5 Years

This month marks the 5 year anniversary of my Mom surviving breast cancer. They say once you reach 5 years you are "cured," so it is a pretty remarkable milestone. I love my mom and I am so glad she was a fighter. We threw her a little party to celebrate. Congrats mommy!

In other news, Rod and I are having a lot of fun shopping for houses. We don't know exactly how soon we will buy. Could be soon, could be in 6 months. All I know is that it makes me really excited! We were planning on waiting a little longer, but the interest rates are just ridiculous right now. Even if we don't have any furniture, we'll have have a cute little house (and hopefully a cute little dog!)

We both love our jobs. It's so nice to make money doing what we love. I recently (slightly against my will) started coaching the girl's basketball team. The girls are sweet, so I've ended up liking it more than I thought I would.

Today's snow made it feel like Christmas. I have to admit I'm a little excited. I want to start Christmas shopping - especially at the new stores that opened so close to us. I refuse to wait in line to give a store money though, so we won't be visiting H&M for a little while.

Cheers to being cured Pennie!!

Be sure to factor in a basement apartment when house hunting! Haha...I wish! I think I'm more excited about your future pupper!

Did I ever tell you that I coached a boys bball team? We lost every game. I'm sure you'll do a lot better!

So exciting for your mom to reach such a milestone. Hooray!
And Basketball will be a breeze, remember always the fortune I got that was supposed to be yours.
The end.

Congrats to your momma, and good luck with the house hunting! You should post some of your considerations and then let the people decide! JK, although I'm sure Jozie and Tommy would love that :)


Yay! Congrats to your Mom, AND on the house hunting! Where are you guys looking?
