I absolutely love going to fairs, but we haven’t gone the past two summers because our son used to have such a hard time in the car and it wasn’t worth it for the hour and fifteen to hour and a half or longer in the car to get there. Even 20 or 30 minutes was a struggle and so we tended to stick to trips close to home as ...

Last month, we went to our neighborhood block party and met a bunch of new families with young children like us. When we first moved into our home six years ago, there were really no young kinds around, but fortunately that’s really started to change in just the few years since we’ve become parents.  At the neighborhood party, a group of us decided that we wanted to start more regular meet ...

Ever since I first started working, I’ve always kept some amount of savings in my bank account out of a sheer desire to never spend more than I made. While in high school and college, my income was minuscule, but so was my necessary spending, so I was able to save up a decent amount of money for the time. It was enough to pay for my college books out ...

I’ve been making an effort lately to cut down our grocery store visits, partially out of a desire not to leave the house again once I’ve gotten home for the day but also to get our grocery bill under control. We’ve had some pretty nasty air quality lately due to the bad forest fires all over the northwest (our clothes line drying outside had to be re-washed because they were ...

 Since most of our camping is done in the Pacific Northwest, off season is rainy and somewhat cold, so a tent isn’t the most fun way to travel. We love to travel outside of peak season though, and it starts to get expensive spending money on lodging. AirBnB is a great alternative to hotels ($40 off your first night if you haven’t used them before) but we like to travel often, ...

When first bought our home, we bought near the top of our limit allowed by our lender (my husband was in school on the GI bill and the bank didn’t consider his living stipend to be income, so we had to qualify on my income, which wasn’t very high at the time). Our mortgage came to 35% our gross income, which would make us considered to be “rent burdened” based ...

It’s been extremely hot the past few months for the Seattle area (high 80s the last couple of days) and we’ve broken the record of days with no rain, so it feels a bit of a relief to be leaving August behind. We’ve lived in South Carolina, so while this weather may not be hot and miserable to the same degree, it’s too warm for those of us who grew ...

Last Friday, my husband and I went on our first weekend date night in MONTHS and it was awesome. My husband was given two preseason Seahawks football tickets as a work “bonus” from one of the suppliers he does a lot of business with, so we decided we had to take advantage of the free entertainment. We enjoy watching the Seahawks, but we hadn’t been to a live game in ...

First day home – January 2011Our dog Ellie just turned seven years old last week. SEVEN. I feel like we just brought her home last year. We adopted her when she was five months old and “only” fifty pounds. We tend to be suckers for the animals that are less likely to be adopted (ferret with adrenal disease, bearded dragon missing a foot, toes and part of a tail), so ...
