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???

I am going to need a copy of that book!! We are almost there but I could use some good tips. Congrats on being debt free. That is amazing!! Also Heather I hope you aren't driving Darrin crazy on the meds. It did some crazy things to me and I was a serious "beast" That is putting it nicely!! Can't wait to see you next Thursday!! We are going to have a blast. Can I say I don't want you to move far away?? Or does that get me in trouble!!

Congrats on the debt-freeness!

I hope clomid does know where I stand on that issues..

Somewhere exotic...what about Herriman? Really...we need to have you guys over! Especially since we are starting to not be sick anymore..

Really....I think it has been a year since I haven't felt sick and tired (so I am sick of feeling sick and tired, too!).

Perhaps I need a copy of that book as well! Congrats on being debt free! I second what Summer said, I don't want you to move either, but would a good experience that would be! Good luck and can't wait to see you in a week! As for the exotic vacation, how about Puerto Rico!? It's pretty there!
