5 years ago today...

081Today Eric and I have been married for 5 years. Sometimes it feels like so much longer (in a good way though), and at the same time I can't believe that it has been that long! I am lucky though. I married my best friend, and he is an amazing father. We get along with each other's families, and these have truely been the best five years of my life.

096So tonight we will  have dinner at The Raphael, where we had dinner on our wedding night and where we have celebrated every anniversary since.

We will take a walk around the plaza and enjoy a kid free evening (Thank you Judy!!!)

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Pink_dysonAs most everyone knows, my most favorite color is pink. This is one of the reasons that I love October so much! October is breast cancer awareness month, so lots of retailers sell pink stuff with some of the proceeds going to various cancer related charities.

So of course when I saw this I was in love! I would totally vacuum more if I had a pink vacuum cleaner! Too bad it is $400... and I do not think that Dave (Ramsey) would consider a vacuum cleaner an emergency (especially since there is nothing wrong with the one we have now... except that I really don't like it!). Do you think that Eric would mind a pink vacuum cleaner?

Isn't it adorable?!?!

Another quiet weekend

I was travelling for work last week and got in on Saturday, so we had a quiet weekend. Did some grocery shopping, some cleaning, completed Baby Step #1 (Dave Ramsey Plan). I finished another Master's course with an A. Next is Marketing which starts on 1 Oct. Only another year and a half to go until I will have my masters! We should finish Baby Step #2 (Dave Ramsey Plan) around the same time as I complete my MBA. Talk about a party!

Megan changed herself after an accident, and decided that the capelet should be worn as a skirt instead. 07091604

September already???

I don't know about everyone else, but I can not believe that it is September already! I love fall. I love the colors, the weather, the decorations that I put up... but I still can't believe that fall is right around the corner!

We had a nice visit with Jen last week. I am so glad that she was able to come to Kansas for a visit before having the baby. Probably the last time she gets to come out for a long while. We threw a mini baby shower for her, I just need to get the pictures off of my camera!

If you haven't read it yet, you need to read Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. This book has completely changed the way that Eric and I view our finances, and because of this book (and Dave's radio show that you can listen to online) we are on our way to becoming debt free. I have added the XML feed from Dave's site to my blog (bottom item in the column to the right). I am trying to figure out how to add one of his graphics as well to link to the site. You can order the book on his website, or just read what he has up there for free. Our local library had his book as well.
