What is a Contingency?

  In my last blog I discussed what Pending means in Real Estate and I stated:   Anytime I say Pending, it means the house is under contract. Either with a contingency or not, the house is more than likely going to another buyer. It's just a matter of time until it closes and the new homeowner will be moving in. So what is a contingency?  Well a contingency in a contract is anything that must be first met to allow the sale to continue in the manner in which the contract was written. Most contracts have standard contingencies to include a home inspection, a financial contingency and an appraisal contingency. Other contingencies could include a home sale.  Home Inspection Contingency: This contingency allows the buyer to preform a home inspection (all home inspectors in the state of Virginia must have a license) and the buyer has the opportunity to ask for repairs in order for the contract to move forward. Sellers at this time can a couple of things. Repair all items Repair some it

Salad Bar Party


I threw a girly party yesterday for a couple of my girlfriends. We had a wonderful time talking over what has been happening lately in our lives. Since we are going out of town Tuesday for two weeks, I have to admit I was trying to clear out my refrigerator a bit. 

I had a huge head of romaine lettuce and I always have a ton of salad dressings. Instead of buying a lot of items that would go uneaten, Salad Bar Party it became. 

I have a ton of these small glass containers my Aunt Sallie gave me the last time she visited from Knoxville. These we actually my great grandmother's. They were perfect for dressings and the toppings. 

I served Wishbone Italian, Kraft Classic Ranch, Kraft Creamy French, Brianna's Saucy Ginger Mandarin, Cardini's Caesar, Braswell's Creamy Vadalia Onion, and Kraft Extra Virgin Olive Oil Basil Parmesan Vinaigrette. 

The toppings included Bacon Bits, Croutons, Shredded Carrots, Red Onion, Cucumber, Won tons, and Craisins. 

It was a hit. I've never done a salad bar before but I think it will be done again!
