THERE'S ALWAYS ROOM FOR ICE CREAM
Seems like there is a Dairy Queen on every corner, but did you know that the first one opened up way back in 1940 in Illinois?
There are over 5700 stores around the world calling on us to enjoy cold scoops of goodness.
SELL IT FOR CASH
If you're thinking about having a yard sale to get rid of some clutter, studies show that that simply providing bags for your customers is a great way to make it easy for them to carry stuff and to purchase more.

1) Butter + Honey + Tabasco or Hot Sauce
2) Mayo + Old Bay + Lemon Juice (Get the low salt version of Old Bay if you're watching your salt intake
3) Olive Oil + Oregano + Parmesan Cheese

LOOKING FOR A HOME?
You may not have heard of 50 Poplar Hill Drive in Connecticut, but it's pretty famous. At one time it was owned by Mike Tyson. He actually forgot that he even still had this property that was robbed in 2017, but this mansion is owned by 50 Cent, the rapper. At one time, this 50,000 square foot property was being sold for a little over $18 million, but Fredrik Eklund from Bravo's Million Dollar Listing slashed the price to just close to $5 Million. (About $22,000 a month mortgage payment!)
So if you're looking for a home with 6 kitchens, 25 bathrooms, a pool and a stripper pole, get this bargain quick!(lol)
WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO REALLY WELL?
One thing I wish I could really do well is draw or paint. I literally can only draw boxes and stick people. My artistic talent is to use stickers and washi tape for everything in my planners.
|My Birthday is Coming on August 12- Yay!|
In high school, I took an elective art class and thought it would be smooth sailing - uh...definitely not. (lol) We had to draw things like hands, bottles and fruit baskets. Everyone in that class created these great pieces of art with pencils and shading, including Eva someone I'm still friends with today.
The teacher would walk past my desk, shake her head and tell me to just keep trying. (lol)
