Welcome to my world

Hey everyone and welcome to my lair.

You want to know what I believe? I believe anything is possible, that you can achieve a goal no matter how high.

That the world impossible is not a word, that red velvet cupcakes and cookies are a necessity. And that rambling, dreaming, and achieving are three things that get people success in this world.

I am currently on my first, yet to be edited draft of a novel I crafted that I am very passionate about: Obsessed.

You might hear more about it later. And it is over a 100,000 words, at least the word-count machine in microsoft word tells me so.

I love many tv-shows, including Smallville, Chuck, Nikita, and White Collar. I enjoy making characters, shipping TV couples, like Damon and Elena, Tess and Oliver, Michael and Nikita, Chuck and Sarah, etc, and writing fanfiction about my favorite couples on TV.

Yard Saling Tips!

Pills, pills for everyone! Just kidding, now as you all know or will know, I am an avid garage sale addict!

Me and my neighbors: Lori, Lynell, Melanie and sometimes their husband's, kids, and daughters go garage saling with us all over Utah every Saturday beginning in May to late October.

And I'm going to share our very best secrets with you, so that when you see a yard sale, you know whether to pull over or go!

Tip number 1: Bring a car with great gas mileage and plenty of seats! If your as addicted and in love as I am with sales, then you are definitely going to be hitting all the spots around the town, so make sure you got a car that doesn't have to hit every gas station in Utah to run!

Tip number 2: Always have cash on you!  You never know how much money or "dosh" you'll need, so make sure you bring your sis/bro/friend's, mutual companion's, etc. and their change jar because you might end up spending more than you originally planned!

Tip number 3: How to know whether to park and browse or speed away. You can tell if a yard sale is worth stopping for by pausing in your car and glancing discreetly at the junk spread out on the lawn. If you see baby clothes, diapers, binkies, it's probably not for you. If you see cool items you believe are worthwhile, or a DVD collection, it might be worth stopping for. But always glance before you get out, so you don't waste the gas!

Tip number 4:Keeping your passengers happy. Th ere is a century old art of "If mom's happy, everyone's happy," well the same goes for your passengers. By the middle of this trip they will have been out all around for hours, with no breakfast or caffeine in your system, so make sure you feed them a donut and provide their choice of soda, so you can stay out longer!

Tip number 5:And finally, look up on your neighborhood site for garage sales in your community or city and print 'em out. It saves a heck of a lot of time and blood and tears trying to look for things, if you have a list ready and waiting to go, so when you hop into your vehicle and drive with your friends, your not only looking awesome for saving them from driving aimlessly, but you also Are PREPARED!

Garage sale safe in May and have fun!
