Updates on our Project

Things are still going well as we work towards purchasing the property that we will create The Boulevard Bed and Breakfast on! We are about halfway done with our business plan (which I hope to post parts of here at some point, so keep your eyes peeled), and have increased our knowledge and research substantially with a visit to the Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast in Nebraska City. There we met with a lovely lady named Jeanna, who is the president of the Nebraska Association of Bed and Breakfasts (NABB). She was more than willing to take time to meet with us and discuss how our plans were coming along and answer questions about what it is like to be an innkeeper.

We left more excited than ever to be working towards entering such a wonderful hospitality industry! Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to answer our questions, including Jeanna!

As you may have noticed, we've added pictures of the home we'd like to convert into The Boulevard Bed and Breakfast! Now you can get some ideas going before we post our eBay contests. :) Unfortunately, eBay doesn't let us post items for longer than 10 days, so we won't be able to officially start the contests until Friday, December 5th. They will run until Saturday, December 14th. Exciting stuff! Soon I will add in some fun little mini surveys that you can participate in on each of the package pages so that you can all participate even if you aren't bidding!

In the meantime, however, we've decided to sell as much as we can on eBay to try to get some extra money together to help us get prepared to make such a large investment. So, on each page at the bottom you'll find a nice little box like this:

All you need to do is click to see what we have available for sale, and feel free to buy! If you'd rather, we have also recently added donation buttons on our FAQ page. :) In the meantime, please pass on this blog to all your family and friends and anyone who you know who might be interested! We'd like to generate as much support as we can, whether monetarily or in the form of prayers and hugs!

Thanks for stopping by!
