To this day, I am still in awe. In awe of where I am today. In awe of how ridiculously blessed I am. And in awe that I still get to wake up every single day next to my best friend. I mean seriously, LOOK AT HER! How in the world did a schlub like me end up with this beautiful woman?? And how in the world has she convinced herself to stay married to me for the past 5 amazing years?! It is one of … [Read more...] about I Am Blessed
Today I'm reposting an oldie (but a goodie). We have an awesome 4th, and enjoyed family, friends, food and fireworks! And as someone who is always budget-conscious, the question I always wonder after every 4th is, "So, how much did you spend?!". This year, we spent $45 total.

So I figured I should probably start putting together some reviews of the cards … [Read more...] about Credit Card Review: Chase Ink Bold and Ink Plus
I don't have time for a great write-up of anything, as I'm still catching up from being gone for almost 2 weeks! So here's some pics of our free vacation on credit card points :) There would be pictures of us all over Disney and at the pool, but we were ON VACATION! Which means phones and such were put away, drinks and food were out, and we enjoyed the sun without have … [Read more...] about Back From Vacation!
I feel like we just talked about this a few months ago. Oh wait, we did. Back in April, Michelle and I went to Portland and stayed in a fancy pants hotel for free, along with using our Chase Sapphire Preferred rewards card cash back bonus to pay for the meals, wine tasting and bottles of wine.
