My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)



I'm excited today.. I have a Non Scale Victory.....It's a Financial Victory! I have completed my emergency fund... Wooo hoo!!!
Now, to get to that pesky debt! I'm inching my way towards becoming debt free! :-)

Anyways... The weekend is finally here! I'm super excited about it! John has the day off today, and I have a feeling that when I get home, I'm going to have a new family member. He has had puppy fever for quite some time, so we may have a new dog. I'm excited, and a little nervous at the same time. My dog is so tiny, and he wants a big dog.. I don't want Roxcee to be a snack! LOL He is getting a puppy though, so at least while it's small, they can get to know each other and become friends. :)

Tonight starts hockey season.. John and I are HUGE Aeros fans, so we're going to the opening night game tonight. We have a partial season (15 games) and I'm excited for it to get started..

Next weekend - it's my 15 year high school reunion. I don't know how I feel about this yet. It's a very casual one at a bar, and it was arranged on Facebook. It'll be interesting to see some people, that's for sure. John doesn't care to go, but I'm sure he would if I really, really want to go! :-)

Where is the time going? I can't belive we're almost halfway through October already.. I need to start Christmas shopping - SOON!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!

We have a 65 pound dog and a 16 pound dog and they are best friends. I'm sure yours will be too.

Congratulations on almost-debt-freedom! That will be one of my next goals (it'll take a couple of years) but we are progressing that way.

Your reunion will probably be fun. The more casual, the better. I was really surprised how much I enjoyed my 20-year, and I'm still in touch with many of the people on Facebook. It's pretty cool!

You have a great weekend too. :)

That's an incredible victory!!! I think I need some pointers!!! :-)

I can't wait to read about - and even see pictures - of the new puppy!!! That should be fun!!

If it's been a long time since you've seen these people (from High School) it may be really fun to get back in and see how much everyone else has changed too. I think it'll be fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!
