Hi. No, that is not me being polite and greeting you. It’s actually my way of rubbing in your face that I am going on vacation today…to Hawaii (HI). Pretty clever right?

My job costs money.  Like really, lots of it.  The […]

I hate that most of my blog posts focus around home ownership, but I’m not gonna lie, it’s been on my mind a lot lately. Girl Ninja and I are doing our best to save up $100,000 so we can have the freedom and flexibility to buy what we want, when we want it. Working […]
