My Favorite Blog

My favorite blog has to be This site is everything. Before my blog, and even now, I would browse Pinterest for budgeting tips and inspiration. My favorite posts usually came from this site. Jordan is an inspiration to women that aspire to be financially free… soooo me!!

10 Random Facts About Me

My husband and I have been together since we were 18 year old babies!! 14 years strong guys!

We bought our first house this year! Got a two family…. always making money $$$$.

I used to own over 100 pairs of shoes… Miss you shoes!! But that was bad budgeting all around.

I LOVE coffee. I usually go for it black with a little sugar. But occasionally treat myself to a yummy latte.

I worked retail for over ten years!! It was a fun job, but too many hours and stress. But I learned a lot!!

My favorite job was multi store manager for Skechers. It was an amazing company to work for.

My favorite city is NYC. I’m from MA so I know I’m supposed to say Boston…. but I just love NY. Sorry guys.

I love playing vide games. I blame my husband for that one.

I walked down the isle at my wedding to an instrumental Guns N Roses song.

I am horrible at spelling. Yes, I write for my blog…..but I need to proof read about 50 times. Then have my husband go over it.


My Nominator’s Questions and My Answers

What’s your favorite household chore? This is tough because I really don’t like any household chores lol But if I had to pick a favorite it would be laundry. I love the clean smell of laundry!! And it’s so satisfying to have a closet full of clean, fresh clothes.

What is your ideal life? It would be financial independence so that I would be able to travel all the time. My husband and I are trying to create our own businesses so that we can both work from home and enjoy life more! I want to travel around the world and eat! #lifegoals

How would you impress a person that you met for the first time? By having a conversation! I try to be modest and not talk about myself too much, so trying to impress someone would be tough. I try not to care too much about impressing other people.

If you were given the chance to be reborn, would you be? No. Everyone has ups and downs, myself included. But over all my life is pretty great. My husband and I were born across the world from each other and some how found one another. I would never trade what we have to see if it could happen again.

Would you be comfortable to discuss religion or politics with anyone? Why? No because I don’t know enough about either subject. I am not a religious person at all. And I have tried to stay away from politics for a long time. I have been getting more involved with politics lately since our country is in this tough place. But I am definitely not comfortable talking about it unless it’s with someone I’m close with.

Al Fresco or indoor dining? Indoor dining. I’m an indoor girl in all aspects of life haha

If you are asked to give up a body part what would it be? Wow, this is extreme haha I would have to pick an ear I guess. I have two so I guess I could live without one.

What particular historical event would you like to alter? Why? Hmm  I would have to change the outcome of the presidential election in the US this year. I know I just said that I don’t like to talk about politics, but I know I’m not the only one that wishes we could go back and alter that mistake.

Would you rather be super ugly but filthy rich or good-looking but poor? Definitely ugly and filthy rich! As long as my husband would still want to be with me if I was butt ugly! hehe

What do you think the biggest threat to our environment is these days? What can you do to help? I think that the biggest threat is global warming and all of the factors that are causing it. To help I try to reuse and recycle as much as possible. Things like gardening, selling or donating unused items rather than throwing them away is a big one.
