And the winner is...

I'm posting on here because I can't stand to see my big face right when you pull up our blog.

So here's a couple things that Heather and I have been up to lately:

1) American Idol Party- Heather and I decided to host our 2nd annual American Idol finale party (really, it was all Heather's idea). We had everyone over from my side of the family in our little apartment all huddle around our big screen to watch the two-hour finale. Heather made three homemade pizzas, and everyone else brought some goodies to make the party all the better. We had a blast and were happy Kris Allen won.

2) Heather and I have been enjoying financial freedom. WE'RE DEBT FREE! We paid off the last of Heather's student loan earlier in May, and have loved being debt free. However, we're still not done with the Dave Ramsey plan. We're now just getting started (much to Heather's excitement and enthusiasm :-D). Now, all during summer we will be saving up our emergency fund of about six months of expenses for a rainy day. I have to say, I have been sick of hearing "Dave Ramsey" and everything that has to do with him. I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.

3) Heather started Clomid. For those of you who don't know what this is, it's a fertility drug. She's approaching 30 and we're both really eager to start a family, so we're hoping this drug will do miracles. Truly, we both are grateful for what we have learned this last year... it's been a hard one. However, we wouldn't change it for anything (except a kid :-D), and if anything Heather and I have grown much closer together--if this is even possible. Here's to a pregnant Heather!

4) I'm looking for a new (upward) position in my company. More than likely this will mean we will be moving in the near future. We both feel that we're young and in a position to do something like this to try it out for maybe a couple years. We'll see what life throws at us.

5) We're both itchin' to go somewhere exotic. Any ideas???

He is getting soo Old!

My sweet husband turned 26 years old this past saturday. He is getting old! I know, not as old as me, but close. :) For his birthday I had a couple surprises for him. One of the surprises was a professional massage. He was soo excited. He has never had a massage that good before. Later that night we met his parents and went to Tucano's. We ate good and had good company. We then went home and watched a sports documentary and opened presents. He had a great birthday and I can't wait to celebrate lots more with him.

Us at Tucano's

for Mother's Day, my husband thought I should be celebrated on that day too, so he bought me this book. I LOVE TO BAKE!!!

This is his Peanut Butter Cake that I made from that baking cookbook. He loved it!
All of his birthday presents from me.
