In addition to a budget spreadsheet that Fiance put together, I have created my own "planner binder"... Read more
The past few days I've been thinking a lot about what I've accomplished in the last year.

I had a great five minute happy moment this morning. Jason Mraz's new CD is out (released today), and while I haven't bought it yet, I was able to listen to it on Spotify. That combined with a freshly made black french-press coffee (cinnamon haz... Read more
Spent the weekend back at home with our parents again, except this time we had a little bit more control. I was able to meet my stepping goals both days, and while I did not keep track of what I ate, I made smart choices which paid off in the en... Read more
