Psst. Past It Along, National Home Prices Increase

Did you see the heading on CNNMoney.com?  Here's one we've been waiting for, "Home prices up for 1st time in 3 years".  Really, I didn't make it up.  Its there on their website. They even got an interview with Robert Shiller, the Yale economist who was the most vocal about predicting the housing bubble.  Here's what he has to say now.  If you've got 4 minutes to spare, watch what he thinks is next up for the national housing market.

Hot Spots To See In Beaumont. Take A Quick Video Tour of Town.

Today, I had the opportunity to attend a unique training event put on by the Beaumont Visitor and Convention Bureau.  They call it "Destination Training" and its for anyone who works in a field that promotes Beaumont.  Some of our hot spots on the tour were The McFadden Ward House, The Texas Fire Museum, The Neches River Front Park and boat tour, The Energy Museum and the Southeast Texas Art Museum.  It was a full day of seeing everything Beaumont has to offer.  And believe me, there is a lot to see and do here.  My sister-in-law is coming in town in a few weeks and there are at least two places I'm taking her see.  

Here's a short video (about 4 minutes) of my "destination training" tour of Beaumont.

If you are coming to town to visit or planning to relocate, you will want to stop at the Ben Rogers Visitor Center near Ford Park.  They have every brochure you can imagine and coupons too.  Who doesn't like coupons?  If you are relocating to Beaumont and need to look at homes then you'll want to touch base with me.  The Beaumont Visitor and Convention Center specializes in helping people who are here to visit.  I specialize in helping people who are hear to stay.  Enjoy the tour!

Welcome to the Family

Every now and then my husband and I take a break from our careers to enjoy our horses.  This last week we had our first foal born on our ranch in Pine Forest, Texas.  Its in North Vidor if you know Southeast Texas.  Here's a video (about 12 minutes long) of Ambrielle's first attempts to stand and then within 24 hours her learning to gallop in the pasture along side her mother.  Wow.  What an experience.  For you horse people out there, Ambrielle is a Swedish Warmblood by Amorex.  Her mom is our mare Centrifical or "Callie" around the barn.
