Girl's night out.

I had my first exciting and fun girl’s night out dinner last night. I went to a Korean buffet with the beautiful ladies I meet here in Korea. The fun part started early when we got lost driving around town to find our meeting place. We asked the locals but unfortunately they didn’t speak English. "duh" . So, we had the idea to stopped at the local police station to asked for directions.

Thanks ...God he spoke English and he was very helpful and even took us to the place. It was late and we are starving,, I guess the driving around is worth it because the restaurant food was very good. I found out that if you get too much food and you can’t eat it all you will pay extra. So, we had to sit there and eat until all the food was gone. Hahahahaha! It’s a punishment!

Homebuyer

Thanks to Jonathon Woods

Buying my home was a huge decision but I didn’t do it without help. I had a really great realtor who guided me through the whole process and even my attorney was nice about the fact that I didn’t know what I was doing. The contractor I hired to do some of the small renovations was great and even gave me a small discount (I think so I would want to use him the next time around) and all in all I think it was just a more smooth process than I thought it would be. I went to a cabletv advisor to look into satellite and the guys at the home improvement store have even been super helpful when it comes to things like paint colors and lighting for the interior. I don’t really know how anyone becomes a homeowner without tapping into a great support system – I would have been so lost without all the helpful people around me! Even my mom is great when it comes to giving me home advice!
