A few weeks ago, we explored why it is difficult to buy a Minnesota lake home in the winter. If you missed the post, The Good, the Bad & the Ugly of Buying a Minnesota Lakehome in the Winter, I explained how difficult it can be to assess lakeshore in the dead of winter when the lakes are frozen ...
So as we head into 2011, have you set any financial resolutions or goals? Maybe despite all the gloom, doom and foreclosures of the past several years you are still hoping to be a homeowner one day soon. If homeownership remains your dream, you are in very good company. According to a CNNMoney.c...
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Very Happy and Prosperous 2011 to all my friends, clients and readers! For all of you that saw my last holiday post with a very miffed looking lolCat in an elf hat, rest assured this holiday season will be "hat-free" for Muffin! We don't make him wear the hats for long...ju...
I don't think Santa will want any help from our lolCat Muffin this year. He's not too happy about the elf ears...wants his own back ASAP! At least we know he will get a present or two from Santa in his Christmas stocking after putting up with all the hats we have made him wear this year!

It was back in the day when everyone sent one perfect family photograph as a holiday greeting at Christmas and I, the ever perfectionist mom, had a brilliant idea. I was going take the single most awesome photograph of my toddler sons at the Como Park Conservatory for our card. Since I was a chil...
Okay...If you don't take the time to prevent ice dams, Ruben offers some great tips on how to get rid of the ones that you have. I was wondering how the tablets worked...guess not so great based on Ruben's experience and that blow torch looks like the cure could be just as bad as the ice dams for...
With the 16 plus inches of snow we were blessed with in Anoka County this past weekend (and even more in Washington County to the south and east) it looks like we are in for a good old fashion Minnesota winter. Heading to grandmother’s house this holiday, will take us all over lots and lots of w...
