New Years Resolutions

  It’s almost New Years!  I couldn’t be any more excited to leave this past year behind and enter into the new.  There were many high points — my business taking off and buying a new house — but there were so many low points that I’d rather leave 2014 behind. Before we can usher in 2015, it’s

We’re Married!

Why have I been so silent lately?  I’ve been busy getting married!  As I mentioned in a previous post, we tried to do our entire wedding and honeymoon for $2000 or less.  We came extremely close, and had we not splurged on the honeymoon ($45 for breakfast?) we would have came in at slightly less than our budget.  Still,

Reuse Bubble Wrap Shipping Envelopes!

The mailman probably hates me.  It seems almost every day I get another package in the mail.  Now, I’m not quite in hippy, tree hugging territory yet, but my fiancé and I have been trying our best to be as environmentally conscious as can be.  We’ve upped our recycling habits, opt for items that are

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to the best fiancé and father to my son that I could ever ask for!  You, my dear, are truly a wonderful man, and I can’t wait to see our son grow up and become as amazing as a man as you.  I know he will be awesome, just like his dad,
