So what happened after we paid off our house the first time?
In the 5 years following us reaching Baby Step 7…
We saved a lot.
We gave a lot.
We lived a little more, and I’m so glad we did! (Because I can tell you one thing: it was HARD those first 5 years living on such a tight budget! We were ready to eat out a little more and take a few vacations!)
We also experienced life with a new lens: We became parents.Read More
If you’ve followed our financial journey in the past, you know a few important things about me and my husband Will:
We enrolled in Financial Peace University when we were engaged and it CHANGED OUR MARRIAGE.
We followed Dave’s Ramsey’s 7 Baby Steps to a T!
We lived on a tight budget for 5 years, then paid off our first house at ages 25 & 26.
This Fun Friday is for those of us who are just DELIGHTED by clean floors!

I don’t know if that impresses you, or if that grosses you out. I realize I’m taking a big risk here!

I’m pretty excited about this little idea. I’m looking at Fridays on this blog as a free pass - I get to talk about whatever little tip, tutorial, product, or life hack that I want! I know, I know, I plan the rest of this blog out, too. But Fridays are gonna be different, spontaneous, and maybe a little unexpected.Read More
Today, I turn 32!
I LOVE birthdays, and I love parties and celebrations and decorating and cakes and all the birthday things. I am not one of those “low key” kind of people when it comes to birthdays - I like to celebrate every year of life BIG. I don’t mind aging at all… I see it as part of life and want to age gracefully. So the more candles, the better!
But this year, it’s quiet. And I’m LOVING it.Read More
