A Night on the Town to Celebrate

We got our school loans paid off! We decided to celebrate by using the money we would have put toward the next monthly payment to enjoy a night on the town. We went to the Multnomah Jr/Sr Banquet on May 4th and spent the night at the Heathman. The hotel was in walking distance to the banquet and the rain held off, which made for a perfect night. I've never stayed at such a fancy hotel before. We stayed in a corner room on the top floor of the ten-story building and got to sleep on a Tempurpedic bed. (We're thinking about getting one some day.) The hotel staff was great, breakfast was delicious, and I really like valet parking! We had gorgeous downtown views from our room. We enjoyed the banquet at a table for four with the Lockwoods. There was dancing afterwards, but the instruction always lasts way too long so we didn't get much of a chance to practice our swing dancing moves. Thanks, Gina, for letting me borrow your dress!

That is the coolest thing I've heard in a while! I can't wait to pay off my student loans! I'll have to get out of non-profit work to really get 'em done!

Anyway, I think that night out was a really great idea and it's nice to see the Lord smiling on you!
