Using Your Blog to Organize Your Financial Life

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…

Stick with Your Budget During Summer!

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…

It's an expensive world after all

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…

The case for more home economics classes

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…

Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles

Japanese Hibachi Style Noodles

 

 

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….

Go Big Or Go Home?

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…

how to take 4 Kids to Europe and Love it

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…

My Mascara Review





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. 

I have you tried every mascara you could possibly name.  From $50-$5 for a tube I have tried them.  I must say I am also a huge fan of getting my lashes darkened at the spa.  Great for summer or if you are going on a tropical vacation.  I also love the drama that false lashes add to your…
