Good-bye and Thank You! It’s taken me a few weeks to sit down and write this because I just haven’t found the time. And time is really the main reason I have decided to give up Budget and the Beach after nearly eight years. There was a time several months ago where I thought I […] ...

Not gonna lie. In the last couple of months, I’ve been feeling my focus and productivity going off the rails a little bit. I think it all started with the bad month I had in September. I started searching around for some solutions that would get me back on track. I tried a few apps, […] ...

I can’t think of anything for a subtitle for November! I also only lightly edited it! Tired…sorry! I’m writing this on Thanksgiving weekend, and what else would one do on a holiday weekend except track their net worth, budget for next month (I just threw up in my mouth a little writing that), and blogging?!? […] ...

The idea for this post comes from a conversation I had with some friends while out for a drink Friday night. The idea was to just go to happy hour (something that was planned as part of my $50 entertainment budget for the rest of the month), then go home and eat dinner. But happy […] ...

OMG, I swear it was JUST summer! Ca-razy right? I know this is the time of year where most people start getting a little frantic about the holidays, but November and December have always been kind of mellow for me. I don’t have a lot of traditions, traveling, crazy gift buying or party attending I […] ...

Today I have a guest post on VolleyCamp Hermosa! Hope you’ll check it out and share! Injuries are never fun. But it’s really challenging when it keeps you from doing the things you love to do, like sports or any other kind of physical activity. My injury occurred at the end of August in an […] ...

“I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”-Maya Angelou This is a quote from the great Maya Angelou. It’s often misquoted as, “when you know better, you do better.” The latter misquote insinuates that once you learn something, you never go back to making a mistake […] ...

I thought for quite a long time what I wanted to post as I turn 49. I started not one but two posts that I didn’t like the direction they were going because they started to focus on some negatives in my life. Then I remembered a post I created in 2015, where I enlisted […] ...

Seems like a fitting title to last month! Ha ha! I’m hoping this doesn’t turn into a 2,000 word post, but there is a LOT to talk about regarding the month of September. What Went Down? In case you’ve been wondering why I’ve been posting gnarly pics/videos of my left pinky this past month, back […] ...

Happy…almost fall? I’m not ready to see summer go, even in LA!! Finances Let’s get to it, shall we? My net worth dropped $6,675 this month. This month I’m NOT counting the money I have earmarked in a separate account for taxes. It doesn’t seem right. Either way, it still would have dropped over last month. (Bleep) is […] ...
