Melting Pot


Last week We called our BFFs to tell them we had an "announcement" we had to make. We told them we wanted to tell them this BIG news over dinner. I have to say the next 24 hours was SO much fun for me. Jill couldn't stand it... WHAT IS IT?!! Steve called Scott, ....I'm intrigued. Jon called to say.... this better be good it's affecting my work. The thing was the news was really not that big. Well I guess to us it was. They all said their guesses. Kristyns was my favorite....... I think there is no news you just wanted us to get babysitters to go out.Then we made up some story about how we were moving to Pasadena. They almost bought it until Scott lamely said Pasadena is a really nice place. Uhhhh.... OK. The news was that we are finally out of debt!!!!! To make Yo GG Scott had to quit his job, so we had acquired quite a bit of debt. And the Berretts were some of investors that took a HUGE risk on us. So we wanted to take our friends out to dinner to say thanks for supporting us. Of course they still tried to pay.

That IS incredible news. I am sure you two have worked very hard for this! What a wonderful lesson for your children to see....persistance pays off (no pun intended)!

I am really happy for your family!

TOO FUNNY. Cuz I actually couldn't wait to read your whole post and did what I usually do with suspensful books and skipped to the end to find out the end. It helps me get through the bulk of the story if I know things are gonna be okay. I LOVE that you did that and had the thought that you were crazy if you actually had gotten pregnant.
