Did my Net Worth just get cut in half?

June 24, 2013

Quit being a wuss. Subscribe to my blog. 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 […]

We bought a house.

June 19, 2013

How “easy” is getting pregnant?

June 10, 2013

We had a bunch of high school kids over for a summer kickoff party last night and for some reason they all had baby fever. Not that they want to have babies (if that was the case I’m pretty sure Girl Ninja and I would be horrible youth group leaders) but that they want Girl […]
