And we're off..... St. Cloud for the weekend!! We are making a quick trip to St. Cloud and Rice to visit family (the whole extended family on BOTH sides!!) on Saturday and then we'll be back Sunday sometime. I'll be sure to have lots of pics when we get back! Have a great weekend!!

Oh, by the way, for those of you who know us well, you know we are big Dave Ramsey fans (for those of you who don't know--he's a financial guy who has his own radio show on over 300 stations nation wide, has best selling books, teaches from a Christian perspective, has a bible study called Financial Peace University-which is very good!!, etc) and I GOT TO TALK TO HIM THE OTHER DAY!!! WHOOO HOOO!!! I called his radio program (I just listen online anytime between 1-4pm weekdays) and I actually got through!! The first time I called, I tried a few times and someone picked up!! I was so excited, I was on hold and the phone screener was going to tell me when I was next! Then, while holding Brayan, I tried to reach his water cup so I put the phone on my shoulder and my cheek pressed the talk button and it hung up!!!! UGH!!! I was SOO disappointed!! To be able to get thru to a national radio show is pretty much impossible so I figured my chances were over....but I tried back anyway.... After a few times, the same guy picked up again!! He was like 'you just called, right?' And I said "Yes!! but I accidently hung up the phone!!" and he said he was glad that I was able to get thru again. So anyway, after being on hold AN HOUR, he came on and said 'you're up next' yippee!!! I was trying SOOOO hard to keep my kids quiet (which is NOT an easy task!!) and sure enough, RIGHT when Dave came on the phone, Tiernan started banging on the door and yelling 'MOMMMMMMYYYYY! MOMMMMMMY!' ugh.... So anyway, I talked to DAVE!! I was so excited! I told him about our situation and asked what he thought of it and in the end i got a "great question and good job kiddo!" from Dave!! :) That was the highlight of my week...I know, I'm a nerd :) Oh, and his website is in case anyone is curious. He's got an AWESOME book that I would recommend anyone read called The Total Money Makeover.
