Go With Your Gut.

Annie's Blog


When is it ok to go with your gut?

This is how I make 95 percent of my decisions! If someone doesn't feel right and mesh well with my personality I find it hard to have enough trust to hire them! Does that sound crazy?

Anyway, this week I am finding this may not be the best way to go! We are in the process of being preapproved for the house hunt and I am having a hard time picking a lender based on numbers! I stink at numbers!!! They never make any sense to me! Why can't I just pick a lender with the best personality on the phone? Needless to say, Rob has his hands full with this one!

I wanna hear your opinion on Facebook!

Have you ever been in a wedding and absolutely wanted to smack the Bride? As I'm planning the wedding, I am trying my hardest NOT to be one of these crazy brides! However, I'm sure I'll have my moments to apologize for as the wedding gets closer!

Anyway, I may have found the world's worst Bridezilla! (Check Out The Article Here) Some of the exerpts from the crazy email:

"I would like everyone to send me any dates they are going away or planning to go away after February so if your going away in January I don't care. I want any dates from February to the day of our wedding in August, that way we know not to plan something when your away. But after this week the dates are set in stone. "

"The wedding as I stated will be in Vail the engagement party will either be in NY or CT and the bachelorette party will be in Vegas, cliche yeaa but I've never beenif you wont be able to afford a flight then that means you cant make a party which ultimately means I cant have you as a bridesmaid."

What would you do if you were sent this email? I know what I would do, politely DECLINE the invite!!! Have any horror stories? Share them on Facebook!

Grow Up Count Chocula!

Annie's Blog


Yesterday, as I was jumping on the bed Rob yelled at me to grown up! It got me thinking, I hope I never ever grow up! Before you get all crazy, I get it, there is a time to be serious and get work done! However, I do hope I never loose the ability to act like a kid. Just think how great it would be if we all still had our childhood innocence and imagination... the world would be a much more tolerable place! It's only as adults we begin to let fear alter our decisions.

As I get older and have to make more adult decisions (wedding/house/etc) I find the bed jumping to be a form of therapy! What do you think? Let us know on Facebook!

BTW: My response to growing up, I went home and had a bowl of Count Chocula!
