About

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I decided to start this blog as a way to hold myself accountable about money. Outside of money, below are a few tidbits about me:

  • I’ve been married for 13 years and have 3 awesome kids. We live in the Pacific Northwest.
  • I’m a reformed shopaholic and completely changed my shopping ways.
  • I still struggle with controlling my dining out/entertainment budget even though I’ve stopped buying shoes, clothes & accessories.
  • I also struggle with sticking to a budget and I’m working hard to get that under control.
  • I’m a fanatic about running and working out.
  • I’m obsessed with organizing and keeping my home clutter free.
  • I secretly aspire to be a lawyer and an interior decorator.

  1. Anne of Green Gables is one of my favourite books too! Well, Anne of the Island and Anne of Ingleside to be specific. Can you recommend a good Nora Roberts to start out with? I love a good recommendation from someone with similar reading taste!

    • I love the whole series!

      As for Nora, the first book I read of hers was “Honest Illusions” and I was hooked. She usually does a trilogy and the current set is about a group of best friends who are in the bridal business together. She also writes under JD Robb, but I haven’t had a chance to read those because I think they might be a bit more fantasy related. Check out her website here: http://www.noraroberts.com/index.html.

      • Yes, JD Robb is her urban fantasy pseudonym. I love UF, so really enjoy those books. Haven’t read any of the Nora Roberts ones yet.

  2. Oh a girl after my own heart.

    I too struggle with not dining out. That’s a big part of our credit card debt 😦
    I love to run too. Ran my first half last year but now just run to keep me healthy and hopefully lose a few pounds.
