House Hunting

I went out with my real estate agent tonight for the first time to look at houses. It's kind of exciting, though I don't think it's all really sunk in yet. The houses we looked at were a little more expensive than I initially hoped to spend, but perhaps that's what I have to expect to get in the areas and house condition that I want. I don't mind an older, smaller place, but I really would like a good location and something that doesn't need too much work.

I was actually surprised at how much I liked a couple of the places that I saw. Now I need to meet more seriously with some lenders to see what I can really afford. Maybe as I get more serious I'll even post some pictures.

New Smoothies

In my tradition of posting smoothie recipes when I haven't blogged for a while, here's a nice one. Two bananas, a mango, a half cup or so of orange juice, a handful of blueberries (frozen is ok), and 8 or 10 ice cubes. Blend until smooth. The orange juice and blueberries give it a nice zip.

Update: Krista reminds me that the blueberries were her idea. I can't claim sole credit for this one.

Yes, my blog is stale

I've been told recently that I should update my blog more frequently. To the person who said that (you know who you are): I've been very busy recently and haven't had much free time, but I'll be sure to place a higher priority on website updates, so stay tuned!

Also, a very happy birthday to my mom!

Pictures of Halifax

Had a small bit of time to kill this morning before picking up mom and dad at the airport, so I picked out a few of my favorite pictures of Halifax and uploaded them to my online photo album. Check them out.
