A Fabulous Post!

So today I had a pretty rotten day. Work has been beyond stressful since are incredibly understaffed and are steady receiving work. So, to break from the stress that is my job, I decided to hop onto blogspot...and guess what!? One of my favorite bloggers was kind enough to give me an award today! And just to be clear, Her Highness of Cute was one of my favorites before she bestowed this way too cute award on me!

Seriously, cutest award ever, or what?!  So, on the rules:

1. You have to pass it on to 5 other fabulous blogs in a post.

1.  Jennifer - She's my new blog friend and she's too cute for own good

2.  Casey - Because after knowing her for more than 12 years, she still cracks me up

3.  DAR - Because she's a fabulous blogger who has had a really rough week and could use some cheerin' up

4. Megan - Another new blog friend.

5. Maegan - Who I gave my last award to, but seriously, she's the definition of fabulous.

2. You have to list 5 of your fabulous addictions in the post. 

1. The Hills. Really, I don't even care if you make fun of me. It's my guilty pleasure, and I don't even care. The show is pointless, stupid, unrealistic (reality show by a**), not smart, not funny, but seriously, I thrive on it! Honestly, I'd kill for Lauren, Whitney or Heidi's job! And clothes!

(not sure why this came out so small, I clicked "large"...)

2.  Shoes. Ever since we've started getting caught up on our debt, I've been treating myself to a new pair of shoes almost ever week. I love it!

3.  New York. Yes, the city. And yes, I would definitely call it an addiction. I even considered moving there. Without Husband! This was right after college. I think I was having an identity crisis.

(seriously, why so small? I don't think my "large" button works...)

4.  Alaskan King Crab. Definitely my favorite food. By far. 

Don't judge me, you know just looking at this picture makes you want it...

5.  Apple products. I love love love my iMac, my iPhone and my iPod. Seriously, LOVE THEM!

3. You must copy and paste the rules and the instructions below in the post. Instructions: On your post of receiving this award, make sure you include the person who gave you the award and link it back to them. When you post your five winners, make sure you link to them as well. To ad the award to your post, simply right-click, save image, then "add image" it in your post as a picture so your winners can save it as well. To add it to your sidebar, add the picture gadget. Also, don't forget to let your winners know they won an award fro you by emailing them or leaving a comment on their blog.

Big Day...Coming Soon!

As most of you know, I work a really crummy job, but, for a lot of money. Part of the reason is that doing this job is going to allow us to pay off all of our debt and store some away for the future. Financially, this job is a great opportunity and sort of life changing.

So, the big day that's coming? Friday I will pay off my car! I'm so excited! Last week we paid off my husbands car and now mine! I'm so excited! By January, we will be completely debt free! It's the ONLY way to be! It will be nice when I actually get to keep the money I make! 

The person I thank for all of this? Dave Ramsey! About a year ago, Husband became nearly obsessed with his radio talk show and we bought his book and began living the Ramsey way of life. I can't even begin to tell you how much this  book has helped us and has changed our lives!

If you've got debt and are willing to sacrifice a little, I strongly recommend his book. Thanks to Dave, we will have paid off edited to read: a lot of debt in not a lot of time! Yeah, I know. It was A LOT of debt. But, I did go to a private college for 2 years, so between two brand new cars, 2 college educations, credit adds up. But now it's going away! Like I said, sacrifice is crucial!

The Total Money Makeover

Looking forward to Friday!!!

I got my Sunday back!

This was the first Sunday I've had completely off in 3 weeks! It was nice. So, I decided to take Sunday off from everything. I literally did nothing (that constitutes any kind of work) except go to Walgreens to pick up the sick hubby some medicine.  It was so nice! Which means, no learning-to-cook-Sunday for me. The closest I got to cooking was making a grilled cheese! It was really kind of nice to do nothing this weekend. 

We did go to a concert Sunday night, Sugarland, Kelli Pickler and Ashton Shepherd. It was pretty good, I think Kelli Pickler is just the cutest. Sugarland was pretty good, too. I like their music, but Jennifer Nettles is so freakin' weird! I wish you coulda seen how she was dancing! She sounded great though. 

I think if I could have any  job, and the talent, I'd be a singer. But seriously, you should play Rock Band with me, I get booed off stage quite a bit. 

Sad news, we are only getting Thanksgiving day off of work so I don't get to spend the weekend down there like I had hoped. My parents are coming up the weekend before Thanksgiving so that should be fun. It'll be nice to see some family. I'm not sure what we're going to do for Thanksgiving now though. 

We got some information on the kind of salary and benefits (and outrageous bonuses) Husband will get if he takes the job in Houston. I'm just not sure I'm ready to go back, I so had my heart set on the job in New York. However, it's almost too much money to pass up and we don't know if the offer will still be there in two years. So, we're still "talking". We shall see how it plays itself out...

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
