and both won awards.   I have a client that I have been working with for almost 2 years now.  She LOVES country music – so Samantha, this post if dedicated to you!

The show started off with an awesome performance by Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.  Other performers were The Eagles, Sugarland, Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift and my favorite of the night, “All Summer Long” by Kid Rock.

Kenny Chesney wins “Entertainer of the Year” – country’s music top prize.  Here is the list of all the winners tonight from CMT.com and photos of the CMA Awards Red Carpet Pictures from AOL.

Wine Library TV with Gary Vaynerchuk

This is a stressful economic time for many people right now – and everyone needs to take time to themselves. 

Whether it’s listening to some of your favorite songs – I have so many, but Hotel California by The Eagles, brings back lots of memories.  My parents had a country house in Margaretville, NY.  Every chance possible, we would pack up the 5 kids, clothes, food, Pebbles – our dog and stuff everyone into our mini van for the 2-1/2 hour ride.   With no I-Pods around yet and hardly any radio reception – cd’s were it and Hotel California was our favorite!

Whether it’s watching a movie that cracks you up – or possibly makes you realize how lucky we are even in these tough times – or… a great romance – The Notebook ranks really high on my list! 

Reading a book – a really, really good book.  One that you take into the bathroom even if it’s just to read a paragraph.  Maybe you’ll enjoy The Lighthouse Keeper by James Michael Pratt

the-lighthouse-keeper

Getting together with friends – maybe your house one week, a friends house the next time.  Taking the stress and financial burden off of one person since everyone contributes.  One guest can bring cheese and crackers – bought on sale at the supermarket, another can purchase a bottle or two… or three of wine – keeping in mind that you do not have to spend alot of money.   

A FANTASTIC site that I just stumbled upon is  WineLibraryTV.com with Gary Vaynerchuk where he speaks passionately while educating you on wine – like take the time to take a “sniffy, sniff” before drinking your wine – and teaching you to look for wine with “thunder”costs less, tastes BIG.  Gary has been a guest on many popular shows – Ellen De Generes, Mad Money, Night Line and my favorite – Conan O’Brien – too funny!  When visiting Gary’s site, under National TV Appearances, click on “Conan O’Brien” and watch him get a “Buzz”! Or view the video below to get to know him a bit.

My husbands birthday is coming up.  I never know what to get him, but this year, Gary has inspired me to try new wines.  I will purchase a few different bottles – a Portuguese wine will be at the top of my list since my husband was born and raised there and he LOVES his country’s wine. Then I’ll just have fun picking a few different varieties.  Once a week or so, my husband can pick which bottle he’d like to have with dinner – and that means I get to have some too!  Awesome – I can’t wait!
