Regardless of all the details you've posted you need to figure out one thing; what are you going to do in three years. You can keep playing with all the possibilities. Label them with qualifiers such as slim or what-have-you if you want but we have no clue what that means. Come up with a plan. Hell come up with three plans. If you think there is even a possibility that you'll need that money in three years then stick the money into a savings account and work with that. There's no point in investing money you may need as investing it lends risk.

Outside of those specifics investing money is simple.

Broad index funds should form the core of your investments if you're going the stock/bond route - http://jlcollinsnh.com/stock-series/

Come up with an Investment Policy Statement so that you'll know the answer to your question in the future - http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Investment_Policy_Statement
