I joke that it wasn't until Season 3 when I could finally feel comfortable filling my car up (all the way) with gas at one stop, but it's very true. I don't drive fancy cars, wear designer clothes, I just spend my money on houses….and dogs and children ?#keepthehustle

There is no such thing as bad weather in our house…bundled up and enjoying 48 degrees in #Detroit. And so excited to use our new umbrella (that someone took an early nap) The LO stands for my hometown #lakeorion and also where I own a half dozen historic properties that we saved from wrecking balls.
