Frost A Gelato Shoppe, SanTan Village

Treat Yourself to Dessert from Frost a Gelato Shoppe:

The Summer heat is already upon us.  You know what that means?  Parents are looking for anything and everything to keep their kiddos cool . . . and happy!  If you haven’t already, you should definitely stop in at Frost a Gelato Shoppe located in SanTan Village, Gilbert, AZ.

Frost a Gelato Shoppe is one of my and my daughter’s favorite sweet spots.  It’s a little taste of Italy right here in our own backyard.  Oh, and did I mention that it’s healthier than ice cream??  I mean come on now . . . we can indulge and not feel (too) guilty with bathing suit season upon us!! 😉

Whenever you visit Frost, you’ll notice that there’s always a line out the door for their delicious gelato. All of the ingredients are imported directly from Italy, along with all of the machinery needed to make the authentic gelato.  Trust me, you can you taste the difference!  Gelato has now replaced the love of ice cream for both myself and my 6 year old.  When she asks for a treat, you will find us indulging at Frost!

My personal favorite is the Gianduia (chocolate with hazelnut) and my daughter’s top pick is the Crema Di Biscotti.  This is a must for the Summer checklist of places to take the kids!

5 Tips for Every Homeowner:

The Gina Kent Group, Gilbert AZ:

Here are 5 Tips for Every Homeowner:

We recently came across a great article in USAA Magazine, that gave 39 tips that every homeowner should follow. They wrote it as an owner’s manual for navigating the costs, concerns, and questions of life’s biggest purchase.  We chose 5 of the tips that we thought most often get overlooked.

1.  Take a Video of Each Room: break out the phone or iPad and take video of the contents in each room.  You can use this for future insurance claims (ex. fire, or other damage).

2.  Get to Know Your Home’s Systems: familiarize yourself with the home.  You can ask the seller or inspector to show you where things are located and how to work them (ex. air returns, water shut-off valve, HVAC, Gas Supply, etc.).

KnowHomeSystems

3.  New Locks: always have your locks rekeyed as soon as you move into a new home.

RekeyLocks

4.  Know your Neighborhood Rules: if you have an HOA, there are restrictions that will keep you from being able to make certain changes (ex. exterior paint color, vehicles that can be parked on a property, running a business from home, breeds of animals, etc.).

HOADeedRestrictions

5.  Meet the Home Service Vendors: ask your seller for a list of the vendors that serviced your property (ex. lawn service, pool service, etc.).  These vendors know how all of the systems work and any previous issues that you may want to be made aware.
