BOTB Finale

The finale was last night and Nathan’s  band didn’t win, but they did very well!


Here is Home Fries. They were the winning band and were incredible. The guy on the sax is one of Nathan’s really good friends. There several web guys in this band.


I’ll upload Nathan’s soon.

Short Sale Update

We accepted an offer on our MN house.



It’s now up to the bank to decide whether or not to accept the offer. We sent our updated documentation to them. The house is being sold AS-IS. All known issues have been disclosed to the buyers. It could take several months for the bank to make a decision.

Let the Summer Begin (once we finish school this week)

 Yesterday was our first day to visit the pool this summer. I’m sure it will be the first of many!

I’ve completed yesterday and today’s workouts and my arms are like jello. I think that’s a total of 120 pushups total between the two days. My arms are going to look awesome (someday).

Busy Weekend

Ethan and I took a quick trip to MN this weekend with some Christmas money. It was Ethan’s first time on a plane that he remembers. The last time was when we went to Georgia for Luke’s graduation. That was 8 years ago, I think.

It was fun. The flights were smooth. Ethan took lots of photos (that are still on he camera). Now we’re back, ready to finish school this week and take advantage of the Rec Center pool being open!


How About Some Healthy Homework?

For the challenge that Nathan and I are doing, we  had a homework assignment that I thought was interesting.

Write down your responses to the following questions.

1. What are 3 things you’ve done this year that you are proud of? If you can’t think of anything from this year, think back further 🙂

2.What did you do to make those things happen?

3. Who helped you accomplish them?

4. How can you transfer the things you did to accomplish those goals to your goal of getting healthy and losing weight?
