365 Things to do in Worcester County - Celebrate a Birthday at Jasmine in Auburn.  Today is my oldest daughter's birthday.  Happy Birthday, Leanne!  Leanne turns 19 years old today and one of her favorite foods to have is Japanese.  Like mother, like daughter, you might want to say.  Well Leanne was home for the Spring Brake last week and we went to Jasmine Restaurant in Auburn.    Several people told me that it was a good place to take Leanne so we ventured out.  We sat at a Hibachi table and watched the chef wield knives, juggle eggs and pour sake into my husband's open mouth.  Overall, the food was fresh, although not served in the order we were accustomed (rice and vegetables were served last).  There was no green tea ice cream, which is our family favorite.  But the show was very g...

365 things to do in Worcester County - propose at a Valentine's dance in Auburn.  We've discussed quite a few romantic options for your loved one.  But I think, the best is yet to come.  I was lucky to have been in the presence of a very romantic moment.  It happened last Friday at a valentine's dance held in Auburn at 203 Pakachaug St.  Many of us including Jennifer, expected a lovely diner and dancing with a few exhibition dances.  There was an exhibition Waltz and an exhibition Salsa dance and closer to the end of the evening, Jennifer with her Boyfriend and instructor Ben took the floor for a sexy Rumba.  The dance went very well and the music was a song "will you marry me?", which I found an interesting choice.  Because of the music, I kept the camera going after the song and the d...

SOLD in Auburn, MA - Beautiful New Home Congratulations to my buyers, who picked the right time to purchase this gorgeous home in Auburn, MA.  This newly constructed Colonial style home was built on one of the few remaining lots in a lovely subdivision with excellent commuter access.  It is a great time to buy new construction.  With mortgage interest rates remaining at historic lows, buyers are finding they can add upgrades to their new home which may have been out of reach just a few years ago.  My buyers were able to build their dream home, with a top-rate builder, and are now settling in and putting personal touches on their house.  Congratulations!

365 things to do in Worcester County - get a great deal for fabric in Auburn.  Today I am sharing a great find with you.  There is a new store that opened up a few months ago in Auburn.  I passed it on the way from a home I'm selling.  I saw a big 1.99 a yard sign and I could not believe it.  The only store I saw like that, was in Connecticut, almost an hour and a half away.  Now, for me it's like finding a Dollar store for fabric.  This is such a good deal.  Where many fabrics cost 4.99, 5,99 and up the store is a god send.  I happen to stop by on my next visit and sure enough, it was exactly what I thought it was: a bargain outlet for fabrics.  I have now visited the store a few times.  Not only is there fabric but also sewing notions, trims, batting and much more. There are some cave...

LUNDGREN HONDA - The Place To Buy Your New Car - Ask For Glenn Campbell! The first time I visited Lundgren Honda in Auburn, MA was back almost 3 years ago when I leased a new 2007 Honda Ridgeline.  Glenn Campbell helped me figure out what would be right for me and I had 3 choices in mind at the time:  a Honda Ridgeline, a new 4 door Jeep Wrangler or a Toyota FJ Cruiser.  When visiting 3 different dealerships, Glenn made the decision easy for me. Working with Glenn & Lundgren Honda was the way to go!  A couple of months ago I decided to end my lease a little early and see what deals were available at the dealership.  Luckily I remembered Glenn's name from the follow-up letters and cards he has sent to me over the years and he was in the day I randomly stopped by.  Glenn was able to help ...
