Chubby Baker in Orem, which is right next to Provo Utah is my recent discovery of the best place to get your sugar fix! They even have a sign in their window that says they are your ‘sugar dealer’. Oh my… their donuts are delicious… and I don’t even favor donuts! The only donut I tell people I will eat is a Krispy Kreme glazed donut, and ONLY when the RED Hot light is on. But … I just changed my mind! Chubby Baker donuts are so soft and delicious. Their flavors are not your typical donut flavors. Chubby Baker makes regular donuts but their claim to fame are their filled donuts and the fact they are home-made fresh. This bakery is a fusion of Asian and American ingredients and flavors. My filled donut favorites are the following: Hot Guava — Yummy with a touch of heat. Just enough to say...

The work ethic has taken a permanent leave in these cases. For those who continue to get up, dress up and show up to make a living, THANK YOU. A day's hard work neve...

  My youngest son turned 21 years old. I have a tradition in my family to take the adult birthday kid out to lunch or dinner. He chose dinner at the India Palace in Downtown Provo, Utah. What a great choice! We love the different Indian regional foods from around India. Curry is one of our favorites! Since turmeric is so healthy, we can indulge in the many flavors! There is a variety of healthy and low-fat options on the menu at India Palace in Provo, Utah. Many people in India are vegetarian. This is a great place to eat out on ‘Meatless Mondays’. Since Indian cuisine does not include any beef or pork, or cuts from a cow. Cows are sacred in India. There are delicious lamb options. Lamb is on my superfoods list for my body’s biome. Lamb is also expensive even at Costco. I choose lamb en...

I met our neighborhood Literary Guild ladies at the iconic Brick Oven Pizza restaurant in Provo Utah the other day. Brick Oven is located right next to the Brigham Young University campus. It is a super popular place to eat, especially for young families as it is cost-effective and they have the option of the all-you-can-eat salad bar, pasta bar, and breadsticks. I ordered the salad bar and breadsticks. I didn’t order pizza this time. This is not the first time I have been to Brick Oven. When I bring my grandchildren out for Pizza, this is one of the restaurants I take them to. They get the pizza and the pasta bar.

Real or AI Generated?  Recently, Candice Donofrio brought to my attention on ActiveRain Peeps, a consumer-facing post, specific to Washington County, Utah. The ad enticed people to 'upgrade their agent'. I found multiple voids within the entirety. Upon closer inspection, the photos appeared to be AI generated, the website went nowhere, and there was no broker information, nor name, or any other information disclosed that would be required by the real estate commission. I discovered the client testimonials were also fictitious, no such homeowners existed in the county records. In this day and age of artificial intelligence, you must verify before trusting anything online. Our profession as a whole is under attack. Being a cohesive force against false advertising, unethical practices and ...

Here are five not so well-known or surprising facts about Provo, Utah: 1. Provo’s Underground Streams Beneath the city, a network of underground streams called “provo rivers” flows through ancient lava tubes. These hidden waterways contribute to the unique geography and natural beauty of the area. 2. Historic Echo Theatre The Echo Theatre in Provo was constructed in 1918 and is believed to be one of the oldest continually operating theaters in the United States. It has witnessed decades of performances and cultural events. 3. Whiskey Train Legend Provo has a whimsical legend about a “Whiskey Train” that supposedly transported spirits from Salt Lake City to thirsty residents during the era of Prohibition. While the tale is likely more fiction than fact, it adds a touch of intrigue to th...

Today is Worth Singing About! Caturday's are meant for catching up with paperwork, house chores or for spending time in the garden. Slinky and I would meet quite often in Nerdin Gardens. She would happily supervise in between cat naps and chin scratches, while her tiny paws gently padded their way into my heart. Every day is an opportunity to improve relationships by reaching out to those who matter, even if it's just a satisfying belly rub. Happy Caturday all!

Putting the NERD in NERDIN GARDENS! Every growing season, we unleash our inner 'nerd' into the back yard garden, encouraging nature to be bountiful with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. This Spring, we will till the soil, prepare it for growth, plant, then eventually reap the delicious rewards of all our hard work. A robust home garden takes much effort, passion and dedication, much like running a business. Maintaining the work ethic for both is crucial for success, along with implementing good daily habits. We put the 'nerd' into our back yard garden by: Tilling: Rotating natural fertilizer into the already back soil, loosens any compacted earth to allow for proper drainage, air circulation, providing space for plant root growth. Preparing: Water systems are re-installed every...

  Day’s Market is my favorite neighborhood grocery store. It’s just a few blocks from my home, so I can walk there in less than 10 minutes. I remember, as a child, there were small neighborhood candy stores and grocery markets. Most of them are no longer around. Big grocery chain stores replaced the small stores. While the sales may be better at the larger chain grocers, the convenience of walking to a store and picking whatever I need for dinner is valuable. Day’s has all the essentials you need from fresh produce, an amazing bakery, your poultry and meats, all your dairy and non-dairy products, snacks, toilet paper, and all other essentials. Day’s Market also has great hours. They are open until 11 p.m., which makes dinner time much easier! Note: they are closed on Sundays. Since I li...

She said, That's like holding a listing "hostage." Sellers hire agent to sell their house. Documents are filled out entirely, after reading line-by-line and then asking if there are questions. All parties agree to and they understand the terms, sign, initial and date. Agent calls a professional photographer to take pictures of interior and exterior, plus from the sky with a drone, that also includes 3-D technology to show off the floor plan. They are given advice on removing items that might distract buyers, also recommends hiring a stager to create light & bright fresh spaces. Seller (she) is resistent to advice. Listing goes live, agent coordinates all viewing appointments. Just days later, owner (wife) says company is visiting for the next 6 weeks, requesting all showings be paused. ...

Creating Solid Relationships:  Not Just Another Brick in the Wall For many years, I have looked at relationships as if they were a house; built strong, they remain through the tests of time. If based on less-than-honest intentions, it becomes unsafe and comes tumbling down. One of an agent's fiduciary responsibilities is to communicate concisely and clearly to clients, relaying as much information necessary to move forward or to change directions when making a serious sales decision.  Following up and through effectively is pertinent. When communication fails, a chaotic environment may soon ensue, clouding judgement and a prior, relaxed mindset can turn volatile without any warning.  Relationships built on weak foundations are destined to collapse. Rushing into a friendship in an excita...

Hope Your Easter is Eggstra Special! As you gather today for Easter, be sure to make some great memories with your friends and family. Take a lot of pictures, share your favorite stories, bring a special homemade dish if you're traveling to someone's home. Love is a common thread that is woven into all relationships, whether in friendship or partnership. This quote comes to mind by Kate McGahan: The very first Easter taught us that life never ends and love never dies. However you decide to spend this day, enjoy those around you, remember what is important in your life and be thankful. Happy Easter to you all!

ActiveRain MeetUp - Caroling in Southern Utah! When I realized that Carol Williams would be passing through St. George, lunch plans and a tee-time were immediately made. Due to the influx of new residents to my selling area, open slots to golf can be 15 -  30 days out. Our golf destination was Southgate Golf Course for a quick 9-holes. The chicken taco's there at the restaurant were the bomb. After being notified we were up, we drove from hole #10 and that's when the hilarious fun began! Caroling at Southgate Golf Course Carol played a total of 43 times over the winter months, It was my first time out this year. She hit the ball straight and true, while I hacked my way into sand traps, the rough, ricocheting the ball off rocks, up and down the rolling hills. We decided to play best ball...
