Snow... again!?

Okay, I'm a lover of all things snowy, don't get me wrong. But, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAKE IT STOP. The trouble is that I'm at work and when it snows, everyone and their mother decides to hibernate and not come in to the office. Which then equals more work for me. It is days like this that I wish I was 8 years old again, so that I could have a snow day to go and play with my friends...

Bye-Bye Wedding Debt

Jeremy and I are of the very fortunate few that started our marriage with little-to-no debt (mortgages don't count!!). The only thing we had to charge throughout our whole event was a few last minute items and the hotel from our honeymoon. We got our tax return back last week and our credit card is officially PAID OFF. We were even able to pay off one of Jeremy's two student loans. The only debt we're looking at now is the new car!

I am excited to be able to put money back into savings again. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that nothing comes up and it get's to stay that way - mmkay?

YAY for us!

Mommies with Cents

Okay, first and foremost - don't let the title fool you. No, I'm not a mom (unless you count my fur-child Harley Ray)!

Mommies with Cents is a website started by a couple of cool ladies. One of which happens to be one of my favorite people - Holly. Their site provides all kinds of information for people (obviously their focus is on mom's) that are budget conscious. Every day there are new updates for big sales, discounts, budget friendly recipes, etc etc etc. One of their recent updates is to win a handbag! I know, you are all shocked that I would need another bag, right?? Shh! I'm hoping Jeremy doesn't read this and call Holly! :)

Take a minute and scope them out - I promise it's worth it! (Check out the link to the left people! )

Mt. Baker

We made our second trek up to the mountains yesterday. This time we went north and hit up my favorite spot - Mt. Baker! It was BEAUTIFUL day on the hill. There was fresh snow, in the afternoon the sun was shining, and we did great! We got in at least twice as many runs as we did at Stevens in January. I am feeling a lot better about my snowboarding skills and Jeremy is getting really good! There is nothing like snowboarding on a weekday in fresh snow. No crowds, no lines, no sharing a chair... pure bliss! I promise to take the camera up with us next time to get us in action!
