I’m 5 weeks or less away from having #BabyPageNo4, a sweet baby girl that we can’t wait to meet. We are busy busy busy preparing for our new baby as well as the holidays. One thing Bubba and I wanted to make sure to do before baby girl comes is to have one last Finance Date Night of the year! So mark your calendars and grab your tickets for the next and final FDN of 2014, which will be on November 15 from 6:30 – 9:30 at Toscana restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City (get your tickets HERE).

NEW: Can’t make it to the live FDN? Have no fear, for the first time we are offering on-air tickets so you can enjoy participating, from the comfort of your own home! Scroll to the bottom for more info.
