Weekend highlights

After the previous weekend being a complete FAIL, thank goodness this past weekend was the exact opposite!

I worked on Sat. I had an appointment to show 2 homes to a couple at 11am who are planning to move here in a year or so when they retire, but may want to buy before then to have a beach house for weekends and summer vacations. Then I had an appointment to show 6 homes to a couple who are renting. They really liked the home I showed them in the neighborhood where they are currently renting and decided to write an offer!
I told my buyers the house already had an offer on it but it was still going back and forth with both parties trying to agree on a final sale price. I suggested that if they really wanted the house, they should offer the full list price or something very close to it in order to get the seller to stop negotiating on the 1st offer. They heeded my advice and offered full list price and the seller accepted/ratified the offer! My 1st sale!!! I tried to contain my excitement since I didn't want my couple to know I'd only been selling real estate for about a month. Needless to say Spouse was VERY happy.

That evening we met Steven & Thad, 1 of the Bobs, and Joe P at the
Pickled Pig Pub for dinner. I had a delicious pulled pork sandwich. Afterward I dropped off Spouse at home and went to the Blue Moon to watch the 1st night of Legends show. My fellow cast mates did a fantastic job! The celebrities being impersonated were Aretha Franklin, Little Richard, and Boy George. The place was absolutely packed (with a line down the block to get it), but somehow I managed to run into several friends, 1 of which was Jeff a guy from my real estate school. I also saw Greg & Gerry and Marty & John whom I know from when we lived in VA. After the Legends show I hung out for a while and talked, then headed home.

Sun I worked in the office all day, then darted home to help Spouse get ready for our Memorial Day weekend cookout. We'd cleaned and gotten organized ahead of time so it didn't take much to get everything set up. 9 friends were able to make it and we had a great time eating and visiting on the screened porch. It was warm but not hot or humid so it was comfortable being outside.

Today (Memorial Day) I was off so Spouse & I went to beach where we met Steven & Thad, 1 of the Bobs, Joe P, Robin and her friend Bill. It was really hot for Memorial Day (low 90s) but it felt great to sit on the beach for the 1st time this season and enjoy the day off. Later that evening we met up with them again for dinner at the
Long Neck Diner.

It was a TERRIFIC weekend!!
