Just our luck.

July 9, 2013

We went under contract on our first home purchase the same day Bernanke decided to announce the feds plan to slow down their quantitative easing policy. It was quite frustrating.

June 24, 2013

For three long years Girl Ninja and I have been diligently socking away $2,000 to $5,000 a month in our savings account. As of Friday, we officially hit our goal to have $100,000 in savings. How hot is that? Bow chicka bow wow.  If you’ve tracked our net worth at all over the last few […]
