Spring has Sprung... and I'm Pleased as Pinterest Pie.  This morning, while pinning a pie recipe to one of my Pinterest boards, I received a counter offer by email from an REO bank.  I was stoked and slightly confused at the same time.  I called the listing agent to ask...

I'm so excited... one week from today, I get to spend Easter Sunday with my little bunny.  Isn't she the cutest bunny you ever did see?
