My dirty little secret is out…

A shocking expose by ABC News has revealed, Karen Hoxmeier, founder of MyBargainBuddy.com, often spends summers working while laying out by the pool!

This investigative report finally debunks the myth that people who work from home never get out of their pajamas. As it turns out, they go straight from pjs to bikinis!

    Isn’t “laying out” a midwest term? I’m from MI, and no one here in CA knows what that means.

    • http://www.mybargainbuddy.com Karen Hoxmeier

      Hmmm I’ve always used that term. Maybe I’m a midwesterner at heart. ;)

    Karen has put in a full day by the time the rest of the family rolls out looking for a first cup of coffee! Any lounging by the pool is well deserved.
