A Little Update

Here's a little Roe update. I'm so bad about posting so I thought I'd knock out several posts in one!

  • Jim became a licensed contractor as of January of this year. He's still working out in Fossil (the middle of nowhere) 4 days a week but hopefully that will be done soon and he can be closer to home.

  • We are still looking for houses but because of Jim's new self-employed status, getting financed is next to impossible. They want 2 year job history!

  • We might buy me a new car instead, an Audi A4

  • I'm still working at my boring but reliable desk job, Environmental Insulation (yes, if you use our product you get a nice tax write off)

  • The coffee shop that I've been trying to start for the past few years is finally getting close! We're hoping to open this summer sometime. It's going to be amazing! We'll let you know when the grand opening will music, free drinks, the works!

  • We just started our new indoor soccer league and we won our first game! Woohoo! Last season's track record was pretty bad but we're off to a good start this time. Jim's our goalie and his long legs and arms are perfect for the job! They seriously come out of nowhere and block some ridiculously hard shots.

  • We haven't conceived any children yet!

Vegas 2008!

Last weekend, Jim and I decided on a whim
to go to Vegas and surprise Stephen, Kelly,
Jason and Chelsea. We tried to catch a flight,
but being last minute, they were booked so
we thought we’d be adventurous and drive.
15 hours later, we arrived. Jim got pulled
over going 90 but with the help of his military
ID (it works every time) he got off.
I, wasn't so lucky. I got my first ticket ever.
So unfair.I didn't think I'd enjoy Vegas, but it was
actually really fun. We looked at all of the amazing
buildings, stopped off at the Belaggio fountains,
rode the Manhattan Express roller coaster.
Oh, and Jim screamed the entire time!

So cool!

What a tough driving face

Embarking on our 15 hour adventure

The girls......oh and Jason

Ridiculously large drinks that were refillable!

All the lobbies of these places were amazing!

Did I mention I got my first ticket ever on this trip?
Dang coppers.
More pictures will come soon.
