Oh boy am I glad to finally be writing this post. For over a week now, we’ve been having some major troubles with our website. You may have noticed that our site has been down, or that it’s been loading slowly, or that you haven’t been able to comment. Or if you’re super lucky, maybe you’ve experienced all of those lovely things! But as of last night, we’re officially back in business and switched to a new host!
Our former website host, Bluehost, was a nightmare. When our site was slow or down, they would deny it. And they were unresponsive and slow. Our site was down for three days, and they did nothing about it. At least once a month we had something go terribly wrong. And if there’s one thing you don’t mess with, it’s a couple personal finance bloggers that are OCD about getting every penny’s worth. Bluehost, you are now a four-letter-word on our site. “What a piece of Bluehost.” That’s about as edgy as things are going to get around here, so savor that moment.
So that’s my horror story for the day. And now… Happy Halloween!!! Admittedly, Johnny and I are pretty low-key — okay, lame — when it comes to Halloween. But this year we have a little chubster who’s just begging to be dressed up. Or maybe we’re begging her to let us dress her up. The important thing is, today our girl is an elephant. We spent $13 on her costume from Costco, and we haven’t looked back once.
So without further ado, our nine-month-old elephant:
Admittedly, our girll wasn’t thrilled the first time we put it on her, but she has since come around. Today we’ll be going to Johnny’s office for a Halloween party for the employees’ kiddos. And this evening we’ll be hitting up my sister’s neighborhood for a teeny bit of trick-or-treating. What are your spooktabulous Halloween plans? Oh, and what’s your costume? Johnny and I are wearing wolf shirts and calling it good (don’t judge).
