Oh a House Hunting we will go...

Congrats! Our house sold in 3 hours!

Seriously. Woah.

Now we have this frantic mission to find OUR dream home and it's really tough. I mean, with houses selling in 3 hours, you can imagine how hard it is to find something right?

It's also hard when you limit yourself to one neighborhood that's only this big:

Every house in that little square is already under contract except for 2. They both need fixing up and Lee and I had decided we weren't into that this time. With a toddler and full time jobs, construction isn't the best idea.

However... knowing me and what I do all day for a living... I am slightly intrigued.

I get heavy discounts so renovating wouldn't be quite so expensive if you choose the right materials and find good labor.

Today we are going to look at 4 houses. 2 in this little square and 2 in another area we like - just not as much.

I did wish this would all move quickly.

I should have been more specific on the rate of speed....

I am a total tech geek. I always want the newest, fastest, coolest gadget and I want it the minute it comes out.

When something comes out that makes my life a little easier, I jump all over it.

Recently, that product is the release of the Google Chrome app for iPhone and iPad.

See, if you use Google Chrome on your PC/MAC, you can sync your contacts through Chrome and see them on your iPad/iPhone.

Firefox has a similar feature but the work around for it on your i-devices is lacking. The chrome app is seamless.

Pictures make this easier to understand:
When you download it, you can click on the 3-line icon to sync. Note: Sign in on chrome on the computer first. 
 As you see, there are a few folders and even the little widgets that are installed on Chrome at my PC.
I don't believe the widgets work, but it sure synced EVERYTHING!

My favorite thing about the sync is that I can sit and read blogs on my iPad in the mornings (as being swamped at work has caused a lack of reading lately) and all my bookmarked blogs are right there, and it opens a tab when you click on the icon.

(Note, there are more blogs than that but I have to scroll up. Don't get your feelings hurt if you didn't spot your blog.)

Are there any new technology goodies that are making your busy life easier?
