Keep us posted and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
    Thanks so much MrsRHBtobe! I appreciate the support!

    I will give an update later this week!

        no Problem lady!!!!!! Alot of people don't know about the passport agencies, there's only 4 in the country, but I'm a real impatient person so its nice to get something as important as a passport right away without having to pay extra!

          Update!

          Ok, so he took care it it! YAY!!! Went Walgreen's to get his pic taken (he said it was a horrible pic, I had to laugh!) and got the paperwork all filled out, wrote the check, and now just needs to drop it in the mail. So I guess it cost $145 total. Ouch, but well worth it!!!

          I called the Passport office (he did too, which was surprising!) to make an appointment to get in there and they said you must have proof that you are traveling within 14 days, and I guess it costs $25 onsite (maybe this is a recent update/change?)....beats $60 plus! So since we didn't have documentation that wasn't really an option. :) But that is great to know if we don't get it in time! What a relief! I love piece of mind!

          Thanks for all the responses and support, for those in the same boat, I feel for you! I don't know why men are such procrastinators!!! Uhhh! Drives me mad!

          Thanks again ladies!

              Oh right...driving...that would make sense...you wouldn't have proof. They asked for Boarding passes, or a work schedule. Lame!

              But thanks for your help! I had no idea there was an office right here in Denver! There are only 4 in the country! Dener is too cool!

              BTW, I used to live in Great Falls, I see your from MT! Beautiful country up there! I loved going to Glacier! Those were the days!

                  Haha! Too funny! My dad was in the Air Force, so I was like 3 when I lived there...so too young to be bored or get in any kinda trouble. Small world, huh?

                  A DW girls night would be so fun!

                    I just got a new passport non-expedited and it only took like 4 weeks. You can call and get an estimated timeline. I think you will be okay! phew :)
