Real Estate Talk

With all this talk of real estate, development in Prince George’s County etc., I thought I’d share a couple more thoughts. I actually wake up thinking about these things which is a little obsessive, I know. First of all, I have to share a real estate listing with you. This is a house in Deanwood,…

Future Of Prince George’s County

Okay. I think I’m getting the itch to be on Cheverly’s planning committee. I just can’t read enough about real estate and all of the great news happening in Prince George’s County. Did you know about the transformation that is coming to New Carrollton? Biz Now highlighted all of the future plans for our county…

My Recent Discovery of a Neigboring Town

I’ve lived in the Cheverly for 10 years now and have only recently discovered our neighboring town, Mt. Rainier, MD. I just don’t drive that way…until I discovered my new found favorite gluten free/vegan slices of cake at Sweet and Natural and now I’ve been there about once a week. A couple days ago I saw…

Someone Please Explain…

This home for 419K could be yours. This home for 750K could be yours. Or this home with only two photos listed and this is the first one (oops, wrong way) for 450K. Someone pick up my mouth up from the floor. Do people around here have so much money that they can just throw…

Real Estate: Wood Ceiling Planks

Isn’t this house a beauty? Located on Crest Ave, a short distance walk to the Cheverly Pool, this house is up on the market for 385K. I drove by it on Sunday when they were having an open house but too bad my little one was too exhausted to get out of the car! I was dying to go…

Sandy Point State Park

With the Bay Bridge in the background, these Cheverly kids had a blast at Sandy Point State Park, a mere 30 minute drive from their neighborhood. I’d forgotten about this great Maryland State Park that is so close! But on Saturday night it made for a relaxing evening with neighbors and friends. We cooked out,…

Food Truck Festival and more…

The Food Truck Festival. Another way to get out of the house, meet your neighbors, have some good food and a drink or two. Huge thanks to Rachel Dabney Rice who dreamed up this idea last year. These are how things happen in our nice little town. You have an idea (I’ve often spoke with…

AMAZING news for PG County

I just heard about the best news this morning. It really is something to jump up and down about and shout: We Love PG County. Let’s be honest here, when most of my friends hear that I live in PG County, they give me an expression that says, “WHAT?” Well, next time if someone does…

Big Week Ahead: Cheverly Public Safety Day 2015

What a week we have ahead of us. Tomorrow night is the highly anticipated Republican Presidential Debate, Thursday is Cheverly’s Public Safety Day, Saturday is our Community Market with a special health fair (you can even get a massage, take part in a yoga class etc), and Sunday we have our 2nd Food Truck Festival….

Looking For A Larger Home?

Looking for a larger home? Look no longer. Amazingly enough Cheverly has two larger houses that just went on the market. One is 2400 square feet and another is 2700 square feet. More encouraging than these larger homes, housing prices have been rising in Cheverly. Both these are listed for 400K+ I think people are…

Sweetbay Magnolia, Anyone?!

Do you read the town newsletter? You should. I learned a lot about what is happening this month when I finally took time to look through it. Not only do we have an Oktoberfest this weekend, we have our Food Truck Festival, a Garden Club meeting, card games at the Legion, our famous Public Safety…

More Musings and Greenleaf Fitness Invite

The Cheverly Pool. 3 words that mean so much. I know it’s open for two more days (next weekend) but with cooler temps coming soon, I’m assuming Labor Day was my last day for summer 2015. I have officially begun my season of grieving. If you still haven’t signed up to become a member, DO SO NOW….
