A Red Toaster for Mom

My mom had her kitchen renovated a few months ago. When her birthday rolled around just a few weeks after the kitchen was done, I already knew what I was going to get her. Her favorite color is red, and I knew that she would love to have a new red toaster to match the curtains and trim in her kitchen. Her favorite color is red, but I had never seen a red toaster before. I was looking for a toaster for myself one day because mine kept burning my toast on one side, and that is when I saw the red toasters.

I had looked on a website that does reviews for various toasters because I definitely did not want to go from something bad to something even worse. Continue reading A Red Toaster for Mom

How We Found Our Perfect Home

When my husband and I decided to buy our first house, we were pretty excited. We first lived in an apartment together, then we rented our first house after a few years. We have been together for almost ten years now, and we decided it was time to make permanent roots. I went online to look for a company that showcases Park City real estate for sale, and I was able to find one that I liked pretty fast. I liked how I could customize our search, because there were specific things that we did want.

Even though we have no kids nor do we plan on having any, we still wanted at least three bedrooms. Continue reading How We Found Our Perfect Home

Our Best Meal in Singapore

My wife and I decided to go to Singapore for our annual vacation last year. Neither of us had been there before, and the pictures were nothing short of amazing. She took care of the travel arrangements, and we worked hard so we could take ten days off and enjoy ourselves there. The first day, we spent mainly on the beach. We did a couple of tours the second day, and we felt like we were at home by the third day. We had found a great Spanish restaurant in Dempsey Hill on our third day while we were out exploring, which is how we often find the culinary treats that we have come to expect on our vacations.

We have eaten at Spanish restaurants before, but this one was by far the best ever. The entire place made us feel welcome as soon as we walked in the doors. Continue reading Our Best Meal in Singapore

It’s Time to Let Go

Everyone always asks me if I want to keep their old garbage, and I usually accept it, but my garage had become too filled with it, and I had barely any room to get around. Some people would say this is the same level of collecting as a hoarder, but I didn’t think it was that bad. Regardless, I needed more room, so I decided to sell some of my metal garbage. I found the best scrap metal prices from a particular person and traded my metal away for cash. I had been wanting to buy a new tablet, and the extra money allowed me to do that.

I was using the tablet to read some books before bed one night, and I came across one book about hoarding. The first thing that came to mind was the mass of garbage that I had collected in my garage. Although I had traded some of it away, there was still a lot of it left over. Continue reading It’s Time to Let Go
