It's the birthday boy!


Today is Cache's birthday, he is 31. So far this birthday has been better than last year, he moped around and had a quarter life crisis for an entire week. "I'm 30!wah-hah" "Is that a gray hair?" "look at all the hair I'm loosing". I haven't had the depressing 30th year yet, but come on, can it be that bad?

I picked up his birthday present last night, it has been at my brother-in-laws house for two weeks. I am really excited, because he has wanted a foosball table for years and I caved in and bought him one this year. I can't wait to see his face as he walks in the door and sees it(he is at Fathers and sons with Finley). We might have to have a few playoff games before we leave for an early mothers day celebration in Heber. Poor guy has to share his birthday with me, but he is a good sport about it.

Dear Cache,

Thanks so much for being you! I am grateful to have a husband that helps with dishes, cleaning, ironing,cooking, and diapering. Thanks so much for the patience you show me when you have to help with these things because I didn't do them,I know you would much rather be playing your guitar. Thanks for being frugal (yes, I am grateful for this) and level headed, if it were up to me we would be living beyond our means in a big giant house and paying off maxed out credit cards and driving cars that aren't paid off. And wow am I grateful that you work so hard to provide for our family so we can have food and shelter and clothing and cute shoes. Because of you our lives have much less stress. I love you tons, even more than the day we were married. I hope the next 31 years are exciting, joyful and full of fun.
Love you and S.M.I.L.E!
Carrie

Cache was feeling unappreciated yesterday, so I want him to know how appreciated he is here at home and how much we love him.

Hey; thanks for your comment on my blog! I would be flattered to be included on your blogroll. As far as our cash system, we use Dave Ramsey's method from his book Financial Peace. It has worked really well for us; at the beginning of the month, we cash out items like groceries, dining, clothing, gifts, etc. It really helps you to see where your money is going! Let me know how your cash wallet turns out!
