Jean Chatzky is my new best friend

She doesn't know it yet, but we are going to be tight, I can tell.
BFFs 4Ever!

Especially after she answers my question on The Today Show Tuesday morning.

Yes, you read that right.

My financial question will be answered (or is scheduled to be answered) on Tuesday morning's show.

But how can you tell it is my question? Oh that's easy, because there will be a 20 second video of me asking Jean the question.


I really thought I would be on The Today Show because Matt Lauer was professing his love for me, maybe he remembered me from 1995?

My cousin Maureen and I with our sign, the night before we went to The Today Show. We made it on t.v. too, I have the video to prove it!

Even though Matt said he would join us, he never did. And it's a good thing too, since I met Ben in Cozumel on that trip! Your loss is his gain MATT!

My second appearance on The Today Show or "Today", as we regulars call it, is happening because I emailed a financial question to the Money 911 segment.

I would like to say they picked me because of my world renowned beauty or because they thought my excellent home decorating would make a fabulous background.

They probably picked me because we are like a lot of people. Our 15 year mortgage is now too big, his sales job is paying less than it did a year ago and things are tight.

My question is "should we refinance to a 30 year mortgage?"

I think I know the answer, but I am excited to have Jean (her good friends call her Jean, not Ms. Chatzky) answer it on Tuesday's Today!

Will you be watching?

Is that Matt Lauer with a fro? That's so cool that he held up your sign! HA!

And I'll have to remember to try and see your famous face on the Today Show! WOOT!

McMommy just told me about this - so very cool! I happen to be going to the Today Show tomorrow, too, but I'm not as cool as you are. I'm not actually, legitimately, going to be on the show. I'll be the weirdo on the plaza holding a sign and screaming like crazy. And I'll be cold. When your segment comes on, though, I'll scream, "I kind of know her!" - that is, if my lips aren't frozen shut by that time. ;)
