I’m a bit behind on getting this out (October tomorrow!) so I’m just going to get into it.

Now I don’t mean to sound like such a Negative Nancy… but once again I unloaded my sorrows to BB regarding work, life, money, and our house. My well of patience has about dried up and sometimes I deplete BB’s as well. The good thing is, I finally have wrapped up three projects at work […] ...

Red Bird and I are strong proponents of natural foods and the ketogenic diet as a healthy lifestyle choice. We usually choose to avoid processed foods with all the garbage additives and preservatives. I mean, we stray here and there like anyone. If a co-worker happens to bring in a tub of chocolate chip cookies […] ...

It’s Friday! This means our first Friday FIve Wine Report. BB and I are sitting at our dining table, typing away, listening to John Coltrane radio on Pandora and feeling very sophisticated. It’s been a rough week, friends. Sometimes I wonder if listening to FI podcasts at work are doing me more a disservice than […] ...

If we haven’t already mentioned it before, BB and I are obsessed with wine. We started a blog about Virginia wineries a few years ago but we had to shelve it. We are the first ones to admit it was an expensive hobby. We would go to the wineries at least twice a month and […] ...

Other than the epic stair rail painting, our kitchen cabinet painting project was a BB and RB DIY project success, except with a lot less drama and a lot less money. Our original builder’s grade cabinetry was the color of a bloated CEO’s executive desk from 2005. I’ve been fascinated by DIY ever since I […] ...

OK, finally!  I’ve been really looking forward to this post.  I’ve been wrapped up the last 2 weeks studying for a certification test at work so had to put this on the back burner. We made our plan and this is our chance to look back at the very first month and see what happened […] ...

I love DIY but whenever I’ve attempted a project I make two very crucial mistakes: 1) I underestimate how much time, effort, money, and skill are required. 2) I overestimate my abilities. Because of this and because of Blue Bird’s reluctance on starting these DIY projects, I’ve put them on the back burner. Yet, since […] ...

Blue Bird always calls me a Broadcaster. I tell everyone what I’m thinking and planning. There are some things maybe I should keep closer to the chest but I can’t help it! I can’t keep my beak shut! Once BB and I decided we were going to expedite our path to FI and sell our […] ...

Before Blue Bird and I had even heard of the FIRE community, we were visiting his parents in New England this past June.  All of a sudden this idea dropped into my head. If our house is expensive and more than we really need, should we sell it? Here’s the thing: BB and I LOVE […] ...
