Tri-Cities Still Shopping

By in Tri-Cities, WA with 2 Comments

and it’s a good thing, too.  I’m super busy in December because both of my children have December birthdays.  Plus, we celebrate Christmas (although they say Jesus was actually born in the spring – I like to think He was an April 1st baby, like me), and so between the 15th and the 31st we’re shopping and wrapping and eating cake and this year, at least, we’re navigating snow, too.

As I reported last month, the Tri-Cities seems to be somewhat immune to the national decrease in holiday expenditures.  Today, KEPR provided another story about the shopping habits of Tri-Citians.

I don’t really have anything left to buy, but I’ll probably venture out this weekend (Saturday’s forecast is snow-free) and pick up a few more baubles.  After all, I’m just helping the economy, right? Right!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.

    I wanted to check out your blog. How do you get started having a blog site?

    Your buddy,

    Hi, Anne!
    No idea how to set it up. Matt did it all and then said, “Write here…” 🙂
    BUT, go to . I think it tells you how to set up a blog, and I’m pretty sure it’s free, too.
    Happy Sunday!
