Lora and Allen Bierbaum on the island of Kauai, Hawaii.

Allen Bierbaum and I were married on September 29, 2001. So life as a newlywed isn't so new anymore, but things are still great. We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and I'll probably dream about going back there for the rest of my life. Hawaii is SO beautiful!

But until then we're still in Ames, Iowa. Allen is a graduate student at Iowa State University, and I'm a Program Assistant in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development. We enjoy being a two-person family for now, but kids are in our future!

Summer 2004:  We bought a house!  We became official homeowners on June 30, 2004.  Owning a home has been a dream come true.  My favorite parts?  No loud, thumping music from the neighbors (at least not yet!) and a DISHWASHER!  I love it even more than the washer and dryer.  I enjoy the space, and I like being able to do whatever I want, like painting walls.  Here's our house!

Fall 2006:  We're expecting a baby!  Baby Bierbaum will arrive sometime around December 1, 2006.  Allen's hoping she doesn't have red hair like me!
