To infinity... And beyond!

I am currently embarking in a grand adventure! A vital stepping stone in the course of any young woman's life.

I'm planning a baby shower!

No, it isn't the dreary, nail-biting, nerve-scraping, terror-inducing type of baby shower that seems, for some reason, to be the norm. I'm planning it for the most easy-going, laid back, fun person in the world! I think, were I planning your typical shindig for anyone else, I could still have fun with it, but I wouldn't enjoy it nearly as much. K wants a celebration! A relaxed get together for everyone to enjoy and not feel pressured or obligated by.

I went to my sister's house tonight to look at all of her scrapbooking supplies. It was unbelievable how much she actually had! She sent me home with a ton of things that will be so fun to incorporate into the invitations that I'm making. I'll post pictures as soon as I can sort through half of it! I don't know what I would do without her.

Behold, the joys of window shopping!

So, the hubby and I went to his place of employ last night (insert random large furniture company name here) to partake in some day dreams and window shopping. We proceeded to walk in and promptly fall head over heels with just about everything we saw.

I found a bed set, he found a home theater set, and we had a blast laying on all fifteen+ mattresses.

I'm so excited for the day when we can go in ready to make purchases. When that day comes, we'll be debt free, in our own home, and ready to pay for all our furniture outright. No financing for us, thanks!

I don't see two LeBarons, Freddy.

He did it! My husband got the job! He starts tomorrow, first thing in the morning. I don't know who is more excited, him or me. This job is going to make our goals so much more reachable, now. It's going to change everything.

Is it really happening?

Well, after a long and arduous search, it's finally happened. My husband found a full time job! It is still being finalized, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up too much, but it sounds like it should go smoothly. If it does, it would be an answer to my prayers.

If this job of his works out, he keeps his part time job, and I keep both my jobs, we can pay off all debt by July 15th. We could have a decent down payment saved for a house by this time next year. A house! Our very own home!

After four years off constantly saying, "I think things are starting to look up," is it finally happening? I am so blessed..
