I recently saw a coffee mug in a gift shop. The Inscription on it was, “Budgets are for Wimps.” I chuckled but then thought about my own budget laziness. It seemed that every month, I would begin with a healthy checking account balance and start spending money. Toward the last week of the month, I was existing on “air” and eating ramen.
It was definitely time to get control, but how? All of the books and all of the internet articles and e-books just didn’t motivate me. Or I began with…Continue

I know when summer is here it is easy to get caught up in vacation mode, relaxing, and spending more time with family and friends. It is easy to see others posting on social media pictures of where they are visiting and it stirs you to want to go away too. I want to encourage you to stick to your budget even though it is summer time. Stay on track with your financial goals if that…Continue

When I meet with people about their budget, many times people think there is no where else they can find money to help pay off debt, or save for a vacation.

Summer is quickly approaching we have three weeks of school left and I am so happy about that! I love Summer, I love the warmer weather, I lived in Phoenix, Arizona for awhile, I don't mind the heat. What I most enjoy about summer is spending time with my kids. Summer gives me a greater opportunity to enjoy them, we are not rushed with school, homework, and other activities.
Here are some…

On our recent family vacation, we went to Idlewild Amusement Park.The park contains a soak zone, children's section and a storybook forest that hasn't changed since it opened in 1956. It is a park that I went to when I was little, and I was happy to take my son there so he could enjoy it as well.
It is also…

Like many people, once I established my own home away from my parents and started my own job, I started to think about how my education had failed me. Yes, I had many years of dedicated schooling around math and science and communications, but some basics alluded me. I knew how to cook, for example, (thanks, Mom!), but I didn't know how to use a drill (I should have taken shop class). I could balance my checkbook, but didn't have the…Continue
I frequently find it difficult to come up with dinner ideas. I get so bored having the same meals over and over. Brandon doesn’t very often have input on dinner, so he is of very little help. To my surprise he came to me the other day and said….
Brandon: Hey mom, I really wished we could have those noodles we had in Colorado with Dad at that one…Continue

Boiling the ocean.
So cliché. We hear those words all the time in corporate America. It basically means you are trying to do way too much within a given endeavor/timeframe. Usually, those projects end up failing because you didn't focus your efforts on the goal at hand and you let things get way out of control to the detriment of your resources.
But those words also have a lot of relevance for startup entrepreneurs, whose budgets are considerably smaller and time to market may…Continue

I love to travel and being a filmmaker has given me all kinds or reasons to go many places. But as my family grew I got tired of long hours in airplane seats and nights alone in hotel rooms. Then, a few years ago I had a flash of inspiration (some might say insanity, but I’m sticking with inspiration). I decided to parlay a project in Germany into a summer adventure for my family of six.
It turned out to be a memorable vacation and taught me a very important lesson: Big…Continue

I LOVE the the look of big, full lashes. Honestly, if you got your lashes on point not much else is needed for your everyday look.

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the chance to try any new wines, I have been searching my normal haunts (Trader Joe’s, Costco, and the Wal-Mart) and have been striking out in finding anything interesting that fits into my Middle-Class wine parameters (under ten bucks a bottle). Then, while on his own perfect brew mission, the Hubs returned from the Total Wine with something different, a Chilean Carmenere, and viola a new bottle to taste and share my thoughts on was…Continue
