It takes a year to make your house a home.

January 13, 2015

Quit being a wuss. Subscribe to my blog. Been awfully quiet around these parts lately, eh? Yeah. I’d apologize, but to be honest, I’m not sorry. Been keeping myself busy with lots of fun things, and as a result blogging has kind of sat on the back burner. Sorry not sorry?  We moved in to […]

This marriage is NOT equal.

December 16, 2014

I’ve blogged many a times over the years about my Roth IRA and the quasi-obsession I have with making sure I always max it out. Since I love my Roth so much, you would think I would be just as eager to open one up for Girl Ninja. Not so much the case. Homegirl ain’t got […]

Net Worth update: Xmas card edition

December 9, 2014

Why make things easy, when you can make them complicated?

November 17, 2014

Let’s get right to the point today shall we? I go out of my way to ensure my personal finances are significantly more complicated than they should be. In fact, I’d even go as far as to say that I sleep better at night because of it. No, I haven’t lost all my marbles, I […]

How did we make it this far?

November 6, 2014

 Was at a group meeting a few months back and an older gentleman shared an email he received from a friend. The email read…. How Did We Make It this Far? Looking back, it’s hard to believe that we have lived as long as we have… As children, we would ride in cars with no […]
