seeing Dave

We had a blast at Dave Ramsey’s live event on Saturday.   I think we all left feeling motivated and inspired (again) to continue on our journey of making sure we’re debt free and saving more money than ever before.

The sun was in our faces in this photo, but it’s my favorite of the ones we took, except that Corey was taking the photo and not in it with us.

improving

I have photos to post that I took yesterday and today, but I’m feeling a little grouchy and impatient this week. Didn’t you want to know that? Messing with photos is the last thing on my list at this particular moment. The thought of uploading, editing, resizing, etc. Ugh.

Things should be improving soon, though. Our state’s weathermen are predicting snow on Friday and Saturday (yes, this past week, it was in the 80’s). I’m volunteering at the Wizard of Oz Ballet on Friday, on Saturday (my sister’s birthday) a bunch of my family members and I are going to see Dave Ramsey in Texas, Monday is my dad’s birthday and next Thursday my son will be 14.

Who has time to be irritable with all that going on, right? 🙂

Day 82
The tulips in Megan’s garden have begun to bloom.

Snip and Gray had a disagreement about something.

The kids were back in school today after last week’s Spring Break. They were all happy to see their friends again. I was happy to come home to a relatively clean house. It’s amazing how having the house empty keeps it from getting so messy! 🙂

weekend

Day 81

I saw these pretty little flowers at Mom and Dad’s house this afternoon.  I love the color!

Day 80

Like loads of other Twilight fans, we spent a lot of Saturday watching the DVDs.  We have enjoyed all the extras.  I cannot find words to accurately describe the squealing and carrying on that I have listened to or how much I wish I’d have picked up a pair of ear plugs before the big event.   You’d think that after seeing the movie so many times in the theater that seeing Edward Cullen walk into the cafeteria for the first time at home wouldn’t be squeal-worthy.  Well, guess what?  It is at my house.  🙂

I volunteered at the philharmonic orchestra performance on Saturday night.  Turns out that I loved Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and am surprised that I had not known of them before.  I only signed up for that performance because I liked their name.  I’m glad I did.

I’ve found a bunch of their songs on iTunes and will be pre-ordering their new album, How Big Can You Get? A Tribute to Cab Calloway,  that comes out in April.

flowers and dancing

Day 79 I spotted this lovely tree at the edge of a playground as I was driving home Friday after work, so I stopped to get a few photos.

Day 78
Dobby stopped to listen for a second while I whistled a song to him. Then he started pacing/walking up and down the branches in his cage again. I think it looks like dancing when he does that. 🙂

Redbud, Edward and green

Don’t you love the titles I’ve been coming up with? The creative juices are flowing, I tell you.

Day 77 – Redbud tree

Day 76

I can almost hear her screams of joy (again) as she unrolls the poster to see his face. Actually, I think the screams may still be echoing in my head!

Day 75

How’d we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? We painted the lawn green, of course. Then we hunted for rainbows and pots of gold. 🙂 What about you?

birthdays

Between the 15th of March and 16th of April, we have seven birthdays in my family.  SEVEN.
