Last weekend I had a date with my two oldest GrandGurlz.  Kayleigh is 12 and Saedie is 11.  They are like most pre-teens, addicted to their phones, texting and playing on the ipad.  When I picked the girls up I explained that I had made arrangements to completely unplug from my phone and Internet and hoped they could do the same.  They agreed that we would spend the entire day without any form of electronics.  UNPLUGGED!!!  Yes a WIN for Nanna.We opted to visit the local DQ for a burger and shake and then we headed out to Cameron Park Zoo.  The Cameron Park Zoo is just perfect for a day out.  It is not too small and not so large that you can't see it all in one day.  We had an amazing time and laughed alot.  We let Saedie be the guide and she used the zoo map to make sure we did not mis...

Top  Five Things To Do in Waco, Texas.   I grew up in Meridian, Texas which is approximately 45 miles from Waco, Texas and I have not been to all of these tourist attractions.   While growing up in small town Meridian, it was a big treat to get to go to "the big city" and it did not happen often. That being said, now that I live in the Waco, Texas area, I am on a mission to visit each of these. 1.  Cameron Park Zoo- Our zoo rests on 52 acres along the Brazos River.  This zoo is the perfect size for young and old.  It is not so large that you cannot see it all in a day, yet it is large enough to have a wide array of animals.  I have taken my grandchildren to this zoo and it always provides a wonderful day trip.2.  McLane Stadium- Home of the Baylor Bears!  This new football stadium rests...

Is a homeowner association right for you?  This will be one of the questions you will need to consider as you begin your home search.  For some homeowners it is the only choice, as they want to live in a subdivision with rules in place, while other homeowners want to have freedom to use their home and land without restrictions.Homeowner Associations help protect property values and create a pleasant living environment for all involved.  The role of the homeowner association is to impose certain rules and deed restrictions for all of the subdivision to follow.Here are four questions you may want to ask before buying property in a homeowner's association: 1.  Can you afford it?  HOA'S are funded by dues paid monthly, quarterly or annually.  Be sure to ask the seller if the HOA is mandator...
