neighborhood watch

How many of you love to drive around neighborhoods and just drool over pretty homes?

Raise your hand if you have ever squealed with delight when you got to participate in a showcase of homes tour.

Do you find yourself perusing the real estate listings for therapeutic reasons?

Well if you need some pretty home therapy, oh boy do I have the remedy for you.

Drive-by shootings...

Ok... not THAT kind of shooting... 

Drive by and take a shot...


that doesn't sound good either.

What I meant to say is.

Make sure you get your daily dose of pretty houses.

It works wonders for stress relief.

I was fortunate enough to be in good company today while driving through a lovely neighborhood near Alamo Heights in good ole' San Antonio.  

I'm feeling very relaxed.  :)

I raised both hands!
I love looking at homes. I have had the urge to "Shoot" some, but I didn't know if one of those home owners would come after me. Ha ha
I am hosting a "Friday Pretties" party. Check it out if you want to play.

I raised both hands, too ... and both feet, just for good measure! One of my VERY favorite things to do is to take pictures of houses. The best thing is to go to a quaint little town, park the car, walk the streets and take pictures! I recently did that in the town of Oxford, and I loved it soooooo much. Sometimes I wonder if people get tired of seeing my pictures of houses. But I never get tired of it, so I guess that's what counts. Love, love, love your pictures as well, Bonnie. And love your enthusiasm. It's contagious!

When I lived in the hamptons I did this all the time. Now I just stare into peoples apts in NYC and drool over the fact that they exposed brick. HAHA!

You make me laugh, drive by shootings. Beautiful homes, thanks for taking me with you on this daring adventure. You're a great shot lady!

I do the same, I love driving through neighborhoods and looking at all of the houses (and sneaking in a few photos, too).

Hee, hee..! I actually just did this for a client who was looking for porch addition ideas... I love walking around my neighborhood mostly because I love looking at houses. It's a relatively harmless addition to have, no?

Every time you do this, though, I am more convinced that I NEED to visit Austin at some point.
