Well hello over there! It’s been a while since we posted anything here, but we have a very cute (and demanding!) excuse. peanut butter toast for breakfast! This little guy seems to occupy every spare moment, as well as moments that we didn’t really consider spare in the first place. In case anyone is [...] ...

This is awkward because I’m talking about my boobs. If this isn’t the post for you, please feel free to move on. I won’t be offended. A short nap after dining al fresco one morning… I’ve spent a lot of time over the past few months with my hands physically full, but my [...] ...

Without further ado, I present the complete list of everything we have spent to facilitate breastfeeding in the first 3 months of Little PoP’s life. The Basic Stuff – Pre Birth To give nursing a fair shot, I figured at a minimum I needed nursing bras and an insurance-grade breast pump. The 3 pack of [...] ...

The actual sunset we sailed off into after getting hitched! 10 years ago we made the best investment we could have made. Spending approximately $235, we got hitched by a boat captain and literally sailed off into the sunset together. *sigh* Luckily the bitey kitten was on board with helping DIY around the [...] ...

And just like that, Kitty PoP is no longer the smallest, cutest, or softest resident in the house. Me, a couple of weeks ago… Baby PoP is here! But I don’t really like that moniker. It makes me think of Baby Bop and bring back flashbacks of too many Barney episodes while babysitting my [...] ...

9 months of no work huh? That timeline seems to fit well with some other things we have going on in our world. While Mrs. PoP has been busy creating new life (how cool is that?) her less-employed half has been increasingly…relaxed. When I pulled the plug on the 9-5 I thought that I adapted [...] ...

It was almost five years now when we became a one-car household, something that kindof sticks out here in our neck of the woods where it seems ridiculously common for households (especially retired ones!) to end up with more cars than drivers. No room for a carseat in here! Even more unusual than being [...] ...

Over the last year we’ve taken a big step back from posting every financial detail of our lives on this blog, but I still wanted to do a quick check in on how the year turned out for us financially (even if this is coming about 4 weeks late). The headlines [...] ...

Yesterday we lost one of the greats-Jack Bogle passed away at his home in Bryn Mawr PA. Jack did more in the past 50 years than anybody to move money from the pockets of wall street to the pockets of middle class investors. Mamma PoP introduced me to Jack when I was 15. The PoP [...] ...

I’m so bad at this. I hem, and then I haw. I dance around subjects and avoid others entirely. I drop hints and expect people to pick up on them or piece them together if they want the full story. But I am also very adept at politely answering queries while still not providing the [...] ...
